Pillory of the Sleepless

This is probably the weakest card that we've covered so far this week. I don't think it's terrible, but I'm personally not a huge fan of the "Pacifism" type effects in the game. I think in limited though, multiple copies of this card could be very constricting for your opponent and could help dominate a match. If you are playing black and white, I can't see a reason for you to play another other spell with a similar ability over this one. It's likely to do a solid bit of damage and still stop a creature from attacking or blocking on top of it all.

Constructed: 1.5
Casual: 2.5
Limited: 3.5

Pillory of the Sleepless

I really like Pillory in limited - it's so annoying for opponents who face the choice of taking 1 a turn (which really tends to add up) or destroying their own creature most of the time. No one is playing Blue, so bounce isn't usually a choice for them.

A fun casual card too, and one that is worthy of some play in Black/White builds.

Constructed - 2.5
Casual - 3.5
Limited - 4
