Good article!

Also, I get to feel smug because I was reading that game thinking "Six mana? Looks like Darksteel Sentinel...".

Dispense Justice is an interesting case actually. Sometimes I deliberately walk into the opponent's Dispense Justice trap if I think it would be better to get it out of their hand early. Particularly if I think I might want to attack with multiple creatures later in the game and expect they will have metalcraft by then.
"Oh right, that," in 2HG, right after our opponents cast Carrion Call in our end step when we had nine poison counters and the ability to stop exactly one attacking creature (I anticipated a possible Blackcleave Goblin).
Thanks to everyone who helped with the design of the plane of Golamo in the Great Designer Search 2!

I enjoyed this weeks article (having not really enjoyed the last few).  Anecdotes from real game situations are very useful in thinking what would I do in this situation.  I agree that forcing out a [c]Dispense Justice[/s] early can be a real benefit for the later game.

I would be interested to see SS' deck list was as I haven't seen a succesful dinosaur deck yet.
