Card of the Day Reviews 


I remember this was highly used back in the day, but I have absolutely no idea why it was used.  I can't think of anything off hand, but I remember seeing a lot of it.

Today, it's pretty bad.  Six mana for recursive Seal of Fire?  If it cost a little less, maybe.  But since it cost so much and is only legal in t1 and t1.5, I'll have to mostly pass.

In limited, only good if you get something to combo it with - not real likely, honestly.

Limited: 1.5

Okay, here's another card I've never heard of until now. Hmm... it would seem this is an Artifact version of a combo card for constructed. Kind of like enchantment's version of reanimation. I suppose some of the old-timers here will know if this was ever utilized in any such deck.

In limited, it seems this card would be practically useless, unless you happened upon some amazing enchantment in your "The Dark" draft or sealed.

Constructed: 2

Limited: 1

Interesting. A card that lets you return an enchantment card back to your hand for reuse. Now, if there was only an enchantment worth using, then this _might_ be playable. As it is, though, I'd rather use a more all-purpose card to get it back, such as Gaea's Blessing. But if you manage to build a deck with a lot of enchantments, then just play Replenish.
In limited, I wouldn't play this, even if you have a killer enchantment you can reuse.
Constructed: 1.5

Skull Of Orm
At the time it was printed,  this card didn't see a whole lot of play.  If
it was still in extended now though,  you might see it on occasion, or you
might consider it yourself.  It can bring back your Parallax waves or seal
of cleansings,  your countered Recurring Nightmares, Animate deads,  etc. 
At only 3 mana for the initial play of it,  it has a lot of potential.  In
limited, it does require a couple sac enchantments or ones that naturally
expire to be good,  but if you have them,  it is very good.  Too bad it's
not in a more recent set.

Constructed 3.1
Limited 3.25

Never heard of it until now...However looks like a
poor argivian find or replenish, I wouldn't play it,
minus its continual...

In limited he looks .Like poop unless you have lots of
good enchantments
