Mosquito Guard

The 1/1 first strike for one mana has been a semi-staple in white from Tundra Wolves through Serra Zealot through Boros Recruit through Tundra Wolves again, and now Mosquito Guard. The Kithkin version offers a little extra versatility over the others since it can provide a permanent boost to another creature. By the time you need to do that instead of playing it, though, you may be facing down a horde of trampling elves or a three-colored dragon, and a +1/+1 counter isn't always going to be enough. I'd personally prefer Goldmeadow Stalwart, Goldmeadow Harrier, *and* Burrenton Forge-Tender ahead of this in a Kithkin deck.

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

Mosquito Guard

If it has reinforce, it probably sucks. It's better than Tundra Wolf, but who uses Tundra Wolf? It's inefficient no matter how you play it. Thus, it follows to not play it.

Constructed: 1/5

In constructed, there are several better one-drops for Kithkin, including Goldmeadow Stalwart, Goldmeadow Harrier, and Cenn’s Tactician. In limited, it is an average trick.
