Happy new year to all of you! Holidays usually mess with my calendar, so I forgot about the CCTW, but I'll fill you guys in right now!
This week I chose Phobia Plates
I have been looking at Phobia Plates for some time now, and it is an interesting piece of battlegear. This card defeats decks like my Clodor deck by shutting them off at their source: challenges. A number of decks use challanges right now like stat drain decks, or even most other decks use at least a few attacks with challenges.
Its second ability is a little more deck specific. You will mostly see damage dealing mugic in underworld deck, but more and more generic mugic, and mugic in other tribes are getting in on the action. Cards like Casters' Warsong, Psionic Serenade, and Prelude to Dominance are seeing more play now-a-days, and this card give your creatures a good defense against them.
What do you guys think about this card? Rate out of 10 :).
