Cover of Winter

Unless the damage prevention is efficient or very tricky, it's usually not worth using. This falls into the "not worth using" category. It's not going to save very many creatures usually. And even when the effect is useful, you won't have mana to do anything else.

Constructed: 1.5
Casual: 2
Limited: 2


Cover of Winter

This card serves one purpose and only one purpose. To help white snow decks stall. So, it's awesome in a white control deck with snow lands. In any other deck, it's useless.

Constructed- 4
Casual- 1.7
Limited- 1.2

Friday- Cover of Winter

SHIELDS UP! I always know when someone drafts this at FNM, because they always yell SHIELDS UP!
Anyway. This really doesn't have a place in Constructed right now, but you could build a very cool mana-intensive build featuring Haazda Shield-Mate and this. Protection with Yosei as a win condition? Fun times.
In casual, this is just fun as everything. With 8 people not able to kill you with your giant Cover of Winter, things get highly amusing.
In limited, this is nice. It protects you, and saves your guys in combat. With enough snow mana to back it up, this is like a five-turn combat trick.

Constructed- 3/5
Casual- 3/5
Limited- 3.5/5
