This Week's Card Selector

A decent way for blue to deal with a Squirrel Nest or other problem enchantment without counterspelling it. It can also move enchantments onto untargetable permanents. Not the best card for blue, but a nice niche card.
This card gets a lot better in the OTJ limited formats. There are a lot of enchantments that like to target lands, as well as a few other creature enchantments that are worth taking. Not something that would make me play blue, but I'd play it main if I was playing blue.
Constructed: 2.4
Limited: 4



Forget about constructed all together for this except OBC.  It has a few uses there.

This card is ridiculous in limited.  If you're playing blue, if you're playing anything even mildly slacky, play this card.  It's just the bomb.  Stops really nasty stuff like Squirrel Nest and Caustic Tar.  Swtich around enchantments like Kirtar's Desire and Seton's Desire.  Better in Sealed than Draft, but not to be overlooked in either environment.  This card will really screw with an opponent.  I've had people pull enchantments like nest and tar for game 2 after seeing this card - people HATE getting their stuff stolen - especially at instant speed.

Although not really a main deck style card I have found this to be powerful in OBC draft where there seem to be several decent enchant creature cards. I often main deck it as a 22d or 23rd card, sometimes higher depending on what else I've seen. In Constructed it is a decent sideboard card.
Limited- 2.5
Constructed- 2






Aura Graft is a great card, definitely a post-spell counterspell. Great in
blue white when it can move your Kirtar's Desire around for you, or your
Unquestioned Authority - but it's awesome in stealing good enchantments from
your opponent, like Chamber of Manipulation.

A sideboard card at best.  As a general rule enchantments that target a permanent have always been fragile with only a few exceptions.  Since most good players don't play with local enchantments... there won't be many targets for your Aura Graft making it a bad card to use.

I have never cast this card.  Its a very situational card that is usually
very powerful when used (as are most situational cards).  A big sideboard
card against green's Squirrel Nest, Elephant Guide, etc.  A 2 in both
Limited and Constructed as though it is powerful, its usually not very
