Rebuke

Simple and straightforward. If a creature attacks, you can kill it. The trouble is, if a creature doesn't attack, you can't kill it. Granted, white removal usually makes you jump through more hoops than this, or gives your opponent an "out"-- either a way to get the removed creature back or a compensation for losing it-- and this is probably one of White's better kill spells. Just try not to be too conspicuous about leaving three mana up and not leaving a blocker.

Rebuke
 
Rebuke's the kind of card that's perhaps not so spectacular, but in a way necessary. Limited decks love it, as you can pretty much guarantee you'll be attacked at some point; in a vacuum, it should probably be a constructed contender, but there's a lot of competition right now, some of which I think is pretty crazily costed (but I've mentioned this before, so I won't go off on a tangent here). A card that's easy and useful to build with, if not really intended to be built around.

Today's card of the day is Rebuke which is a three mana White removal for an attacking creature.  The cost of three may be slightly high compared to other removal options in the game, but is still playable if no other options are available.  Overall this is a decent choice for White and may see some play in competitive decks, though probably not the more aggressive tournament builds.
 
For Limited this is a splashable and very effective option for removing even the biggest creatures and should always be played when running White, possibly even adding White primarily for Rebuke.  This is also a great second or third pick in Booster as it should always be useful unless your opponent isn't attacking you at all.

       Welcome to another great card of the day review here at Pojo.com. Today we are looking at Rebuke from Innistrad. Rebuke is a common white instant that says destroy target attacking creature, and costs two generic and one white mana.

      While Rebuke is a far cry from Wing Shards, it is still effective at what it does. There has been some decent cards that are indestructible and have hex proof, but a majority of the threats in standard do not have those luxuries. And it is even a great option for vintage play, although the Wing Shards is still better.

      Always been a fan of whites tricks for anti-attacking, and this common option is just another great example of it at work.

TDogg The card of the day today is Rebuke.  Its two and one white to destroy target attacking creature.  It costs one less than Chastise, but you gain life with Chastise.  The big thing about white in the past couple of formats has been cheap, powerful removal.  This card is pretty powerful, but it is not as cheap as Path to Exile or Condemn.  I don't see it having a home in constructed, mainly because its cost is too high and we are in a decently quick format.  In limited however I think this card has better uses, with this being one of the few removal spells in the Innistrad I consider it very good, not good enough to be a first one pick in a draft but if it was in my pool for a sealed I would consider it
