Realm Razer
 
The more I think about this creature, the more I like it. Historically, the wrinkle in powerful disruptive effects like Armageddon and Blood Moon was that they didn't do anything to put pressure on the opponent, other than disabling his lands; you often had to mulligan until you found them along with a cheaper creature and hope it didn't get killed. Creatures like Desolation Angel and Magus of the Moon addressed this problem, while being nominally easier to remove (though it can be difficult when you don't have any lands). Realm Razer is a solid follower in that tradition, although it lacks the Angel's evasion and the Magus' cheap price tag - there's nothing worse than setting up your awesome Armageddon plus 4/2 Beast turn only to have it pre-empted by a Chameleon Colossus. Fortunately, the Razer is in the same colors as Ajani Vengeant, Sarkhan Vol, and Elspeth, any of which complement it nicely.

Realm Razer

 

Constructed: A bit to expensive for what it does. The 2 toughness is a real draw back.

 

Casual: This could be a real fun card to play around for multi-player.

 

Limited: I do not like for my lands to be gone to. Not a high pick on my list.

 

Overall not a bad card just takes a little work to make a deck for fun to use him in.

Good luck.

 

Constructed: 2

Casual: 3

Nice card. It's becoming a key piece in fighting the mana hungry QnT decks. It also functions as a good finisher in aggro decks. The only problem is that you generally have to be ahead in the creature race otherwise your opponent wil just keep beating you done. Then again if your in Naya colors then you should have the biggest creatures anyway.
In limited drop this with bigger creatures on the board and thats basically game right there. Keeping that in mind, if you have a razer in your deck it might be a good idea to sandbag your lands towards the late game so you can still lay them down after you drop the razer
In casual, if your in multiplayer everyone will gang up on you when you drop this so watch out

Constructed - 3.5/5
Casual 3/5
Limited 3.5/5
