Supreme Verdict


5.0: First pick no matter what.  I will always play this card.
4.5: Splashable and first pick worthy.
4.0: First pick pack 1.
3.5: Early pick though not always a first pick.
3.0: Solid early/mid pick.
2.5: Solid pick in color.
2.0: Should generally make the deck if in this color.
1.5: Decent filler.
1.0: 23rd card if you have to.
0.5: This card will sometimes be sideboarded in.
0.0: I will never put this card into my deck (main deck or after sideboarding).

This card is pretty cool for a wrath.  Counter spells do run around in limited a little bit in this set so the uncounterable part actually has meaning sometimes.  And it's a wrath which can always be good.


4 definitely

I found Carmen Sandiego before you were born unless you're Zlehtnoba.

Rootborn Defenses make this card even scarier. Also makes it a bit harder to cast against white decks. Still a 4.

Have used it and had used against me to great effect. The casting cost makes it a bit prohibitive though unless you have a pretty solid U base. 
If you take color to mean WU I think a 4.0 is fair. Otherwise I think the casting difficulty has to knock it down a bit. The plus side is that it's so rare to see one of these that most people don't try to play around it. I lost a game 1 I had no business losing because my opponent chump blocked my best guy and then got all three of my creatures with this card the following turn.
4.5 and even more impressive in Sealed.
Preparing for the M14 Prerelease - New article up! IN THE TANK - my very own blog for rambling about Magic!
I did cast this with rootborn defenses once, it was pretty epic. 4
