Scarblade Elite

Assassins are notoriously small creatures heavily reliant on their abiltiies, so it's small wonder they'd end up in the graveyard.  Trouble is, this card gives a creature type an ability they already have plenty of.  It doesn't add anything to the Assassin tribe, and an Assassin deck would have enough of this sort of effect already.


Constructed- 2

Casual- 3

Limited- 1.5

"Assassin tribal?!" you might complain. "What am I supposed to do with that?" Don't forget what block we're in: Nameless Inversion is an assassin. Mothdust Changeling is an assassin. Chameleon Colossus is an assassin. Murderous Redcap is an assassin (you can hit about three creatures in one turn with that combination!). Sure, it might not make it at PTQ level. But then again, most things don't.
 
Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 2/5
