Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
of Mephistopheles - Use it with Howling Mine and
in multiples, and you can get a soft lock on your
opponent. Either assure that you will have more
cards than your opponent, or get them to mill more
than you. Never actually seen it in action...just
heard of the combo. Anyhow, it's pretty old
school. Useless in limited.
and Mind's Eye actually work together, as Chains
(Oracle wording) exempts the first card draw by
a player in any draw step.
Now that I've gotten
that out of my system, this is nasty in
multiples. If you have control of the board,
you'll keep it, and deck your opponent quite
fast, as their hand will quickly deplete until
they (and you) are forced to start milling.
Outside of its deck though, it is quite weak.
This is a old
combo card, however it has never done anything
insanely amazing to date really, but its
odd power isn't to be denied.
In limited, you
probably don'y play this.
Mephistopheles has always been an interesting card
but one that I view as too difficult to take
Constructed - Never
a favorite, the card text hurts my head - 2.00
Limited - Very few
ways to take advantage of the card in this format
God! Whats with the
cards this week? I have no idea waht this card
does. I try and read it,and my head goes all
funny. Wait, i'll try again.
Ok, so basically,
except fro the first card you draw, any card you
draw is replaced by you sdiscarding a card..and
if you have no cards in your hand, you mill for
Well obviously it
has some sort of combo in mind, but it just
hurts trying to work out this card, let alone
what can be done with it!
As such, I cant give

Now this is an awsome card. I remember looking at
this card a long time ago,
but never read it because it had to many words : p
I dont do that anymore
though. More of a sideboard card, since vs a lot
of decks that dont have
card draw is useless. Replacing their draw with
discard is very very nice.
