Creakwood Liege

Protip: The Liege buffs the tokens it makes up to 3/3.  Which is good, since the Liege itself is only a 2/2.  It probably has one of the best extra abilities of the Eventide Lieges, but at 2/2 it just dies too easily.  If you're playing black/green, you'll play this, especially since you probably have a way to regenerate it or reanimate it.  But don't be surprised when it dies quickly.  At least you'll have tokens...

Constructed- 2.5
Casual- 4
Limited- 3.5

Wednesday - Creakwood Liege

Another good card in the liege cycle. Unfortunately, this thing does have a big fat target on its butt, and he dies to pretty much any burn spell. Considering that red is a top tier deck right now, I don't expect this to see play unless that changes. I'd probably still play him in a B/G deck anyway, though, because if your opponent cannot deal with him, you will overwhelm them with an army of 3/3s.

In limited, this is powerful, but the color requirements are awfully steep unless you're solid B/G. Still, 3/3 tokens every turn will eventually win you the game.

Constructed - 2.5
Casual - 4
Limited - 4

How many times did you have to read the card before you realized that the tokens will be 3/3 as long as the Liege is in play? Looks a lot better now, doesn't it? It's probably not enough to dislodge the two-mana Phyrexian Arena (Bitterblossom) from constructed decks, but he's still far from useless or boring. Paradox Haze loves this guy.

Creakwood Liege

 

Constructed: He looks good, he smells good, well maybe, actually it does not have no smell at all, except the one that got Big Red spill on it. Anyways. Not seen it in Standard or Block, I think it is a little to small, a 2/2 for four. It's ability makes up for it's size. For it being green and black, when it comes into play it becomes the big red target to kill.

 

Casual: This is a okay card for green and black decks. Alot of people like Horrors, so he can go into a mono black Horror deck a start pumping them up. Like I said the size does matter with some casual players.

 

Limited: This the card you would save your Unmake for. Being a rare, I would pick it over alot of removal. Sealed deck if there is enough green and black or hybrid creatures to support him I would build a deck with him. I would not rely on this Liege for the win condition, but it will put pressure on your opponent to take care of him or be over run by a lot of Worms. BIG Worms! I hate Worms.

 

Overall a great creature that goes good with any Stompy or Rock type deck. It's killable by alot of different spells so it is not the best we seen so far. If you have seen 'The Magic Show' on YouTube, checking it out.

 

Constructed: 3

Casual: 3

Limited: 4
