This is a very situational and dangerous to
operate Nevinyrral's Disk (for you new kids,
think Oblivion Stone) that only black/green
players can really control. In constructed, this
card is also good for blue/white control players
who don't play permanents anyway. In limited,
you draft this card pretty high and always play
it, but you only LOVE it if you are playing
black/green. The rest of the time, this clunky
board clearer is strictly a defensive card.

There always seems to be some hugely destructive
spell. I'm not sure if WotC R&D feels that there
needs to be one of these in every block or what,
but here's another one. This one is useable.
This one is neat, because you can have a bit
more control over when it blows up. I'm not
terrible excited by it. I do find it interesting
that it required both black and green in it's
activation. You can definitely expect to see a
few of these in tournament play, so be aware
that it'll be out there.
I'm intrigued by this card. It could potentially
be really good, especially if you are running
Green and Black to help move it along. However,
it does take a bit of time for it to go off,
meaning you have to plan in advance to make
effective use of it. I won't say that the
casting cost is too high, but if it was cheaper,
you could at least have the chance to blow it up
on the turn you play it.
I'm going to give Plague Boiler a slightly low
rating, acknowledging that I could be completely
wrong about this card.

A nice reset button for any color,
especially Black/Green to use. While
White and Red usually corners the
market best for board clearing,
Plague Boiler gives the ability for
widespread use, and at a low cost.
The Oblivion Stone of the new block.
