Show

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.

2.5-3

Discuss! 
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.
3.0

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.
