Izzet Guildmage

This is another card that's neat just in general terms of it's ability. I'm not sure how excited I am about it though. It does cost three to copy something. And it's still a creature that's only a 2/2. This can make it hard to protect when setting up for the ability. There are a few combos involving this card that you can expect to see in Friday Night Magic tournaments. But other than that, I wouldn't expect it to go crazy.

Izzet Guildmage

Is this a control freak's dream? Or is it a firebug's dream? Both? The two colors that tend to live on opposite sides of the fence, Red and Blue, seem to come to a truce here in the Izzet clan. Talk about confused. They both want their respective abilities, but can a deck be built in which they can both find harmony together? I know I have some players that are eyeing this Guildmage, and a few are buying now, in anticipation of the possibilities.

In casual, playable if you have an inkling to go Red Blue with Instants and Sorceries. In limited, not quite the bomb, like the other Guildmages, simply because you probably won't have enough spells that you really feel a deep need to copy. IG will just sit there most of the time, being an odd Grizzly Bear, but when you ARE able to utilize his abilities, he could be worth the wait.
