Worldheart Phoenix

2/2 flier for 3R? Meh. 4/4 flier from your graveyard for WUBRG? Also meh. You can play it and replay it, so that's less meh, but if I'm five-color, I'd rather have something big and scary like Maelstrom Archangel, or Horde of Notions. Im Limited it's a must-have in 5-color, and a reason to go 5-color, but otherwise once you're in all five, there's better options for you.

Constructed- 2.5
Casual- 3
Limited- 4.75

Worldheart Phoenix

It's been way too long since we had a fun new phoenix card, much less one as fun to look at as Worldheart Phoenix. You don't get quite as much of an immediate impact out of it as with some of the other "one mana of each color" cards in Conflux, or indeed as the older ones outside of Conflux. But then again, control decks relying on the power of the firebird have appeared in such unexpected places as Tempest block constructed and Ninth Edition Standard, so never underestimate a creature that can't die.

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

Worldheart Phoenix

 

Constructed: A new addition to 5-color control, maybe?

 

Casual: In a domain deck it can come back from the graveyard over and over again as a 4/4. Interesting.

 

Limited: A 2/2 flyer for 4 mana is okay. If you are really crazy and are going all 5 colors this would be a real great card that will not go away normally.

 

Overall a interesting card with a new take on unearth.

 

Constructed: 2

Casual: 3

Limited: 3

Worldheart Phoenix - Friday


I don't like this card much at all. It feels like WotC R&D guys were trying too hard to work in the Domain mechanic here. It's pretty nice if you can get the mana to operate it, but only a couple of decks will ever be able to play it. This isn't a card you're going to fear too much unless it's waaaaaay late in the game, I'd imagine. Casual players are likely to turn away from it, because it's inferior to most other phoenixes (phoeni? phoenixen? phoenix?) in the game.

In limited, it's not a bad play, because it's a flier, but it shouldn't be one of the first cards you'r elooking to squeeze in.

Constructed: 2
Casual: 2
Limited: 2.5

Friday - Worldheart Phoenix

Nice in any domain limited deck as you can often recurr it for a 4/4 flier. It's always those darn 4/4 fliers winning the games these days, tower gargoyle im lookin at you. While it seems great in domain it's not that great elsewhere as it's only ability is where it shines and that costs one of each. I think there's more fun cards at casual then this guy. Constructed will pass on him for sure.

Constructed-2
Casual-3
Limited-4 in domain

Worldheart Phoenix

What...the hell?

A 2/2 flier for 4cc? Right off the bat, that's terrible.

Its second effect...5cc 4/4 flier? Am I reading this card right?

This seems like one of the worst rares in this set. I don't recommend playing this card unless there's some odd use you will get out of it that I can't think of right now.

Constructed: 1/5
Sealed: 1/5
