Krovikan Mist

I love the Illusion creature type. I like Fleeting Image and Ertai's Familiar. I liked the Mistforms. And I like that Magic finally has an Illusion lord. In Coldsnap, there are two other Illusions besides this guy. One is black and has Cumulative Upkeep [B], so in Limited this is usually a 1/1 flyer for 1U, which is passable. In constructed, Meloku decks don't really need this guy, but it'd help.

Constructed- 3
Casual- 5
Limited- 2

Krovikan Mist

Only of the archetypal decks of Coldsnap drafting is founded almost solely on this shoulders of this little flier. He's not so little, though. Although Coldsnap only has a few illusions, this one is common. It's not unusual that you can get 5 or more of him into your deck. And even with just a pair in play, you're getting a discounted 2/2 flier. With more, you can get truly ridiculous air assualts before your opponent has even a slight chance of setting up a defense. There's no way that illusions are going to take Standard by storm (expcept maybe the ones created by Meloku), but this certainly plays up the casual aspect of Coldsnap.

The Antman

Krovikan Mist- Common- Coldsnap

This thing is a absolute beast in limited if you can get a good amount of them (4+). It shouldn't be too hard either since he is a common, and a probably undervalued common. So just like the ripple cards, take him early and often, even if you have to give up a better card for him (if you are already going for a mist deck).

As for constructed this dude is pretty meh, relentless rats he 'ain't'. Decks that rely on having multiples of one card out tend to not do very well.


constructed- 1/5 again not good for constructed because of the '4 of' limit

limited- 4/5 a very under rated card that can absolutely destroy opponets

casual- 1/5 again a very meh card, relentless rats is what this guy wants to be

Phoenix Tamer

Krovikan Mist

Well, it comes into play already as a 1/1 flyer, that in itself can be helpful in a "Limited" situation ha ha ha. Again I have to look up on Coldsnap more, but if i remember correctly alot of the Illusions in Magic were from Scourge and maybe 1 to me was actually useful. I don't really care for Illusions, yet if they are helpful in Coldsnap, so be it. This seems very similar to the Avatars. They're good some times, yet playing tribal is deadly due to Engineering Plague and such. Maybe in casual, but to me otherwise useless.

Limited~1.7 (Still not sure of Coldsnap types, but will look it up)
