Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
Pacifism, while it does not really see any
constructed play, serious or casual, is an amazing
add to any white build in limited. I'd seriously
consider splashing white for it if I had any mana
support. While Arrest out of Mirrodin often turns
out to be more versatile, Pacifism still is an
include when playing 8th limited.
Wednesday - Pacifism
An enchantment. That
disables creatures. No chance in Hades that
you'll find me playing this in ANY constructed
In limited, it's
control, and since the enchantment removal isn't
as plentiful, I'd play it.
I think a lot of people overlook this card in
constructed... all the white
weenie decks that've been popping up recently and
have wing shards instead
of this are in error, imho. Wing shards is
defensive, this card is offensive. In limited,
it's of course good, one of white's most
straightforward pieces of removal.
A limited only card that's a great removal card.
Just be careful they don't piety charm it off
during combat or something.
I collect these, the Tempest one. I just love that
artwork, and the 8th
edition is pretty funny. This is the little bro of
Arrest, and you just have
to decide which one you like better. I prefer this
over Arrest just because
it only costs 1W instead of 2W, which I feel is a
very big difference.

About the only good
thing about Pacifism (at least 8th and Mirage) is
the art. Who doesn't enjoy seeing a hippie
skeleton? Anyway, I think this card is useless and
it's outshined by Arrest. I hate these types of
cards because you're better off destroying the
creature.. However, in limited where creatures
with useful activated abilities are few, and
enchantment destruction is limited to Demystify
and Naturalize, Pacifism shines as a spot remover.
