Islands don't untap during their controllers' untap steps.
Choke is not nearly as "evil" as Blood Moon. Blood Moon affects all non basic lands (i.e. any Modern deck that plays more than one color). Choke only affects islands and should thus be strongest against mono blue decks. The most popular mono blue deck in Modern is Merfolk and even they have enough "other lands" (Mutavault, Oboro, Minamo) and Aether Vial to still play cards under Choke. Also, Choke lands on turn three at the earliest. At this time, Merfolk should have deployed quite some threads. Thus it is not this card's power level is not nearly close to Blood Moon.
Nice card but don't listen people saying this card is bad for modern or abusive. It's a nice side card against deck playing blue but even merfolk (which is a heavy island deck) has way to deal with it.
they say choke is bad for modern cause punishs blue decks for playing basics .. im sry this card punishs CC mana.I consider less abussive then Blood Moon that can punish fare decks .. while choke punishs only greedy decks that wanna get 3 islands at turn 4!
Choke is the most abusive card against blue decks ever printed. So frustrating.
