Pariah - Tuesday

I've never felt like this was a main deck kind of card. It's always a sideboard card. It stops large chunks of damage from wrecking your world. It works even better if you have a creature with protection from the color that you fear. I wouldn't mind having it in limited, if I could land it on a regenerator ot a really large creature.

Constructed: 2
Casual: 3.5
Limited: 3

Pariah

As if this card didn't show up enough in my Stuffy Doll Contest along with Guilty Conscience. Now Pariah and the Doll are Standard-legal at the same time. And Cho-Manno came along for the ride as well! Obviously the combos are comprehensive here, but without one, this is basically a Holy Day that makes you sacrifice a creature. Good luck.

Constructed- 1.7
Casual- 4
Limited- 2.6

Pariah

I can only think of two cards in Standard that really interact with Pariah: Stuffy Doll and Cho-Manno. I'm not sure either of those combos is Tier 1 material, but if you like it, you might as well play it. It's got many applications in casual play: Cho-Manno and Fog Bank are the most broad, and Silver Knight and White Knight can really annoy certain decks. If nothing else, you can use it as removal in limited (sort of).

Constructed: 1/5
Casual: 3/5
Limited: 2/5

Pariah:

This is a combo card with yesterday's card. With this card and yesterday's card, you effectively have "You cannot be damaged". This combos with any indestructible card, and combos in general with any card that does anything when damaged, or can soak up a lot of damage. You can even play it on an opponent's creature as pseudo removal.

Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 5/5 (Johnny)
Limited: 3.5/5
