Enemy of the Guildpact

It looks like I get to be a "Negative Nancy" this week. I don't really care for this card either. It's a little overcosted in my eyes. The creatures comes with such a small backside that it's going to die to nearly everything. The fact that it's protected from multicolor is nice, but that's a fact likely only to come up in limited play.

Constructed: 1.5
Casual: 2
Limited: 2.5

Enemy of the Guildpact

I rather enjoy this card. It's got a nice big power and a very relevant ability. Unfortunately it's got a very fair casting cost attached to it. I say unfortunately because it's the kind of card that could only be really good if it was a bit unbalanced. It does fill a role, however. There's an awful lot of multicolored creatures and effects out there and this guy just laughs at those. You never know when this guy will be able to hold back something nasty like an Argus Kos or a Rumbling Slum. It's one of those building block creatures for limited that is perfectly reasonable to play. Don't expect to see it lighting up the constructed tables any time soon, though.

Enemy of the Guildpact

Interesting. If you really feel you're going to be smashed in the multicolor metagame, this would be great if it didn't cost 5. A nice concept, though. In limited, I would sideboard it in if I felt my opponent had sufficient icky multi color stuff to worry about. Not really for casual.

It seems great, since all the best cards in Standard and Block these days are multicolored, right? Well, there's still quite a few monocolored cards out there, so it'll just be a 4/2 in a good number of cases. Standard has better options, but this'll be a consideration in Limited for a while, if only because it's common and there'll be quite a few in the card pool.

Constructed- 2.5
Limited- 3
Casual- 1.5

Eeewww! A five drop that’s only a 4/2 and the only thing he has going for him is that he has protection from multicolored. That’s a game breaker right there. Seriously, if you cast this guy your opponent just might give you the game out of pity.

I’m sorry but what good things can I say about this guy? At least he doesn’t cost six?

.5/5 (Yes, he gets a ˝ out of five.)


Yet another eeewww! This is the card you’ll be stuck with in a draft, the card that goes around so many times and once there are only two cards left the person passing you this guy will have a smile on his face. Why you ask? Well, look at things this way... he didn’t get stuck with him.

Its cards like this one that make me glad I have a fire place...
