Remember when I said yesterday Nightcrawler might be the 2nd best 4 drop in the game?  Well, this is the best - by a lot.

Getting a double digit power in 4 slot is just wrong.  Combine it with a boatload of things like Savage Land and The New Brotherhood that make this guy swing for enough to take down anything feasibly recruitable in the game, and you have a bonafide monster on your hands.  Every Brotherhood deck should run 4.  It's insanely good.

Limited is slightly worse since you can't build you deck around it and you're less likely to have your expendable Brotherhood card in hand, but it's not like I'm gonna pass on it there either

Yeeowsa!  An 11/7 for a 4 drop is AMAZING!  Who CARES if you have to discard a Brotherhood character from your're drawing 2 a turn anyhow and it's so worth having a big guy on the board early. In constructed, he's a key card in the Brotherhood deck, which centers on fast and furious.  Yeah, this guy qualifies, I'd say. In the deck you use your Locations and Plot Twists to pump his ATK to retarded levels and then break through for lots of damage.  By the time Sabretooth hits the board, your opponent's endurance should be wilting significantly, and this guy should really do some serious damage for you.  In fact, this card is so key to the 4th drop in the Brotherhood deck, the missing it can really hurt you.  Blob seems to be the other character you'll see in that slot, and while decent, Sabre really packs the best wallop in this aggressive deck.
In limited, you need to be playing a significant amount of Brotherhood characters to make him work.  This usually isn't a problem if you plan well since Brotherhood is one of the main character lines.  Then just hope for a little luck to see this guy in your hand when it comes time to drop your 4...if so, smile! Good times.

Simply put this card is A-maze-ZING! With an added ZING!
In my opinion he is the best creature in the game for his cost.
Turn 4 with a Savage Beatdown and Savage Land this guy turns into a Savage Beating.
The only reason this guy isn't a 5 in constructed is that you must play somewhat heavy brotherhood in order to get him out and abuse him to his full ability.
The only reason he isn't a 5 in Limited is that you may not get enough Brotherhood characters to get him out as early as possible, but if he comes out on turn 4 with initiative, you may want to cry, Lord knows I have.

This character has the single largest attack value when it comes to four drops. Wolverine, New Fantastic Four could potentially attack with an attack value of 13 but he’s not as reliable as this character. His 11 ATK, 7 DEF stats for a four drop make him one of the biggest beat sticks and one of the major reasons why Brotherhood decks are taking your opponent out with in 6 turns. The only draw back on this card is that you have to discard another Brotherhood character from your hand to recruit him but I’ve never seen that small effect keep someone from play thins character or from being able to recruit him.


All in all this character has a lot of power behind him and is a monster in the right deck…. which is just about any Brotherhood deck. 0.o




hmmm… other than the fact that you probably won’t get to see him in this environment, he’s still pretty amazing in Limited. The only thing you can do is pray that your opponent doesn’t get lucky enough to pull him or you’ll be in for a painful surprise. When it comes to this format his stats and low recruit costs speak for themselves. His small draw back is almost insignificant in this format because you’ll have more characters in your deck, all you have to do is get lucky enough to pull him and pray that your opponent doesn’t kill you for playing him turn 4.



      Not much can be said about Sabretooth [Feral Rage] that hasn't already been said.  Tooth and Savage Beatdown are by far the most costly cards to buy in singles, and the most sought-after trades in the game.  This is not without good reason, Sabretooth is easily the best 4 cost character in the game and probably the best "pound for pound" overall character as well.  Unfortunately, he can't simply be played in any deck.  The only drawback to this amazing card is that you must discard a brotherhood character card from your hand when he comes into play, not that it matters, since the brotherhood is the most aggressive character type in the game. 
    So here you have Sabretooth with a 4 resource requirement at 11 attack and 7 defense, when the next best 4 resource character is Titania with 7 attack and 8 defense... see the difference?  It would be a sin to rate this card any lower than 4.5 when 5 means that if you don't play 4 of that card in every deck then you shouldn't be playing in tournaments.
     Sabretooth loses a little power in limited only because dropping him will be alot harder when you don't have access to 4 of every brotherhood card.  He would still be an amazing 1st pick but would force you to take many subpar brotherhood cards if you wanted to play him correctly and consistantly.

Sabretooth, Feral Rage --

Sick, sick, sick, sick...SICK! Hands down, Sabretooth, Feral Rage is the *BEST* character in the set. Discarding a Brotherhood card from your hand is not nearly big enough of a drawback, especially when you (as a Brotherhood player) have access to cards like Avalon. He singlehandedly makes me want to play a Brotherhood deck...just so I can experience playing this monster. This is one of only two or three cards in Marvel that I can even consider giving a 5.0 rating.

In limited, he is still a great option, but the drawback is a bit greater since you have to concentrate your deck strategy a bit more. If you pop him in the last pack and you haven't picked up any Brotherhood, he isn't too stellar, but you might counter-draft him just so you don't get mauled.
