Todays RtR card to rate is...

Swift Justice


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 is a pretty nice combat trick.  It gives a lot of good abilities.  I mean first strike is one of the best combat abilities in the game.  Lifelink is an added bonus and the additional power is nice to.

Not a high pick but a solid one.


Much more impressive now than I thought it was. 2.5
I think 2.0 is fair. The only combat tricks I enjoy running in this set are Giant Growth and Savage Surge.
This is my favorite trick against Rakdos. 2 for me

I think 2.0 is fair. The only combat tricks I enjoy running in this set are Giant Growth and Savage Surge.

You never consider running chorus of might? I think it's pretty good.

2-2.5. One of the good tricks, and it feels so good on stuff like Azorius Arrester or Selesnya Sentry.

I like this card in 2 - 2.5 range as well. It's value increases if I'm light on removal. I've had good success with decks that were heavy on combat tricks instead of removal. It allows me to play aggressively and gives my opponents pause.
