Debtor's Pulpit

 
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).


I'm not sure how much I like this card yet.  It looks like a solid card but it is kind of spendy.  I haven't gotten a chance to use it yet.

I'll wait to grade this one a little later.

Of the two white guilds, this fits much better with Orzhov than it does with Boros. Perhaps 3.0-3.5 for Orzhov, 1.5-2.0 for Boros.
too late to be of any use against the three aggro guilds, useless against orzhov anyways. The only thing I see could happen is stopping dimir.

Not really the case at all.

Boros can't consistently trigger battallion before turn 4.  They can attack turn 2 if they get Boros elite... for 1.  And turn 3 for 4 if they get Skyjek.  Of course, it's entirely possible to have a [c]Basillica Guards[/b] out by turn three if you are Orzhov, which pretty much shuts them down.  Or the bats on turn 2, which is a good trade for Orzhov.  The idea that you'll be dead by turn you play this is to assume that you play absolutely nothing as Orzhov between turns 1-5.  Which just a ridiculous assumption.

That said, I'll give a 3.0 in Orzhov, and 2.5 in boros.  Boros does get use out this as it removes blockers in the mid game, which is where the guild suffers a lot.  In Orzhov, which has plenty of removal at hand, it can lock out the opponent extremely well.
