Red deck wins is often one of the most popular decks in standard. Cheap burn spells, aggressive creatures and hasty threats are known for stealing games from opponents.
The mono red special received a powerful tool in Journey into Nyx. This tool, A pillar on a stick, is Eidolon of the Great Revel. It combines two powerful cards, Pyrostatic Pillar and Bear Cub to make… well, a pillar on a stick.
Eidolon of the Great Revel is very powerful against control decks. It taxes them, burning their users each time a spell with converted mana cost 3 or less is cast.
There is a downside however, and it is rather dangerous. The Eidolon is partying so hard, he does not care who casts the spell. If you cast a spell with converted mana cost 3 or less, while he is on the battlefield, you will be in for quite the shock- or should I say Bolt?
So, there you have it. Eidolon cares not from where the party flows… only that it flows!
