Wednesday - Nettle Sentinel

Green finally gets a decent 2/2 for G. The drawback really isn't that bad in a MGA-type deck, because you should always have a creature spell or two handy, and if you don't, it's probably the late game where this guy paves the way for bigger beaters. MGA is a good block deck and this guy is one of the reasons why.

In limited, I'd probably play him if I got him, but I wouldn't pick him that high. Don't even maindeck him if you don't have a heavy green component, though (remember, green hybrid cards are still green).

Casual - 3
Limited - 2.5

Nettle Sentinel
I've always thought that green needed and deserved creatures this good. Sure, the disadvantage looks pretty serious, but you don't really need a creature like this to attack after about the third turn, which is also about the time you're likely to start running out of green spells from your original hand. It also has two relevant creature types, which means that even in mono-green a deck that starts with the Sentinel can deal a surprisingly large amount of damage very fast.

Nettle Sentinel


Constructed: This little elf needs a home. Great one drop but elves are not very high for block or standard.


Casual: Great one drop for the casual elf deck of doom.


Limited: Go heavy in green this little dude is great. Get more than one because it is common.  Not drafted a green base deck in awhile. May try it out next time.


Overall a great common elf that requires you to play heavy green to make him work.


Constructed: 2

Casual: 3

Limited: 3




BeJose Nettle Sentinel G
Creature - Elf Warrior
Nettle Sentinel doesn't untap during your untap step.
Whenever you play a green spell, you may untap Nettle Sentinel.

Nice early beater, combo potential, Cool card. Play it turn 1, swing for 2 turn 2, play another green creature and untap it to block. I don't see MGA being to big in the current meta but you never know with Alara.

Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 3.5/5
Limited: 2/5
