Mtg Card Commentary – Peer Pressure
A critical analysis and discussion of an Onslaught rare that can really steal the show.
Taking control of an opponent’s creatures is always something that’s amusing. They worked hard to save up the mana to play their creatures and then you steal them away. There are many cards that do this, but perhaps none is more interesting than Peer Pressure.
This card allows you to take control of all creatures of a certain type, as long as you control more creatures of that type than any other player. That means you pay the (fairly) standard cost of four mana and you can grab many creatures! This card doesn’t target things either, which allows you to get around things like protection and shroud.
However, the big problem with this card is that sometimes your opponent will have a deck where none of their creatures share types with the creatures in you deck. That restricts this card pretty heavily. However, this can be overcome. If you use a changeling deck, you will always have creatures of every type. This will allow you to take control of any creatures you want. It allows you supreme control in the game.
This is just a quick review today, so I’ll just say thanks for reading! Feel free to comment! I’d love to hear what you think of this card and any strategies you have for using it!
