@mox-donkey I will keep that under consideration. Not every video is going to be a lot of matches, in fact my next one will be an interview 🙂

Enjoy! This is a project I've been working on to try to piece together as additional content for my YouTube channel. I don't have a real set release schedule yet but will be hammering that down hopefully to probably every month or so.

@stormanimagus if you know anything about me, it's that I'm happy to be proven wrong by results (and I have been before so nobody is absolutely perfect) so good luck and have fun.

@griselbrother "all the time in the world" refers mainly to the fact that the card is indeed just merely a speed bump. You're right though that it is measured in how fast can I kill my opponent before they find an answer, but of course that means you have to provide a reasonably fast clock that can still beat out the possibility of having that one counterspell or bounce spell for one of your critical turns or the fact that it doesn't prevent your opponent from also casting creatures.

If we're purely talking that this is explicitly for PO matchups, there are a ton of additional ways to hate on this matchup that are hard for PO to deal with like Ouphe in non blue decks and maybe this card is just a nice additional option to shore up that matchup, but that and DPS are about the only places I would see that it would be okay.

@stormanimagus While I do state that those archetypes are indeed ones that may want this card, I really doubt that it's going to propel those decks high above the rest of the pack. That being said, I welcome that those archetypes have another flexible option.

People are talking like this is going to warp the format entirely and that just isn't true. The comparison to Damping Sphere is one of notoriety in that Damping Sphere was treated pretty much exactly the same way in regards to hype.

@blindtherapy yep, this is a thing that is worth noting.

I also made a small brain fart in this article, that I didn't realize til now. Brain farts are great.

I realized this morning (with my brain in vacation mode earlier this week when writing the article) that mentioning True-Name Nemesis in the first card is moot because it can't actually be targeted. My brain was focusing on the "damage" portion of it.
