My favorite Guildmage. Turns dead draws into removal spells, generates board position, can be used as an infinite mana outlet, and it's an RedBlack Zombie Shaman (two good tribes) bear! Great art, too.

Saying its second ability is bad is like saying that it sucks to win the lottery on pay day.

His second ability is actually very good, providing a nice chump blocker in a pinch or the ability to punch through your opponent's defences to deliver the final blow (especially useful late game with 8+ mana available). I've won way too many games with his second ability to agree that it's "completely and utterly terrible". It's not.

His abilities are slightly overcosted, but getting that kind of utility on an already reasonable creature is great. Creatures with reasonably costed abilities aren't 2/2s for 2 hybrid mana, that's for sure.

Pretty good, especially considering b/r doesn't have too many options for 2 mana creatures.

The red ability dwarfs the black, unless you're going for Chandra Ablazes' ability with graveyard spells.

Zombie Infestation is just so much better for the same amount. Nevertheless, this card was great in Ravnica block.

A bear with abilities that matches the guild. Discard allow you to use madness/threshold/hellbent abilities while killing small creature. Producing goblins allow you to sacrifice it for other purposes and given enough mana late game you can make more.

But without a doubt the cost to activate is too high. Should've shrink the mana cost by 1 on both abilities. As it is right now it's mediocre.

3.5/5
