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 play...everything from the  new Mox and Lotus, to the heavy artifact inclusion and all the possible combo decks. Check it out!

Constructed: 1.5
Limited: 4.75



Osh Kosh, Guy Bosh!!  BAM!!  If this guy hits the board, let the bodies hit the floor, including probably your opponent's.  Unfortunately, it's high casting cost will almost certainly preclude it from being played in serious constructed decks.  He may find his way into type 1.Schoolyard though as a fun casual card.  Throw him in with some kind of mana acceleration.

In limited, this guy finishes games, pure and simple. In limited, it's not unusual to get to 8 mana, and if you're in a stalemate, this guy will break it if he sticks. He's not red intensive, so you pick it and play it no matter what colors you're going. Splash the red.

Constructed: 1.5
Casual: 3.75
Limited: 4.75

Judge Bill

This guy really likes to throw artifacts around. But it costs 8 mana. Welcome to crap rare status (in constructed).
In limited, the ability to throw artifacts is nothing to sneeze at. In a pinch, he can even throw himself. Bloodshot Cyclops is a first pick in 888, and since you'll have about as many artifacts in your deck in MMM draft as you do creatures in 888, this should be first pick also.
Constructed: 1
Limited: 4.5


Bosh, Iron Golem is expensive but is solid fat and has a great burn ability to finish out games. Even so, the expense and the fact that red mana (a color with plenty of access to burn) is needed for the end of game push makes it less than stellar.

Constructed - 8 mana may may win you the game but 8 mana in any color should win something- 2.65
