Blood Clock
This is an intersting card, but not one that instantly thrilled me. I probably initially looked past this card because, when a new set comes out, I always think about limited play first, and this card has no real value in limited play. However, this card offers two interesting ideas for constructed. It's interesting that your mono-blue control opponent would have to do what he doesn't want to do, return one of his permanents to his hand each turn. Mono blue control players don't have much in play except for

untapped Islands and they usually don't like to pick those up. This card gives you a neat way to return a creature to your hand each turn that might have an interesting coming-into-play effect.



Blood Clock


Tic Tic Tic...Blood Clock is useful to decks that want to play and avoid another nasty "During your upkeep" or "During each upkeep" effect. You use Blood Clock to return that permanent to your hand to avoid its effect.


It does cost 4, so it would best be utilized by control decks.  In limited, it's not generally going to be useful.  In casual, it's something to use if you have the need for its ability.


Constructed - 2.5

Casual - 3

Limited - 1.5
