Mirror Entity

It may look vulnerable, but it's as good as the number of mana you have available. It often has a similar effect as an Overrun, or even more. The fact that you can adjust the size as you choose, optimize any tribal effects, and reuse the ability makes this card incredibly powerful and incredibly versatile.

Constructed- 3.5
Limited- 4.9
Casual- 4


Tuesday - Mirror Entity

This can potentially be a devastating aggro card, as on turn 4 you suddenly find your opponent sending 3+ 4/4 creatures into the red zone. This would be insane in White Weenie, but this is about the only good card that deck has right now. Maybe once we get into Shadowmoor block, but not right now. The fact that this also gives your guys Changeling is just some sweet icing on the cake.

In limited, great for getting bonuses from having creature types, and great for beatdown, not to mention a decent mana sink.

Constructed - 4
Casual - 4
Limited - 4

Mirror Entity

It took me a while to sell me on this creature, but having seen it in action both on my side and against me, I can testify that under certain circumstances it can be a ridiculous bomb. Even played onto an empty table post-Wrath, it will be attacking for at least four or five by itself, demanding an answer. In combination with tribal lords like Wizened Cenn or Imperious Perfect, it can end the game in a single attack. It's even a Rebel so your Amrou Scout can toss it into play at the end of a turn. What more do you need?

Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 5/5
Limited: 4/5

Tuesday's Card is Mirror Entity. For three mana you get a 1/1 changeling that for x mana makes all creatures you control X/X changelings. Mirror Entity can be a powerful power-up card for a deck, but it needs a lot of mana to be worth it. It can solve tribal issues you may have, but to make it work you need a lot of mana and White isn't really the color of mana production. It's not bad, but it is mana intensive.

Mirror Entity
It's quite deceiving, as this is a 1/1 that can easily win the game via its ability. It's Changeling ability lets it get out any of the reveal a ___ or pay X cycle, and once they're out, this get easily power them each to 4/4 or higher to attack for game. The only bad thing is that is starts out as a 1/1 so pretty much anything kills it without 4 mana to pump it to 4/4 to escape from Nameless Inversion, Incinerate and so on.
In limited, this is a bomb. Dropping this out with mana open essentially means good game for the opponent.
Constructed: 3.5/5
Casual: 3/5
Limited: 4.5/5
