Circle of Life
Ability
Cost: 8
Restriction: Druid

Ongoing: When an ally is destroyed, its controller may search his deck for an ally card with the same name and put it into play exhausted.

Today's card has some potential, it acquires a deck that uses any allies you run in sets of four, to keep replenishing your field.

I see this card being played in a deck once or twice, but no more, the costs are to high for that.

Sealed: 3/5

Ok now this card is a lot of fun but wow how I wish it could be used by other classes because I think it’s a rough card to play in a druid deck.

 

Let’s look at the card as a whole. It’s a solid card but you’re playing for the late game and I’m not going to advise anyone to be stacking 4 of this in their deck because you know you’re going to be playing that game 3 in a round and you’re going to draw all 4 off a mulligan and it’s really going to suck. Basically every time a guy dies you get to go take another one and put it into play. What’s cool about this is guys like Parvink who draw you cards and other allies who do damage or provide another helpful aspect. The down side to this card is your opponent can use it as well but if you’re smart you can use this to your advantage. In fact if your really smart this could be a very abusive strategy you will see a couple sets down the road when people have forgotten about this card.

 

This is a deck card; you build a deck around it and its very do able and can be a lot of fun. The things this deck is very susceptible to are ability removal and a good solid rush. Now right now these are two things most decks are playing but with time the format will open up and circle of life decks could be an option.

 

Sealed (1): planning on having multiples of an ally is not a good idea and paying 8 for something that might work is a gamble at best.

Constructed (3): I’m unable to see a circle deck winning a tournament but I can in the future.

Casual (5): Circle of life is awesome in casual play; I’m probably going to have a circle deck in my deck box from now on actually.

Raid (3): I can see someone playing this in raid just because Onyxia has no way to take advantage of it and all your team mates could use it to their advantage. It will be destroyed though, the second Onyxia sees it being used its as good as gone and so is your 8 resource you used for it.

This card is pretty amazing. If you're the type of player(which you should be) that plays multiples of your cards, then this card is amazing for you. With this card, whenever an ally is killed in battle...oh look...theres another one. Play a chasing a-me 01 quest and get the dstroyed ally right back. Now, you all of a sudden have 2 of that ally all because he got killed. Thats pretty sweet. Definitely play this in your druid deck.
 
Sealed: 4/5
 
Constructed: 5/5
 
Casual: 4/5
 
Raid: 5/5(Definitely handy vs. Onyxia)

Circle of Life

Being one of the cards with the highest costs in the current set, Circle of Life offers good deck thinning for those who play multiple copies of one card.

This card is for druids only, and when an ally is destroyed, you can search a new one from your deck and throw it into play exhausted. Which has the same name of course. As said earlier, this speeds up your deck, and at the same time it gives you field presence. Although, this counts for your opponent as well. The strength of this card will come down to how well both of you have constructed your decks. A player running four of each ally will have very high advantage over the player who runs one or two of each.

In sealed, this card looses power, since all decks will have random ally-lineups. In constructed or Casual, this card can be powerful if correctly played. Oh, and it is too expensive to play against the fat dragon. You waste 8 resources while she destroys it with an instant for 1 or 2.

Constructed: 4/5
Sealed: 2/5
Casual: 3/5
Raid: 1/5
