Lo and behold, I present... THE WORST CARD OF ALL TIME.

Now, you may point out, stats wise, this isn't truly the worst creature in the game. Bramble Elemental is a less efficient win condition, and there are noncreature cards that have less use (this is still a highly efficient 20 turn clock with evasion!). But as to WHY this is truly the worst creature of all time, let me try and break this down.

First, let's get it out of the way, it is very weak. 3W for a 1/1 flying is only marginally better than Chimney Imp, and that has a pretty sick death ability! The activatable ability is so overcosted that it is mostly irrelevent, but sure, you can sneak a few points of damage in. So this card is obviously weak to the point of being completely unplayable in every situation, but that is hardly unique, every set has a couple of those.

Second, that ability. That ability tempts you. It gives you the promise of "This guy won't just be a 1/1 flying for 4!". With Squire, you have no hope. You lay ... (see all)

At first, I thought the art was kind of oriental. Like one of those tapestries.

But then I noticed it's just plain white. I don't know if Staples gave up, or if he was late, or... who knows why!

All we know is this was a card that has nothing going for it.

Greg Staples: Alright, the art for that Aven is almost done. I still need to shade the clouds and paint the sky. But I'll leave it at that for now. (leaves the room)
Henry Stern: Guys, you gotta take a look at that bird soldier card we made, it's so bad it's funny!
But we still need an artwork that suits this card, any ideas?
Some development team member (pointing at the table): What about that unfinished artwork from Greg?

The art is the only good part of this card.

"Hey what if we print a 1/1 with flying for four mana?"
"That's good. How about we give it a mana hog ability that eats through your hand?"
"That would be excellent, but only if the effect of that ability doesn't amount to the creature being more then a 2/3 with flying."

Why is rated so low? With 19 cards to discard and 38 and WhiteWhiteWhiteWhiteWhiteWhiteWhiteWhiteWhiteWhiteWhiteWhiteWhiteWhiteWhiteWhiteWhiteWhiteWhite mana you should win with 1 single swing!

I... I think I ran this card when I started out.

...I'm going to have to lie down for a while.

...I'm too busy laughing to even describe a rating...

I'll give it a five, just because I'd pay to see someone win with something this bad in their deck.

Point five, that is. How this EVER got over .5 is beyond me-- someone must have misclicked or forgotten that 1 wasn't the lowest score here.

Well, this explains the motivation for Squadron Hawk, and to a lesser extent Angry Birds.

Among the worst cards ever.
