RCotD #84

Random Card of the Day #84:

Meekstone - 3
Creatures with power 3 or greater don't untap during their controllers' untap steps.

Initial thoughts:

This card has it's place in history. It was actually the artifact that allowed control decks to dominate very early on in the game. Back then everyone was using Dark Rituals to cheat out Juzám Djinn or a Juggernaut. This and Winter Orb.

But as for the card currently? I think it could perform fairly well in Standard today. Even it's rarity might hold up. I'm somewhat tempted to compare it to Norn's Annex, but it's really on it's own level entirely. This and other tap effects such as Feeling of Dread or Tideforce Elemental can be a real pain against some opponents.

There's not much to say about this card. It permanently taps your opponents creatures that are problems, almost like a mass Claustrophobia/Narcolepsy. 4/5
