Apex Hawks

These Hawks, like all the other +1/+1 multikicker creatures, may seem a bit inefficient at most of their different sizes, but the key here isn't maximization, it's customization. Apex Hawks is a decent play for the mana, no matter how much mana you put into it. It's a solid three-drop, and a decent five-drop in limited, and at seven it's as big as a Broodmate. And if the game goes really long, you can make it the biggest thing in the sky.

Casual-  2

Apex Hawks
 
No matter what you pay for it, Apex Hawks delivers. Multikicker doesn't always work in constructed, especially since white decks decided they could go as low as 16 lands, but no price is too expensive to attack someone with really, really angry birds.
 
Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 2/5
Limited: 4/5
Multiplayer: 2/5

Today's card of the day is Apex Hawks which is a three mana 2/2 with Flying and the option of using Multikicker to add +1/+1 counters.  This is a pretty average card in constructed and not one that is likely to ever see play outside of a bird deck.  Five mana for a 3/3 just isn't worth it for White when there are so many angels to choose from at the exact same mana cost.
 
In Limited this is noticeably better as Flying is a powerful ability and it is not just a throwaway blocker if drawn later in the game.  While not a first pick in Booster it is a great support card at the common level for a White or Blue/White deck with a focus on Flying and a solid choice for any White build.  For Sealed there is really no reason not to play this as early or late it is easily worth a slot.
 
Constructed: 2.0
Casual: 2.0
Limited: 3.5
Multiplayer: 2.0
