The last pack I posted was super subpar. This one is super awesome! The pick here is between Mox, Skullclamp, and Jitte. Now, for some people they might automatically think “it has to be mox”, but skullclamp and Jitte go in so many decks–and make those so many decks so much better with them in it–that they are worth picking over a mox, or at least to be considered. I wouldn’t fault you for taking Mox here, but I don’t think it would be my choice.

Depending on my mood for that day, it’s between either Clamp or Jitte. Clamp has the potential to have a higher ceiling if I can pick a ton of X/1s, either as utility creatures or in an aggressive strategy. Using a colorless artifact to draw through your entire deck gives these decks card advantage they usually won’t be able to obtain. That being said, Jitte will do awesome in those decks, along with the variety of other decks that have creatures. Jitte is stupid dumb. Gun to my head, I think I pick Jitte here, but picking Skullclamp is certainly a fine choice here as well.

So, what would you choose? Leave a comment and let us know!
