    whenever you cycle something, it'll remove a threat - this can be defensively, or offensively...

    It's a pretty tricky card to play well. Eternal Dragon, Decree of Justice and Renewed Faith are probably the best white cyclers.

    It combines best with Wrath of God. The typical strategy against Wrath of God is for your opponent not to play very many creatures - they just put out one or two really powerful ones and wait for you to hit the reset button, then they just cast more of their creatures.

    Astral Slide doesn't let your opponent do this. You keep sliding out their creatures right before they attack and they'll evenually have to put down a third or fourth creature and then BAM, you nail four creatures with your Wrath instead of just two.
