Journey to Nowhere

It's an improvement over Pacifism, I'd say, since this thing also stops activated abilities. And makes any +1/+1 counters or Auras fall off when it exiles the target. Sure, your opponent could get the creature back, but that was true for Pacifism too. Heck, Pacifism still let the opponent sacrifice the creature to his Nantuko Husk. Journey to Nowhere just makes it GONE.

Constructed- 3.5
Casual- 3
Limited- 3.75
Multiplayer- 3

Journey to Nowhere
 
The art may look like a "graveyard" piece from the Lorwyn-Shadowmoor era, but the ability is all about now. Being a turn faster than Oblivion Ring is great against cheap creatures, and I wouldn't even be surprised to see it in constructed at some point.
 
Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 3/5
Limited: 4/5
Multiplayer: 2/5

Journey to Nowhere
 
Constructed: Creature only Oblivion Ring and one cheaper. Path to Exile is better for now.
 
Casual & Multiplayer: White and all of its creature enchaments. It is one of the annoying colors in multiplayer.
 
Limited: Load up on several of these the keep the board clear for the win. Have not tried it yet. It should work, I will have to try it out. There is not alot of enchantment removal in Zendikar limited. But if you get to much creature removal and not enough creatures than it makes it harder to win games.
 
Overall a okay card. Oblivion Ring's little brother.

Today's card of the day is Journey to Nowhere, the latest in a long line of White enchantments that remove a target from being a direct threat.
Most similar to Oblivion Ring as it removes from play with the cost of many other options this is a very powerful card that will see quite a bit of play in any format.

For Constructed, Casual, and Multiplayer this is a cheaper Oblivion Ring that only works on creatures. Extremely useful and one of the best choices for anti-creature in White as it doesn't just prevent attacking or blocking, but also will stop any other effects. True removal like Path to Exile is generally better, but this is very much playable and may be better in certain decks.

With Limited this is a very early pick in Booster as affordable removal with little in set to recover the targeted creature. In Sealed this belongs in every deck using even a little White mana. This is White's verion of a Terror/Doom Blade and should be drafted just as early.

Constructed: 4.0
Casual: 4.0
Limited: 4.5
Multiplayer: 4.0
