Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
I love Unglued.
The set was a total blast to play with. This
week we'll look at some of the favorite cards from
the set. Today, YOU can be the DCI and ban a
card. Let's look at what this does. It
kills up to 4 copies, regardless of where they
are. It's kinda like Lobotomy, Splinter,
Erradicate, and those-type cards, only it doesn't
matter where they are, and they are ALL gone.
It is definite removal that will always work if
not countered. It will kill whatever is
bugging you. If you're playing white, the
card is awesome, even at 7 mana.
In limited, you're not
really getting AS much bang for your buck.
There, this is pretty much a very over-costed
removal spell, though it does take care of the
problem permanently, so even then, kill the bomb
in game 1 and you know you won't see it game 2 or
3. I'd probably still play it in the slower,
more bomb-dependant limited environment.
One of my favorite
Unglued cards, mostly because Wizards shows they
are able to take a dig at themselves. And
great artwork! Seriously, I love it!
If you can't read the flavor text because it's too
small, it reads, "Few understand the DCI's
rigorous decision-making process."
interesting note about this card is that it bans
cards for the MATCH, not just the game. If your
opponent is playing combo, it can remove a vital
part of the combo and basically wreck the deck for
the last 2 games of the match. ;)

Monday - Look at Me,
I'm the DCI
Psychatog got you
down? Ban Upheaval. U/G got you down? Ban the
dog (Wild Mongrel). Playing Elves? Ban Rancid
Earth or Slice and Dice. Whatever you need, this
card will take care of it for you.
Look at me, I'm the
One of the most dangerous cards in an unglued
match, if this gets resolved a
couple of times against you game 1, even if you
win because they're spending
whole turns casting it, you'll probably lose the
next couple of games. One
of (imo) the funniest art/titles in the set, too.
Not so strong in limited
constructed - 3.8
limited - 2
Look at Me I’m DCI is
probably the ultimate control card but at its
price who the heck can afford it. 7 Mana to stop 1
card. Maybe it is worth it against combo but
seriously, what deck can afford to wait for 7 mana
against combo decks?
Constructed – Too
costly to be worthwhile for most decks – 2.00
Limited – Even worse
here, plus you never know what they are going to
have so it really just acts as removal for 1 or 2
in play cards – 1.50
Look At Me, I'm the
to ban any card for the remainder of a match can
strip away an opponents win condition and
practically guarantee you the match. The cost is
rather high, but I don't think it's over-costed
for it's ability.
Look at me I'm the DCI
This would be a better card if it was cheaper. but
hey makes a good Unglued card for SBing I guess.
Limited- Prolly not, but you can name their bomb
card or something.
