Oona's Blackguard

This ability will wreck your opponents hand quite quickly. Even if you're light on Rogues, any creature with a +1/+1 counter and an evasion ability will get out of hand quite quickly. And if you have lots of Rogues, the extra power boost to a normally small tribe plus the severe hand disruption should cripple nearly any opponent.

Constructed- 4
Casual- 4
Limited- 2.5

Oona's Blackguard

If I had to, I'd name either this or Bramblewood Paragon as the best Morningtide +1/+1 counter "lords." Many Rogues have fear or flying, so that Oona's Blackguard basically turns them into cheaper Abyssal Specters or Orders of Yawgmoth. It basically demands a removal spell, lest the opponent find himself with no hand next turn.

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

Oona's Blackguard

I really did not see the power of rogues until last week when my friend beat every deck I brought to the table (10 games in a row...ouch). This card was a centerpiece. Not only does it fly, which allows the rogues to hit and thus gives them the utility prowl abilities, it makes all your rogues bigger. Draft this high, and definitely put it into your rogue constructed deck. This and the stinger should allow you all the evasion you need to make prowl work.

Constructed: 4
Casual: 4
Limited: 4

Oona's Blackguard

This card demands an answer quickly because the discard is nasty and the +1/+1 counters gives Rogue decks the speed it needs to kill a player. It's definitely an automatic 4 copies in a Rogue deck but none elsewhere. Rogue decks are quite the beast so it's pretty good.

In limited, it has evasion (although only 1 power) and pumps up your Changelings and Rogues. Just hope you draw it early.

Constructed: 3.5/5
Casual: 3/5
Limited: 3/5

Because fairies weren’t annoying enough. This card is always a pain and sometimes a game winner, if you come out strong enough.

- Constructed: 4
Solid card in a good deck.
- Casual: 4
- Limited: 3
Can be real hit or miss in lim
