Tax on legs. Only gets one, but gets ANY
one. Want my opinion? Of course you do
- or else you wouldn't be reading it. This
guy....gonna die. He's gonna die fast.
Bolt, shock, terror, fanatic, wrath, plow,
etc.. If you're ahead on land, especially in
t1, and this guy shows up, you're gonna kill him -
fast. If it lives, it's great. In t2,
not so good - very little to get.
It's actually okay
in limited because it can garner some excellent
card advantage as well as improve the quality of
This guy looks like he could be could but is more
situational critter. He's a 1/1 for 1 in
a fair ability if you play second. He'll
your deck so that you draw more critters, which is
pretty good. In constructed he's about the
you can get non-basics with him, which might help
him better, but probably not much. Pretty
One thing that would make him good is if they
back Empyrial Armor for White Weenie. Than I
most likely use this guy.
Today, we start off
with an old ability. It first was found on Land
Tax. Now, it is on a creature, and you can only
get 1 land each time you use the ability.
Noicably missing, though, is one word:
"basic." This allows you to get your
Gaea's Cradle, your Tolarian Academy, or any
other broken non-basic land.
However, in the new
type 2, and, for the most part, the New
Extended, there are no real broken lands that
you would want to get with this thing. So, for
the most part, you are limited to getting a
splash color. The problem is, unless white's
quality of cards in Onslaught is great, this
won't see much play, as white isn't playable
right now in type 2, nor is it played much
So that limites our
use of this to type 1. Is it worth the card slot
to be able to get your Library of Alexandria,
your Tolarian Academy, or any other land you may
want? Time will tell, but I have the feeling
that it could be a distinct possibility.
In limited, this
could serve as a color smoother, and it is a
warm body, but I don't see it being that good.
November Type 2: 2
(Unless there are some great white cards, then,
maybe a 3)
2.5 (Color smoothing is going to be a bit more
important here. Again, add 1 if we get great
white cards in Onslaught.)
|An interesting mechanic for white to
have in my opinion. This card
could find its uses in White Weenie should it make
Tier 1 in Type II,
but I don't think this card is all that worth
playing. Perhaps in a 2
or 3 colored deck based around white, but not many
places for it.
Otherwise, this guy isn't much more than a
1/1 for W. A 2 in
Constructed. I just don't see all that much
special about this thing
for the future.
In limited, 1cc 1/1's are never high picks.
The ususally fall to the
8th to 13th bracket in draft, and only make
a draft and sealed decks if
in this guys case you are having land problems or
if you wish to try and
help the mana curve of your deck. It's hard
to put any 1/1 with a
middle weight ability on a scale of 1 to 5, but if
I absolutely must,
I'd probably say 2.4 give or take. Stuff
like Cabal Trainee, Diligent
Farmhand or Hapless Researcher would probably be
more, Krosan Wayfarer
and Dedicated Martyr would be lower. This
guys around the middle.
