Player since 1995

I really like cards like this with a universal and/or modular tribal effect. A new goblin or merfolk can be good in their respective decks, but this guy is so powerful and aggressively costed that he makes every tribe, often single-handedly. If you want to keep playing green-blue faerie decks in defiance of Lorwyn's design, he lets you do that. If you're afraid you'll never get an official lord for jellyfish or camels, pick him up. If you want to anticipate Unstable by building a donkey deck with Assquatch, this guy will help it keep up with faster tribes. As long as there are tribal decks, there will be a use for this card.

Constructed: 4/5
Casual: 5/5
Limited: 3/5
Multiplayer: 4/5
EDH/Commander: 4/5

Metallic Mimic (9/14)

Metallic Mimic is tribal support for any tribe, regardless of what it is. Making all of your creatures bigger is a nifty feature (as a permanent effect), even if the issue is that it itself is quite fragile (a 2/1 with no protection). It can be absurd in “go wide" strategies, and never underestimate it, but it's nor going to be a card that can take over games single-handedly.

Constructed: 3.5
Casual: 4.75
Limited: 3.25
Multiplayer: 3.5
Commander: 4
