Card Evaluations

Winnie the Pooh is yet another ramp card for Sapphire. He looks like he could take the place of Mickey Mouse - True Detective in ramp decks; same cost but better stats and he is inkable. Of course, you don't get the immediate enter the board effect, your ramp is delated a turn. But it is a repeatable effect so it has more long-term value. It's a toss-up which might be better and could just come down to what your 3 -> 4 -> 5 curve looks like.

The other three cards just seem okay. Lawrence is probably the best of the bunch. An overstated 3-drop, you probably are happy to quest with him and then let your opponent have to trade into him while he is at full Strength. If they can ping him first though and reduce his Strength to zero, you are going to be sad. I'm just not a huge fan of cards that give your opponent a potential way to deal with them efficiently. Peter Pan's Dagger wants to go in heavy Evasive decks. As an uninkable item though that only gives a very minor Strength buff, I don't feel it's worth running. And Little John is just a boring vanilla card, albeit in a stat line that so far has not appeared in Emerald. Still quite disappointing for a rare card.
