Glittering Lynx

Constructed: 3
Limited: 3
Current Price:


Glittering Lynx makes an improvement on a 1/1 for 1 vanilla creature by adding a decent ability. Lynx forces your opponent to keep 2 mana open if they want to deal with it. It's not an amazing ability, but it can be annoying to your opponent, kind of like a Festering Goblin nowadays.

In limited, it's decent, though a later pick. Mostly filler if you need the color.

Constructed: 3
Limited: 3

Judge Bill

A convenient 1/1 for 1. It beats down early, and makes your opponent pay 2 mana to kill it via damage. A decent card for white weenie these days, but unfortunately, in its day and in any format that it is currently legal in, there are much better cards available.
In limited, it's not bad. It fits your curve, and again, it makes them leave 2 mana open to kill it (typically).
Constructed: 3
Limited: 3


Glittering Lynx is a personal favorite and way underrated by most players. Sure the opponent can cancel the ability but that costs mana. I think this card creates a good tempo advantage and is a great speed bump against other aggressive decks.

Constructed - Useful and there are some tricks that can make it even better - 2.85

Limited - A hard to kill creature is always good even if the opponent will probably have mana to deal with it - 2.75

PEZ - I like it here because it helps against so much of the field - 3.15


With commons, white can and will do better.  There's Deftblade Elite
(Legions), Nova Cleric (Onslaught), Soltari Foot Soldier (Tempest),
Benevolent Bodyguard (Judgment)... from the Peasant Stand point, which is
why all these cards were chosen, you can, and you should do better.

In limited, it's essentially a vanilla 1/1.  It's special ability isn't all
that special.

Constructed - 2.0/5.0 (Nothing special, and there's better.)
Limited - 2.4/5.0 (Considering the set, it's okay, but it's still middling.)
