Tuesday - Jund Charm

Like all of the charms, this is a highly versatile card. It is not the strongest of the charms, but that doesn't keep it from seeing some play in 5cc type decks, usually for the Pyroclasm ability. The +2/+2 can also be very nice in the right situation. While it's true that Firespout and Pyroclasm are both legal, this is better in the 5cc deck because it's an instant and it's more versatile. In non-control decks, just run the Firespout instead.

In limited, it's versatile and it has two very useful abilities. Play it if you're in the colors.

Constructed - 3
Casual - 3
Limited - 3.5

Jund Charm

All of Alara's Charm spells are very powerful, and Jund Charm is no exception. At first glance it can look like you'll only ever use two of its abilities... but then you realize that wither is a keyword ability from a recent set, and that Rage Forger and Bramblewood Paragon are always looking for new allies. Even if you really do only need the first two, you rarely see these abilities at instant speed for such a discount price, so enjoy it.

Constructed: 4/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 4/5

Jund Charm

This is one of the better Alara charms in my opinion, and they are all already very good, so that shows how good this card is. Its mainly used for instant boardsweeping since this is the only playable instant speed board sweeping effect in Standard. Combine that awesome mode with the versatility of removing a graveyard or adding 2 +1/+1 counters for combat tricks or Persist interaction just makes this powerful, versatile all rolled into an efficient cost.

Constructed: 3.8/5
Casual: 3.5/5
Limited: 4/5

Jund Charm

 

Constructed: It is one the best charms. To do 2 damage to all creatures at instant speed is awesome. It can even cross over to other constructed formats with it's first ability.

 

Casual: Charms are okay for the casual crowd. I wonder if a only Charmed deck would work. Hummmm.

 

Limited: Would pick this high even if I am not going Jund. It is to strong to let someone else use it.

 

Overall a very good charm hard to chose between it and Esper Charm.

 

Constructed: 4

Casual: 3

Limited: 4
