Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
not a staple in constructed environments, it can
certainly have it's uses in drafts and sealed
decks. I wouldn't build a deck around it, but a
1/1 Flyer that can rearrange the top cards of your
library for a decent cost in limited is worth
playing if you are already Blue, especially if you
are working on flying for your deck.
Sage Owl, currently
in the 7th Edition main set, is a nice creature
in limited and definitely has its uses. It's a
1/1 Blue Flyer for 1U, and as a bonus, you get
to rearrange the top 4 cards of your library to
make your draws more advantageous. In
constructed, it really doesn't see much play,
but I'd consider it a 3rd to 4th pick in a draft
if you are going blue, or if you're pushing
Constructed - 1.5
Limited - 3.5
Not a very good
card. About the only thing this has going for it
is the fact
that it's a bird. And that doesn't even help much
anymore, considering the
fact that Stormscape Familiar, the reason to play
blue in your bird decks,
rotated out last month. Of course, if you're
playing what I like to call
"Type Kitchen Table," this doesn't matter to you
In limited, it flies, and it sets up your next 4
draws. Not much more to say
This isn't a constructed card at all.
In limited however this is a great 1/1 flyer.
Organizing your top cards can save you from making
you think your mana flooded, or vise versa. Also
it lets you take key cards and bring them to the
top technically getting you turns ahead draw wise.
It basically improves your draws and flies for 1.
Not a bad pick if your playing blue.
In sealed... well there is no 7th sealed. But in
sealed if there was one, if your playing blue
you'll be playing this guy. Drawing more
creatures, and key spells is really good.
A 1/1 flyer isn't bad either.
This card is cute. There have been several variations of this card through the years. The one thing that they have in common is that they all sit in players' useless card boxes. Truthfully, it's not
completely useful, but there are better cards these days to
achieve what you need it to do.
In limited, it helps that is is a flier, but it is a bit small. It can help you more here though with setting up your next couple of plays.
