Puca's Mischief

This card is a lot more powerful than it looks.  Being able to snatch your opponent's stuff every turn is a powerful effect, even if you do have to give something up.  And effects like these are always easier to break than they look.  In Limited, this usually means exchanging creatures for marginal upgrades or jacking the creature they just dropped a God Aura on.  In Constructed, nothing looks good yet, but it all looks funny.

Constructed- 2
Casual- 4
Limited- 2.5

Like Donate or Gauntlet of Chaos, the value of this card is to give your opponent something that will actively hinder his ability to play the game. I've seen it used with Colfenor's Plans. In a deck designed to do something like that, it's pretty good. Otherwise, not so much. It's pretty fiddly to pull off, so good luck!

Puca's Mischief

An intriguing card.  it is not seeing play because it is really a tricky one to play with.  You are relying on using your opponents strategies to win.  I think to use it the cards you want to switch off have to be pretty useless to your opponent.  Cards with colored activation costs might work (then they are likely only good for you).  Cards that boost mana (artifacts) might work for the cheap things (especially late in game).  I do like this in multiplayer when there may be lots of options.  A fun card if nothing else.

Constructed: 2.5
Casual: 4
Limited: 2.5

Puca's Mischief

 

Constructed: This card screams............Okay it does not scream anything. For Standard or Block it does not seem to do anything worth will. But, maybe somebody will make it work.

 

Casual: Lets play with the Bombshell. This idea was brought to me by one of our players who is using this card already. Crazy stuff.

 

Limited: Unless you want to fill you deck with stuff(crap) to try to steal their bombs. Draft not a top pick, but would hate to see it played against me.

 

Overall its a fun card for the casual arena.

 

Constructed: 2

Casual:4

Limited:3

Aethereal Tuesday - Puca's Mischief

Kind of like Donate, but you get something in return each time you Donate something. This might be fun in a deck that has a lot of cards with a lot of really bad upkeep effects (think something like Force of Nature, although he's not in standard anymore). Unfortunately, that will never fly in constructed because it requires you to play a deck full of cards that will hurt you big time if you can't get this card on the table. Great for casual, however.

In limited, I'd pass, because it's much harder to abuse, and typically you'll end up on the wrong end of the deal since you have to take something with a lesser mana cost.

Constructed - 1.5
Casual - 4
Limited - 1
