Playable in limited obviously, but totally overcosted and not worth a dime in constructed. A little kid card at best. 3.5 in Limited, 1 in constructed.

Judge Bill

A nice fat creature, but more often than not, I've seen him play more defense with his ability than offense. In constructed, once green hits this point, they've typically got the game won. So I wouldn't recommend this.
In limited, however, he's all business. Changes the landscape of the board dramatically. Again, I've seen his ability used more for defense than offense, but it's still not bad, not by a long shot.
Constructed: 2
Limited: 4.5


Been a while since we've had a fun green card to review.  This card is great fun.  his high casting cost is the only thing that hamstrings him from making it into a lot of constructed decks.  If you can find a way to get him out quickly, I'm sure he is almighty power.

On the flip side though, he is a great bomb to open in limited.  I almost got thrashed by this guy on Saturday.  I also found myself wishing I had one in my deck Saturday! :)

Constructed: 2.8
Limited: 4.1


This guy is an odd fish. Like, you want him to use his ability... but he's a 5/5, so you want him in combat mucking things up! So many options... I guess he's good because he makes all your creatures better, and hurst your opponent's ability to deal with them. Not constructed playable, but pretty cool in Limited.

Limited: 3.5

Constructed: 1


This legend is somewhat overcosted at 5GG so it is in the highly suspect 7 mana category and it's value in constructed is minimal due to the high cost. Limited is a different story. I have seen many limited games in the current block where once this guy was out it was game over. The difference seems to be the fact that in the current block green has so many weapons that by the time Thriss hits the board either the opponent's life total is low enough or he has used most of the type of removal needed for Thriss on other threats. This last weekend in team sealed one of my teammates used Thriss in the main deck of a green/white build and lost only 1 game when Thriss hit the board and helped us go 5-0-1 to win a GP trial.
