Savage Slasher

This could go in a deck that would play Court Homunculus, as an X/1 that grows as your artifact creatures die. You only need 2 dead trinkets for this to be a 3/1 for two mana, so this could turn out to be quite the glass cannon.

Constructed- 2.5
Casual- 3
Multiplayer- 2.75
Limited- 3

Salvage Slasher

Wasn't there some kind of fable, like the story of the grasshopper and the ant but different, where the moral is "be careful what you throw away?" Now we know why. Seriously, he's sort of a poor man's Arcbound Ravager, which is just what some of us needed. Esper just keeps getting better.

Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 3/5

Savage Slasher

Like yesterday's card, this is conditional advantage. However, this does not go in the aggro deck but rather as a later played creature. I can see this cheap creature in a control based esper deck. A few courier capsules and executioner capsules later and this guy could hit hard for quite a few or force a block to take out=2 0something big.

Salvage Slasher

 

Constructed: Another common that will not see much top level tournament play.

 

Casual: Some guys random deck.

 

Limited: Go with alot of artifacts and get some evasion and your a good to go. Take all off the Court Homunculus and some Capsules and see what will happen.

 

Overall another cheap common for fun decks.

This is an interesting card. The more I look at it, I become more curious as to whether Affinity/Ravager decks haven't look at playing 1-2 of this card. It's a shame he's not at least a 2/2. Then he could be played with the possibility of getting larger. He would also seem like less of a liability while you are building up your graveyard. As he stands, I guess he's a mediocre late game card.

He does have some wicked cool art though :)

I'm usually a fan of these creatures that often come into play big for cheap. This guy is not that great and while good as a creature in limited and especially if in esper, i doubt he will ever see play in constructed or even multiplayer due to his 1 toughness, ouch.

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