Mystic Enforcer

A 3/3 pro: black is always nice, especially if you're playing G/W anyway and don't need all your creatures to be Kithkin or whatever. Then later it becomes a 6/6 flyer with pro: black, for only four mana. That's the real power here. I'd say any deck that can cast this and wants some defense against Shriekmaw and Slaughter Pact should at least think about it.

In Limited, I'd take it first pick and then try to make either green or white one of my main colors at least, so I could splash for it. If it came to me, and I were in green or white, I'd almost definitely take it.

Constructed- 3
Casual- 3.5
Limited- 4.5

Mystic Enforcer

Immunity to black removal is ridiculously good everywhere Mystic Enforcer is playable - not quite as much as it could be right now because of Damnation being played so much, but still good. Even against non-black decks, it's still a 6/6 flying creature for four mana a lot of the time, which is better than playable. If you fear it getting caught up in the Withered Wretch / Tormod's Crypt anti-graveyard backlash, you might want to play something else, but if not, it's very strong.

It's pretty hard to get Threshold right now in Standard without Dredge (except for that land with Dredge, but no...), so this guy's use is much lower right now. It is immune from Shriekmaw though so it gains some points there. It's still good, but there's nothing to go along with it and it loses points there.

In casual, a 4 mana 7/7 flier is pretty tempting and dodges pretty much every non-Wrath of God removal. In multiplayer, everyone's gonna start killing you if they see this out and they can't stop it. So have fun getting it out past the barrage of counterspells and field removal.

In limited, this thing is huge. With Threshold, it's unstoppable.

Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 3/5
Limited: 4/5
