there are better, cheaper ways to destroy enchantments but this one is white so that's something else

Why does Esper have artifact hate? Bad artifact hate too.

This card is very underrated in EDH. You don't want to bog your deck down with artifact/enchantment hate, but you can't go without it either. That means fill your deck with recursion, tutors and tutorables. This one is tutorable.

Enlightened Tutor snatches this, as does Trinket Mage if you're in blue. It's also recurrable by Salvaging Station, Auriok Salvagers, and of course Sun Titan, with the option for Academy Ruins as well if you're in blue. Some of these are playable, others not.

But if you're like most and you're only into Sun Titan and Enlightented Tutor, at most, you're better off with Aura of Silence.

I really want to like this card... but the activation cost is killer. It really should cost 1W.

Being able to use this in tandem with Master Transmuter and Sanctum Gargoyle keeps it from being completely useless.

This card is somewhat annoying, because the redeeming qualities of it happen to be things I REALLY like, but sort of pale in comparison to its weakness:


1. It's black bordered
2. It's got some pretty cool art
3. I think Seal of Cleansing is alright, and this has CMC =1


1. It's activation cost
2. 'Breaking it' with recursion either isn't going to come up very often, or it's going to super-hose somebody's deck, causing them to not play against you.
3. There are simply better cards that do sort-of-this. But Seal of Cleansing doesn't have the modern card frame. :/

I'm going to go back through the Commander spoiler and see if I can find a card that has some of the pros without the cons.

This card is great. I can use it with Prototype Portal and Liquimetal Coating without feeling like a total *******.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
