Thwarting combos with the power of philosophy!

Opponent - I cast Kiln Fiend.

Me - Okay, in response I Aether Vial in Eidolon of Rhetoric.

Opp - Oh, great.

"Ah, I see my diurnal musings are given audience once more! What brings you to the forum this day?"

Opp - Well I was going to cast Staggershock.

"Wanton violence? Surely you must see the value in restraint. It is in controlling the urge to overact that the soul is led to enlightenment."

Opp - I knew I should have sideboarded Flame Slash...

"Ah, the hubris of man, to think he knows better than the inherited scope of his existence. If we overextend our efforts, only failure can result! Look to solace, to asceticism, to the singular focus one must commit to a spell or strategy if their goals are to be achieved! And if some higher force should, say, Dissolve that focus, then we must abide."

Death and Taxes, anyone? A Rule of Law that can be Æther Vialed seems pretty good, and it's even out of Lightning Bolt range!

Possibly not aggressive enough for Æther Vial... But I had the same thought. They're really pushing that deck, what with Spirit of the Labyrinth.

I expect this to see some play in eternal formats as a sideboard card against Storm decks.

I love the art. The effect has always been a kick to the teeth. Nice to see it on an appropriate body.

Maybe against RDW in standard...? It's interesting to note that Brimaz, Nyx-Fleece Ram and this survive Anger of the Gods, so you could play these creatures and kill only their team.

I like it! Arcane Laboratory/Rule of Law stitched in a Horned Turtle. Those cards even have the same cost!

I like this series of one per cards (spirit of the labyrinth being the other) I wonder if we'll see a trend of these in conspiracy.

Oh Parasophia - this should have been blue, and it should have been you.

Eidolon of Rhetoric is awesome because it can be fetched with Zur the Enchanter as well as reanimated with Sun Titan, Order of Whiteclay, Crypt Champion and Soulshift.
