In real life, this Magic: The Gathering player always rare drafts. Phyrexian Revoker sees play in constructed formats, can stop annoying planeswalkers (Nissa, Worldwaker), artifacts (Haunted Plate Mail), enchantments, lands, and of course creatures. Its low casting cost of two makes it easy to play in just about any deck, however Phryexian Revoker's weak toughness of one makes it an even easier target to destroy.
Speaking of low toughness the entire Magic 2015 limited format is filled with creatures that have a toughness of two or less. That makes Inferno Fist an incredibly strong pick. This aura will both pump your creature and be able to take out an opposing threat. Just think of the carnage Inferno Fist would reap if the old "damage on the stack" rules still existed.
Paragon of Eternal Wilds is strong in a devoted green deck, and Carnivorous Moss-Beast will help you get there late game.
There's one card in this booster pack that leaps out at us though: Juggernaut. This artifact creature is aggressive and can be played in any deck. It'll have to attack every turn, however let's be honest: You planned on doing that anyways. Juggernaut's second line of text isn't entirely irrelevant in Magic 2015 limited either.
