Remove Soul

A bit narrow. Answers any creature, but it's not a kill spell, its countermagic and needs to be treated as such. For two mana, you can usually find stronger counterspells, i.e. Spellstutter Sprite. Maybe not so much with Mana Leak and Rune Snag out of Standard, and it is interesting to try and compare this to Negate, but I'd rather have a soft counterspell like Mana Leak than a conditional one like this.

Constructed- 2.5
Casual- 2
Limited- 2

Remove Soul

This card was first released in Legends, so there was a time - hard as it is to believe - when this effect was not part of Magic. I almost can't imagine such a thing, personally; even though it took a long time for this card to emerge from under the shadow of Counterspell, it is an elegant, powerful, and often essential card, providing blue decks with an answer to devastating threats like Troll Ascetic and Giant Solifuge.

Remove Soul


Constructed: Don't you wish you could counter all creature spells? The ideal world for a blue mage. There is a lot of good creature in standard that you do not want to see in play. There are a few that are not affect by the spell, Demigod of Revenge is one them.


Casual: It is a common that has been around for a long time. You can really make someone mad by countering one of their big bad fatties.


Limited: It has been a long time since we did a triple X draft. It is a great card for blue, but it is a big set and you will be lucking to get more than 2 or 3 copies. If you do, and build a good control deck, you should win easily. Makes me want to break out some X edition boosters and get 7 other players together for a triple X draft.


Overall a solid counter spell. I wonder if it will show up in 11th edition...


Constructed: 3

Casual: 2

Limited: 4




Tuesday - Remove Soul

Definitely a good card to have in a blue control deck if you're in a aggro heavy meta. Oft ten though it's the noncreature cards that can wreck you. Most decks run just a wrath type of effect to deal with creatures. It is a common and in the casual crowd it is mostly creature decks so that's a plus. Limited it's also pretty good and easy to add in a more controlling or slower deck. Constructed mainly runs Negate.

Constructed - 3
Casual - 3.5
Limited - 3.5
