Gift of the Gargantuan

Although it's clearly Naya-aligned, this card notably lacks the nearly-expected "creature with power 5 or greater" restriction, making it very likely to get you two cards every time you play it, like a sort of green version of Fact or Fiction. It's not for every green deck, but getting an extra land and a big creature to play with it - for just three mana! - can make all the difference. A solid setup card in limited or some midrange decks.

This is a card that gets me excited. When playing green you usually hope to draw one of two things in the early game. Those two things happen to be creatures and land. Green has always had the short straw on card draw. However with Harmonize and this, it seems Wizards is recognizing this. Three mana is just right. This card on second round with an mana elf first round is beautiful.

Gift of the Gargantuan


Constructed: Great card for creature base decks. Cost more than Commune with Nature, but you get to choose between lands or creature card.


Casual: Common that can help any big green creature deck.


Limited: Going into Naya this card is a must. Digging deaper into your deck for answers is always a good thing. I would still pick solid creatures and removal before this card. Hopefully it comes around the table in draft, unless someone else is into green.


Overall a great green sorcery.

Nice card and the right cost. Searches for both mana and creatures. Excellent digging card in limited, it can find you both threats/blockers and the mana to play them. In constructed (T2) I can easily see this getting play in mid-range style decks that don't have access to much card drawing. In casual its also not bad and I'd happily run it depending on the deck.

Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 3.5/5
Limited: 3/5
