Graceful Reprieve

As someone who is perennially hoping for Angelic Renewal to be reprinted, Graceful Reprieve caught my attention straight away. Sure, it's only a one-time effect, but it's a decent response to removal, especially if the creature in question has a comes-into-play ability (Mulldrifter!). For now, Saffi Eriksdotter and Adarkar Valkyrie may keep this out of constructed decks, since they offer a good creature in addition to the resurrection ability, but keep an eye on this one. You may yet get blindsided by it in a limited event, or even at FNM.

Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 3/5
Limited: 4/5

Graceful Reprieve

In constructed and casual, it'll end up as a bad Momentary Blink. It's a rare sight to see anyone play Momentary Blink right now so I don't see the use for this card. It's better than Momentary Blink against a Wrath of God, but that's pretty much it.

In limited, it could get played because there's no Momentary Blink. It's actually pretty good if you have a sufficient number of come into play abilities.

Constructed: 1.5/5
Casual: 1.5/5
Limited: 2.5/5
v0rac10u5 Graceful Reprieve
This card has a lot of constructed potential with evoke cards such as Mulldrifter and Shriekmaw. It may not see a lot of play until Momentary Blink rotates out of Standard. It is a solid trick in limited, provided you have something worth saving.

- Constructed: 3
- Casual: 3
- Limited: 4
