Dawn Elemental

Constructed: 4.5
Limited: 3.75
Current Price:


Mono White is making a comeback, and Dawn Elemental is taking her place in the control version of it though it doesn't qualify well in weenie. Wizards seems to be doing a decent job of balancing the colors a little better. Mono white just wasn't seen in serious constructed up to this point. Dawn Elemental, Exalted Angel, along with a few important Common and Uncommons from block, seem to have made white a finally worthwhile color to look at.  And when 8th Edition is released at the end of this week, who knows.

In limited, it's a great card, but it's casting cost of WWWW makes it very difficult to get into play. If I were going heavy white, I'd still try it, though.

Constructed: 4.5
Limited: 3.5

Judge Bill

A hot player in the block MWC (Mono-White Control) deck. This helps to keep the aggressive decks at bay, and can also swing unimpeded by a Carbonize. It does cost WWWW though, so you have to be running mono-white to take advantage of this. If you can though, and you're playing creatures, I highly recommend you use this.

In limited, it's a little tough to cast, due to the colored mana requirement, but in a deck with white as its primary color, be sure to play it.

Constructed: 4.5

Limited: 4

Dawn Elemental

       Good in limited and constructed. In limited you have to be going very heavy white to play this. In constructed, or should I say block,(OnBC) its a big part of mono-white control. A good card, but I doubt it will matter much after this block rotates.

Constructed: 3
Limited: 3.5


What a cool card. I think the picture is good and the card has a fair cost.
The WWWWcc makes it VERY tough in a multi colored deck. Also, I wouldn't say
the elemental belongs in White Weenie decks if that's what you're thinking.
WW tries to get the opponent to 0 live as soon as possible, and Dawn
Elemental is more of a defensive card, which I don't think fits into White
Weenie. Still, that doesn't mean don't use it, it's a great card, have fun
with it.
