RCotD #134

Random Card of the Day #134:

Plane - Agyrem
Whenever a white creature dies, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control at the beginning of the next end step.
Whenever a nonwhite creature dies, return it to its owner's hand at the beginning of the next end step.
{CHAOS}: Whenever you roll {CHAOS}, creatures can't attack you until a player planeswalks.

Initial thoughts:

I normally don't play Planechase. It's a wacky environment that I didn't like because of it's favoritism towards specific colors. With the exception of several Planes, of course.

I kind of wish I was more into Planechase, if only to make a fun environment to play it. But even still, at two dollars a card, I would much rather get a few of the card I wanted for my Riku of Two Reflections EDH deck.

Yes, it's amazing in a white deck. Even in a nonwhite deck it's still pretty useful since it goes back to your hand. Assuming of course, there's no replacement effect going such as Wheel of Sun and Moon or Leyline of the Void.

It is, effectively, a color-specific Lifeline. Without the "if another creature is on the battlefield" clause so you can still get your creatures back after a Day of Judgement.

Still a good card. It does what it's supposed to. The {CHAOS} roll is a little wacky as he seems like a Moat at first, but really no creatures can attack you. There really is no "creatures can't attack you" enchantment that doesn't have a drawback or exception to it (Solitary Confinement comes close but it still doesn't stop things like annihilator or loss of life.), but the closest thing it comes to is Blazing Archon--which to be fair, it is nine-mana for it's effect.

Still a great Plane for multiplayer play, even if it does favor colors. 4/5
