One word:


Constructed : 1.1
Limited: 1.0
Overall Rating : Picture Sylvester the cat and that big kangaroo mouse thing.


The better of the glittering creatures in my opinion, you could do much worse than these guys in your draft deck. I still don't like them. 

A 2 in both formats.


A Grey Ogre with a reasonable ability, but one that is fairly easy to overcome. I wouldn't pick this guy high, but I would still play him.

Ah, so much better than a Pearled Unicorn, and yet so far away from ever being placed in a deck. 2


This card is a playable but extremely mediocre card. To start with he is a basic gray ogre 2/2 for 3. Then for 3 mana you can prevent damage to him. Let see...how many things would you rather do for 3 mana than protect a 2/2. I can only think of 2-3 thousand, especially in a block that had Rebels. In Limited the story is exactly the same if not worse.
Constructed-2 (All Gray Ogres get a 2 rule is invoked)
Limited-2 (Same rule as above) 


Limited:***^(3 1/2 Stars)
Constructed:**^(2 1/2 Stars)

I always like taking Grey Ogres in draft. I like Grey Ogres even better when they have decent abilities that can slow down your opponent. Add to that a decent color to draft behind that (white did have Rebels in Masque Block) and I'm pretty much sold. I don't like the Lion as much in constructed since there are better creatures for cheaper mana that White Weenie can run, and I wasn't too excited about that "God" deck people used this guy in.
