Card of the Day Reviews
Time Pro Tour
This is a constructed card. In limited, you
won't have multiple copies of very many
creatures, certainly not enough to make this
card really good for your deck. (...unless you
get Bloodbond March extremely late in a draft,
which could easily happen) In constructed, all
sorts of strategies could include this
enchantment, although its black/green mana cost
relegates it to only a few popular constructed
deck archetypes I can think off, notably The
Rock in Extended. Overall, I'd have to say this
card is generally poor, costing four mana in two
different colors to provide an ability that your
opponent gets to use as well. Not loving it.

I didn't like the little Myr guy that had this
ability, so I'm definitely not going to like an
enchantment that gives that ability to ALL
creatures in play. That's right, your opponent's
creatures as well. Now, for creatures with come
into play effects, like Eternal Witness and
Nakrataal, this could be an interesting card.
However, your opponent would be using it too and
that could make things scary. I'd pass on this
card right now.
Sideboard card! OK, now that that is out of the
way, I can explain why. You usually don't want
to give your opponent a card that works just as
well for him or her as it does for you. If you
are playing G/B using Bloodbond March, do you
really want to run into a player who is running
R/W or G/W and has just as big or scary
creatures as you do?
However, it would be nice to see this card hit
play against anything remotely resembling a
control deck. Note, the card reads "whenever a
creature spell is played", not "whenever a
creature comes into play", meaning it doesn't
matter if that creature spell is countered or
Think of the fun you could have with this card
against the multitude of mill decks roaming
about right now.

An interesting idea that means to be synergetic
with concepts of the new set, especially Dredge.
And there is some talk of Dredge decks already
circulating. So, March could conceivably find
its way into the scene.
In limited play, its uses are, well, limited. In
sealed deck, you can pretty much forget it, as
you won't have enough duplicate creatures to
make it worth it. In draft, there is a bit more
of a chance, but not much, really. Just skip
this thing. In casual, if it can find a niche,
this could be a fun card to build around.

Well im back after a little vacation to what
seems like a poor printed card to me. I could
possibly see this card work in casual, but i
hardly find it useful.
Mabey on cards that rely on more then one copy
of themselves to make a good combo, or a deck
surrounded by one card. Disgusting card to me,
and making it global or allowing other players
to use the effects as well doesn't really thrill
