The Yearling and Battlegate Mimic can fight for the same team. Yearling is better for the short term. If you play the mimic in constructed, you will certainly make sure that you can trigger him as often as possible and a 4 power first striker can really be troublesome, the yearling probably just blocks once.

Aaron’s Random Card Comment of the Day #73, 4/6/11

Although I was the lead designer on Alara Reborn, I didn’t have anything to do with making this card. I believe we handed off something much more complicated in this slot (my first thought is that Intimidation Bolt was at common, although I can’t access Multiverse from home right now to check). I believe Matt Place and his development team added this little guy in.

If you don’t know, Cerodon Yearling is a throwback to the card Bull Cerodon from two sets earlier. The Bull was an uncommon 5/5 for 4RedWhite, but otherwise the cards are the same. One surefire way to make a simple, attractive gold card is to put a keyword from each color onto a creature.

I’m not sure this card was the best use of the slot in Alara Reborn. He’s very aggressive, and wants to be cast as soon as possible, but R/W wasn’t a deck in that limited format. He would probably have been better used as a... (see all)

Aww Baby Bull Cerodon. I think it would have made more sense with this in Shards of Alara and the Daddy in Alara Reborn. That way, this one would line up in the cycle as each shard had a Enemy colored 2 card. Jhessian Infiltrator GreenBluefor Bant, Tidehollow Sculler WhiteBlack for Esper, Swerve BlueRed for Grixis, Necrogenesis BlackGreen for Jund, and Bull Cerodon 4RedWhite for Naya. If they just switched these two it would be perfect.

Aww, how cute, a baby Bull Cerodon.

I like Cerodon Yearling, but it makes me sad that Rip-Clan Crasher is worse. I get that enemy colors are harder to pair than ally colors, but I really want Rip-Clan Crasher to be better at what he does. Even just trample, as minimal as that would be on a two-power guy would have made me feel better about the duo.

I think this goes great with Scourge of the Nobilis.

The yearling is much betterthan the mimic, it can attack and block the turn its summoned. The mimic is useless unless your playing a red/white card every turn, which is very inconvenient.

Great beater for 2 mana in any red/white deck. Another great common from this set. Reborn has certainly been kind to commons.
