Ancient Stirrings
Rise of the Eldrazi was one of the most innovative sets in Magic's history - I personally hope that Battle for Zendikar brings some of that spirit, but regardless, a lot of Rise of the Eldrazi cards have a permanent place in Magic's history. It's easy for us to forget now, but in 2010 green was only starting to draw cards on a regular basis. That's what Ancient Stirrings is actually doing: it may not be the mass advantage we usually see in blue or black spells, but it's equally a tool for getting something you need from your deck at the time you need it, and since it will pretty much never be seen outside a deck with numerous suitable targets, the end result should always be satisfactory.

Today's card of the day is Ancient Stirrings which is a one mana Green spell that lets you add a colorless card from the top five cards of your library to your hand.  This is excellent in artifact, eldrazi, or non-basic land based decks and for the low cost is very efficient.  The onlt drawback is Green not usually being the color associated with colorless builds, but as acceleration with this as support it is a viable alternative to the more typical Blue/artifact designs.

Ancient Stirrings
An interesting card for those playing colorless, or just looking for a particular land. It's pretty self-explanatory, thus the short review, no complicated combos here.
Constructed: 4.5 (colorless heavy decks), 3 (everywhere else)
Casual: 3.5
Limited: 3
Multiplayer: 3 
EDH: 4
