flying creature to take its place on the board. Compare that to Suntail Hawk who is flying from the gate, but once it dies you have nothing to automatically take its place. You would have to cast another creature (if you had it in your hand.) When constructing a deck its best to think about which ability will benefit you most. Sometimes you may find that two different cards have powerful abilities, but one would actually work better for your deck. For example, let's say you're building a red and green deck and are choosing between adding Striking Sliver or Elvish Mystic. Both creatures cost one mana to cast and have a 1/1 power/toughness. Striking Silver has this added ability: silver creatures you control have first strike (they deal combat damage before creatures without first strike.)
Elvish Mystic has this added ability: tap it to add one green mana to your mana pool. When comparing these two cards it may be hard to figure out which one would work best in your deck because both have strong abilities. However, if the deck you are constructing does not include a lot of silver
creatures, then it would be pointless to add Striking Silver to it. The ability will not be utilized. If that is the case, then Elvish Mystic would provide a greater advantage because it helps accelerate your mana pool and allows you to cast more cards faster. Before adding a creature card to your deck you need to compare it to other cards with the same mana cost. You may find that a card you once considered is actually not the best choice for your deck based on its “theme.” A topic we will cover in more detail in a later chapter.
