doc Today we look at another member of the Majig family, the Rare Gearsmith Character Gigamajig.

One of only two 6 threshold cards in The Spoils (and both are in Gearsmith), Gigamajig is holding down the position of biggest baddest Gearsmith Character. At a cost of 6 you get a 10/10/2. When compared to the biggest baddest in the other trades, Arcanist has a covert 12/12/3 that costs twice as much, Rogue has a nifty 5/7/6 that costs 9, Warlord has a 10/10 that is 2 faster at speed 4 but costs twice as much (and is 5 threshold), Banker has a 5/8/3 that only costs one more at 7. If you're playing mono trade anyway, this guy's the best deal out there!

In limited (sealed) it'd be had to rationalize playing Gigamajig. In draft however, if you can major in Gearsmith, it's a keeper. In constructed big beaters are often put aside in favor of weaklings with great abilities.

Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 1.5/5
 
lgmk Gigamajig... wow. It only costs six yet it has 10/10/2 stats. What is the world coming to? Oh, it has six threshold. That changes things. In Sealed, this card is simply not viable. Maybe if you're playing a whole ton of Elitism for some reason, but otherwise, no.

In Draft, this card is simply amazing. If you manage a mono-gearsmith (unlikely) and are able to get this down on turn four... I'm betting that you're going to win the game. There are all kinds of things your opponent can do to destroy it. But if you're careful (and this is Mono-Gearsmith we're talking about, so Hidden Sandwhich is an option) this card will just keep pounding them.

Now admittedly, that isn't likely in draft. For constructed though....

For draft, if you see this, grab it. Then grab other Gearsmith and Limited Liability along with other one thresh banker cards. Those will keep it alive. Or grab Quotidian Assasination and go Arcanist Gearsmith. Or Tactician Vacation. Just find something to protect it.

Sealed: 1/5
Draft: 4/5
Constructed: 5/5
