Card of the Day for Tuesday, March 20th 2012
Card Name » Masako the Humorless
Mana Cost » 2W
Expansion » Champions of Kamigawa
Type » Legendary Creature - Human Advisor
Card Text » Flash
Tapped creatures you control may block as though they were untapped.
- Masako allows tapped creatures to block only if they could otherwise block. It doesn't allow creatures that "can't block" to block, nonflying creatures to block fliers, etc.
Legal in » Vintage, Legacy, Commander, Modern
Gren's Thoughts » I think Masako is great in her own way. Use powerful tap creatures to dump whatever they have, then just drop Masako when your opp thinks you're wide open. That's the thing though, she's only useful in those situations, and is better played as an "instant" then putting her on the field straight out.
Art » Her depiction in the art matches very well with her story in the book series.
Notes » 2nd request for the request-a-week in March. This week it's Siyanor's request for Legendary Creatures with Flash.
