Akroma's Memorial

Seven mana is a high price to pay for something that doesn't win you the game in and of itself. But I like the fact that you can drop this and then swing with whatever creatures you have, greatly modified. Now if only it gave itself protection from red, so it could dodge Shatter-type effects. In Constructed, this is likely to be too much mana for not a direct enough impact. But in Limited, where games drag on and artifact hate is never maindecked, this could be a veritable bomb. And of course there's casual, where everyone wants to turn their Grizzly Bears into Bears of Wrath.

Constructed- 1.5
Casual- 4
Limited- 4

Akroma's Memorial

A card that, if your opponent cannot deal with, will probably win you the game. However, there are much better win conditions available, as a) this requires other creatures to do anything, and b) it's fragile. Just stick to the many better win conditions that are around in Standard, and if you're running an aggro deck, you'll never hit 7 mana anyway.

I bet this will see a lot of play in casual. Akroma is very popular, and giving all your creatures her abilities will probably be popular too.

In limited, it's expensive, but it wins you the game if you drop it.

Constructed - 2
Casual - 4
Limited - 4

Akroma's Memorial

So this is the final card of the Akroma set and by far the worst.  For 7 mana all of your creatures become the original Akroma.   I just feel that this card is not that great.  It looks good to turn all of your creatures into beasts but you still have to creatures to boost up.  At this late in the game when you drop 7 you want to win the game.  This card may do it but doesnt guarantee anything.  Now against red/black decks this card will probably win you the game as it makes all of your stuff untouchable.  Will see some play in weenie decks to finish off opponents.  It's biggest problem is it gives many abilities but no addition to the power of the creatures.

Constructed - 3
Limited - 3

MTG Rules Advisor
Akroma's Memorial:

Well, this selection is in honor of Memorial Day. It's certainly an interesting card and does pay tribute to Akroma very well, however, the card itself is overcosted by at least 2. If it were 4 or 5, I'd be happy to play it, in limited at least. For what you get, it is probably costed properly by design at 7, however, it is unplayable at that cost.

Constructed: 1/5
Casual: 2/5
Limited: 2/5

Wow, That's a lot of keywords! But for 7 mana, I can a lot of stuff
that will essentially win me the game. Simic Sky Swallower comes to
mind for the 7 mana spot.

But let's say this is already out for some reason, you still need to
have a decent size body for the abilities to shine. For example,
trample doesn't do much with a 2/2.

In casual, my friend used it, but seeing as how he never used it as
he lost every time he had this in his hand, you know this card is bad.

Constructed: 1/5
Casual: 2/5
Limited: 2/5
