Kitchen Finks


Barring wither shenanigans, this works out to a 3/2, and a 2/1, and 4 life, for three mana.  It's a decent price the first time, but when it persists, you're gaining a major victory in the attrition war.  Not only that, it works its way into both the green midrange deck and the white weenie deck.

Constructed- 3.5

Casual- 3.5

Limited- 3.75

Thursday - Kitchen Finks

A very efficient creature for the investment. The first time you play him, you're getting a miniature version of the popular Loxodon Hierarch. However, unlike his bigger counterpart, when he dies, he comes back! This is especially good if you can find a way to repeatedly take the -1/-1 counter from Persist off so he can keep coming back over and over, but in and of itself this is a very good and efficient card because of the card advantage he provides.

In limited, same deal. If you're green or white, you play him.

Constructed - 4
Casual - 3
Limited - 3.5

Someone told me that Kitchen Finks is a bad Loxodon Hierarch and Loxodon Hierarch is a bad Exalted Angel. That seems a little pessimistic to me, since the persist ability on the Finks is good with that cute Enchanted Evening / Patrician's Scorn deck. Aven Riftwatcher is the better all-purpose foil to red decks for this season, but the Finks certainly have their place, and I suspect that they will be very widely played both in casual play and in competitive play come the Alara Standard season.

This card will make it in constructed. It gains some life and has to be killed twice. If it had any kind of evasion it would be amazing, otherwise, it is just a solid guy. Same story for limited.

Constructed: 3

Casual: 4

Limited: 3

Constructed: This card is already being used for Standard. Gaining life twice with this card, and it is a 3/2 for 3 mana. Mono white or green decks can use it with no problem. Great card for block.

 

Casual: The name will get all of the casual players wanting this card for their decks and collection.

 

Limited: Another solid creature with life gain and persist. Not the best, but a extra 4 life can make the difference either way. Top pick for white and green, hate drafting it not as high, but I would probably take it just so nobody else can.

 

Overall a great name and a solid card for any format. We will see if the hype over this card is any good.

 

Constructed: 4

Casual: 3

Limited: 4
