Parallax Wave was a great card in a lot of decks. The ability to take creatures off the board for a couple of turns helped the control decks set up their control without losing too much life. If this were in the environment today, it would be AMAZING, considering the number of token creatures out there. As it was, this found a home in a lot of decks. When Extended rotates in November, we might just see this card getting some play again.
In limited, this isn't as good, as taking the creatures off the board usually didn't do much except for allowing an Alpha strike. You want real removal, not just temporary removal.
Constructed: 3.6
Limited: 2.1



You know, I was never a fan of this card.  That by no means is saying it wasn't good.  I just did not like it much.  It was a fragile effect that needed a fast result to be good.  It certainly had it place in constructed, though.

In limited, it's a no brainer.  Being able to wipe out 5 critters for one turn and serve wins games.  Being able to wipe out 4 for 2 turns or 3 for 3 turns can have the same effect

Constructed - 4
Limited - 5
Current Price - $2.45


This card was definitely a headache to deal with in constructed.  It can even be used in agressive decks to remove blockers for one or two attack phases.

I think this card is just as good in limited.  Anything that can break a stalemate, or even save your creatures is a great card to have on your side in limited environments.

Constructed: 3.6
Limited: 3.7


The wave is a good, good card. Close to being broken, but not quite.
Playable in every format, works great in white weenie or in Replenish decks.

Constructed: 4
Limited: 5


limited ****
constructed ****

One of the defining cards of MBC.  I know it doesn't seem true but White was actually really good just a short while ago!  It sure was fun playing with cards like this, Rebels, Mageta, Story Circle, Blinding Angel, etc.  Now we get Eager Cadet!  Yeah buddy!!


This is the best Parallax Card bar none, finding 4 copies of itself into
Replenish decks, Rebel decks, and a first pick in any limited environment. 
Imagine it today in a field of tokens, creatures that recieve +1/+1 tokens,
etc.  A 4.5 in Constructed, a 5 in Limited.
