To go along with Luminesce. I actually liked
Luminesce better because it could effectively
counter all the copies of a Grapeshot, as well
as void whatever spells had contributed to Storm
count. Celestial Purge couldn't have done that,
but now that Storm has rotated out of Standard,
I doubt any Standard decks would want Luminesce
Of course, it is still just sideboard fodder.
But when it can RFG Nicol Bolas for two mana,
it's good sideboard fodder.
Increasingly, nothing is safe from white spells
- not even Bitterblossom, or Chandra Nalaar, or
Hellspark Elemental, or Ajani Vengeant, or
Furnace of Rath, or Ichorid, or Necropotence.

Not a heck of a lot to say about today's card.
Fantastic in the sideboard but that is about the
only place it would ever go. However, it is an
instant...it is only two cc...it can kill
anything (permanents). Very efficient for what
Magic Noob in Canada since 2002
Great sideboard card because removing a
black/red permanent for 2 CC at instant speed is
just really efficient. There's also no lack of
black/red permanents. Definitely worth a
sideboard slot in any deck running white, or at
least is one of the top candidates to be
considered for one. Don't board this in for
Faeries just for the Bitterblossom though.
This card showed up in some top decks in the
last Pro Tour. Great against Demigod of Revenge
and Figure of Destiny. Great sideboard card for
against any red or black combination.
It's a good card for any casual game, but we
rarely play sideboards and multi-player you
never know what is going to show up.
Like I have said before I value removal highly.
I would even hate draft it. Staring down a Nicol
Bolas, Planeswalker, not a problem. Some bust
out a Maelstrom Archangel, done. Almost all of
the big threats have a little black or red in
them, but there are some that this will not deal
Overall another great uncommon.
Thursday - Celestial Purge
What the.....where's black new removal wizards?
really....another white spell and this one
removes planeswalkers? Definitely spoiling white
lately. I expect to see this getting some play
at least in sideboards as a way to get rid of
sarkhan and ajani for cheap. Casual decks could
always use some nice removal like this. Limited
is even better for all the gold creatures to
