Quite lame. In limited, where there's so much clash and so many harbingers, I guess you may want a way to re-scramble your opponent's library. Anywhere else, though, this is just junk. And even in Limited, it's a 23rd pick and even then only if you've already got some Knucklebone Witch or something.

Constructed- 1.1
Casual- 1.2
Limited- 1.3

Tuesday - Boggart Forager

This guy seems to be a decent card to be played. 1cc for a 1/1 is pretty straight forward. I see this guy being a good card against all of the new harbingers.

Constructed: 3
Casual: 2
Limited: 2

Boggart Forager

When I was younger, there was a card in Alliances called Soldier of Fortune that was similar to Boggart Forager. There was an urban legend around that guy that apparently people were putting him in Vintage decks against opponents who had power but no card sleeves to force them to risk damaging their Black Lotuses by shuffling excessively, and gaining a psychological advantage. I doubt it was true, considering Gorilla Shaman was in the same set and could destroy Black Lotuses outright. I can think of one thing that Boggart Forager can do, though, that Soldier of Fortune can't: cause people who use a Harbinger to shuffle away the nasty creature or spell they just found, and that's sometimes important enough in limited games for him to get points.

Constructed: 1/5
Casual: 1/5
Limited: 2/5

Boggart Forager

A 1/1 for 1 mana with a useless ability is completely unplayable. It's not even playable in some sort of combo deck that requires infinite sacrifice because Mogg Fanatic has no mana cost for the ability and Boggart Forager's ability does nothing even when done an infinite times.

Constructed: 1/5
Casual: 1/5
Limited: 1/5
