Raging River

Raging River
Long card is long. Basically, whenever you attack, your opponent's blockers get put into 2 piles (chosen a la Do or Die) except with a few differences. First, they divide the piles, not you. Second, you gets to pick which pile each creature can be blocked by (your Commander Greven il-Vec gets blocked by one pile while your Qumulox gets blocked by the second pile).

This card is awesome. Seriously. It halves your opponent's blockers, and if you make the stacks correctly, it can force them to effectively sacrifice some important creatures via blocking. It's also a really cheap card mana-wise, making it a perfect fit for aggro decks. Now, it doesn't split the flying blockers up, but that's not a huge drawback (honestly, if it did split all blockers, this card would be crazay broken). Still, awesome card!

Pros: Allows some choice in blockers by attacker, halves available blockers, cheap
Cons: Doesn't split flying blockers, allows opponent to split blockers
Rating: 4.5/5
