Card of the Week – Citadel Siege

Wow. This card is just wow.


My girlfriend and I had been playing Magic non-stop for months preparing for local tournaments and we had both gotten a little burned out. For a refresher, we both purchased packs from M15, Khans, Fate, and Dragons and built 40 card decks from the contents. Looking at my white, as well as Citadel Siege, it was a no-brainer.

Once tied up in duels, I played the enchantment and it happened. The wow. Citadel Siege hit play, I named Khans and it was on. Creatures were doubling then tripling in strength in just turns. Wow. I thought it was a fluke. Then in game two, I played it again. More wow. After a few more games, It had gotten to the point where I didn’t want to play the spell but it was too good not to. By the time the evening was over, she was refusing to play against this deck.

I’m not sure how well this enchantment does in Standard but in limited, it’s wow. I still have yet to to name Dragons to see how well that works, my girlfriend won’t give me the chance. This card even has a reasonable casting cost and price tag. The thought of two of these in play is blowing my mind.
