Write of Passage

I love the flavor of the card. The name, art, and ability all make sense and are perfect together. With that being said, I'm not a huge fan of the card. Just making a guy unblockable hasn't been known to do very much in the course of a game. The reuseable part later in a limited format game could be nice though.

Constructed: 1.5
Casual: 2.5
Limited: 2

Writ of Passage

I've never been a big fan of Dwarven Warriors - or Crafty Pathmages for you new players. The number of situations where they are useful are limited. However, sometimes they shine. This is one of the few Forecast cards which is probably equally useful to cast. It's unlikely that you'll have too many targets for this, although saving it from being destroyed by removal might be worth the cost. I could see this being useful to sneak a Dimir Cutpurse through but in all honesty, this card just sucks. That's alright though. Not all guild mechanics can be great all the way through, Azorius included.

Constructed Rating - 1.2
Casual Rating - 1.8

While not something you expect to see in constructed environments, at least they costed it right. But I kind of feel its Forecast ability is a bit sucky since you have to play it only during your upkeep. Bleh, leave this thing in the pack.

Constructed - 1.5
Casual - 1.5
Limited - 2


Writ of Passage

A fine example of Azorius flavor, but I’d say it belongs in a Simic deck. Why? Because either hardcast or Forecast, it only checks the creature’s power when the ability resolves. There’ll be plenty of time to increase the creature’s power with cards like Giant Growth or Simic Guildmage’s first ability. As such, this makes a great addition to any Limited deck that can play it, since those games often come down to a board clogged with creatures and one evasion creature slipping through over several turns. It’d even be splashable if you’ve got enough legal targets. In constructed, I’m not quite sure. It may be a bit below standards there.

Constructed- 2.5
Casual- 3.5
Limited- 3.5

poo... that’s all I can say about this horrible, horrible Aura.

I’m very much speechless, got nothing and this card is not even worth the effort. You know I love to bash a card here and there just for giggles but this is just too easy. All I’m gona say is poo.



You see what I said up there? Well, multiply that times two because I’ll take a 0/1 creature with no abilities over this “oh so wonderful card” and I’ll get more use out of the 0/1.

sigh... that’s all I can say other than bad design team, very bad!
