Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
As a 2/1 flyer for 2W,
he's less than spectacular. But it's his
unmorphing ability that makes Wingbeat Warrior a
good card in limited. Surprise first strike can be
great removal for one of your blockers, and can
completely screw with your opponent's math. In
constructed, not a card that will see play, but a
really nice addition to a limited white deck. Not
a first pick, but a very nice mid pick in draft.
Limited: The fact
that this guy is a soldier helps with all of the
Amplify soldiers in Legions, and giving a
creature first strike really messes with combat.
I'd play him if I had him, but I wouldn't go out
of my way to get him. Probably 5th-8th pick.
This guy is twice as good as he looks (I think
I've said that before), and
he looks pretty good to start with. Most of the
time he ends up having
similar game impact to a skinthinner, sometimes
better if they were double
blocking your fatty, he's cheaper to do it, he
flies after he's done, and
he's a bird and a soldier (which are the things
that -might- let him see
constructed play, but don't hold your breath).
Wingbeat Warrior has
some good combat tricks and evasion with power
greater than 1. Not great but not bad either.
Constructed – Decent
but stronger picks readily available - 2.35
Limited – Much better
here as combat tricks and evasion are at a premium
PEZ – Okay but again
nothing great – 2.25
In constructed its nothing.
In limited its the white version of
mistform dreamer. The morph doesn't always happen,
but when it does it can be like a kill spell. Late
game if you save its ability, when the opponent
tried to kill your huge beast//good creature in a
big block you can throw this at him and get free
kills. One of whites best commons from Legions.
In constructed, it is more or less a pointless
card. Like most of the Morph
Ability creatures, this guy is slow, small, with
an ability that isn't
entirely a game breaker for constructed. Not to
mention, when it comes to
flyer,s there's better for constructed. Suntail
Hawk, Gustcloak Harrier,
Battle Screech, and even Gustcloak Skirmisher are
better and will see play
In limited, it can and will break people off.
This card gives large
creatures that don't have first strike to them,
and makes them really
hazardous for you, or for your opponent. The fact
that it does so at
instant speed, and is a morph creature keeps your
opponent on his or her
toes with the element of surprise.
Constructed - 1.5/5.0 (Small, Weak, Slow, and not
going to change the game
Limited - 4.1/5.0 (Allows you to shift the tide of
a game by giving
creatures that shouldn't have first strike the
ability, and keeping your
creature around while its blockers that should
have killed it die.)
