We are quickly approaching the end of this review.  Just one day left, after today.  Today we get to talk about White.   It seems that White gets the most bang for its buck in Innistraad.    Whit is full of card quality in both the constructed and limited environments.  Since, this is only a small review I will only cover a handful of these cards.


My first pick is

Nevermore    1ww
Enchantment     Rare
As Nevermore enters the battlefield, name a nonland card.
The named card can’t be cast.
“By the law of Avacyn, the following thoughts, words, and deeds are henceforth disallowed.”

While the days of Pithing Needle are dead, this is still a strong card in constructed.  If nothing else you should see some side board play.  Did I mention the word cast includes being cast from anywhere?  That is right if something allows you to cast spells form a place other than your han. Nevermore stops it.  It doesn’t stop cards from being” put” into play though.


Divine Reckoning 2ww
Sorcery     Rare
Each player chooses a creature he or she controls. Destroy the rest.
Flashback 5{W}{W}
Survival of the purest.
Illus. Greg Staples #10/264


OK I know this is like an overpriced balance.  But I like it.  Why do I like?  I want to build a personal incarnation deck with it.  Does the card have potential? Yes, I believe it is feasible for a control deck.  It even has some potential in some casual deck that focus on recursion.  They are pretty much set in their ways though and they work just fine.

Elite Inquisitor    ww
Creature – Human Soldier     Rare
First strike, vigilance
Protection from Vampires, from Werewolves, and from Zombies.
“No matter how many I kill, there are always more to hunt. It makes me smile just to think about it.”
Illus. Jana Schirmer & Johannes Voss #13/264    2/2

This guy is pretty amazing for 2 white mana.  He is a solid card in constructed. He gets even better in limited when you consider how many werewolves and vampires there are.

Champion of the Parish    w
Creature – Human Soldier     Rare
Whenever another Human enters the battlefield under your control, put a +1/+1 counter on Champion of the Parish.
“I stand for every cobbler, tanner, and fool in this town–and they stand for me.”
Illus. Svetlin Velinov #6/264    1/1

This guy is pretty darn good for the weenie deck.  On turn 2 he is a possible 3/3.  The fact that he grows makes him even better.  I expect this guys price to climb. to sit around 7.00

Mikaeus, the Lunarch xw
Legendary Creature – Human Cleric     Mythic Rare
Mikaeus, the Lunarch enters the battlefield with X +1/+1 counters on it.
{T}: Put a +1/+1 counter on Mikaeus.
{T}, Remove a +1/+1 counter from Mikaeus: Put a +1/+1 counter on each other creature you control.
Illus. Steven Belledin #23/264    0/0

Mikaeus is quite possibly the most playable (not best) card in the set.  You can splash him into any color you want.  He is a must pick in a draft.  you just can’t afford to have him in your opponents card pool.  He boasts some serious card quality.   He is a, not so good answer to titans for a weenie deck but he is a start.  The card quality he brings to your deck is some good tech.  Who doesn’t want a turn 2 dude that grows and gives +1/1 counters away?


Well There yoiu have the key cards I see in white.  In my opinion white is clearly stronger than the other colors.

Tomorrow I will look at everything else.  Sunday I am toying with just a list of the top ten cards from Innistrad.
