I have the full Rare list posted on some eBay auctions. Click here to see the full list and click on each name to see the picture of each card.  The set is REALLY different, and will bring a huge change to the way we have to see the new Mox and Lotus!!!!!

Constructed: 4
Limited: 4.5


With so many of the Mirrodin set being artifacts, artifact destruction suddenly becomes very important.  Scott has already been scoping out a few combos from Mirrodin, and it's pretty crazy...most involve artifacts.  So somehow, some way, you better have artifact destruction at the ready.  Glissa can destroy artifacts over and over if she survives, giving you card advantage in your deck. And she's not a horrible P/T for the casting cost to boot.  We'll have to see what constructed decks find her worthy coming up soon.

In limited, you PLAY HER.  Recurring artifact removal is way too good to pass up in this environment, and she's worth every mana.  There are some decent ways to use that extra mana in this set, including casting items and re-equipping creatures, etc., so you'll probably find a way around her drawback.

Constructed: 3.75
Limited: 4.75

Grren is really good at artifact destruction, or at least they want us to think the color wheel says so. So one of the storyline characters gets a repeatable ability to dewstroy artifacts. This will be really big, I think, for the block constructed format at least, and you'll probably see this in type 2 also. You just have to find a mana sink for your mana, which either means to cast a spell (or three), or have a permanent that can use it.
In limited, this is even better, as fully half the set is artifacts. First pick material.
Constructed: 3.5
Limited: 4.75


Glissa Sunseeker is solid but overpriced for the ability. Sure 4 mana for a 3/2 first strike creature isn't so bad and the ability to destroy articfacts is great but I would rather have real fat for 4 mana and use a cheaper creature for artifact removal.

Constructed - Solid but 4 mana is rough - 2.85

Limited - First Strike helps rule the ground game but artifacts are less of an issue- 2.95
