And the multicolored charms from Invasion
return. This is unquestionably the best of the
charms. For three mana, you get to either blast
a problematic artifact, deal with a problematic
creature, or counter their counterspell or other
threat. This card will no doubt see a lot of
play in control decks for the next two years due
to its amazing versatility and power.
In limited, play this if you're Bant. Options
are always good, and three powerful ones are
Constructed - 4
Casual - 2.5
Limited - 3.5
Alara's five Charms are all quite useful; I
don't think any of them has an ability that'll
never be useful. Bant Charm may be the best of
all of them, with three extremely high-powered
modes and both offensive and defensive
applications. Now it just needs a good deck to
play in... but let's be honest: if you can't
find good cards to put with it in those colors,
there's something wrong.

Who can complain about this whole cycle of
charms. The effects are quite powerful as they
should be for the difficult cost of casting.
This may be the best of the cycle. It deals with
artifacts permanently, creatures temporarily

with instant shenanigans. With the heavy
casting cost, it will likely be a two-of in a
constructed deck but possibly three-of. I think
blue-white control may be on the comeback in

So many good cards this week. This is just
awesome. This is basically great anywhere. Being
able to hit any creature (not just attacking or
blocking) is great, countering combat tricks and
removal spells (most are instant) is great, and
destroying most of Espers cards is great. In
