Ooze Garden
This one's a real head-scratcher the first time you see it, especially when you realize you can't use it as a combat trick. Once you start flicking through your collection (or searching Gatherer for "comes into play" and "leaves play"), it looks more and more fun. Primal Forcemage plus Pandemonium? Yes, please. Stalking Vengeance? Neat. Doubling Season? Excellent. Angelic Chorus? Sure, why not? Definitely a good card for a theme deck.
Constructed: 1/5
Casual: 4/5

Ooze Garden


Constructed: The last line on this cards text hosed it. 'Play this ability only any time you could play a sorcery.'


Casual: The only reason I would use this card is if your creature has been Pacifism.


Limited: Not going to pick it or even try to use it for sealed deck. I prefer to use my extra creatures for the Devour ability.


Overall why would I sac a creature for another creature that is a Ooze. If it was not for that last line...


Constructed: 1

Casual: 2

Limited: 1




BeJose Ooze Garden
Interesting Johnny card. It interacts nicely with persist cards, essentialy giving you 2 creatures for the price of one (and 1G). In limited this is can be an interesting choice. Splash for it in a Grixis deck and you can get even more use out of Unearth creatures. In standard I don't see it being competive enough to really make an impact, same going for the older formats. If this could happen at instant speed it would be absolutly broken however.
Constructed: 1.5/5
Casual: 3.5/5 (If you can build around it)
Limited: 1.5 -3/5 (Again, it CAN be good in a grixis deck but it's largely useless)
