Search For Tomorrow

The fact that it costs one more than Rampant Growth is offset by the fact that the land comes into play untapped. Either way, you're up one land and three of your lands are tapped. The real jewel here is the Suspend option, allowing you to make this your turn one play and potentially giving you four untapped lands on turn three instead. That probably makes this the most useful of land tutor spells in Standard. Not that that's saying much...

Casual- 3
Limited- 3.5

Search for Tomorrow

I haven't met too many people who noticed that this card is basically the same as the ancient Untamed Wilds but with the suspend ability. I like it since it provides a big burst of acceleration a couple of turns down the line for a nominal investment. In Standard, though, people took to playing Edge of Autumn (when Flagstones of Trokair and the Ravnica duals were still interacting) and then Into the North because it could also find Scrying Sheets. Search for Tomorrow is still a solid choice if what you need is lots of lands, but if Riftsweeper becomes popular you should probably consider something else.

Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 2/5
Limited: 2/5

Search for Tomorrow

I had a wacky GR Dragonstorm that ran green for the mana acceleration rather than blue for looking for Dragonstorm. It actually worked fairly well. This card was in it because uses up the otherwise useless mana on turn 1 and the suspend adds a storm count without using up mana.

In design, this card is pretty simple, but I find it unusually effective because suspending costs 1 mana and playing it in effect uses 2 mana because the land comes into play untapped. So unless you only got 2 mana sources out, this will be better than Rampant Growth, of course, not saying Rampant Growth is good or anything.

It's just good at what it does, which is why Mana Ramp uses it. However, decks that use it aren't Tier 1 right now, so what it does isn't extremely powerful. It's not even a fun card, just sets up infrastructure. In limited, it fixes up mana, and that's more important here due to lack of other means to do so.

Constructed: 2.5/5
Casual: 2/5
Limited: 3/5

Search for Tomorrow

Sorry for my long hiatus from card reviews, folks. Finals were a brutal assault on my mind and body lol. Anyway, we look at Search for Tomorrow, a useful land search and mana accelerator that has been seeing some play in the popular Big Mana decks. Being able to suspend this turn 1 can be an efficient way to start the game if Birds of Paradise isn't showing up. The use of this card is simple and straight-forward: get a turn 4 drop one turn sooner. Garruk Wildspeaker, I'm lookin' at you! Your average person won't hardcast this, since building a storm count and getting a free untapped land to use right away is more useful.

Constructed: 3.5/5
Limited: 4/5
