Hissing Iguanar

Another card that plays well with devour and the related cards in Alara. Just make sure you notice that it triggers for your opponent's creatures, as well - lots of creatures going to the graveyard plus attacks from a 3/1 for three (and, y'know, Thunder-Thrash Elder) add up, and you'll definitely want everything you're entitled to!

Constructed: 1/5
Casual: 2/5
Limited: 3/5

Hissing Iguanar

What the heck is an Iguanar. This card has some flavor for my favorite style of play...multiplayer. For a mere 3 you can have a blocker if needed, a fair powered attacker, and even if it just sits there, it watches the carnage and spills more blood as the carnage ensues. I would love to somehow make this fellow indestructible in a group game and then hand out the mass destruction spells. Again, not a high pick in limited but one that will need to be dealt with by the opponent before the yard starts filling up.

Constructed: 2
Casual: 4
Limited: 3




Hissing Iquanar


Constructed: Nice card, but I do not expect to see in tournament decks.


Casual: This works will with alot of fun stuff. Devour, Unearth, and anything that will die or will die. Just remember it is a may and only to a player.


Limited: Good middle card to pick up. Every bite of damage helps.


Overall a fair card. With a ok ability.


Constructed: 2

Casual: 3

Limited: 2

Another nice limited card, not to good in constructed (again). Limited/sealed are creature heavy environments and as such your sure to get quite a few points out of this (same in multiplayer). The 3 power is also quite nice and allows you to swing for a nice amount when your opponents board is empty.
Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 3.5/5
Limited: 3/5
