This is a good card. It's got a solid power to cost ratio (4/4 for 4 mana). It's also got a useful ability. This card can keep your opponent from stealing your cards for their benefit. There are even a couple of deck floating around in Standard that would dislike this card. It's a neat sideboard card, but it can't really hurt to have this guy in the deck to start with. He's a pretty solid fighter.

Use it to combat Herald of Leshrac. Or maybe WITH Herald of Leshrac, ensuring your opponent will have enough lands for you to pay the upkeep cost for several more turns than otherwise. But if Herald isn't on the table, this ability is useless. Luckily, it's still a 4/4 for 4 mana, so it'll always be useful at least to swing for 4.

Constructed- 3
Casual- 3.5
Limited- 3.7

If only we had had this last Standard season. Eminent Domain would have just been destroyed. But alas, it was not to be. Now this is just another 4/4 for 4, which is actually below par in Stardard with the likes of Loxodon Hierarch running about.

In casual, why would you even run this? Just play Brand.
In limited, this really shines. It is a 4/4, it is cheap, and it loves surging might. Also, it eats Krovikan Whispers for breakfast.

Constructed- 2/5
Casual- 1.5/5
Limited- 3/5
