Coordinated Barrage

This one feels like a white Skred for the combat step. Giant decks won't likely get to take advantage, but Merfolk, Soldiers, and Kithkin decks will play it, and for them it basically is a Skred. Maybe even Wizards will get into the act. Hey, any instant for one mana that can deal upwards of 4 damage is worth looking at.

Constructed- 4
Casual- 4
Limited- 2.7

Coordinated Barrage

With enough creatures in play, this can take out almost anything; unfortunately, having enough creatures in play to remove the sorts of things white decks can't remove with other spells usually means you're about to win anyway or you're about to be on the wrong side of a 6-for-1 Pyroclasm. It's a pretty good trick in limited - just be careful, as there are a surprising number of creatures in Lorwyn and Morningtide with five to seven toughness.

Constructed: 1/5
Casual: 3/5
Limited: 2/5

#1 Magic Noob in Canada since 2002
Coordinated Barrage

In constructed, this is like Skred, and Skred only sees some play. Skred is better than this since it hits anything, so that means this won't see play in a viable deck.

In limited, this is really good since it pretty much kills anything for 1 mana.

Constructed: 1/5
Limited: 2/5
Limited: 3.5/5

Tuesday's card is Coordinated Barrage. For one mana, you can deal damage to a creature or player equal to the amount of permanents of a chosen type. While not ideal early in the game when you may only have one or two creatures, this can take down some big monsters. In the right deck, this could possibly kill Tarmogoyf, Countryside Crusher or anything. It's nice removal for any tribal deck that is white or a white hybrid.

v0rac10u5 Coordinated Barrage

Absolutely terrible in constructed. The only deck this could possibly fit into would be Kithkin, and that deck already has Temporal Isolation and Oblivion Ring. In limited, it will make the cut more often then not.

- Constructed: 1
- Casual: 2
- Limited: 3
