Get the MTG
by John Hornberg
The type II cards have been hogging the spotlight
here in the Single Card
Strategies, particularly cards from Invasion. I
say we give one of the
older cards a run.
Cataclysm is another one of those "Blow up
EVERYTHING" cards. In a way,
it's better than Jokalhaups and/or Obliterate, because
each player keeps one
of everything (One land, enchantment, creature, and
artifact) all for two
white and two colorless.
That's the same cost for a Wrath of God, except Wrath
get the one or two
creatures Cataclysm doesn't.
Doesn't Cataclysm seem like the better deal?
It's best with cards like Soltari Priest (2/1 White
Shadow for Two White
that's Pro Red), and more recently Thermal and/or
The best Enchantment to keep around would be something
like a Worship, or a
C.O.P. of some sorts. Or, for much more offense,
keep an Empyrial Armor,
the meanest white card aside from this card and Orim's
Again, like how I feel about Warped Devotion, this card
is a sleeper card,
then again I've only been playing since around June
2000. Someone did
actually go into Worlds '98 and got I think 8th over all
with this style
Just remember when building this deck, you need to have
some creature that's
pro-something, ANYTHING, and an enchantment that is as
defensive as Worship
or as offensive as Empyiral Armor.
I can be e-mailed at email@example.com,
and be forewarned that I
respond to EVERYTHING I POSSIBLY CAN!!!!!
So keep that in mind when you send me stuff. There
was a sort of
misunderstanding with that on my Warped Devotion
