At first, I tought this was a classic Skill Tester from Wizards of the Coast, a card that seems like it could be good but which is in fact TERRIBLE. I'm still not sure. In limited, I guess you could be playing black/green with lots of 1/1 green guys that you've manufactured with any number of different cards and that you don't mind sacrificing in order to make your non-creature cards cheaper to play...No, I just don't see it. This SOUNDS more like some kind of constructed strategy, making your non-creature spells cheaper while giving you a way to sacrifice creatures that you might actually WANT to put into your graveyard so that you can get them back out, or to use a creature ability that triggers when the guy goes to the yard.

Limited or constructed, this card is a big stretch either way, in my opinion.

This is a hard card to use. It makes your noncreature spells cheaper. Unfortunately, you also need creatures to take advantage of it. Now, the neat part is that for Vintage and Legacy, this card could be great for combo decks. Making all your spells cost two less is nothing to turn your nose up at. Unfortunately, the average deck probably can't take solid advantage of this card.

This card is very awkward, and I'm not quite sure if it is good or not. I'm leaning towards not, but I can definitely see someone coming up with something in the near future that could make it scary to see across the table from you. I'm going to give it a somewhat low rating, but I'll be more than willing to eat crow (or humble pie, whichever) when someone comes up with a killer deck for it.

I can't really cover this card for limited in depth -- it is just bad there.

Now, what the heck were they thinking...this thing is utter poop. I honestly can't think of any use for this card. It's almost as if they misprinted the text, it's so bad. ;)
