Igneous Pouncer

Much like Traumatic Visions from Conflux, this epitomizes flexibility. Early game, you cycle it for a basic land. Once you've got a good amount of those, this can come down and do a decent Lava Axe/Ball Lightning impression. Watch for this card in Limited, especially if you think you'll want to splash one of its colors, or both.

Constructed- 2.5
Casual- 2.75
Multiplayer- 2.5
Limited- 3.5

Igneous Pouncer

Much like Pale Recluse last week, an effectively "modal" creature which is a late heavy hitter and an early color fixer is bound to be a winner. As a couple of people in various discussions have pointed out, this cycle is even better than the Fiery Fall cycle because they can find your first basic land of the relevant type if you don't already have one.

Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 4/5
Multiplayer: 3/5

Ignaeous Pouncer

As I mentioned last week, I wanted to see something we could reanimate with the cycle ability. This is not bad. Turn 2 cycle it. By turn 4 makeshift manniquin it. For 6, it will rarely see hardcaste play...too bad it does not have some form of evasion because this will likely mean it won't see any kind of play. A card made to keep limited play possible with the multicolored block.

Igneous Pouncer

 

Constructed: 5/1 Haste for 6 mana is to expensive. The specific land cycling is ok, but I would prefer to get any basic land.

 

Casual: He is big, should big a hit for awhile.

 

Multiplayer: Ehhhh.

 

Limited: This is a great card for any limited format. With a all Alara Reborn draft this guy would be great to get extra copies of. Early game get your lands out and mid to late game he can apply alot of pressure. Unless there are some good pingers or first-stikers he will do just fine.

 

Overall just another common, but should do will in Limited.

 

Constructed: 2

Casual: 3

Multiplayer:2

Limited: 4
