Aerie Mystics

Limited likes this just for being a 3/3 flier for five. The ability to make your whole team shrug off removal spells for a turn is just gravy. But in most other formats, it's not very good gravy. Three mana to counter a kill spell is nice, but do you really care that it gives blanket protection to all your creatures? If your opponent has more removal spells to try and hit your creatures with this turn, couldn't he play them in response to the ability? And Constructed expects more for five mana than a 3/3 flier with a 3-mana reactive ability.

Constructed- 2.5
Casual- 3
Multiplayer- 3
Limited- 3.5

Aerie Mystics

A 3/3 flying creature for five mana usually suggests draft and sealed play, but the activated ability makes it a little more interesting. Still, when you need to protect multiple creatures from something, it's usually something that shroud wouldn't protect them from anyway. In the aforementioned limited games, the Mystics' ability basically means that they'll be the first creature targeted by just about any spells - preferably while you're tapped out from playing them.

Constructed: 1/5
Casual: 2/5
Limited: 3/5
Multiplayer: 2/5

Aerie Mystics

 

Constructed: To slow for Standard. Maybe Block.

 

Casual: Thinking about dusting off the old Bird deck.

 

Limited: These are good solid flyers to pick up for Esper build. I was able to grab 2 in a SSC draft once. They are real good.

 

Multiplayer: These little birdies are ok.

 

Overall a good creature card.

 

Constructed: 2

Casual: 3

Limited: 4

Multiplayer 3

 

Later

and Happy Easter.
