Wanderwine Prophets

It looks like a powerful card. However, when would you play it? Merfolk aggro doesn't want to game to last long enough for players to make good use out of six-drops, and if the game has stalled that long, then you can't connect with the Prophets. Merfolk control, on the other hand, might want more turns to take advantage of more untap steps, but needs a critical mass of Merfolk out and doesn't want a six-drop that doesn't even equate to one more Merfolk on the table. As cool as it is, promising as many extra turns as you have expendable Merfolk, the reality is that you don't have expendable Merfolk.

Constructed- 2.5
Casual- 3.5
Limited- 2.5

Wanderwine Prophets

Going by the ability itself and no context, my reaction to this card would be something along the lines of "Wow!" Unfortunately, it's rarely so simple, as the Prophets have no innate evasive abilities. They'd be pretty outrageous with a Loxodon Warhammer and a ready supply of cheap Merfolk (Summon the School, perhaps), but I think they'll make the most impact in limited. They're particularly devastating in concert with Streambed Aquitects.

Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 3/5
Limited: 3/5
