Knight of the Reliquary

It doesn't accelerate, but it can color-fix and thin your deck out while simultaneously making itself bigger. If you've got Panoramas or Terramorphic Expanse, go for it. If you don't, then it's a little slow, it has to tap to get a land which means it can't attack that turn, and green has better ways to fetch lands anyway. I guess it could block and then use its ability to give itself +1/+1? Yeah, like anyone's gonna attack into that not seeing it coming.

Constructed- 2
Casual- 3.5
Limited- 3

Knight of the Reliquary

This is a very interesting card to try and design a deck for. Turning a Forest into a Treetop Village or Ghost Quarter is very powerful - control decks often find it an absolute nightmare to deal with powerful lands. On the other hand, the Knight works relatively slowly, and there are plenty of chances to stop the silliness before it starts. It's an extremely powerful card, but the jury is still out for now.

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

Knight of the Reliquery
This is the kind of flavorful card that someone designs with ideas in mind. A clear and easy addition to the word of Terrevore Decks that are out there. However, the key to this fellow is that he goes in other decks as well. He searches for ANY LAND...did I say that clearly...ANY LAND. Alright, I think I would rather have this gaea's cradle instead of this forest...done. I think I would rather tap my forest for mana, but then sac it to bring out my wasteland. Yikes.
Constructed: 4/5
Casual: 4
Limited: 4/5

Knight of the Reliquary

This card is overrated in my opinion. In Standard, there's not enough lands to boost it. In Extended where there are enough lands, I think the power level is a bit low. The activated ability is kind of weak too. I really just don't see what's so good about it. Early game, it dies to burn and Terror. Late game, it's activated ability only land thins and it still dies to Terror. A lot of creatures die to burn and Terror but this card leaves no significant advantage behind after it's gone.

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




Knight of the Reliquary


Constructed: This card had some hype when the set first came out, but we have yet to see any results. I think it is a sleeper hit of Conflux. It only problem is it's a 2/2 and you cannot use it's ablitity right away. Which is a good thing.


Casual: I do not know how well this card is in multi-player yet.


Limited: It's a okay creature, but it can be taken care before it got out of hand. Thinning your deck of lands and the fact that it puts a land into play untap makes it a great ability.


Overall a good card, that was a little over hype when it came out.


Constructed: 3


Limited: 4


Friday - Knight of the Reliquary

this guy's seeing some play in extended right now with the loam decks and aggro bant decks. I don't really like him, but that's my personal opinion that i'd rather play something else for the 3 mana. It's great in casual and limited as it can find any land you need.

Constructed: 4
Casual: 4
Limited: 3
