Stoic Ephemera

And the trend continues. This card is bad as well. White has better cards that stay in play that you can use. Sure, it might take out an attacker, but why bother. There are other spells that can do that more efficiently. I guess it would be nice if you had a way to repeatedly bounce it, but that makes it a bit unfit for constructed play.

Stoic Ephemera - This card seems okay. But it's really just not. It's the kind of card that your opponent can easily play around, and that's a bad thing. It has the potential to hold off a big attacker, but it's just going to go to waste most of the time. On the other hand, if you happen to draft a gargoyle that will let it attack, there's no reason not to play it. Don't count on that happening very often though. This card is no Wall of Swords or Sunweb, that's for sure. Still, it's a clever idea.

Stoic Ephemera

A big 5/5 Flyer that can't attack, and can only block once. =/ It would be much better with Rolling Stones, though. =) In limited, a sideboard possibility against certain problem builds. Not really for casual unless you're going to make an attacking wall deck.

Remember Monday's card? Well, this is the other 5/5 for 3 mana. And this one could actually participate in combat.....once. It basically says, destroy target creature that your opponent chooses to attack into it, since that's what's gonna happen: your opponent will get tired of it, attack with creatures he can afford to lose, and you'll get to pick one and kill it. Then this dies. But in the meantime, it does dissuade attacks fairly well. I don't particularly want to hide behind it, especially when Ghostly Prison costs the same. But I can see where it would come in handy.
