Dark Heart of the Wood



Sacrifice a Forest: You gain 3 life.

One of Magic’s cult classics back in the day. Never had the opportunity to play one myself, but it’s basically the enchantment version of Zuran Orb: Eat a useless land and get some health back. Fun when comboed with Necropotence!

Limited: Eh, it’s just life gain. It just keeps you alive, it won’t help you win. 1.5 out of 5

Constructed: Powerful in decks running cards that sacrifice life points for some powerful effect, usually card drawing. Like, oh, I dunno, Necropotence! So...are there such cards in today’s Standard? No? *sigh* 2 out of 5.

Casual: Like I said, a mini classic. Greybeards will love it, as will Golgari fans. 3.5 out of 5.


Dark Heart of the Wood

Cute. Flavorful. Nostalgic. Useless. It’s even worse than a “win more” card, it’s a “lose less” card. And you sacrifice lands to do so. If I’m sacrificing the thing that gives me mana to play spells, it better be for something good. This isn’t it.

Constructed- 1
Casual- 2.5
Limited- 1
