Mnemonic Wall

Again, five mana is a bit pricey, but I think this card is worth it. Not only is it a good blocker, but it acts like an Izzet Chronarch. Izzet Chronarch was once a keystone in infinite combo decks, and I have no doubt that this will be too. Into the Roil with kicker on Mnemonic Wall, then recast the Wall to get back Into the Roil?

Mnemonic Wall
 
Some philosophers believe that your memories are the most valuable things in the world, because they are the only thing that can never be stolen from you or corrupted by anything else. Memory aids are still sparse and unreliable in our world, so Mnemonic Wall is the next best thing – it’s basically all upside for blue-aligned players. The only thing better than casting Tidings is casting Tidings again.

Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 3/5
Multiplayer: 3/5

If it had flying it would be a great card for blue decks. Oh look, I will return my Cruel Ultimatum...

Magic The Gathering Card of the Day: Mnemonic Wall
 
Welcome back readers today’s card of the day is a powerful wall creature (not an oxymoron, trust me on that.) from Rise of the Eldrazi. For five mana one of it requiring blue you get a 0/4 creature with Defender. The main selling point of this creature is that it allows the player to return an instant or sorcery card from their graveyard to their hand. The ability to return instants and sorcery’s is powerful, there’s a reason wizards made Natures Spiral target only permanents. For five mana this card is far from broken but best case scenario is you get back a game changing spell and have a blocker. In standard I could see this guy partnering up with powerful Sphinxes in Grixis control decks. In extended and eternal this card could be used to fetch Ultimatums and powerful blue cards such as Gifts Ungiven and Fact or Fiction. In casual and multiplayer it provides a solid blocker and allows you to grab your game ending spells back for a second go. In limited if you run a lot of spells and have a few bomb instant or sorceries give this guy a shot.

Constructed: 2.5
Casual: 3.5
Limited: 3.0
Multiplayer: 4.0

Michael "Maikeruu" Pierno Mnemonic Wall - A defender that recycles an instant or sorcery is extremely efficient and useful for Blue as you can get two stalling options for a single play.  Five mana is high for a 0/4 Defender, but getting an Ultimatum or other bomb back is worth the price.
