Card of the Day Reviews
* Game Store Owner
I hate cards like this. They swing the game too
much on one turn. They make the game "un-fun."
It basically can act as a poor man's time walk.
You can cripple your opponent before they have a
chance to really play anything on their turn.
Sure they get to go through the motions of their
turn, but what good is that? Truth be told, if
they don't have any useful creatures or
artifacts out when you cast this, it is almost a
Mana Short --
While this card was around, it was often
ignored, but as it turned out, it is an
extremely valuable tool against anything that
vaguely resembles control. Afraid of counters?
Mana Short at end of turn. Worried that your
opponent will have a few good drops on his turn?
Mana Short during the upkeep. See your opponent
setting up a combo? Mana Short in the middle of
it. See Paul getting carried away with examples?
Mana Short in mid-paragraph.
In limited, this card seems acceptable, though
not great. You can at least deny your opponent
his or her ability to cast spells by playing it
during their upkeep.
Constructed Rating: 3.0
Casual Rating: 2.5
Limited Rating: 2.5
A control card made to frustrate your opponent.
If you're into that sort of thing, you can use
control to try to push other players out of
Magic. Just frustrate the hell outta them.
Though they may find a way to strike back,
Constructed - 3
Casual - 3
Limited - 2.5
Rare- 7th edition
hey everyone today we have the turn 3 time walk,
sure it isn't quite a time walk, but if you play
it vs. a creatureless deck, or early enough to
where it will matter, then you essentially got a
time walk. you just got to make sure you play it
on their upkeep.
besides that the card is pretty much useless
constructed- 4/5 probably a little more than it
limited- 3/5 again probably more than it should
be, but a time walk is always good
casual- 3/5 its different and casual likes that,
but its nothing special
final thought- nothing amazing, even though its
effect is a little odd
