Troll Ascetic

An awesome card in any format it graces, as your opponent essentially can't kill it. I'd have been just as happy to see this guy in 10th, but you only get one vote, so...

Constructed- 4.5
casual- 3

Troll Ascetic

I like the troll a lot, but something about it has always bothered it. It's just too defensive. Although a 3-power creature for 3 is strong on the curve, Ascetic often becomes a purely defensive option. And that just doesn't seem to be what green should be about. That being said, it's a great creature. Were it not for Eternal Witness, this would be the best green three-drop in Mirrodin block.

Constructed Rating - 4.0
Casual Rating - 3.6
Limited Rating - 4.2


Troll Ascetic

I think Troll would be the best overall of the three choices for the 10th Edition voting choices. It's an excellent card that would almost certainly see play. Though Ravenous Baloth would be my choice if they went with a good choice of Beasts in upcoming Type 2, if they did not, then Troll would be more playable.

In casual, it's an excellent card, and in limited, very very solid.

Constructed - 4
Casual - 3.5
Limited - 3.5
