Quote from Daracaex »Bitter Ordeal. Praetor's Grasp is more flexible, but less powerful in its use. One way to use it is to get rid of a single card, which is often not enough to make much difference. If you use it against another black player, maybe it becomes an unreliable tutor (no guarantee they have the card you want), but the card does go back to its owner's graveyard if you cast it.
Bitter Ordeal, cast after a board wipe, can go in and gut multiple people's decks, or just really shut down a combo deck. If I'm against combo, I think I'd like the ability to remove their redundancies more than I'd like the tutor.
Quote from MRdown2urth »My buddy and I just were talking about how good PG is, and we had different angles. He plays against more combo decks and uses it defensively. I always end up swiping something useful for myself.
It's one of my favorite black cards, but it sounds like its use is meta-dependent.

Quote from twinfrodo »I don't think Lily is actually behind anything, and I think it's a red haring that Jace's mind is coming up with because he doesn't trust Lilliana. The Angels are leaving villages in ashes. Ashes equals no bodies. No bodies equals no zombies. What would Lilly gain from this? I by no means think Lily is a saint, but she doesn't seem like a conqueror type villain. She cares about power but it is more about personal power for her. The ability to stay young, the power to do what she wants without anyone getting in her way.
