- S: Ridiculous bomb; has a huge effect on the game immediately, and threatens to dominate it if unanswered. (Dream Trawler, Kiora Bests the Sea God, Archon of Sun’s Grace)
- A: Very powerful card, often approaches bomb status, pulls you strongly into its colour. (Drag to the Underworld, Pharika’s Spawn, Shimmerwing Chimera).
- B: Great playable, happy to first pick, pulls you into its colour. (Elspeth’s Nightmare, Voracious Typhon, Iroas’s Blessing)
- C+: Good playable that almost never gets cut. (Favored of Iroas, One with the Stars, Skophos Maze-Warden)
- C: Fine playable, sometimes gets cut. (Loathsome Chimera, Deny the Divine, Mogis’s Favor)
- C-: Mediocre playable or good filler, gets cut around half the time. (Stampede Rider, Scavenging Harpy, Phalanx Tactics)
- D: Medium to bad filler, gets cut a lot. (Sleep of the Dead, Setessan Skirmisher, Hero of the Games)
- F: Mostly to totally unplayable cards. (Field of Ruin, Underworld Breach, Inspire Awe)
