A 4/4 flier is enough to disrupt most games of
Limited--- too bad it's a mythic rare. Really,
Wizards? I thought mythic rare was going to be
reserved for cards that felt... I don't know,
mythic? Like once-in-a-lifetime cards? This
thing looks and feels to me like Esper has a
whole army of them.
But I digress. If you don't want to use white
and black in your blue decks, it's a 4/4 flier
that can untap itself. But if you do, it becomes
all that, plus being repeatable
creature/enchantment kill. Once you hit turn six
or seven and can pay 3WUB each turn, your
opponent's army eats it one by one. And since it
doesn't come down until turn five anyway....
Tuesday - Ethersworn Adjudicator
I do question the choice of making this a mythic
rare, but I don't question how good this can
potentially be. Granted, it is mana intensive,
but even if you don't have enough mana to use
this guy more than once per turn, repeatable
Mortify is still pretty good. Later, when you do
have the mana to untap this guy, you have a win
condition. I think this may see a little play in
control decks, because it is pretty efficiently
costed for what you get...just watch out for
In limited, if you're lucky enough to open this,
you take it, no questions asked.
Constructed - 3
Casual - 3
Limited - 4.5
In the Alara block, there are a lot of cards
that are reasonable in a one- or two-color deck
and devastating in a three-color deck.
Ethersworn Adjudicator is an excellent example
of how to design that type of card. Going from
"bad Serra Sphinx" to "flying mechanized
artillery" is about the upgrade you expect for
two extra colors. In limited, just be glad this
guy is mythic and you're not likely to see more
than one of him per draft.
It's a big flying 4/4 for to much for Standard
or Extended. But Block a good Esper deck can do
very well with him. Drop some early Etherium
Sculptors and Master of Etherium and you have
one big dude. And why not throw in one Skill
Borrower for fun.
So far Mythic rares are doing well with the
casual players. This dude should see some fun
This is a real bomb for Shards or Conflux only
drafts. Sealed I would try very hard to make a
Esper deck from my pool of cards. This Mythic
rare is a good one for Limited format.
This is a cool card. Having the ability to just
wipe out creatures (possibly two at a time)
seems really special. It's a flying 4/4 which is
always a bonus as well. As we've seen from
recent standard play, five mana isn't that hard
to reach these days.
It's definitely a top card in limited play. Most
casual groups are likely to gloss over it,
because there are so many more efficient ways to
off creatures. Eldar Dragon Highlander players
might like this guy though.
The reason I picked this card is mostly because
it's just a cool card.
A 4/4 flyer for 5cc that has built in removal is
extremely cool. In sealed this thing was great
for me. In constructed...I think it'd be an
extremely fun card to play around with. When you
get cards that can generate advantage for free,
all by themselves, you can make big things
Thats a concept you learn when you play Yu-Gi-Oh!,
and it certainly transfers over to M:TG. Card
advantage is key. I love cards with built in
removal, card draw or anything else that will
gain you card advantage without actually having
to cast more cards.
By and large this is a fun creature to play
around with. I'll probably make a deck with it
and test it out against the casual players at my
