Card Vote #10

This week's card vs. card vote is the duel of the discard spells. Blackmail costs one less mana but gives the opponent some more say in what you see, if they have more than three cards that is. Addle removes any say from the opponent but places a decision with you instead: which color to name? Choose correctly and you're in business. Choose wrong and you just overpaid for a bad Glasses of Urza effect.

Neither card has made it to the core set so far, so it's up to you which one gets that first show at fame and glory!
