Stupor

This is better than Mind Rot. The fact that the first discard is random means that an opponent can't just discard two lands to it, but might end up doing so anyway. I find random discard entertaining anyway. Trouble is, this thing often shows up in The Rack decks that minimize the importance of the randomness, because the opponent is left without a hand in three turns anyway. Much less fun, but a testament to the power of Stupor

Constructed- 4
Casual- 3.5
Limited- 3.5

Wednesday - Stupor

Another black discard spell. Probably the best discard spell for the value in standard right now. The main reason this is trumps many other discard spells in the format right now is the random discard. Most of the other cards out right now besides hypnotic specter lets your opponent decide what they discard while this spell lets it happen randomly. Its also really good because its a 2fer 1 spell for 2 cards.

Constructed: 5
Casual: 4

Stupor

There's not much to say about this card; it's just cheap, effective discard. Always has been, always will be. The only things you need to consider are whether your deck would rather have a repeatable effect (Hypnotic Specter, especially with an accelerant) or a card that sticks around to attack or block (Shrieking Grotesque). If all you really need is for your opponent's hand to be empty, it doesn't get much better than Stupor.

Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 2/5 (Hymn to Tourach is usually better)
Limited: 2/5

Stupor

This is really good, and that shows you got good Hymn to Tourach is. For 3 mana, you get a +1 in card advantage and disruption in a package. I'm never to sad to see this card in my opening hand in my The Rack deck.

In casual, the disruption is really great. No crazy combo and like Ravenous Rat, the discard makes your opponent unhappy, well this time, it's twice as unhappy.

In limited, this is advantage and can possibly take out a bomb.

Constructed: 3.5/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 4.5/5
