Card of the Day Reviews 


Whether or not this card is good totally is dependant on the viability of Zombie decks.  Personally, I think people will try them for sure, but not sure how good they will be.  I think its a solid play in a Zombie deck, but who knows if that's any good.  My inclination is to say no, but I've been wrong before.

In limited, things that bring cards back is good.  I'd play it if I had a few Zombies in the deck.

Constructed: 2.5
Limited: 3.5
Current Price:


Hmm... this would have been nice in my sealed deck (see my Tournament Report  from Sunday). I don't see it being played in serious Constructed formats, though. But in limited, I can see this being used if someone is running a good amount of Zombies.

Constructed: 2
Limited: 3.5

Is this guy's abitiy good? No, not in anything but a theme deck. But that's what this block is all about, isn't it? Still, I don't see a viable deck for this to go into. If it were a zombie itself, you might have quite a few tricks recurring these. But since it's not, bleh.
In limited, you have so few of a given creature type typically that this isn't worth it.
Constructed: 1.5
Limited: 2

Infernal Caretaker
This guy is ok,  and not horribly overcosted,  but I've used him before and
he's not as amazing as he seems,  even in a zombie-heavy deck.  Maybe he'll
see some combo-y use in constructed,  otherwise he's just a mid-pick limited
constructed - 2.8
limited - 3.2


Infernal Caretaker

I took a small break! I'm back! Anyway, I really don't like legions at all. This guy looks ok. Zombie deck?

I don't know any tier 1 zombie decks... Maybe in OnBC...but who'd actually play that? Well, I guess I don't like the concept. He's nice with zombies.

Limited: you get zombies, get them back he's ok...



Infernal Caretaker is an expensive card for a minimal ability with small potential for abuse as far as I can see. Without any real punch or powerful ability it is generally a weak pick.


Constructed Really too expensive for most decks and too underpowered 1.50


Limited Recursion can be impressive here but still not a breakout card by any means 1.75


PEZ Very expensive for this format and generally weak 1.50



Tuesday - Infernal Caretaker

This guy is playable, but that's about it.  I think that even in a Zombie deck he doesn't fill any spots that need to be filled.  If anything, he actually hurts you for playing Soulless One.

In limited, I would consider playing him.  It would just depend on what else I had drafted.

Constructed - 2
Limited - 2.5
