Card of the Day Reviews 



Its only real place is in a deck with a good deal of -1/-1 counter shenanigans, particularly creatures with persist.  In such a deck, it's a fairly powerful attacker.  It also forms a two-card infinite combo with Devoted Druid, which is reason enough to play it.

Constructed- 3.5

Casual- 3

Limited- 3 


Tuesday - Quillspike

Everybody knows about the combo with Devoted Druid, but other than that combo this guy is actually pretty useful. You can use it with any creature that either puts -1/-1 counters on itself, or comes into play with -1/-1 counters (helloooooo Kitchen Finks), and pump this guy up big time. I think this will see some play in Standard, but it needs a deck to go into first.

In limited, slightly situational, but still pretty good. I wouldn't pick it higher than 3rd-4th pick though.

Constructed - 3
Casual - 3

This character looks like a simple, cost-effective answer to wither and Kulrath Knight, and a fun way to interact with cumulative upkeep. There's also a rather famous infinite combo with Devoted Druid - just watch out for Condemn! All in all, a fun card to play with which can be a real lifesaver in limited games. 
Constructed: 2/5

Tuesday 8-26



Constructed: 1/1 for 3 mana do not last very long in constructed play.


Casual: Looks like a fun card to combo with, just have not found anything yet to use with.


Limited: You will have to draft alot of persist creatures to really get some good use of this little guy. Or some really good persist dudes. Get some of those Scarecrows that come with -1/-1 counters on them, like Chainbreaker from Shadowmoor.


Overall a cool creature for a green or black deck used with the -1/-1 counters. Give it flying or trample and it can be really dangerous.


Constructed: 2

Casual: 2

Limited: 3
