Ward of Bones

This is one of those cards that screams "I know there's combos with it, so why can't I think of any?"  The only thing I can think of is combing it with Wrath and an indestructible creature, so that each opponent will only be able to play at most two creatures at any one time.  And also no enchantments in your deck, so nobody can play a second one, I guess.  Maybe add in repeatable bounce, so your opponent can't play out their hand and has to discard.

Constructed- 2.5

Casual- 2.5

Ward of Bones

Whenever something costs 6 it better be the game winning card.  Often you must have a way to keep it out quick.  Follow this up with Claws of Gix on the next turn and you might have something.  Fun for the casual table but not much else.  However, someone might break this...time will tell.

Monday Aug. 4

Ward of Bones


Constructed: Does not look to exciting for any of the tournament formats right at this moment.


Casual: Multi-player this cards screams to be played. Work it with something that causes the world to blow up and than play it. Might try to use it in my Sway deck.


Limited: It is okay, but it cost six mana. So by the time it comes out they are already set up with their mana base. And unless they have a really expensive bomb it won't matter. Not a high pick for draft or sealed deck.


Overall a good card for the casual or multi-player formats.

Aethereal Monday - Ward of Bones

Now this card I don't know what to do with. I'm sure there's some funky broken combo with it that I'm not seeing. What I do see is a card that costs six mana and really only does something if you're behind in board position somehow, and doesn't help you get ahead. So, I don't see any point in using this in constructed. In casual, though, I could see this getting played in multiplayer, although you'll likely find yourself dead after playing it.

In limited, uh, no.
