Another good thing about Coercion is that you can choose a land card which is not always the case with "controlled discard", almost equalling a black Stone Rain (or Rain of Tears) in the early game.

This was one of my first cards and is the reason I love discard decks so much. <3

The opportunity to pluck any card from your opponent's hand is surprisingly difficult to come by. Cheaper targeted discard spells always involve a "non-land" qualification. Some might scoff at using a first turn Dark Ritual to play Coercion (arguing that it ought to be used on a more aggressive card), but against many decks out there getting rid of a crucial spell first turn (or a land to cripple their acceleration) can be a win condition. Also, never underestimate the worth of targeted discard spells since they also allow you to see your opponent's hand. Gaining information in addition to the discard result is underemphasized.

My favorite art and flavor text of Coercion, too.

Probably the best art and flavor text for one of the strongest discard cards at the time. Only slightly weaker than Hymn to Tourach (This can be debated), this was one of the earliest forms of controlled discard (i.e. "look at the hand and choose") and, although now out shadowed by Thoughtseize, can still totally mess up the best of players.

That's not very free willed.

I have approximately 56 copies of this particular version of Coercion. Thank you, Target packs with 'bonus cards'!
