Grave Consequences appears to be one of the unexpected stars of Judgement that has not been approached. Possibly devastating to Tog players and decks that need threshold to be 'good', the fact that its easy to cast, is an instant, and draws you a card. A cheap cantrip can be cycled early and can be fairly naughty later in the game. In Limited where decks are pretty much guaranteed to either need to use flashback cards or threshold cards, you'll probably do at least 2 or 3 with this, maybe up to 7. For B1, that's a bargain. A 2.5 in Limited and Constructed.

Judge Bill

I can't see this making much of a splash in either limited or constructed. The only place this would be good is against a threshold deck, and even then, they may just keep 7 there and take 7.

Constructed: 1.1
Limited: 1


I think the jury is still out on how good this is. The fact that it's an instant for 1B and a cantrip makes me like it. I think the effect is solid if your deck doesn't worry about threshold and their's does. I also like the way it wrecks Tog and Quiet Speculation. So I think the card is solid.
Constructed- 3
Limited- 3


I'll be honest here.  I haven't even considered playing this card.  I feel as though there is some potential here.   I'm just not sure how I would go about using it.  I have to say that this is the first time I don't really feel right giving advice on a card.

I think for now it just gets a medium to poor rating, mainly because from what I can tell about it, you won't be using it often, except in specific situations.

Constructed: 2.6
Limited: 2.5


Grave Consequences

This is one of those cards that makes a really interesting sideboard card, but isn't good in a lot of situations because it doesn't alway do what you want it to do. If you're behind in life, your opponent can sometimes afford to just let your spell do whatever.

Limited: 1
Constructed: 2
