Card of the Day Reviews
Time Pro Tour
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. ;)
