Hey it’s Commander Comments, an homage to Aaron Forsythe’s Random Card of the Day – I click “random” on the Gatherer and talk about the potential uses of one of the thousands and thousands of possible cards in our beloved format. And today…

Today’s card is Radiant’s Judgment. Cycling matters more with Amonkhet, so this may see some more love in the format. The problem is that white already has stupidly good removal with Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, and Oblivion Ring. Radiant’s Judgment has a drawback, technically; it only hits big creatures. Three mana to kill target nonutility creature seems good to me. And if you are desperate for another card you can cycle it away. This card has more game than we credit it. For inspiration I think about Doran, the Siege Tower and running cards like Repentance, Wave of Reckoning, Fell the Mighty, Retribution of the Meek, and Solar Tide. Who needs power anyway? The great part is that Redirect effects can stunt you but not hit your creatures.
