Card of the Day Reviews 


I love the artwork on Darkest Hour! One of my favorites. I want them in foil... please go to our Website and sell me some if you have any in FOIL!!  =)

Hour works well with Light of Day (which makes it so Black creatures can't attack). Obviously, you come up with alternate kill mechanisms. Nice for Casual decks.

Pretty much useless in limited.

Tuesday - Darkest Hour
An interesting card that seems to sell somewhat well. The ability to prevent attacks (Light of Day), prevent damage (CoP), or do any other number of things is interesting, but it doesn't make a good tournament card. Strictly for casual use.
And not for limited, either, as it has nothing to work with.
Constructed: 2
Casual: 4
Limited: 1

Darkest Hour
This card doesn't cantrip.         Oh, doesn't that say enough?  Well, it's
the right cost,  but it doesn't do enough...  it intrinsically requires
another card for this card to have any impact on the game.  And since that
impact generally doesn't outright win the game, it's a two card combo,  with
one component that has no secondary function,  that does not win the game in
very short order.  In limited it's even worse,  you don't even side it in
against banish heavy decks since you're playing black already.

Darkest Hour
My first ever deck I built by myself was bsed on Darkest hour.  Mainboard Cop: Black and black hate, A sphere of grace or two and your laughing.
Major Teroh was often the shining star of the deck, but anything that really picks on black would work.  Unfortunetly, I spent lots of time on the lower tables at FNM's, but that was when I first started.  I could of probably made the deck better.
Constructed rating - 2 (again, this is something you have o build the deck around)
Limited rating - 0 (totally and utterly useless)
First turn darkest hour, second turn cop: black rating - 1000000000 :D


Darkest Hour

There is one combo I know of with this card. Cast Light of Day so that black
creatures cannot attack or block, then you make all creatures black with
Darkest Hour. Its a cool casual combo, which might be fun to try out once or
twice. Pretty much all this is is a dull Shifting Skys
