Reveillark

It kinda bugs me having to review cards that are the fuel for top-tier combos.  Obviously the card is getting played in the highest tier tournament decks, but that's because of the combo.  What are the card's own merits?


In this case, not too bad.  It's a 4/3 flier for five mana.  When it dies, you get a few small creatures back from the graveyard.  And if you need those small creatures more than you need the 4/3 flier, you can have them now for one extra mana.  It's a solid beater with built-in card advantage.  That's good enough for Limited, and in Constructed, well...


Constructed- 4.5

Casual- 4

Limited- 4

The fact that there is a whole deck named after this card in Standard is almost a sufficient statement about its quality on its own. The rest is provided by its versatility and broad applicability - it can form part of a combo, or attack for four flying damage, or give your creatures resilience to removal. From Standard's Blink decks to Vintage's Hulk Flash and everywhere in between, Reveillark is certain to be a mainstay for years to come.
 
Constructed: 5/5
Casual: 5/5
Limited: 4/5
