A card that was in my casual deck. When a
creature goes to the graveyard, you can pay 1 to
mill yoursely to find another creatures. Combine
this with (a) ways to sacrifice your creatures,
(b) token generators, and (c) Gaea's Blessing,
and you have a tight little package.
Outside of casual, though, it's just too slow.
Even in limited, the mill requirement will force
you to deck instead of reaping creature
This card is neat. It's not overly amazing by
any means, but it does have some uses. Knowing
what I know now, I might have played this card
more when it was constructed legal back in the
day against all the control decks that were
running around. It allows you to keep your hand
stocked full of threats.
As for limited, I'm not exactly sure how this
card would work out. It's not bad, but at the
same time, many of your spells are important in
limited, so this isn't such a quick fix. On the
other hand, if you had a LOT of creatures in
your limited deck, you could probably take
advantage of it.
Well it s a hermit Druid for creatures and it s
an enchantment so it can get hosed pretty easily
in today s casual environment. Plus it costs 5
mana for its first activation cost. It has a
nice tutor effect but your creatures would have
to be dying pretty quickly to activate this. If
your creatures are dying quickly then it
probably means that you re losing. And if you re
losing, throwing away a bunch of helpful
instants and other cards to get a few creatures
to temporarily save your life points isn t the
In limited, it s kind of like playing Demonic
Consolation: you re burning through your very
thin library of cards for, in this instance, a
useless purpose. Don t pick it.
Here is a very interesting card that is in my
opinion obviously a combo card wanting to be
abused. You can use this card to make little
creatures into big monsters, empty you library
to go for infinite turn combos, and a multitude
of other effects. The bad side of using this
particular card is that it’s just not as good as
other cards like Oath of Druids.

Back in the days of Masques-block constructed,
there were people who wanted to make this card
work for them. Those people are still at work;
if this ability put a creature into play then
the ability would truly be powerful. As it is,
it's just not that terribly exciting; at best it
might serve as a sideboard-type card. In
limited, I recall this card being at least
reasonably useful; existing in the same block as
other cards with Fading gave it some value.

Just kidding. In limited this is a card you
COULD try in a sealed deck, but definitely
not in draft.
In the land of wacky
constructed decks, this card has “combo”
written all over it, maybe a little better
than average in a very focused deck.
