Played a massive 11 player multiplayer game the other day. Got some Jace's, and Gideon's. Used this late game. Blue guy countered it. I Twincasted. Hello, Venser. Hello, Baneslayer. Hello, everything useful in play. See that Aven on the art? That's me.

You're not going to be taking Moxen with this card; when you cast it, you clearly have access to enough mana.

I like Dberry02's idea! Great thought. Sure it'll still paint the bullseye on your back, but at the same time, won't make every chair at the table want to end your life. In fact, its such a politically efficient and "nice" way to play this card, it might just get forgiven fairly quickly if not earn you a friend or 2 out of sheer respect and classy style alone! as far as what Drewsel said.. Yeah no. You don't steal "SOME" Jace's or Gideon's, etc.. For SOME of ANY Planeswalkers would fail to exist simultaneously to begin with.. And if you were talking about stealing them more than once over seperate games the same day, well.. I'd then too have to call your bluff on that because, A. 11 seats filled for a multiplayer game is no quick outting, that's a long game and the chances of you pulling Jace and Gideon at the same time more than once in tje same day is darn near.. No, F that, it isn't even possible. You sir have a long nose. Just sayin ;) And last but not least, @ Scumbling1: I... (see all)

"Mine, mine, mine, mine, and-"

Is beaten up for being a dick and playing this in a six player game.

Haha! "I'll leave subtlety to the rich", while taking a Moxen. The irony... or overshadowing. I don't know how expensive Moxes were in 2002.

4BlueBlueBlue is usually more difficult to pay than if it cost 6BlueBlue. Although it costs less, you still have to allocate so many of your lands for the BlueBlueBlue. Even if it's not too much of a hassle to play, like if you were playing a two-coloured deck like BlueRed Melek EDH (but I don't know WHO'D do THAT!), you've now used 3 of your lands for blue, leaving less blue-creating lands for any other blue spells you'd like to play.

All in all, Blatant Thievery is to Control Magic as Decree of Pain is to Damnation. You get more of an effect, but it's accounted for in the cost.

Nothing like casting this for free with Jeleva and copying it a few times with the left over mana.

I remember one time me and a bunch of friends got together and had an absolutely massive free for all (I think it was upwards of 20 players). After a round or two we decided to just split up into groups of three, but it was still technically the massive free for all. I would have killed to be able to play this at the time if I knew about it, but at least I did manage to cast a congregate.

Well, of course this card is rude in multiplayer. Being really rude in multiplayer is the point of this card, obviously.
