A 2/2 for 3.  No one would ever block this with more than one creature, so
rampage is worthless.  Would I draft it?  If I was really hurting for
creatures or had a nice Lure to put on it.  1.5 in Limited, 1 in


This art is pleasant and quaint compared to stasis. In fact, so non
memorable that I don't remember it. I do remember that this card is
unplayable though.

Art Rating: Unmemorable

Ok... let me tell you something here.  There are three big things that cause rules problems:

1. Banding

2. Phasing

3. Rampage

This card has #3.

Construed: 1.1 (only because it is a creature)
Limited: 1.2 (only because it is a creature)


Cool Art, downright unmentionable card.  I picked it because it's art ruled, not because it's any good.  


Constructed - 1
Limited - 2
Current Price - $.75

A Grizzly Bear with Rampage. Blah, no thanks in constructed. Especially since it's an artifact ... there's that many more ways to kill it.
Not much better in limited either. It is a body though.
Constructed: 1.5
Limited: 2.2


Well they're not quite as bad as the name might suggest, but they aren't all that great either.  It's just too small for its cost.

Soon after I first started playing, Mirage came out.
This was one of my favorite cards of the time strictly
due to the artwork.  Unfortunately for me, the card is
very.....  well, how do I say it?  Bad.  Oh well, the
fun was still there.

Constructed: 2
Limited: 2.5 (you can play it no matter your color combination)


This one is easy funny art, actually pretty bad for an artifact Grey Ogre. All Grey Ogres get a 2 unless they have a really good ability in which case they are not Grey Ogres.
Constructed 2
Limited 2



Great little joke in the flavour text. 2/2 for 3 is not too bad for an
artifact creature, and the rampage ability is better than nothing, even
though it won't be activated too often. It's a nice little card that just
doesn't stand out.

You might even play them in a Black constructed deck, considering how many
problems Black has with getting powerful creatures. As for limited, go ahead
and take them, as they'll work in any colour deck.

Constructed - 3
Limited - 4
