Judge Bill

A strong enchantment that helps blue decks deal with creatures. This give most players a choice in the early game of attacking or casting more creatures. This, in turn, gives blue decks the chance to get their footing. A very strong card.
In limited, it is a little less strong, but it still helps against alpha strikes. Depending on the deck, I might or might not play it.
Constructed: 3.5
Limited: 2.5


The ability to use this card to hold off aggro decks has kept many a control deck ticking.  One is bad, two is brutal, 3 is almost game over.  An incredible card that just smashed the face of an aggro deck.  Use it with any form of mana deprivation and you have an ugly combo.

In limited, you might need more than 1 to make it good.  I would not overly recommend it in an environment where extra mana is common

Constructed: 4.5
Limited: 2.5


I always thought Propoganda was better than it actually is. 2 mana per creature isn't going to stop much so unless you have a way to deny your opponent of mana (like land destruction, squirrel/opposition...) propoganda won't help a lot. A 2 in constructed.

This card taxes you for attacking as well so there simply isn't a real use for it in limited unless you're relly strugling for things to put in the sideboard. A 1 in limited.

Propaganda has always been a fun card to me. It isn't bad for holding off aggressive decks and is relatively cheap for what it does. It's better in limited since there's such a huge reliance on creatures there. Plus, blue has evasion creatures that can get over their guys that aren't attacking. In constructed I'd rather play Powder Keg or Nevinyrral's Disk to hold off attackers.


I love this card.  It's good and bad.  It's limited in its use.  however, when it IS being used, it is really good.  It's a decent constructed card.

If you are into blue, you definitely take it in limited.  There is also the chance that there could be two in your draft since it is uncommon, which could be really fun!

Limited: 4

    Broken blue. This card (especially in multiples) can shut down most creature decks, especially the Chihuahua decks. Use this and Meekstone together, and they'll never do you any serious damage. (Or, better yet, don't, I hate blue.)

I have always been a fan of this card. Preventing a lot of attack damage for a reasonable cost makes playing this viable in most properly designed blue decks. In limited it is pretty narrow.
Constructed 2.5
Limited 1.5
