Inaction Injunction
 
Is it worth detaining a creature for only one turn, when there are plenty of cards in both blue and white that can get it off the table more or less for good? I believe that sometimes is. Outright removal spells are good, but they sometimes don't help you from getting overwhelmed, and they almost never let you dig deeper into your deck (thank goodness; can you imagine?). Time is a very underrated resource, and Inaction Injunction is like a gust of wind from the Elemental Plane of Time. An aggro deck needs a fast draw to beat an early Injunction, and a very fast one to beat multiples. And that's assuming you don't draw Supreme Verdict with it.

Today's card of the day is Inaction Injunction which is a two mana Blue that detains a target creature an opponent controls and you draw a card.  This is an okay stall card that is really only playable thanks to the cantrip aspect of drawing a card.  Even with that Blue has better options at similar costs that are a bigger inconvenience for the opponent in most situations and can work defensively, such as bounce effects.  Overall an okay card, but not one that will make a huge impact in competitive play.
 
In Limited this is a stall and deck thinner that should be included in Sealed builds and as a common can be picked up in multiples during Booster after removal and notable creatures.  The stall is useful if removal is light in your pool and the likelihood of only one threat being across the battlefield makes this quite effective in the format.
