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.
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
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.
Casual - 2
Limited - 4.5
