A better Argivian Archaelologist, IMHO.  This card had abuse written all over it when it was t2, but sadly, no true way to abuse her. 

In Extended, I think she could be in some weird rogue deck.  If you can protect her, she's beats.  I personally like her and Hesitation.  I always thought that could be a vicious little combo if you get things going.  Then again, I'm the guy who played dancing gnomes with Ertai, Wizard Adept and top seeded a PTQ with the deck.  I like weird little combos, especially if they can go into a recursive counterspell loop.  I say on the outside that I hate blue players, but on the inside, I am a trickster mage at heart.

In limited, it depends on what you open.  If you have something that can be recursively abused, why not.  Especially if you get an Armadillo Cloak.  Once they kill the critter with the cloak, get it back and go back to down.  It's kinda like a rancor, only not as good. :)

Constructed: 2.5

This card was Wizards of the Coasts way of immortalizing Hanna as a Legend in their card set. Unfortunately, they didn't pack much punch into her. A constructed deck would have to be fairly specialized to make her playable. Now, there is a fun enchantment deck out there, so she could work well with that to get back important enchantments that have ended up in the grave.

In limited, you'd have to be playing one heck of an important enchantment to make her work for you, and she'd have to be in like color, too. But generally, not playable in draft or sealed.

Constructed - 2
Limited - 1.5

A great recursion card. I've seen a quite effective deck using this card to recur enchantments like Parallax Wave. Also gets your stuff back if they kill it. A nice trick card, along with a quite effective card at times.
In limited, I usually don't play many enchantments or artifacts, so this isn't very useful for me. Your mileage may vary.
Constructed: 3
Limited: 1.5

I don't really like most of the Legends, but this is
actually ok, But Argivian Find seems better IMO.
Replenish too.  She is however reusable.

Limited, mostly poop unless you have a good
enchantment or artifact? (Who knows)

Contructed: 2
Limited: 1.5


One of the cheaper legends with a fairly tap ability. Not game breaking except in specific decks that use her as a combo card but she is also vulnerable to burn. Overall a nice card to have but nothing special.

Constructed: In the right deck you can abuse her ability to some extent although even then she is no powerhouse – 2.25

Limited: You probably won’t have a whole lot of artifacts or enchantments in your deck and no good combo uses if you do. As a straight creature she is very weak – 1.25
