Court Homunculus

In an Esper-heavy deck, this will almost always be a 2/2 for W by the time you can attack with it. The problem is that Esper isn't an aggressive beatdown deck usually, so your 2/2 will have very little backing it up. Especially if you draw this late game.

Court Homunculus

Affinity anyone? Well, he might be a little slow (and a little too colored) for competitive Extended. Chromatic Star, Tidehollow Sculler, and Esperzoa? Sounds like a game to me.

Court Homunculus

I just love the name homunculus. Rolls right off the toungue. In standard, there a few esper aggro decks that this guy may go into. A nice first round drop that can hit for two with a follow up artifact. Not tons to say on this card. Simply, not bad...

Court Homunculas

 

Constructed: A white winnie that is also a Artifact. They only get a little bigger with another Artifact out. Not seeing anything exciting happening.

 

Casual: The little Homunculas to could.

 

Limited: Just another cheap creature to help with the curve. Not a top pick. But if you need alot of little duds these guys are alright. If I open a Mater of Etherium than I would grab as many as these as possible. Watch my army of stuff take you down!

 

Overall a cheap common for white.

 

Constructed: 2

Casual: 2

Limited: 2

 

Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Court Hommonculs - Tuesday

Having efficient 2/2's for one mana has always been a good thing in the game of Magic. But this card takes a little bit of work to reach its 2 attack value. Admittedly, you just have to control another artifact, which is terribly difficult. I think it simply suffers from an inferiority complex. There are just better creatures to play. And the deck that is most likely to take advantage of it (Affinity/Ravager) simply has too many quality options that need to be considered before this guy.

Constructed: 2
Casual: 1.5
Limited: 2
Multiplayer: 1.5
