Eidolon of the Great Revel

Eidolon of the Great Revel

Does this card have a home in Boros Burn decks? If the forecasting Bg Devotion and Wb decks are real we could be facing down many -1/-1 effects which drastically reduce the power level of Young Pyromancer.

With Eidolon of the Great Revel every deck (except control) will be punished, sure many decks could just leave the card alone but by doing so it could in theory swing 10 times and just win you the game - thus you can cast the card and hold back resources until they deal with it.

EDIT: .......it seems bad vs G aggro, stuff I'll stick with YP$ :P.

I don't think this improves any matchup for us.

I came too the same conclusions (sadly) it doesn't do enough.

I'm still on my quest to find that magically MD'able card which is good against aggro and control which isn't already in the deck. . . . (I really need to stop trying things for the sake of trying things....)

I am as well. Unfortunately, having played burn for so long, I just have to accept I might lose to bad matchups. I really think we should look into tweaking our Big Boros lists with Banishing Light becoming the go to removal for nay deck with white.
