overwhelm you with a four for 1. All four of the
Horsemajigs of the Apocalypse; Famine, Pestilence,
What a way to start a week!
Naturally, these Gearsmith characters are intended
to be used together. Alone, the commons Pestilence
(2 cost 1 threshold 1/3/3) and War (3 cost 1
threshold, 2/2/3) are “meh” as their cost/threshold
would dictate. The common Famine (1 cost 2 threshold
1/2/4) however, will stand on his own. A four speed
for 1? Yup, I’d toss him in my limited deck along
side a Basic Node for sure (the only other 1 cost 4
speed character in the game). The rare Death (5 cost
3 threshold 2/3/4), based on cost and threshold,
would compare to Rudo, Mauler, Alpha Prime H4x0r and
Entrancing Harlot (amongst others) all of which I’d
take before Death in a draft.
Together on the field, Famine, Pestilence, War and
Death would each be 3/4/5. Four characters with
total cost of 11 that would indeed be a force to be
Now onto he flavor text.
Each Horsemajig has 4 lines of a puzzle. I wouldn’t
dream of spoiling the correct order in which to read
them, but I will give you this- Strength, Life and
Speed. The rest is up to you!
So how do these menacing end bringers stand up to
limited and more importantly constructed decks?
Limited of course might net you two if your lucky.
If you’re already going Gearsmith, by all means add
them. In constructed, they’re probably only going to
be seen in a fun and casual game. If they could only
search for each other…….
Hi folks, Inoki here. Sorry for my lack of
reviews. End of my first year at college has
been creeping up on me, and I'd rather not fail.
I know, I know, personal flaw. I'll get on top
of fixing that, but for now, let's meet the
"Slivers" of The Spoils, the Horsemajigs. For
those unfamiliar with the term, Slivers are a
creature type in Magic: The Gathering which give
other slivers bonuses in the form of strength,
life, or special abilities, not unlike the
So what about them? Are they constructed worthy? I
don' know. Nothing really stands out about them.
They have fairly average stats, but their ability is
more relevant in Constructed. Until I see an
competitive deck that uses Horsemajigs, I'd rather
run nodes. At least because nodes can replace
themselves when you play them.
In limited, though,
they're creatures, and two of them (Pestilence and
War) are easily splashable.
Their abilities are much less relevant, since it's
unlikely you'll get two Horsemajigs on the field,
but regardless, they're cheap creatures with some
average stats. Worse comes to worse, I'll use them
as a blocker. Not a first pick, but still solid if
you're going gearsmith already.
Limited: 4/5 - Not a first pick, but I
feel it's solid enough to pick up.
Tournament Constructed: 3/5 - If
someone has a good deck, I'd like to see it:
