Traitorous Instinct

 
Show

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 one of my favorite steal spells like this.  I just like that it gives it a power boost.  In this set it can be ok in the right deck.  I know some Izzet builds like having one or two of these.

1.5

I have to go at least 2.0 for this. This can be extremely punishing, even without a sac outlet.
I really like this card. It is often a win condition when you use it. I would go 2.0
2-2.5.
