Card of the Day Reviews

Wizards of the Coast is DARING you to try to
play this card. The casting cost of 4GGBB is
extremely daunting. However, should you manage
to get this giant thing into play, be prepared
to take advantage of a creature with more SICK
abilities than anything this side of Morphling.
You get to force creatures to block you for just
one green mana, if you are blocked by are are
blocking a creature, simply push the REMOVE
CREATURE button for one green and one black and
the creature is removed from the game. Later,
why not return one of the creatures you have
removed from play for the low, low cost of 2B.
This creature's abilities are frighteningly
powerful. Of course, you have to get her into

Man...oh....man. I'm not sure how many of these
will see tournament play because of it's cost,
but I definitely expect to see a lot of the
Sisters of Stone Death sold to casual players.
This thing can force creature to block it. It
can kill creatures. Then it can take those
creatures to come work for your side. Crazy.
Again, the cost is a bit much, but once it's in
play, it's likely to be pretty strong.
I'm diggin' this card for any form of Magic that
doesn't go too quickly, meaning a lot of games
outside of tournament play. For any level of
competitive play, Sisters of Stone Death is just
going to be too expensive to see any play;
however, casual players should give this card
Constructed Rating: 1.5
Casual Rating: 3.5
Limited Rating: 2.5
I hate this card. Seriously. This card is
unplayable in constructed formats because it
doesn’t do enough to justify playing it in any
format. It is extremely expensive for a 7/5
body, and using all of its abilities requires a
truckload of mana. In any constructed format
there’s far better things to be doing with
fourteen mana over two turns. So why do I hate
it? This is a ridiculous card in limited. The
only saving grace of this card is its high
casting cost. This is, overall, a card that
removes skill from the game. You play this, it
dominates the board. Due to its size and the
black mana in the casting cost, this thing will
be impervious to most removal. I hate cards like
this. If a card is going to be a limited bomb,
at least it could be remotely playable in
Casual – 2
Limited – 4
Geez...this is pretty damn scary. Also very mana
intensive in cost. But if you can manage to get
this on the board somehow, the Sisters are
totally brutal. Basically, it's 6 mana, steal a
creature that can't evade blocking. A must play
in limited, but be sure to support it with mana
accelleration. Sisters is game over if you can
pull it off.
Constructed - 2.5 (unless someone finds a way to
reanimate this, then 4.5)
Casual - 4.5
Limited - 4.5
Everyone loves combo cards. And with this one
you don’t even have to worry about not having
one of the pieces because.. it’s all in this
card! I’d love to bust this gal in sealed at the
prerelease. Just think of how awesome it would
be to slowly destroy your opponent’s army, one
by one, stealing a few too, and they can’t do a
thing about it! :D
I think that too many people are going to
dismiss this card unfairly. You don’t have to
pay six mana per turn; three mana to remove
something from the game is still very good. No
creature is safe when Sisters is on the board.
People are going to try this gal in Rock. I
don’t think he’ll do too well due his casting
cost of eight mana, but if you can get him out,
she’ll be very good.
This may prove to be a very useful card indeed.
With the new Concoke
ability coming in, i can't wait to see what
kinda game play the new set is bringing in. Very
good for retrieval and is going to show magic
players that you don't really need alot of mana
to get your creatures out, you just need some
creatures out to get others.
