Sage of Fables

A new Wizard lord is always appreciated around the casual tables. This one is a bit different in that you can't just plop it down and then swing with your now-one-bigger Wizards-- you actually have to play another Wizard to get some use out of it. If you already have some counters on the board, you can use its second ability immediately, but it's still a bit weak if it comes down that late, since you likely won't be drawing and playing that many more Wizards. It's a cool card and it will get used, but it just doesn't do enough on its own. |

Constructed- 2
Casual- 4
Limited- 3


Tuesday - Sage of Fables

A neat card, but one that I don't see getting a lot of play. The fact that the creature itself costs 3 makes this awfully slow, as you can't get anything running until turn 4-5 at the earliest. This guy wants to fit both into an aggro and a control environment, and he's just sub-par at both. This might be cute with something like Summon the School, though.

In limited, this card is solid if you're drafting wizards. Pumping your guys and drawing cards are two strong limited strategies.

Constructed - 2.5
Casual - 4 (play it in your Patron Wizard deck)
Limited - 3.5

Where is Plaxcaster Frogling when we need it? I'm not sure exactly where this +1/+1 counter sub-theme in Morningtide came from (with no warning), but it can make a difference in limited, where your creatures being just a little bigger or smaller than your opponent might matter. This wouldn't be the +1/+1 counter creature I played in constructed; Shadowmage Infiltrator is also a Wizard, and has a much bigger and more immediate impact on the game.

Constructed: 1/5
Casual: 3/5 (hope you saved all those Graft creatures from Dissension)
Limited: 2/5

This card interests me but I will see what wizard decks can do. Wizards are getting more synergy and this may allow more of a creature based deck allowing you to put in some of these without dedicating cards slots to card draw. Not a bad splash card in any ravager or graft type deck.

Constructed: 3
Casual: 3
Limited: 3
