Constructed (seems to be a theme thus far).
3 power flier that
swings for 3 on turn 4. A little more butt -
survives a crown, but dies to most everything
else. I don't like that once it's in the
air, it's there for good. Super-high flier,
a.k.a. the new Shadow. About as good as
Dreamer, in my opinion for blue fliers.
Ascending Aven -
You won't see him in serious constructed. In
limited, he morphs for a better cost than some
other flyers, but he can't block ground pounders.
Though, he does have morph and flying, and if
you're going blue, I'd take him mid to late in
draft, and I'd play him in sealed for his evasion
A 3/2 super high flier for 4. Unfortunately,
like yesterday, outside of maybe one block deck,
this thing is useless. This even has double blue
in the casting cost, so it's harder to cast.
In limited, there's really nothing you can do
with this. If you can get blue paired with some
removal, maybe you can win with fliers like
this. Generally, I would pass though.
Constructed - 2
Limited - 2
Another excellent limited clock for blue, though
not as versatile and a tad
more expensive than the seaswift. He may see
constructed play in a
creature heavy blue deck that already has it's
contingent of swifts.
Ascending Aven is
another solid card for Blue. As a Soldier and Bird
it has some advantages in that department but
mostly a decent costed aggressive flyer is nice
and morphing to kill a flyer isnt too bad either.
Constructed A decent
card that is priced right, nothing special under
the hood though 2.85
Limited The Morph
cost helps to get around double Blue a solid
PEZ Maybe a bit
better than the Mistforms from early in the week
but still not what Blue is looking for 2.50
Yay!! Another damn
flyer who won't see much play in Constructed, or
any for that matter. In Limited he's pretty decent
and if you pull enough flyers you can scare your
opponent and race him but as soon as mass removal
hits you = screwed.
Must rate better
Another 3 power flier for four but with the added
bonus of a double blue in the casting cost and the
nice little "Can only block creatures with
flying." to make up for the huge two toughness
this guy is sporting. On the plus sides it does
morph and the creature types might allow this guy
to make his way into a Keeper of the Nine Gales
Limited: 3/2 flying morph creature with good
Of all the fliers so far this week, this one is
the best. I do like the fact that it morphs and
can surprise people.
However, the best part of this card are it's
creature types. It's both a bird and a soldier
and that comes into play more often than you would
This guy is a great pick in limited, but so far
has proven nothing in constructed.

The original gangster for big blue flyers a
set back when the draft was on-on-on. Its still
one of the best common blue flyers in limited
currently. I think the Mistform Dreamer is the
best blue flyer for ons limited. Although this
guys the best bigger cousin for ons. A solid pick,
just don't forget- it can't block non-flyers,
therefore its must do what its best at- swing and
race the opponent. Morphing may kill some of your
tempo if your not careful.
And of course, this is not a constructed card!
