Kinsbaile Borderguard

The Kithkin deck makes plenty of weenies, but lacks in the big creature department. This solves that problem. And your opponent can't very well solve this problem, since when it dies, it leaves tokens behind. It not only allows good recovery from a board wipe, it may even encourage you to wipe the board yourself.

Constructed- 3.5
Casual- 4
Limited- 3.5

Kinsbaile Borderguard

When I first saw this card, it reminded me of Promise of Bunrei, a relatively mild-looking card that ended up making a huge splash in constructed play. The thing about Kinsbaile Borderguard is that it doesn't have a big effect unless you already have a bunch of Kithkin on the table. If you don't, it basically does nothing. It's not going to revive Ghost Husk, but it's a reasonable insurance against Wrath of God for dedicated Kithkin decks.

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

I think that this will be the card that might allow aggro kithkin decks to show their stuff. A third turn play that may come out as a 3/3 and further allow for 3 more 1/1's when it hits the yard. The fact that the 1/1's are soldiers cannot be overlooked as well as their are quite a few good soldier effects around.
Constructed: 3 in block, 2 otherwise

Casual: 3
Limited: 3
