Field Marshal

Another Soldier of fortune. Soldiers are probably the worst creature type of the eight that Odyssey made broken, but still pretty awesome. If you liked Odyssey, you'll love this guy. Even in Coldsnap he's got some playmates, but nothing spectacular. He works in a Surging Sentinels deck in limited, but that's about it.

Constructed- 2.5
Casual- 4
Limited- 3

Field Marshall

Like Lovisa, yesterday, the Field Mashall has the unfortunate attribute of potentially pumping your opponent's creatures. However, unlike the chieftess, this one's not legendary. Instead it's a return to the good old 3-mana lords that we know and love. There's a lot of good soldiers out there. The Boros and Azorius have seen to that. Soldiers are likely to remain one of the preeminent tribes for a long time as well. Though I don't see tribal making a big splash in standard, there's a lot of fun to be had with this guy.

Constrcuted Rating - 2.0

Hello once again, I'm back with the COTD to help any fellow players in building decks with cards and...yeah you know what I'm talking about. Anyway, I have yet to really get into Coldsnap yet, but from what i see here is a pretty solid card. From the way i see it, It's the "Goblin King" of Soldiers. I say It's pretty good in Constructed i would think, yet im not sure how many soldiers are in Coldsnap, so I can't say much for Limited. This does however, power up your oppenets creatures as well, that is a downside. Not really a main gamewinner, but i believe it'll make great support in the series, and of course may even find its way into white weenie as well.

Constructed~ 3
Limited~1.7 (I'm not so sure about Coldsnap, sorry if I'm wrong)
