Quite a nice little dwarf for limited play, basically worthless in
constructed.  I have no idea what this card even looks like as I was not
playing back then.  Today it would be a fairly decent card to take in draft.
  3 in Limited, 1 in constructed.


Dwarven Thaumaturgist has horrible art. HORRIBLE. Like, I can't look at that
card because the art is so bad. That's a problem, because the card is pretty
playable in Limited. Maybe if i had a marker with me.

Art Rating: Obnoxious.
Limited: 3
Constructed: 1


Why does the art on this card suck so bad ? :(

This card does what several cards in Magic apparently have come to do.  It's only good for decks based around "creature tricks."

In limited...well, I'd rip this card to shreds if I got it passed to me as my last pick :(

Constructed: 1.0
Limited: 1.0


When I first came up with the idea for "Goofy Artwork Week", this was probably one of the first cards that came to mind.  Man...weird.

Anyway, think of all the potential in constructed! I mean, really.  Against Sligh, they drop Ball Lightning and serve.  You just flip it, and now they're beating you down with a 1/6 Trample....BEATING!  Wait a minute - that guy got shocked in the head.

In limited, where shocks are in more short supply, this guy does some weird, fun things, like kill walls, and can play some neato post-combat tricks against defensive creatures, and turn more aggressive ones passive.  I would definitely pick this guy high simply because your opponent will jump through their butt to kill it.

Constructed - 1
Limited - 3.5

Judge Bill
Talk about goofy art. This card art might be considered good ... if it was drawn by a 4 year old.
Its effect is decent enough to provide a finisher for a rogue extended deck ... but being a creature itself really hurts here.
And limited ... well, it's a warm body, I'll give it that much.
Constructed: 2
Limited: 1.4



Dwarven Thaumaturgist is very strictly average. It allows you to pull off
some nice combat tricks, but your opponent will be able to plan for them
when they see this guy sitting on the board.

There are some creatures that become a lot better with Dwarven
Thaumatugist's help, so he's not altogether dreadful in constructed. In
limited play, however, you can't predict who else you're going to draw, so
he becomes just another 1/2 body.

Constructed - 2.5
Limited - 1.5
