Weight of Conscious

Outside of a tribal deck, it's a slightly worse Pacifism variant. In one, it's an improved Gaze of Justice. Play it however you want, but it may not find its slot among the copious white Auras that remove creatures from contention in a myriad of ways.

Constructed- 2.5
Casual- 3.5
Limited- 3.5

Weight of Conscience

Generally I prefer my Pacifism effects to make the creature unable to block as well; having to rely on creatures of the same type to get it out of the way for good isn't the best way of dealing with things. Like many of Lorwyn's tribal cards, it's better in limited where you have access to lots of changelings and other cards that seriously care about creature type. I don't think I could say it would never be played in constructed, but there are probably better options.

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

Weight of Conscience

In constructed, just no. There's a lot of more efficient removal out there to make this unplayable.

In limited, this thing is ok, since getting 2 creatures out isn't that hard and 2 mana to essentially kill anything is really good in a world without removal.

Constructed: 1/5
Casual: 1/5
Limited: 3.5/5

Friday's card is Weight of Conscience. This is another enchantment on the lines of Arrest and its buddies, only you can get rid of the enchanted creature for good by tapping two creatures which share a creature type. In any deck that has white and enough creatures of the same type to tap for the effect, Weight of Conscience is a good removal card for white, in my view worthy of a slot next to Oblivion Ring and Crib Swap. They make a great removal card especially for the Kithkins and Merfolk who can generate a ton of tokens, especially the Merfolk.

Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 4/5
