Yummy!

 

This card has rightfully received a lot of hype as soon as it was revealed. It presents the Boros player with a veritable Swiss army knife.

Burn your opponent for the win? Check

Set up an alpha strike on your turn by tapping down his team at the end of his? Check

Mess up an Epic Experiment combo deck (because you know there will be one) ? Check

It’s useful in just about any situation and will probably see a decent amounts of modern play as well, I believe. It can be HUGE in decks featuring Dark Confidant as it only makes you take 2 if flipped and does soooo much more for those decks in return. It doesn’t hit the guys with Hexproof, but there is a nifty little artifact that was recently spoiled that takes care of that little problem:

Looking to deal with Invisible Stalker and Geist of Saint Traft?

Aurelia’s Fury will probably be jammed in every possible deck that can support it, kind of like Bonfire of the Damned was.
Remember how big that was? (note: and is becoming big again)

Also, I expect it to be in high demand in the very near future, what with it being a Mythic and all.

Don’t delay, get your playset today!
