Wort, the Raidmother

It lets you copy all your red or green instants and sorceries.  It even supplies you with the tokens you need to tap to make the copies. And it's a Goblin, which means a lot of decks are very happy right now.

Constructed- 3.5
Casual- 4
Limited- 4

Thursday - Wort, the Raidmother

This thing's effect is pretty powerful, to say the least. The ability to copy all the red and green spells you play, and have the creatures necessary to do so right away, is pretty strong. Unfortunately this card has two things going against it: it costs six mana, and it's only a 3/3. Six mana is an awful lot for something that can get Incinerated right off the board and doesn't win you the game, especially for a red deck. So, I don't see this getting much play.

In limited, however, this is much better. Even if you only get to use the conspire a couple of times, it can give you a huge advantage.

Constructed - 2
Casual - 3
Limited - 3.5

Wort, the Raidmother
 
The dark world's version of Wort is at least as powerful as the original, if a little expensive for a constructed deck. Still, copying a hellbent Demonfire or a Warp World is something everyone can get behind.
 
Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 2/5

Wort the Raidmother

For six mana it had better do something really good.  Conspire is good (especially with cheap red burn) but with cheap red burn, you hope to have other options on turn 6 (like winning).  Could be fun in a casual deck.  Nothing to write home to the raidmother about.  In limited, however,20this could be really good where creature removal is sparse and a table full of conspiring dudes is imminent.

Constructed: 2
Casual: 3
Limited: 4

Wort, the Raidmother

 

One day left for Eventide!

 

Constructed: A little to expensive for Standard or Block. Good card for Goblins, have not seen a green/red Goblin deck in any format.

 

Casual: Goblins are always played with burn spells. So this should fit in just fine.

 

Limited: This is a great card to build a green/red beatdown deck with. Even the 6 mana gets you 3 creatures. That is a big plus in Limited. There are a lot of good red and green spells to conspire with in Shadowmoor.

 

Overall a good card for casual and usually a bomb for limited, depends on if you get some good Sorceries or Instants.

 

Constructed: 2

Casual: 3

Limited:4
