5 is the highest rating.

Gordon Kane Amber Piercer - a card with so much potential.

However, it isn't quite the right time to see it in
"Prime Time" decks. The makings of a combo are there
- Darkness creatures that sacrifice a creature when
they come into play. Amber Piercer (and Dark
Reversal) are ways to get that creature back in your
hand -- so it can enter the battle zone again. All
this kind of deck lacks is a smaller, cheaper version
of Gigargon - that can return one creature from the
graveyard to your hand.

In a deck that recalls all the dead creatures from the graveyard - Amber Piercer might not be the game winner, but it will be necessary to keep the fresh supply of Darkness minions ready to enter the field of battle to wreak maximum carnage. All that is lacking for Amber Piercer to become an MVP is a few additional cards with the grave digging ability. In a Draft environment, committing to the sacrifice creatures in the early packs in hopes of drafting an Amber Piercer out of a Crushinator pack is only done by the very brave of very stupid. If it is there, makes it into your deck, and then makes it into the battlezone, it could be supplying you with an endless stream of small creatures.

Constructed 4/5 (strictly on potential)
Limited 2/5
Stegyman Amber Piercer

Hmm.. what to say..

Amber Piercer: Darkness Creature, 4-Mana, 2000 Attack. Pretty bad, huh? Whenever it attacks, you may return a creature from your graveyard to your hand. That's interesting.

Is this card good? I'm not too sure. I've seen a lot of decklists with Darkness in them and I have yet to see an Amber Piercer in them. Personally I don't like this card because you can just play a Dark Reversal for two less Mana. So, Dark Reversal > Amber Piercer IMO.

Pros: get creatures from graveyard, chump creature

Cons: 4-Mana for 2000 Attack, only one creature at a time

I dunno about this card. It's pretty much a one-shot deal if your opponent doesn't destroy it right away. In Limited this card is okay as it can nab an important creature that was just destroyed.

Tournament: 2/5

Limited: 2.5/5
