Obviously costs way too much to be usable when you could just cast Juxtapose instead, but if you must, use these with Bronze Bombshell or Jinxed Idol.

Does the killing of the enchantments seem random to anybody else?
Posted By: SweetoothTKC (12/1/2011 10:18:53 PM)


Interesting question SweetoothTKC
I guess the enchantments are killed because they have enchanted their respecitve target in a way that is of use for their respective controller. When switching control of the permanents they simply say: "no, I don't want this negative enchantment on my new permanent nor this positive enchantment on my old permanent that is now controlled by someone else".

Hey its definitely a playable card! Steal there bomb and give them a bronze bombshell or something! Can be game changing, with only 5 mana invested over two turns.

Well, first, it's permanent, which is nifty.
Second, it's 5 to play and 5 to use.
I guess that equals a 3/5. Interesting alternative to Donate.

Well, the problem here is the "only 5 mana invested over two turns" part.
Your opponent has a turn to get rid of the gauntlets, or another turn to get rid of whatever you got from him, and still have a good amount of mana left for other stuff. Or he'll just get rid of you entirely while you're busy preparing the shenanigans in turn 5 and 6, which isn't too unlikely in agressive decks since, aussuming you want to keep your bombshell, you'll just have some defense from your first three turns.

I will forever respect and hate this card.

I ran a changeling deck and cast a Reaper King while my opponents weren't running good creature removal decks (one with a white deck with two Swords to Ploughshares in the graveyard, and the other with an old-school artifact deck that messes with colorless mana). I was pretty confident in my position until Mr. Artifact pulled out the Gauntlets and traded my King for a 1/1 changeling token I made earlier with Crib Death.

Oh, then he swung a Colossus of Sardia into my face.
