Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
of Daggers - A black Wrath of God that only
applies to your opponent... but you take the
penalties. While it's a decent idea and has
potential, you do have to be mindful of you life
total when you cast this. Early in the game,
or during a standoff, it's great... if you've been
beaten half to death, not so good. Maybe play it
with something that prevents loss of life in a
This might be useful
in Extended, against the Tinker Incubator
deck.otherwise, I'll pass in constructed.
In limited, it might
be useful if they have like 7+ creatures with
one toughness. But this doesn't get played for a
Rain of Daggers
better than plague wind just because it's
cheaper, but it's also a much
worse card in most situations than the black
decree, because it is still
too expensive and hurts you more in the beatdown
Rain of Daggers
This card is just another wrath, or is it?
Personally this is one of the better wraths ever
printed. Too bad its a portals 2 card. This is
something mono black could definetly use. Not
destroying your own creatures while blowing up
all your opponents creatures at a cost of 6 is a
powerhouse of an ability. The life loss really
doesn't matter that much, since you'd be taking
more damage just letting them stay around. Also
playing this will let your one big monster like
Grid Monitor or a flying Demon token through.
In limited I would always take it first
pick, and I would always play it if I could. I
would really try to play it if I took it too.
Depends on how late I get it, but still... 6
mana plague wind is insane in limited.
If it was reprinted in a future set as is...
Rain of Daggers
"OMG" - me, just now
when I saw what this card did.
Wow. .... Wow. Its
like...wow. It kills THIER creatures, for only
2 more mana than a wrath. The side effect, you
gotta take 2 for every creature you destroyed
this way. Sign me up. Unfortuelty, only n00bs
get to taste teh yummyness of this card, cause (i
think) I saw a portal symbol in the right
black could run this. Big cheap hurtful
creatures everyturn until you can dagger away
thier army and bash for the kill leaving you on
miniscule amounts of life seem fun to me.
Limtied, yes. Just
Constructed rating -
4 (white plays wrath, there is no excuse for
black not to play this)
Limited rating - 5.1
(you play this if you have it. You steal
someone elses and play it if they have it.)
Better than Rain of
Blades Rating - sure, why not?
I really really hate Portal cards. Portal cards
are not legal in sanctioned tournament formats, so
the only format this card is playable in is Casual
Constructed and Portal Limited. Dare I say this
format is filled with creatures. It'll kill all of
your opponent's creatures, but are you willing or
able to take the immense pain involved with
playing the card? In Constructed you can go around
this by some Black/White janky lifegain deck, but
in Limited it'll cost you.
Casual Constructed: 3
Portal Limited: 2
Rain of Daggers:
This is most definately a black mechanic.
Destroying all their creatures,
then the loss of life. How good this card is, is
determined by the
situation. If they have a bunch of 1/1 weenies, no
way. With a few Exalted
Angels and Akroma, I wouldn't hesitate.
Casual: 3 (Situationaly Speaking)
