Hey pojo people. Today, I’ll give you the 2nd
(really 5th) most used cards that you’ll
probably see at the 5 Civ. I’ll take a stab and say
Mana Cost: 4
Ability: Shield Trigger
Put a card from your mana zone to your shields.
I’ll try to keep this short. I’m in sort of a rush.
The Positive Side
The card puts cards in your shields. That’s good,
right? If you said no, leave…
Shields are always a good thing to have, especially
if you get to choose what card goes in there. This
card puts one in from the mana zone, where all the
wasted Snares, Pits and Holy Awes lay. Put one of
those in, and you got yourself some radioactivity in
You can use nexus to put other nexuses into the
shields, which is cool since it’s a shield trigger
also. It takes up attacks to get those nexuses out,
so it always helps. Plus, you still get the shield
trigger at the end.
The Negative Side
The card, as crazy as it sounds, does have a bad
side to it. For every card you put in the shields,
your taking one out of your mana zone, so you lose
mana. For most decks, that’s not a problem, but if
your not using green with this card, then your not
going to get as easy of a time with this…
That’s really the only bad thing I see. It’s a good
card and it should be used in 4s.
The Limited Side
The card goes way down in ability in limited play,
but I’d complain more about the fact that they’re
using rampage for limited anyway. There aren’t that
many shield triggers you’ll come across that can
change the mood of the game, but you could get
lucky. Still, takes up some attacks and gets you a
free card, so why not?
Here’s the + and – Recap
+ Get free shields
+ Burn up a couple of attacks
+ Great chance to set your opponent up
Constructed- 5/5- Overall, just an amazing
Limited-2.5/5- Only good for more shieldage
and maybe the lucky terror pit, snare, or holy awe.
Art- 4.5/5- Do I do a dance or offer a
sacrifice? Either way…
That’s it for mana nexus. If anyone has a Q, triple
C, or just wants to speak their mind, E-mail me at
