These cards are rated, not just on their individual power, but on how they will see play in the meta in the next 3 month period of competitive play:

1 Star: Unplayable, or insignificant amount of play

2 Star: Will see play for some time but ultimately will become unpopular

3 Star:
In a tier 3 deck, or occasional tech choice

4 Star: In a tier 2 deck, or a defining aspect of a tier 3 deck, or in multiple of the tier 3 decks

5 Star: Will see play in tier 1 decks, or a defining aspect of a tier 2 deck, or in wide variety of competitive decks

Jono - I think this card is the crux of how Pandora will function moving forward. You either sacrifice over these 3 golems for the big 2000/2000 guy, and/or Judgment. Golems are just a pile of stats and this is too fragile of a line of play. I'll rate 3 star as it is in a tier 3 deck.

Steven - 1 Star

Archie - ☆ - aye, this is bad.

Adam - 1 Star - i can only see this getting played if you are running a mono white and hoping those sol's are hitting the field..

Ronan - 3 stars, I would definetely play this in a pandora tempo deck, sets you up nicely for a judgment the next turn. Weak to Dawn of the earth aswell.

Jono - A kill-all for 5 may see some play, but ultimately this is too slow for the meta. 2 Star

Archie - ☆☆☆ - Good card for it's color due to white not having any other board wipes in rotation. Gives a good tech option to decks that aren't running red or black.

Steven - 2 Stars - Good field wipe for any non Zoo deck running white. Wont see much play due to being far to slow.

Adam - 2 star - not bad for a field wipe, by the time you cast this the game will be almost dead and done.. to slow but can see it in some decks..

Ronan - 2 stars - 5 cost is just too slow.

Jono - Gaining a particular gem shouldn't require it's own card, nor the opportunity cost of having this card in your hand and having to play it. It may see play along side White Raven as Panda's draw mechanic but that's about it. 2 Star

Steven - 2 Star - draw + gem with floating mana. will see play in the starter deck only.

Archie - ☆☆ - Quickcast draw is always nice. Won't see play outside light starter deck.

Adam - 2 star - only reson why this gets a 2 star is the quickcast draw, Gem gain is a somewhat a bonus if you time it with ' Diamond, The one-eyed '

Ronan - 2 stars - May see play in a turbo panda deck, but you should have to run this card specifically to get gems. While you pay one mana for this, your opponent plays tama and sacs it for a griphon.

Jono - 600 / 600 for 2 is vanilla, and gaining a gem when it leaves is lower value than gaining upon entry. There are better gem generators and this will not make the cut in a gem oriented deck. 1 Star

Steven - 2 Star - Could see play in the gem decks and trades with other 2 drops.

Archie - - Only upside for this card is that it can't be stopped by Abdul.

Adam - 1 Star - its a shame the card effect is the let down here, A 600/600 body which could see some play in some decks..


Ronan - 1 Star - Basic 600/600 body for two, effect is very bad. You dont want to be relying on stuff dying to enable your deck.

Jono - This card will see play in a greedy combo oriented deck, chaining Acrobatic Twins into this card for an incredible tempo play. I think this card could see some competitive play. 4 Star - Defining aspect of a tier 3 deck.

Steven - 2 Star - Could lead to some tempo plays if this deck survives that long.

Archie - ☆☆☆ - This paired with Shin-Shin&Rei-Rei, Acrobatic Twins could lead to a huge field while still floating mana. Essentially a free resonator if it resolves. Not bad, but it's dead card until turn 4.

Adam - 2 Star - Being a 4 drop 800/800 with the card effect somewhat ok but as meta wise its slow and doesnt provide any pressure, Also leaves you open for severing winds etc, if you attempt to play another card ...

Ronan - 3 Stars - will see play in a cheeky panda combo deck where you combo off as many twins as possible then finish with emerald for a net loss of 1 will. Unfortunately the panda combo has too many answers and is too slow to see competetive play.
