Card of the Day Reviews 


Ichneumon Druid is a nice anti combo card.  It would be pretty good in today's extended environment, but alas, it's not legal in extended.  Soooo... as far as casual goes, if you are having problems with your friends playing combo decks, this may be your man, (so to speak).

Not really pertinent in limited.

anti combo cards are a good idea in my eyes, and that's what this guy is. 
he's got a few things working against him though...  he's too expensive, too
fragile, too limited, and not legal in extended.  Ah well.  Since that's all
he is, he's also too unplayable in limited.
constructed 3.1
limited 1.4

    This card is just strange. Although if it wasn't so overcosted, and easy to play around it could have been good. Although an interesting ability. If they remade it, it would have to be cheaper, and the ability would just do like 2 damage per insant. Something like that anyways...
All in all, thats it for the week!
If reprinted as is...

"Take that counterspell" - the druid trying to be witty.
Basically, your opponent can counter on spell, or can shock you once per turn, and the pain begins.  Of course, the shock prolyl wont be aimed at you, but still, ignore the 1/1 aspect f the card and revel in the coolness of green direct damage!  And look at the Druid.  He looks all stupid and stuff, but he knows magic.  Looks can be decieving see.  A valuable lesson. "You should know Mr. Anderson, looks can be decieving"  "who are you?" (STUPID NEO...STUPID!)  Hey,  anyone seen Marix 3 yet?  I have :)  If you havent, your in the wrong place.  GO NOW.  NOW I TELLS YOU!  And then tell me if the final battle reminds you of DBZ as well.  But other than rocks

Did I just ignore the card in favour of random blabber rating - Yes
Shylo Elliott This little 1/1 carries a big stick against instant-reliant decks. The ability costs no mana to activate so it is a plus. However, there is no type 1 green deck to support it, and it is a big minus. I may not know a lot about Legends Limited, but in any Limited the only instants that will be cast are combat tricks. And people generally only perform one combat trick per turn. So it turns into a 1/1 for 1GG. I think I'll pass.
Type 1: 2
Legends Limited: 1
Brian Ichneumon Druid:

We end the week with another Legends, and a very fun one at that. I hate
hearing "At the end of your turn..." and I get slammed with a bunch of
stuff. This has happened to me in many matches, and this at least slows it
down. Especially Red Burn and Blue Control. Only problem, he is a 1/1, and a
creature that is in constant danger of a simple burn or provoke.

Casual: 2.5
Constructed: 1
