Ember Beast

Ember Beast
Creature - Beast (Common)
Ember Beast can't attack or block alone.
3/4
The only livestock that will survive for long in the Smelting District, ember beasts serve many functions - none of them willingly.

Another random old reprint! ô.o
I really like it, you just need to maintain some tokens.
I play for fun
It's a pretty fitting reprint with Battalion around.

I like that with the art this time they bothered to show you why it can't attack or block alone.  Now I get it.  For some reason that makes me happy inside.
I wonder if the ember beast unwillingly serves as many functions as a rakdos keyrune.

Or like, if they serve any similar functions.
Should've been a 4/4
Neat, great with Battalion.

GILBIC because Mogg Flunkies



Hey now, I run 4 flunkies in my hyper-aggresive and dirt-cheap RDW deck and they have proven surprising resilient.  To the point where they often are the first to eat up removal (Hilarious, really, when you know that they are the last thing you want to remove when there are two creatures on the board, but I don't argue).  Has either won me or placed me in the upper 2 at the local FNM, even against a fully loaded Thragtusk build. 

It's not good, but it's not *that* bad.

This however is pretty bad.  I agree with whoever said it should have been a 4/4.  At that it would have been a nice common to include.  At the current, it's mostly filler for limited, and for constructed its worthless.  A Flunkies for 1 more should really just be a straight 3/4, and I don't really see much the point for reprinting it other than some weird forced "interaction" with Battallion, where its only interaction with the ability is the fact that it literally does nothing if you don't attack with other creatures.

Jackal Familiar would have been a better reprint in the common slot.

No, no, "battalion" is the trial form of the Ravnican word for "attack".
