My record for assessing niche or unusual cards is not, I have to admit, all that great. I didn't think Mirrorweave would be much use because of its awkward position on the mana curve and the fact that having a copy of your opponent's creature or another one of your own creatures is not always that useful. I sort of forgot about all the tribal lords people are playing with now; Mirrorweaving all your creatures into Wizened Cenn, Imperious Perfect, or Lord of Atlantis is quite the beating. It might be better in block constructed than outside it, but it's certainly worth at least one look anywhere.

This card has some potential, it's mostly tier 2 since its primary purpose would be a win condition but you'll need a decent number of creatures for this to worth, and keep in mind its target has to survive the sack for this not to get countered on resolution. Too bad Slaughter Pact is running rampant. It's still very powerful when it works which means it's more of a Johnny card, and a great one at that too.

This card is already showing up in decks. It has good combo and aggro potential. Expect to see this card in Standard for a while.


           
It is harder to abuse this card in limited, but there should still be plenty of ways to utilize it to some advantage.

Constructed: This card has already seen alot of top level play with Kithkin doing crazy combat tricks. So long as you have blockers and block correctly, you should be alright. It's a great card, just glad it's a rare and cost 4 mana makes it balance.

 

Casual: I am sure it has been spotted amongst the slivers. It's even possible to put in a goblin deck, if it was eithe white or blue.

 

Limited: If you have the right creatures it can win you the game. It would be hard to use in a sealed pool it the right creatures. Still a good card just something you can rely on. Drafting it would be a high pick, but there are some uncommons that are a little better but it would be a tough call.

 

Overall a great card. In the right deck it can win games very fast.

 

Constructed: 4

Casual: 4

Limited: 3
