Card of the Day - Forced Tranquility and Blood Shade

Smite sucks. It's wordy, clumsy, far too focused, and extremely top-down. It should not be a keyword. At best, it should be an interesting ability that shows up on one uncommon or rare.

It also is very white-centric. Nonwhite cards with smite just don't seem right. What is a Blood Shade doing smiting things anyway? That's not his job.

  1. It kind of reminds me of Disembowel, which is a card from Ravnica that costs XB and kills something costing X or less. It was a great card. Smite...I'm going to have to agree with you on this one. It kind of fails. You mill yourself to kill one thing that fulfills a certain condition. Too narrow, too weak. Sorry dude. Oh well, they can't all be winners.
