Demystify

Every once in a while this old chestnut gets reprinted, to the delight of... pretty much nobody. It's cool for destroying enchantments, obviously, but that's all. You throw a few in the sideboard just in case and you're grateful for the opportunity, but that's it.

Well, except this time. This time around, they've been printed alongside Totem Armor, which turns the Auras it's on into some of the best Auras-- no, some of the best enchantments-- that have seen print in years, outside of the occasional combo piece. This time around, people are playing Demystify maindeck, bust because there's so many solid Auras floating around that you can be confident that your opponent will have one.

Demystify
 
Demystify is good at what it does, but unfortunately it only does one thing. Cards like Qasali Pridemage and Ronom Unicorn are probably better all-round than a card like this, but since Demystify is an instant, and it only costs one mana, there are actually a few situations where it will be better. Keep a few around in case you run into a Totem Armor deck.

Today's card of the day is Demystify which for one mana can destroy a target enchantment.  This is a pretty simple card that is at best sidedeck material unless your local metagame is filled with enchantments.  If you need enchantment removal in Standard formats this is cheap and fast, and
 
For Limited this is a pretty safe choice to include in the maindeck when playing White as there are quite a few enchantments and stops Totem Armor.  For Booster draft this can be picked up later on when in your colors, but generally best taken after creature removal or efficient creatures.
