Hi folks. It’s time for another COTD and
this one happens to be very enjoyable! Reap
and Sow is a mana killer’s dream come true
and has been finding its way into a few
decks. Let’s take a look.
Reap and Sow
(This spell is put into your mana zone
Choose a card in your opponent's mana zone
and put it into his graveyard. Then put the
top card of your deck into your mana zone.
This card is well priced at 5 mana. It can
be compared to cards like Ultimate Force,
which net you an extra two mana. The best
part is that this new version is even
better. For the same cost as Ultimate
Force, you get the same mana advantage and
in doing so your opponent loses 1 mana. You
basically get a boost in mana plus control.

cards and this one is one of the more
Well… this card is fairly straightforward so
it pretty much speaks for itself. Give it a
shot and count the number of times you get
an instant advantage.
Mana advantage plus mana control all in one.
Everyone’s first instinct is to go with a
mana destruction deck but this card
generally turns out to be a little slow.
(This card is too solid to merit anything in
4/5 – This is a very solid card with an
excellent combination of effects.
3/5 – This card might be a little slow in
limited but it’s effective nonetheless.
