Now, we talk about the REAL poop.  Before, I was using the word poop because I wanted to gratuitously use the word poop.  Today, it is poop.  We're talking a bowl-full of the brown stuff.

In constructed, I can not ever think of a time that this would have been good.  It's just absolute garbage.

In limited, it's not as bad.  Swapping your pile for their goodness is good.  I would play it.

Constructed: 1
Limited: 4
Current Price:
$0.95
Poop Rating:  More than a bowlfull.

Oooo....I had never heard of this card before. Interesting! You could really have fun with this. It's most likely sideboarded to bring in, but you could really mess with someone's table when you trade your nothing for their something.

In limited, definitely play it.

Constructed: 3

Limited: 4

Thursday - Legerdemain
 
I know most of the COTD crew will have to look this one up :). I chose it becaus it shares a theme with yesterday's card, that being an exchange of permanents. And with a lot of people running out to the stores today to take back what they didn't want for something they do want, this card seemed appropriate.
 
This is a stronger version of Juxtapose. You can exchange an artifact or a creature with one of your opponents. The casting cost on this is pretty high, however - you have to pay 4 mana, have a creature or artifact out yourself, and have your opponent have a better creature or artifact out for this to be playable. And most of the time, it's not worth it.
 
In limited, I can see this squeaking in if you've had a bad draft, or if your opponent has a creature you can't deal with any other way. But that's about it.
 
Constructed: 1
Limited: 1.25

Meaning slight of hand (or agility of hand),  this card is fun,  but has
several problems when you compare it to something like gilded drake or
donate.  It's more expensive,  they have to have a card of the appropriate
type,  and most importantly,  you lose not only the legerdemain card itself
in the casting,  but whatever cards you give them.  And since control magic
or treachery is generally better,  this card quickly becomes an expensive, 
constricted-use donate.  Far more interesting in limited,  since they always
have creatures,  and your elf for their fatty is a worthwhile board change.
limited: 3.5
constructed: 2

     With such a odd name, it seems pretty simple. I don't think its a very good card since its so expensive for such a limited ability. Also its a sorcery. Only burning wishable...

     In limited, it could be good giving them your weaker creature for their bomb is always nice.

     In sealed, its even better since taking their bomb most likely means winning you the game, and making them fearful to play it next game.

Constructed: 2
Limited: 3.5
Sealed: 3.5
