Also, while Dead Weight doesn’t see much competitive play, it actually is quite good in Dimir Control decks in Pauper. But isn’t Pauper more of a Magic Online format? While competitively Pauper is bigger online, there are becoming more and more paper Pauper tournaments at local game stores. This is a very good common to have around.
It’s a very simple Enchantment, one Black mana to give the enchanted creature -2/-2. It’s strong early game removal, but it’s also a nice way to weaken a bigger creature that might be out of range of your other removal spells. It’s also a way to bring a bigger creature down to the level of your creatures. Dead Weight is definitely not a dead card, even if it doesn’t currently see Standard play.
While Dead Weight isn’t the most exciting common, it’s interesting to see some players stocking up on copies. This is definitely a card to watch for and get ahold of as you see them, especially in foil. As it has been a part of many draft decks, there are plenty of copies to go around.
