Abu Ja’far from Arabian Nights is one of the deadliest Magic: The Gathering cards from the game’s first expansion set. Originally printed as a leper, this white human creature can potentially kill all of your opponent’s threats and can be a one-sided Wrath of God.

Creature – Human

Abu Ja’Far combos well with Blaze of Glory and Valar Made Real when on the defense, allowing you to destroy all of your opponents in this neat combat trick.
Alternatively you can strike out on the offensive with Abu Ja’far by enchanting it with Lure. Your opponent will be forced to block Abu Ja’far with all of their creatures. If you want to stay on color then it’s a good idea to run Abu Ja’Far in a deck alongside Odric, Master Tactician, which will allow you to choose how your opponent blocks.
