Card of the Day Reviews

"Playing you was like a nightmare," is what your
opponents will say when you
play this Arcane discard spell. Well, maybe they
will and maybe they won't, but I believe you
will not be disappointed in the value of making
your opponent discard two cards in limited play,
particularly in the age of Saviors of Kamigawa,
when "hand size matters." In constructed play,
there are better cards to make your opponent
discard, unless you are particularly interested
in Arcane spells.
This is a great kamigawa card, by great i mean a
great discard card.
You can control the hand either when you have
three mana or dark ritual
it. What's even better is that you can play
multi-color easier then like
distress. With having to only one black mana and
two generic, it makes it
more playable in a game. For mono-black decks,
it's still good for a block
deck or just overall to control an opponets
hand. Finally, I know i'm the
one to say how easy it is to get cards and all.
But, it's easy to get a hold of
more and likely, you'll get one if you buy a
pack of Champions of Kamigawa.
Their are better discard cards i know but for
limited, kamigawa play, i would say
one of the best discard cards.
As an instant, Waking Nightmare could actually
see a lot of play. As a sorcery, it isn't as
good, but still sees some interest. In limited,
Nightmare is a nice filler card for Black, but
something that can easily be cut for something
better. Nicer for a casual theme deck.
