2U: Enchantment
Creatures do not untap during their controllers' untap phases.
Whenever any creature comes into play, untap all creatures.
One footstep among many is silent. One footstep alone is deafening.



This is sorta of a meh... card IMO. I really dont know what to say about this card since it can help you if you have creatures or cards that make tokens but causes your opponent to untap goes the same way on the other side of the spectrum.

The Duck's Rating: 2/5

Combo card. Pure and simple.

Kiki-Jiki makes an infinite combo of infinite creatures.

The other possibility is Selesnya Evangelist making infinite tokens.

In an Elf decks that uses Glimpse of Nature, it could be used to insane amounts of mana and elves... As well as likely cause you to deck yourself.

Once this hits the table, if you can keep their creature spells from resolving, they will only get one swing and they will become locked. While that's an unlikely strategy, it is a possible use for this card.

Anyway, it scores 3/5 cause of combo purposes. Other then that, it's not got much use.

Yep combo card pure and simple, maybe try a combo with Kiki-Jiki + a creature that produces mana (Birds,Llanowar) + an X spell (Blaze,Psychic Drain) to win the game, anyway the decent card overall. 3/5

EDIT: I had feeling we already reviewed this card seems we did.

hmm... guess we did, my bad.

I didn't do that COTD so it wasn't in my memory. Sorry.

No problem

Besides the reveiw I did for this COTD is much better then the one I did on the another one.
