Nameless Inversion

It's better in block than standard, where its "loses all creature types" clause might actually matter in case it fails to kill its target, but deep-sixing any 3-toughness creature for 1B is hard to argue with. People loved Last Gasp, and people love Nameless Inversion. They love it even more for its Changeling, and the possibility of recurring it with Lord of the Undead, or even of getting it for cheap with Frogtosser Banneret.

Nameless Inversion

Last Gasp was a good card, so Nameless Inversion should be exactly the same, right? Depends what you want to use it for. If you play Standard and thus regularly face of red creatures with four toughness or higher (did you ever think you'd hear anyone say that?), it's nearly useless. If, however, your opponents have elves and Silver Knight-style white creatures, and/or tribal interactions that you want to deactivate for just two mana, it's much better than Last Gasp because it can do more things. That's not even counting the fact that it's an Elf for Wren's Run Vanquisher and a Faerie for Secluded Glen, or the fact that you can use it on a Tombstalker to hit even harder than you would ordinarily. Maybe it's just me, but I think that's just about the coolest thing ever.

Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 3/5

Nameless Inversion

 

Constructed: I have not seen this card in the past couple of months. I think Agony Warp took it over for a bit. I have yet to see it as a black pump spell. It is use for removal almost 100% of the time. I think I will dust my off and make it a pump spell instead of removal. Let see what creatures have a toughness greater than 3...

 

Casual: Okay card. A lot of casual players did not really understand the whole tribal idea at first.

 

Limited: One of the best removal spells from Lorwyn. Maybe it could be the best pump spell to. Dang it! Now I want to draft Lorwyn, yesterday it was X, tomorrow who knows.

 

Overall a really good card that can take out indestructibles. And it is Tribal and Minting.

 

Constructed: 4

Casual: 3

Limited: 4

Wednesday - Nameless Inversion

My favorite removal spell of late. Way better as it can pump your creatures for the final blow. It's changeling interactions are also great. Haakon with this is a nice soft lock on your opponent's creatures. All the warchief type cards make this cheaper, all the morningtide tribal interactions can make this card even better. While this card is great alone, it really shines when it interacts with other cards in your deck that care about tribal.

Constructed: 4
Casual - 4
