Ignore constructed.

We have a 2 power flier for 3 that can flop critter types.  Not as good as seaswift, but still good - makes the cut in blue.  Everything it can do, this can do too - just does not hit as hard.

Constructed: 1.5
Limited: 3
Current Price:


Mistform Dreamer - Again, too vanilla for constructed play. In limited, it's solid. Not a first pick, but a decent midpick. Dreamer is a well costed creature that will probably deal some early damage for you in this flyer-light environment, until your opponent just can't stand its peskiness and will have to burn it out or come up with an answer to flying. Its power of 2 is enough to hold off or take out a variety of your opponent's probably higher costed flyers, so Mistform Dreamer is economical in that respect. Its Illusion ability is always an added bonus in this heavy tribal environment.

Speaking of, I think some people have a hard time seeing the good in a Mistform Illusions and their ability to change creature type. Think of it this way:

Gaining life with Wellwisher? **Poof** He's an Elf.

Need an extra damage with Sparksmith? **Poof** He's a Goblin

Your opponent killing off one of YOUR creatures with Sparksmith? **Poof** He's a Goblin and your opponent takes an extra point of damage.  And so on...

Get the picture? ;)

Constructed: 1.5
Limited: 3.5

Mistform Dreamer
Another flying Mistform, this time a 2/1 fdor 3. Unfortunately, it's exactly the same as yesterday. Maybe in slivers, but otherwise, not in constructed.
Again, all about Lavamancer's Skill in limited. At least you may be able to take a risk late in pack one if you are U/R and don't yet have the Skill.
Constructed: 2
Limited: 3.5 if you have Lavamancer's Skill, 1.25 if you don't.

Compared to the Seaswift,  you would have to have the tightest mana on earth
to play this guy in constructed over your other options.  In limited he's
still a solid pick (most fliers are),  though not "strong" really.
constructed 2.8
limited 3.1


Mistform Dreamer is a quick drop for an extra bit of beats. Nothing stellar here but not too shabby. The low cost is kind of nice.


Constructed – Okay all around but nothing too special since type change doesn’t seem to be that huge – 2.40


Limited – Another nice quick drop with evasion, fairly solid – 3.00


PEZ – Again, this is a card slot not looking to be filled – 2.25

Here's a 2/1 flyer with an extra ability for three in world full of 2/2 for 3. Great in Limited but unless there's a Blue bomb rush deck in type 2 this poor guy won't see much play. = (

Why are the mistforms so hard to review? >,<

Constructed 2

Limited 3.2

Scott Sager Mistform Dreamer

A 2/1 flier for 2U with the ever so non-important Mistform ability. Well, I've seen a lot worse.

Limited: A 2/1 flier for 3cc is very playable in the format of forty. The Mistform ability is actually useful in the new tribal environment that Onslaught has brought upon us.

Constructed: 2.5



Mistform Dreamer

This card is light years better than yesterday's card.  It's cheaper and will most like be active sooner. 

Truth be told, this one is actually playable in limited.  It's not stellar, but definitely playable.  In constructed it has a few uses.  But almost every time I think about playing the Mistform Seaswift, I think of this card.  It's better, not by a whole lot, but it is better.

Check out  We've got some good standard deck talk to help prepare you for Regionals.  The best part is that none of it thus far includes talks of mistform creatures.

Constructed: 1.8
Limited: 1.9

Mistform Dreamer
     Probably the cheapest and best blue flyer in onslaught along with ascending aven for limited play. Plus it has tricks and protection from cruel revival. A solid pick for blue.

Surgeon General Warning: Not meant for consturcted play.

Consturcted: 1
Limited: 3.75
