Hi folks.  It’s time for another COTD and this one happens to be very enjoyable!  Reap and Sow is a mana killer’s dream come true and has been finding its way into a few decks.  Let’s take a look.


Reap and Sow


Cost: 5

Civilization: Fire/Nature

Type: Spell

Rules Text:

·         (This spell is put into your mana zone tapped.)

·         Choose a card in your opponent's mana zone and put it into his graveyard. Then put the top card of your deck into your mana zone.


This card is well priced at 5 mana.  It can be compared to cards like Ultimate Force, which net you an extra two mana.  The best part is that this new version is even better.  For the same cost as Ultimate Force, you get the same mana advantage and in doing so your opponent loses 1 mana.  You basically get a boost in mana plus control.  Think of how frustrating it will be for your opponent when you get to destroy a multi-civ card in his/her mana zone or eliminate a key civilization from his/her mana zone, while getting a free mana at the same time.  It’s crazy!


As far as deck construction, this card will go really well in a Fire/Nature agro deck.  You’ll quickly be able to summon your fatties while setting your opponent back one turn (mana-wise).  It will also do fairly well in a mana destruction deck, although in my honest opinion, Reap and Sow is just too slow.  There are already enough mana hate cards and this one is one of the more expensive ones. 


Well… this card is fairly straightforward so it pretty much speaks for itself.  Give it a shot and count the number of times you get an instant advantage.


The Good:  Mana advantage plus mana control all in one.


The Bad:  Everyone’s first instinct is to go with a mana destruction deck but this card generally turns out to be a little slow.


The Ugly:  (This card is too solid to merit anything in this section.)


Constructed Rating: 4/5 –  This is a very solid card with an excellent combination of effects. 


Limited Rating: 3/5 – This card might be a little slow in limited but it’s effective nonetheless.


Please feel free to post your comments, questions, and/or objections on the Message Board and I’ll be more than happy to respond.  Happy dueling!
