This is certainly one of the most unique characters in the game.  It's the only creature that can't attack.  It's stats are decent, but not all THAT great for a 6 drop.  Why would you play it?  Oh yeah, that's right - because he's a beatstick.  Who cares if it can attack - all your army Sentiels get +2 ATK - they're doing his work for him.  Oh yeah, and speaking of army sentinel cards, you're gonna have a LOT of them.  The ability to start putting a whole bunch of these into play with the ability is pretty sick.

The bottom line is you're gonna overwhelm your opponent pretty darn fast with this guy on the board.

In limited, total junk.  No purpose at all - no way you'll have enough good sentinels to make it playable.

I need to make sure people understand my rating on this card for constructed.  A rating is based on the likelyhood that a card could be used in a deck.  Obviously, you're not going to splash Master Mold in your X-Men deck.  In your Sentinel deck, though, he's required - bottom line

So a lot of people are ordering Sentinel cards.  But haven't seen any in tournaments yet.  They are just too weak and can't while they can do some interesting things, their downfalls are too great to make them worthwhile. I dunno. Scott seems to disagree with me on this one.  He may be right, but from everything I've seen, while you can make an interesting deck, you can't make a competitive one.  This may be more for the casual crowd.
 
In limited, this guy sucks some serious butt. Don't bother.

What, you can't attack with him. Why does he have range then?
My crystal ball is hazy but I have a feeling this guy will get better as more sets come out. This guy has a fairly descent size butt to get in the way, but not aggressive enough. When we first started to get orders for this game it looked like most people were playing sentinels, but as it stands now I haven't seen a good deck with them yet. Key word being YET. He is a key card to the deck, but again there needs to be a good deck first.
 
In limited he is almost useless. You need to be more aggressive and not defensive, plus his ability most likely wont be used at all.

hmmmÖ yummy

 

Actually I donít know what to say about this guy because I tested Sentinels a while back and wasnít too happy about them. I did try to build the deck around him and that might be why it didnít work out too well. His stats are a bit below average for a 6 drop and I can only wonder why does he have range. 0.o

 

Anywho, he could be really goodÖ in theory but I havenít been able to find a decent deck w/ him. I still say heís a Sliver Queen.

 

2.5/5

 

Limited

 

Here you probably wonít get to a lot of Sentinels which makes this guy rather bad. Yeah, no sentinels = donít even bother.

 

1/5

Master Mold, Sentinel Supreme -- 

I have been on the receiving end of a Master Mold who was helping out five
Wild Sentinels, three Sentinel, Mark I, one Sentinel, Mark II, and two
Sentinel, Mark IVs...and it was not pretty.  Oh, and about half of those
came into play that turn.  Thanks, Master Mold.

Needless to say, I lost that game due to the two extremely good abilities
attached to Master Mold: the ability to trick characters into play and the
boost given to all the Sentinels that were staring at me (and a well-timed
Reconstruction Program, but that's beside the point).  Thus, I am a bit
inclined to give Master Mold a very good rating.  'Nuff said.

However, on the limited side of the game, you had better have a LOT of
Sentinels to be playing this guy; otherwise, he's awful.

Constructed Rating: 3.5
Limited Rating: 1.0
