Card of the Day Reviews 


I dunno - it seems like it could be pretty decent in certain decks.  More versatile than rescue in Stasis decks, though those are gone from Extended now.  I have a feeling this card will see more extended play by blue draw-go decks.  I hate to say this is a great card, but it might be pretty decent.  

In limited, it's temp removal when you need it.  It works.

Constructed: 3.5
Limited: 4
Current Price: $.70

Judge Bill

A decent bounce spell. I haven't tested the new type 2 at all, so take whatever I say with a grain of salt. I don't think you'd want to be casting this, as most if the time they'd just bounce a Wurm.
In limited, it goes for tempo.
Constructed: 3
Limited: 3


I haven't really out this to use yet, but I think it may be one of those cards that is really good early as it gives some tempo advantage and potentially some mana advantage. However it's utility declines quite a bit later in the game. It can still bounce creatures with annoying enchantments and tokens but it may not really hurt your opponent to fire it back at you when he has plenty of land. Overall I think it is a playable card in both formats, a solid but not amazing choice.
Constructed 3
Limited 3.5


Either your opponent loses a permanent or you both lose a permanent but he loses a land. Can also be used on your own permanents to bring a load of them back to your hand. A 3.5 in constructed.

In limited, its either temporary permanent removal or land destruction, both of whick are pretty good in this format. 4 in limited.


This just seems to be an over glorifed bounce spell.  I don't many opponents wanting to send this card back at you unless it is either REALLY late int he game, or you have some other permanent they feel the need to deal with immediately.

In limited, I would pass on it and try to get it on a late pick if I really wanted it.

Constructed: 2
Limited: 2
