Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale. 1 is bad. 3 is average. 5 is great.
Casual: 3/5 (if you can figure out a way to make an Owling Mine or Underworld Dreams deck with white, it might help)
White’s dearth of card advantage has generally been a sore spot for a while, and this was apparently an experiment: give white cards, but in a way that isn’t actually going up in cards. This is one of those massive “risk” cards in serious formats, as any opponent should be able to take full advantage of that card draw before you get a chance to do anything with it. But if you have few other options, this can help you play politics and get a bit of extra gas in a pinch. I’m still not a fan, though, as it’s a potentially massive swing for an opponent that might see you wholly unable to make anything of it.
Constructed: 1 (white has trouble making this a net advantage without dipping into other colors)
