Todays RtR card to rate is...

Soulsworn Spirit


5.0: First pick no matter what.  I will always play this card.
4.5: Splashable and first pick worthy.
4.0: First pick pack 1.
3.5: Early pick though not always a first pick.
3.0: Solid early/mid pick.
2.5: Solid pick in color.
2.0: Should generally make the deck if in this color.
1.5: Decent filler.
1.0: 23rd card if you have to.
0.5: This card will sometimes be sideboarded in.
0.0: I will never put this card into my deck (main deck or after sideboarding).

This guy is pretty legit.  Detain has proven to be a really good mechanic and when you through that onto a Phantom Warrior it's pretty sweet.  Granted this guy is 4 mana but he's easy to splash.  His 1 toughness is a downfall but you'll still generally always play him.


I'll go with 3.0

I've found the detain aspect of this card underwhelming, and have occassionally been burned by the 1 toughness aspect, but just having 2 unblockable damage every turn can swing a lot of games in your favor. He's also fun with Civic Saber and Knightly Valor.

Ive never had the luck to play this card but hes cost me multiple games. I recognie the threat he poses when.paired with an buff.
2.5 - 3.0

I've had the detain be pretty good in a tempo/fliers deck. He basically counts as another flier and gets to slow them down a bit for the turn he comes into play. 
3-3.5. I will pick this early and splash it, because it's really good.
