Never more. Good or bad?

So I have been talking to some people but wanted a general rating.  What would you rate out of ten for sideboard Nevermore? Leave in replies. I rate it 8/10
Heavily depends on your local metagame. It may be a oneshot instakill against some kind of single-minded combo deck. It may stop their Thragtusk/Restoangel/Whatever from ever hitting the board. It falls to their Decay, O-Ring and DetSphere, and actually it does very little for its cost. Overall 3/10, imo.
The Tournament Center is not the place to post threads like this.  This is a better fit for Standard General.  In the future, please make sure to post your threads in the correct place.  I'll be getting this moved now.

2/10. I'm pretty sure Pithing Needle does a lot of what Nevermore will do for you, but at a cheaper cost.

2/10 wouldn't bang.

Solid sideboard card, definitely.  Stop Supreme Verdict and Bonfire of the Damned before they come out!

Most of the decks it would hurt run o-ring. Nevermore is okay, but there's better options.

Since i've got a good eye for color so it looks great to people who don't get the "joke" (it's a niceley divided circle after all: the outline gives you 4-6 "regions" to work with), this has actually got me put on platter design more often, resulting in Phyrexia's presence at more private and industry events.

I agree with a lot of what has been brought up as well. it stops a lot of cards before they come out if you're worried about specific bombs (Bonfire of the Damned and every creatures). But as EyeHunter and others pointed out a lot of decks run oblivion ring and other removal for this. You may be able to play games with this in the early game to trade 3 mana for 3 mana in your favor in some cases so it's really a case dependant thing at best I would say. There are cheaper ways to remove Never More than for 3 so getting much advantage out of it would be risky. The best answer to this is probably that there is a reason you don't see Never More in a sideboard very often in many large events but it could be useful at FNM depending on what but you and other people are running. Over all I wouldn't rank it too high however.

Pithing needle doesn't stop thragtusk or unburial rights or messenger from  being played. ;)

Ive started  thinking more about nevermore lately, unfortunately I don't have (or play) a deck that could play it. If there was some wacky enhancement-based deck, it would be  interesting.

Too bad abrupt decay and golgari charm hits it.

There is an enchantment based deck. I played it this past weekend at FNM (haven't posted because I've been gone for a wedding) and I beat B/G Zombies, B/R Vampires, and G/W midrange.

I didn't play Nevermore. The card might be decent in the control matchup, but meh.

I was playing a slensya lifegain deck... I side in nevermore to answer to some stuff like board wipers, rakdos/liliana of the dark realms control decks. One of the match I still remember nevermore abrupt decay, follow by nevermore liliana... this actually stops the whole engine of my opponents deck.. another game I won against a monoblack who run knight of infamy whom I have no answer to since most of my creature are white or WG, nevermore really helps me win the next game.
