Card of the Week

Each Wednesday, I will make a Card of the Week post. This card will be from Standard. I will discuss the card's merit, tell the price from Planeswalker's Library, and give it a rating from 1 to 10.
Instigator GangWildblood Pack
This week's card is the very first flip card and I don't know how I should discuss it. I think I will discuss both sides separately, then give it a rating based on both sides.

Instigator Gang: This card by itself would be great in Battalion decks. It comes into the battlefield quickly and gives attacking creatures +1/+0. On your first turn, you can play a plains and Boros Elite, then play a mountain and Wojek Halberdiers. Third turn, you play a Mountain and Warmind Infantry. During your fourth turn, you put down a plains and Instigator Gang and attack with Boros Elite, Wojek Halberdiers, and Warmind Infantry. If your opponent doesn't block, you will deal 13 damage to your opponent.

Wildblood Pack: To continue on my made up match, let's say your opponent casts a spell and Instigator Gang does not transform and you play a mountain. After the combat phase, you cast Hellraiser Goblin. Then, your opponent does not cast a spell and Instigator Gang transforms. It's your turn now and you play a plains and Aurelia, the Warleader. Because you have Hellraiser Goblin, all creatures you control have haste and you attack with everything. Your opponent takes 37 damage, so all your creatures can attack again and deal another 37 damage to your opponent. This is all assuming your opponent has no creatures and can gain enough life to let you attack a second time on turn 6. By the way, the cost on Planeswalker's Library is $1.25

Rating: 10 out of 10
