Bully is a great addition to the 'punisher'
mechanic. I think that due to the lack of red's
playable creature cards in these sets, this will
most likely see more play than it should. It has
no place in constructed. 1 in Constructed, 3 in
An interesting card.
Sligh seems to have become quite viable lately.
However, in constructed, I would much rather
play Minotaur Explorer, which gives you a
3/3 for one less mana and only one discard over
this. However, I'm sure I'll be proven wrong.
After all, I didn't become a judge because I was
good at this game. :)
In limited, however,
the discard ability becomes more potent. Your
opponent can either give you a 4/4, or he can
take 4 and still be dealing with a 2/2. Play it
if you get it (and are going red) here.
School's out at
last ^_^ V
Just thought I'd throw that
in because I feel like a 2 ton wieght's been
lifted off of me. 1 more year left before I
I like Barbarian Bully. I've
been put on the spot by this guy in draft a few
times, and he is a really good creature. The only
reason an opponent would take damage from him
would be to try and kill him. Otherwise, he is a
beatstick, because why would someone take 4
damage, then take another 2 from the Bully when
they could just take 4 from the Bully and be done
In limited, a middle pick.
Not a bad creature, but not usually a first pick.
He can certainly be one, but it will be rare that
you will be put in a situation where he is the
best card in the pack. A 3.5 in limited.
In constructed, I don't
know. He seems good, but none of these pain cards
with the exception of Browbeat seem like they
would really see play. I think he's worthy of it,
but whether or not he will be played is completely
different. I give him a 2, because I don't know
where to put him in Type II. He could easily be
much better than that, but I don't think he will.
This is an easy review
to start the week with.
The only way this guy gets used in constructed is
probably in a Odyssey block deck.
In limited, you can take him if you need an extra
body. So far he hasn't made it into any of
my decks when I've had better cards....which are
quite a few. He's not horrible though.
Just a matter of preference.

We've come a LONG way from Grey Ogre, that's for
I was lucky enough to get 2 of Barbarian Bully in
my Judgment prerelease deck. My opponents
can vouch for me when I say they're pretty darn
good at turning sideways and smashing for the win.
An inexpensive ground pounder that can be a 4/4 if
the opponent tries to throw anything in front of
it can really be a workhorse in limited play.
In constructed I've been touting Barbarian Bully
as the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th Wild Mongrel for R/G
madness, atleast in OBC. I'm gonna stand
behind that statement until someone proves me
wrong. Actually I'm pretty stubborn so I'll
more than likely stick to my guns even IF someone
proves me wrong. =)

seems to me to be a decent middle of the road
creature. He's a 2/2 for 2R with a pumpablity
that can be prevented if opp. loses 4 life and
you discard a card at random. For this set he is
a decent red creature and also does ok in
limited. R&D could have made him better by
letting you choose your discard but if they did
red might actually be viable again and far be it
from the blue worshippers to do that.
puts an interesting twist on the Punisher
mechanic. While he would be SO much better if you
could use his ability more than once a turn, we
get stuck with a fairly unplayable creature
He's better than a Grey
Ogre, and for that reason will be a solid card in
limited, but in no way will he be a game breaker.
