Living Wish
The ultimate tool for creature control decks, obviously good in its day in Odyssey/Torment/Judgment block constructed, still very good in Extended.
This card doesn't help that much in limited, first because it's rare and secondly, because you already have your best creatures in your deck.
Sometimes, in limited, this card would help you reach a card removed from the current game.

Living Wish - Monday

This card is always interesting. I wasn't a big fan of the wishes. The mechanic just seemed out of place. Also, when casual guys got a hand on these, things got a little crazy. They created some hard to explain situations. However, Burning Wish, Living Wish, and Cunning Wish all seemed to get played. The others just came up short and were either too hard to use or too expensive to cast.
