Burning-Tree Shaman

This guy is SUPER. If you are playing Red/Green, this guy should absolutely be in there. He's an oversized guy for his cost. And his ability is super. Niv-Mezzit, Sensei's Divining Top, and a bunch of other cards seeing play right now have activated abilities. This could be an amazing card in the new standard environment.

Constructed: 4.5
Casual: 3.5
Limited: 3

The Antman

Burning-Tree Shaman- Rare-Guildpact

hey everyone, today we have the activated ability hating shaman, Burning-Tree Shaman.

just like his flavor text says, this guy hates everything from Meloku to Psychatog. his ability to deal 1 damage for each activated ability makes decks that abuse them like psychatog wish they were playing aggro.


Constructed- 4.9/5 it WILL see constructed play in standard and maybe extended
Limited- 4/5 a 3/4 for 3 that punishes your opponet for using glare? sign me up
Casual- 1/5 meh... nothing too good here

Final Thought- great card that will see play until it rotates out of extended


Burning Tree Shaman

Hot Hot HOT! First, for only 3 mana, you get a hefty 3/4. Then, its ability frosts the cake by making it painful whenever your opponent tries to activate something on his field. It plays well into a no-nonsence, beat the crap outta you Red Green build that doesn't rely on activated abilities to get the job done.

Also solid as a 3/4 for 3 in limited play, though you'll need to judge whether or not your own activated abilities will hurt you too much. Solid in casual play too.

Constructed - 4.5
Casual - 4
Limited - 3.5
