|All the dreams
are inherently card disadvantage, they are all
fairly good in Limited. This one is an obvious
powerhouse and should be considered so. But
playing this color is usually your downfall, only
a 4. It will never see constructed play in a
competitive deck, a 1.
not sure why Inquest would think this card is
good outside of Limited. It's a bomb in Limited,
but it's too little card advantage in
Constructed to make an impact. Why play this
when you can Wrath? 1 card for many is better
than being down one card minimum plus trading
one for one for their creatures.
Rating: It's like that dream where you're in bed
with a beautiful woman, and your alarm goes off
before anything interesting happens.
Most of the dreams
cards are useful. Well, at least they seem
like they are at first glance. I think the
only real problem with them is that many times you
don't have the cards to discard to get the desired
effect that you want or to take full advantage of
Limited yields the same problems. However,
Vengeful dreams is better in limited, because of
the lack of removal sometimes. It's also
good because you end up with a higher percentage
of land that you can get rid of.
Ok, but not
quite ok enough (too situational) to justify the
loss of simple card advantage. Adjusted for impact
on the game, there's no loss in advantage, but
still you'll be staring at a Vengeful Dreams in
your hand too long for me to feel comfortable
putting it in a deck. 2.5
Now, this is a
card that I am trying very hard to use, even in
the place of Wrath of God. In a control heavy
environment, where you just have to get rid of 1-2
creatures versus 5-6+, this card in my opinion is
better than Wrath of God. It has a lower casting
cost, and all you need is 1-2 spare lands in hand.
It is also an instant, allowing you to fight the
battle on their turn.
In limited, even with the
18-20 creatures in a deck, there are usually only
1-3 game breakers that you really have to deal
with. And eventually plenty of land to fuel it.
A card that
deserves a lot better a placing than 8th. I mean,
give me a break, this card wrecks in both
constructed and limited. It helps reach Threshold,
which makes white a little more relevant in many
decks. This is perhaps the best white card in the
set for both constructed and limited, and I give
it a 5 in constructed. I hurts your card
advantage, but it gives you an effect that is
almost unbelievable for this 4 to 8 deck creature
format (Tog, Enforcer, and Tempo-Threshold
In limited, it is a first
pick, hands down. Don't argue with me, I know what
I'm talking about. It's mass destruction of
creatures, and best of all, only your opponent's
THIS CARD IS INSANE IN
LIMITED, AND I WILL HUNT DOWN ANY PERSON WHO
PASSES IT IN DRAFT.
I give it a 5 in limited.
You have to be nuts or not know truely how to play
to give it a rating lower than that.
