Card of the Day Reviews 


Library of Alexandria - Ah yes, the 10th card of the Power 9 set. This is how it works: Card advantage wins games. TA DA!

In Type 1, you usually have an insane amount of hand and library manipulation, so somewhere in there you'll have 7 cards in hand. Tap, draw, to add more to the insanity.

Constructed: 5
Limited: Yeah... I'd like to be in on this sealed or draft...

     The Power 9 is awesome and all, but this is the tenth power. This card has seen tons of play and it will continue too, cause its broken. Only playable in T1 of course, and restricted at that, its a great card thats good in control decks, and some/most combo decks. "Hulk Smash" plays one Library if I recall(no pun intended) which is one of the current archtypes I run in T1. I'm an avid fan of "Type Fun"! =)
    In limited its just a land, but if you get the chance to draft this in real life... your one lucky mo-fo! ;)
Constructed: 5
Limited: 1.5   


Library of Alexandria is one of the classic cards and it has that status for a reason. Card advantage wins games and the decks that can take advantage of the library for extra cards are the ones that need every card they can get. A very nice package. Still, decks that play fast won't be able to meet the Library's requirements so it is not for every deck.

Constructed - Card advantage is always good - 4.15

Limited - Not so good for this style of play - 1.75

PEZ - Well it is banned now so - 0.00


Library of Alexandria

I dont suppose this card is to bad. If your deck has a lot of card drawing
you could use these. And if you dont have a full hand, use it for mana. I'm
not really sure what else to say about this card. But check out the price,
