Card of the Day Reviews
What? What is this doing here? This card is way
too good to be featured this week! Mirror
Universe used to be more powerful when the game
only checked for player death at end of each
phase, instead of players immediately losing at
zero life like they do now. As it is, Mirror
Universe is definitely a fun trick. By today’s
standards, it may actually not be good enough,
though. In Vintage and Legacy, the formats are
too fast to really make use of this card’s
power. On the plus side, this card is
illustrated by one of my all time favorite Magic
artists, Phil Foglio! But sadly, that doesn’t
make it much better. As for limited play, see my
comments earlier in the week about playing
limited with Arabian Nights.
Constructed – 3
Casual – 3.5

Wow, Mirror Universe is one of those cards that
can do what i like to call a "BS comeback". It
can pull you out of that losing hand and put
right in the winner's circle...square....
whatever you basically are winning at the
The downside is that the card is very expensive,
not Black Lotus Expensive, but let's say i don't
to fork out $50.00 for a card. Making it an
artifact makes it even more dangerous, because
you can put it with cards like Disciple of the
or Ritual of Restoration. Maby even combine in
Form of the Dragon?
Overall, Mirror Universe is a good control card.
The expense of it is the only thing holding me
but what would you expect from an artifact with
a really good effect that came from legends.
