I agree with Selez on this card. The power up is too obvious, too much, it's hardly a fair adjustment.

Selez is absolutely right. Power Creep which makes new cards strictly better than all of their kind from older sets. (I have the same opinion about Lightning Bolt)
Back to Nature kills aura-decks at instant speed and for just two mana.

By introducing totem armor I hoped auras would finally get the power boost they needed and deserved but with this in the actual main set no aura deck has great chances in standard.

@HairlessThoctar: That's because Artifacts also come in the form of creatures and certain deck types are mainly comprised of Artifacts. Being able to wipe an opponent's board for two mana would be absurdly broken.

I think I'll stick with Calming Verse instead.

This card eliminates mono red's biggest weakness (no way to touch enchantments most of the time) and is super easy to splash, play rootbound crag, etc and watch your opponent cry when all his crazy white enchants go bye bye.

4.5/5

You could pay 10 mana for Planar Clensing and Armageddon, 10 mana for Mycosynth Lattice and Shatterstorm, or 7 mana for Enchanted Evening and Back to Nature.

The latter looks like the better deal, especially considering all the style points you get and that you can threaten the destruction at instant speed.

And can you imagine if this got reprinted in M12 with all those enchantments around? That would be hilariously unbalanced for limited.

@HairlessThoctar

So far, there is only 1 enchantment creature and over 400 artifact creatures. That's why.

I have heard some complaints about this card, but only from the same people that complain about Wrath effects.

It is a challenging card to use, but powerful. The deck needs to be designed around it, and it is often a dead draw. In comparison, wrath effects are rarely dead draws.

I own a playset, but after building 4-5 green decks, I often have a couple left over.

Run with Enchanted Evening and laugh yourself silly. Of course, if you want to save yourself 2 mana and not have to run green, you can alternatively run Patrician's Scorn and wipe the board clean for 5 mana.
