Rimehorn Aurochs

And we conclude tribal week here on COTD with an Aurochs, one of the best ones. Rimehorn, besides the attacking bonus, has one of the best abilities ever to require snow mana. If you've got snow mana, you can force bad blocks all over the place with this guy and kill off creatures at will. Like Drooling Groodion, it might be a bit mana-intensive to catch on in constructed, but it's a Limited bomb.

Constructed- 3
Casual- 3.5
Limited- 4.9

Rimehorn Aurochs

I've never really liked Aurochs. Creatures that need other creatures to be strong enough to warrant their cost just seem like begging for over-extension. That being said, the Rimehorn isn't all bad. His luring ability can be used to generate combats between any creatures, rather than just itself and something else. That can cause some very unfortunate blocks for your opponent. Especially if you've got a couple Bull Aurochs to pump up the herd when you attack. Aurochs are never going to be tournament viable, but they are entertaining to say the least.

Constructed Rating - 1.0
Casual Rating - 2.4
Limited Rating - 2.5

Rimehorn Aurochs

I dont know, I'm not so sure about this card. Maybe in Limited, due to the sheer fact of its effect and how big it is, this could help you win a late game. I find no other use for it Constructed at all, and well Casual....everyone plays differently right? Let them have fun with this card, i know i wont, i dont like it.

Casual~1.5 (Woo-hoo it has trample, let the peons use it)
