Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
Tap it down and keep it there. Amber Prison is
kind of a fun card, and you can always change it's
target if something bigger and better comes along.
A little expensive at 4 mana, but as I said, more
for the fun deck anyhow. Btw... if you are
interested in this card, I believe it was also
printed in 6th Edition.
A great play in limited.
Tapping your opponent's biggest threat in an
environment where there isn't a lot of artifact
removal is always a good thing.
A permanent Icy Manipulator. By paying 4 mana,
and keeping this tapped, you can keep something
else tapped. Unfortunately, Icy is a lot better
most times, as even though the thing keeps
untapping, so does Icy. Since they both aren't
in a format the other isn't (except block
constructed), I would never use this.
In limited, this is a nice thing to have though,
as the Icy effect can help you deal with their
This card is basically a "fun" card to play with,
with little to no
practical game play use. I used to play it YEARS
ago as a poor man's Icy
Manipulater (when I mean poor, I mean REAL poor)
it has an interesting way
of locking up one of your opponents best cards,
but its not really all that
In limited, could be usefull. Someone pulls a big
fattie that could crush
you in 2 turns, its nice to tap it forever...but
then again, A Fattie in
return would be a better choice.
An expensive Icy at worst, I like the versatility
of this card. It gives
some colors a little backing for what they
wouldn't otherwise have- like
creature kill in green. But it is admittedly a
bit slow. Still quite good
in limited, with potential occasional type two
constructed - 3
limited - 3.2
