Karplusan Yeti

I wonder if this guy is getting his creature type changed. I can't remember too many Yeti in Magic. I'd imagine it will be changed to giant. That doesn't change much as far as this card goes though. This is generally a fun card. It likely won't be in any of the popular decks, but it's mildly useful. I'm sure casual players will find some uses for this card, since it can keep killing small creatures every turn. That's also the same reason you will likely want it in limited play.

Karplusan Yeti

Blah. I can think of several red creatures that cost five that do an infinitely better job of removing creatures from the board than Karplusan Yeti -- and they won't die in the process! If Karplusan Yeti was priced at four mana, I might consider playing it, but as is, I doubt the Yeti will do much once 9th Edition hits other than eat up space in packs and, later, in your chafe stack.

For limited play, I can go a little bit easier on Karplusan Yeti. It does serve as both a dude and a removal spell, so it will usually get to make the cut into any deck that I run and have red in.

Karplusan Yeti

While not the thing that constructed decks are made of, Yeti does have some great appeal in the limited realm. The ability to off 2 toughness creatures at will, and 3 toughness in a jam, makes Yeti a quick pick for Red. Just consider using it at the end of turn step of your opponent to avoid him using Sorcery speed burn to finish your Yeti off.

In casual, it's okay, but not exactly pizzazzy, so probably won't see much play.
