Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
is an interesting card for Constructed.
Weenie White would certainly benefit from a 3/3
flier swinging on turn 3. I think you're
gonna find this to be a very important cards in
block constructed Weenie White, but not much else.
The question will be if it had the bird support to
make it good.
limited, I love it. There generally are the
birds, and anytime you can get a 3/3 flier into
play, it can be brutal - especially if it can
serve on turn 3. If you have the Aven
support, go for it!
3.5 (Block) 2.0 (Other)
Uh, I just can't see this guy in constructed,
though if someone comes up with a great bird
build, he would probably fit right in. In
limited, he's decent if you get a good Blue/White
flier build, or one with lots of Mistforms. In
that case, the guy is a good deal as he becomes a
3/3 flyer for 1W.

ability. Unfortunately it's not a bird itself,
so the one deck that may have played him won't.
(Change "a Bird" to "another Bird" if you make
this a bird.)
In limited, if you
have enough birds, it's a beefy 3/3 flier. If
not, he's a 1/1 for 2, which, unfortunately , is
a little below average for this block.
He's the right cost, and a couple of these guys
will win you a limited game
very quickly if they've got a birdie to sit on.
He may make the cut in a
bird-heavy constructed deck, half price phantom
monsters can't be bad in
white weenie... if you've got the right build.
limited - 3.3
constructed - 3
Cloudreach Cavalry –
Well a vanilla 1/1 for 2 is bad, on the other hand
a 3/3 Flyer for 2 is really good. This card would
be more playable if it was itself an Aven
Bird/Soldier and its text said “another bird” but
we can’t have everything. Mediocre overall with
some possibilities. At least he comes out just
when your birds get going so the right deck should
always get his benefits.
Constructed – The best
place to play him as you can make sure there are
enough birds to make him playable – 2.50
Limited – Well, there
are a lot of Birds and Aven’s out there so this
card may be doable – 2.25
PEZ – There are some
Bird decks out there now and a lot of decent Birds
even just in White. As an early common drop this
may be playable for specific builds – 2.55
hmmm... a 1/1 for two that turns into a 3/3 flyer
if you have any birds in
play. This guy makes me think white winie, but I
would take a 2/2 for his
cost any day of the weak just because I like
consitancy. I don't know if I
would even run in in Limited because I can't see
him being that great unless
you're running blue/white.
Turn one: Plains,
Suntail Hawk, Go! Turn two: land, Cloudreach
Cavalry. ;) hehe, 3/3 for 2cc. It's about time
we saw a good card again. The only way to make
this card better was if it always had flying, but
WoTC probably won't print something that efficient
amazing in a U/W deck. Lets see...Evasion
(usually) and it eats morph creatures all for the
low low casting cost of two....Yes please.
I think this card has some options for
constructed. It hasn't proven itself yet. Now
may not be the time. However, this card will be
in the standard environment for a long while.
As for limited, this card is pretty neat if you
draft into the right setup. It's definitely worth
the nod over many other white cards.
