Dragon Fodder

I know this card is fairly popular right now, but I don't particularly like it. I always thought it didn't do enough on its own, and drawing one in a hand without support (devour creatures, Nantuko Husk, Torrent of Souls, Siege-Gang Commander) is bad times, as is topdecking it late in the game - good luck against Elspeth or Garruk, little goblins. Don't get me wrong, I do understand why it is being played, as it interacts favorably with those cards I mentioned and many more besides. In limited you can often afford to wait and set up your Thunder-Thrash Elder, a kind of play you often don't have the luxury to make in constructed.

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

Dragon Fodder

If only it were an instant. However, it is not. As a sorcery, this is only a fair to moderate card to use. There are a few token decks that might like this. Paired with Sprouting Thrinax and Gargadon, you may have something. First turn Gargadon, Second Turn Fodder, Third Turn Thrinax with Gargadon already at 8 you have some options :). In limited, you can always use a chump block but I would not draft it high.

Dragon Fodder

 

Constructed: Great card to use with all of the Devour creatures that are available.

 

Casual: For the cheap casual decks, or for the new players this is a great card.

 

Limited: If you a one of the Devour bombs that are out there, than this is the card or cards for you.

 

Overall a good card. To bad it did not have tribal.

 

Constructed: 3

Casual: 4

Average. In constructed devour isn't really Tier1 so dragon fodder isn't exactly that useful. In limited if you can draft a decent Jund deck then it may find a place in the deck. The only problem is that by itself its is fairly subpar. In casual it will nearly always find a place in Jund decks.
 
Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 3/5
