 Heart of Light

It's Valentine's Day, so what better card than Heart of Light for today?
While not the greatest card in Constructed, this card is a pretty good pick for limited. It can be used to nullify a big problem creature on your opponents side, or, in some desperate cases, turn one of your creatures into an invincible blocker to hold off something on your opponents side.

And the girl on the card is pretty in a "kick your butt" sort of way.

Heart of Light - Monday

Hrm. There isn't a lot to say about this card. It's just not that great. In limited play this card has a little bit of versatility, but outside of that, it's not so hot. Honestly, we had this card before. It was called Gaseous Form and it wasn't that great then. And now it's in a color that has the likes of Arrest, Pacifism, and Shackles...all of which are superior in my eyes.

Constructed: 2

Heart of Light --

I'm not sure who picked the cards this week, but cute pick for Valentine's Day. To be honest, Heart of Light just isn't good enough to make a deck you build at home, be it constructed or casual. There are an enormous number of better options for containing a creature, and a lot of them do it more effectively.

The story changes a bit once you look at limited. As I have preached multiple times, any removal is good removal. This isn't quite removal, but it takes a creature out of the game to a degree, so you might as well run it. I wouldn't suggest first-picking this card, but it can't hurt to scoop it a bit later in the draft.
