Well, this card is definitely more useful in a limited environment than in a constructed one. Even with that being said, it's not a top priority to draft one of these up. If you are going to be into three colors you can wait and take one of these with a mid-pick. Somewhere in the range of 8-10 is good. In constructed there are simply too many other good chooses to help smooth your mana.

Constructed: 1.5
Casual: 2
Limited: 2.5

I really like this card in Rav limited play. It serves as accelleration, and at the same time can ping your opponent by adding mana to their mana pool at inappropriate times. Sometimes it comes back to bite you in the butt, but it's usually worth the risk until they get something on the board to drain the mana through.

I don't see it being played in Classic (Type 2), but I suppose it could get used in casual environments.

Constructed - 2
Casual - 3
Limited - 3.5
