The Traveler and the Burning Abyss
Of the five Burning Abyss (BA) cards, this is the

You need to have BA's sent to the graveyard
and you need to have set it for a turn.
This is like a weaker version of Rekindling.
Card Advantage – 2/5 ; It's a chainable card (later
in the turn) that can net you 1 or 2 floaters.
You rarely plus out of it though.
Speed – 2/5 ; Traps are slow when it comes to
Traditional – 1/5
Advanced – 2.5/5
