Tap out for Ogre, tap out for 3 power flier.  At least it can block anything.  It's solid, but anything even mildly decently cast is solid when it flies and has power 2 or more.

In constructed.....nevermind constructed.

Constructed: 1.5
Limited: 3
Current Price:


Sootfeather Flock - I just can't imagine this being played in constructed. It just costs too much. In limited, it's a black flyer with a decent power of 3 and morph, and that makes it worth playing. In this environment, you have to have 3 drops, and they usually come in the form of morphables.

Constructed: 1.5
Limited: 3.75

A bird for all those Keeper of the Nine Gales decks out there. It's in black, the removal color, so you might be able to go U/B in OnBC and have a deck. Then again, maybe not.
He's worthless outside of maybe that one deck in constructed, due to his cost.
In limited, it's a flier for black, with no drawback. That pretty much sums up the need to play it.
Constructed - 2
Limited - 4

Similar to the Seaswift,  he swings on turn four in the air,  but you won't
do anything else on that turn due to his morph cost, and he can't change
creature types.  In exchange,  you get a toughness.  A good example of blue
being the flying color I suppose,  this guy won't see much constructed play,
  but he's still good for black in limited.
constructed 2.8
limited 3.2


Sootfeather Flock is a decent sized flyer by Black’s standards – its also pricey as Black spells go.


Constructed – For this type of benefit it is an awful cost to pay – 1.75


Limited – The power of evasion and a decent strength make this guy a bit better in a format that doesn’t key in on low cost cards – 2.65


PEZ – Too expensive and not enough punch for Black decks to justify – 1.50

So if you don't morph this guy you'll be paying five for a 3/2 flyer. >,< He sucks in Constructed but gets a lil better in limited, morph him turn three and de-morph him turn 4. When you look at him this way you just spend al your mama for 2 turns in a row to get a 3/2 flyer, great isn't he?

Is it just me or do this week's cards suck? 0.o

Constructed .5

Limited 1

A 3/2 flier for 5 or morph for 3B.....CRAP!  Next.

Limited:  I've said it before, evasion in Limited is good.  Black however doesn't naturally take to the sky so it usually comes with a price.  The fact that Sootfeather Flock can morph does allow this to be a pretty consistent creature, even if it isn't always in the air.

Constructed: 1.5

Limited: 3


Wednesday - Sootfeather Flock

This review is easy.

Awful and overcosted in constructed.

Mediocre, but not great in limited:  this card is on none of the decklists on that site thus far :)

Constructed: 1
Limited: 1.5

     Since when does black have good flyers? This is oddly something black gets from legions that it needed, although I don't think black deserves it. A great pick, although expensive. Its ascending aven for alot more, and it can block. Also this things easy to splash.

Yet again- not meant for constructed.

Constructed: 1
Limited: 3.0
