Sprouting Thrinax

It doesn't look like a good year to be a deck that wants to attack. I've never seen so many creatures with power equal to their mana cost in one set, much less ones that make their controller able to block three creatures the next turn! The only consolation is that the Thrinax is still somewhat hard to play alongside other killjoys like Kitchen Finks and Troll Ascetic (but why did you have to come back now, Reflecting Pool!).

Constructed: 3/5

Well. Gargadon once again has found a best friend. I only wish it was a goblin. For a mere 3 mana investment you get a 3/3 that keeps on giving. Even without Gargadon this guy has real potential. I can't see a reason why you would not put it into a deck with these three colors. In multiplayer, I really like this guy. A solid investment.

Constructed: 3/4
Casual: 4
Limited: 4
