Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
Pendulum - "Woman, how much money did ya give to
that monsta??" "Threeee-fitty".
that same $3.50, she could have bought herself
this quality Mirrodin Rare. But alas, it was not
to be. Now she has the Loche Ness Monsta after
her. So the moral of the story is,
Magic cards and you won't have to deal with
Anyhow, this is cheap
artifact card draw. Kinda fun. More for casual,
probably. Yep. I'm tired. I'm going to bed now.
You know I still lub you all.
I guess they wanted
to do something like Cursed Scroll again, I
don't know. Unfortunately, they should have
stuck to damage. If they had, this might be
playable. As it is, conditional card draw
doesn't do much for me.
In limited, it's
still conditional card draw, and you'll have a
good way to see if they can remember things. I
still wouldn't play this, though.
I'm entertained by this card, it's cheap and it
has potential. Assuming
you know what you're doing, you should be able to
get a card slightly more
than half the time, unless your opponent is
literally just rolling a dice
for their yes or no answer (which is pretty much
what they should do). In
any case, you'll end up spending an average of
four mana per card, making
this similar to jayemdae in a lot of ways...
except it's cheaper to play
initially, but doesn't garauntee a card a turn
like jayemdae does. Not a
broken card by any means, but entertaining, like
i said. and card
advantage regardless of how iffy.
In my first
mirrodin draft I played this, and it was worth
it. Its tricky to use, but the card advantage it
provides is great. By the end of the day I was
12-5 with it(cards drawn-cards not drawn). One
player just decided to flip a coin and guess
each time, and he actually did the best against
it. Theres a ton of ways to try to fool your
opponent. Like having 2 cards in hand playing a
forest for your turn and then calling forest
with it. Do you have another forest? maybe your
just messing with them, or maybe its double
negative and you actually have it, because that
would be so predictable... this card can play
some fun mind games with your opponent. Another
idea was at the beginning of your opponent's
attack step using it and calling a removal spell
like terror or irradiate and then when they say
you have it, don't show them your hand and
decline. Although this could be a bad thing if
they still attack it could make them wary.
All in all a solid
limited card. Its main benefits is that its real
cheap to cast and activate. This card WILL draw
you cards, and a good player will be able to
draw more cards than not in the long run.
In constructed, long
term card drawing in this form just isn't
needed, fast enough, or reliable enough.
Liar's Pendulum has
the advantage of being one of the cheaper sources
of card advantage. On the other hand it is 2 mana
for a 50/50 shot at each card.
Constructed - Maybe
look for other sources of card advantage but some
deck designers will try to make this card work -
Limited - Maybe the
unpredictibility of deck design makes this more
powerful here, maybe not by much - 2.76
"Wow, if decks get
made around this card, it can get hosed by
telepathy" - me after opening my first one.
Pretty cruddy card
to open as your rare. I have opened 4
I tinkered witht he
idea of making a liars pendulum deck, but, I
fail to see how a card like that can enhance a
deck. Upcoming sets would probably give this
card some sort of tech. I love the idea f this
becoming a super huge deck though. How cool
would the flavour be if you could totally shut
aan opponent down cause you could read his mind?
General rule - dont
Constructed Rating -
? (This card is just silly. I dont want to give
it a bad rating, cause it isnt a bad card...just
silly) (Says the boy who plays lethal vapours)
(shut up you)
Limited rating - 1
(this I know you dont want to play in limited.
Dont wanna be using up mana resources, and you
dont want to be showing your opponent what you
got in store for him by revealing.)
card Rating - 5 (its cheap, its an artifact,
andit can refill your hand...kinda.) (although
how scary would it be having one card in hand,
and every time you draw, you name broodstar.
This is one weird
card. Its cost is cheap and so is its activated
ability. However, during the course of the game
you will be playing cards out of your hand, making
the card less effective for you. In limited,
you're not playing with archetypes, and you're
playing plenty of one-ofs that make this card more
random (and it will garner more cards for you)
than in constructed. However, you don't have to
reveal the card if you guess wrong, so you don't
have to incur a disadvantage there.
Type 2: 2
Mirrodin Block Constructed: 2
Mirrodin Block Limited: 3
Wow, what a goofy card. This card seems like it
would be fun to play between
friends who know each others deck well. Other then
that, I cannot see this
seeing serious play at all. Seeing as many control
decks need surprise and
this ruins it for them. Also, in many decks, there
are alot of better things
to do with that 2 mana.
