Thieves' Fortune

A sifter card. Simple as can be. Is it worth paying 2U for? Not likely. What about U, with prowl? Then yes, but most Rogue decks want to be faster than this and mroe aggressive. They likely won't bother with card drawing, because they're too aggro. But in a more controlling Rogue build, if it exists, this could work nicely on merit of the amount of cards it lets you see.

Constructed- 2.5
Casual- 2.5
Limited- 3

Thieves' Fortune

I'm not sure if there's a real place for this card in constructed play. The ability seems like it would be best in combo decks, where you don't really have any space for lots of cheap Rogue creatures to deal damage. And Rogue creature decks don't need to play card selection when they have access to things that can actually disrupt the opponent. You could use it in limited, where changelings can help you dig for a bomb card.

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

Thief’s Fortune

            It is a solid spell, but still seems strictly worse than Impulse or Brainstorm. It wouldn’t make the cut in any constructed deck I can think of.


- Constructed: 2

            It will successfully fill any card sleeve you put it in.

- Casual: 2

            Moving along...

- Limited: 3

            It is actually playable in limited, but you aren’t going to windmill slam this card in your opponent’s face.
