 Waterfront Bouncer

Fun! This guy was good "right out of the box" when Mercadian Masques first came out, discovered as a very good way for any limited deck to just generally BOUNCE THE HELL out of the opponent's creatures. In constructed, Bouncer found some favor in mono blue decks, particularly in Masques block constructed. More recenlty, Bouncer was a very synergistic fit in the blue/green Madness deck in Extended. Definately one of your better blue creatures for a mana cost of 1U.

 Waterfront Bouncer --

I guess I can't complain too much about this card. He's seen a fair amount of play in just about every format he's been legal in, thanks to his ability to completely control the game if your opponent doesn't have a way to deal with him. When Madness was introduced, Waterfront Bouncer only became that much better -- now you got the benefit of removing a creature from the table and gaining another benefit for dirt-cheap. I'm going to give this card a slightly higher rating in Constructed than other environments, just because of the abusive aspect of this card in Blue-Green Madness.

In limited play, Waterfront Bouncer has the same effect as in Constructed or Casual play. He allows you to control the number of creatures on your opponent's side of the board, all the while you increase your board position.

Constructed Rating: 4.0
Casual Rating: 3.5
Limited Rating: 3.5


Waterfront Bouncer
A control card for Blue that has seen some play, but will soon leave the Extended format. In casual, its ability is useful if you are going heavy control.  In limited, absolutely worth including if you are in Blue at all.
Constructed - 3.5
Casual - 2
Limited - 4.5
