Okay, okay, this card is not Rampant Growth.
That's all you need to know as far as
constructed play is concerned. For Ravnica
limited formats, Farseek is all the Rampant
Growth you're going to get, so unless you are
playing mono green (unlikely in limited in the
post-Champions-Snake-deck age) this will be a
card usually worth playing to get your other

It's amazing that this card is a common. It's
extremely powerful. In Legacy and Vintage with
dual lands being popular, this is sure to be a
great search card. Also, the new lands from
Ravnica that are dual color will be labeled as
both land types that they represent. This means
that you can use Farseek to go fetch those from
your deck. I'd expect this card to get a lot of
play in formats outside of Standard.
Unfortunately, in limited play, it's not nearly
A card that has some nice synergy with the new
Dual Lands - the great thing about the dual
lands is that they are considered, for instance,
Plains AND Mountain at the same time, which are
a huge advantage when it comes to searching for
them. Farseek lets you seek out more than just a
basic card, including one of the new Dual Lands.
A nice way to accellerate in the set, and it
sure seems like you'll want to be grabbing onto
all the accelleration you can get. Many of the
creatures in Ravnica are MASSIVE, and some have
matching casting costs. Farseek will undoubtedly
see a lot of limited play, and probably some

like - not necessary to bid - but don't look if
you want to be surprised at a release event!

hey peoples today we have the ravnica "better
than rampent growth, and maybe STE" Farseek.
im going to have a short review today because
there isnt much so say so...
all that farseek is, is a rampent growth for the
new shocklands (incase you didnt know it gets
those too). so this will definately be used in
block, but in T2? who knows...
constructed- 4/5 great duel searcher
limited- 4/5 mana accel is always nice
casual- 2/5 meh... there are more exciting ways
to get your land here
final thought- WILL be used in RBC green decks,
but besides that, probably not
No complaints here. If Rampant Growth was good,
then this card is almost decent. I'm not quite
following the logic on it being unable to go get
a Forest, but I'll just accept it and move on.
If Sakura-Tribe Elder isn't an option (such as
in limited) or you need something to replace it,
Farseek is your card. Otherwise, just ignore
this card and move on.

Farseek is going to greatly increase the power
of multi-color decks. Which might make me think
of making my sliver deck again. Ravnica to me
looks like now another Apocolypse block,
multi-color madness! You can search for about
any color mana except Forest, which is not a
problem, great for casual and other formats for
multi-color, if your mono then there is no need
for this card.
