1 being the worst. 3 ...
5 is the highest rating.
Dreams is an excellent, well balanced card,
that's going to see itself found in a lot of
broken, unbalanced decks. Green somehow became
the "combo" color (along with blue)
and I'm sure someone (like my brother) will find
a way to torture the hell out of this card and
make it unfair. In limited, this turns excess
lands into cards you want to play again, and
also helps you put cards into your graveyard
that you would prefer to have there.
Rating: I'm sorry, I don't recall.
Dreams hasn't impressed me much yet. I do,
however, see potential. If it gets the right
cards (or someone just notices them) that I don't
currently see it having, it could become an
essential part of a deck, playing a very limited
role. I'm giving it a tentative 2, though
ask me in a year or two and it might be a 3 or 4.
is an excellent card for most any green deck as it
lets you recycle cards at a relatively low price.
Suddenly extra lands can be Blastoderms or Herd
tokens. The casting cost of GG is a fair price to
pay to swap cards. Back in the day regrowth was a
much played card and suddenly we get to meet his
grandson. The card works well in limited for the
same reason it works in constructed. It may even
be stronger in limited as you will generally not
have as many bombs and so using them twice could
be devastating to your opponent.
you will see Dequan Watson play this card 100%
Dreams seems to be the caliber of card to
pop up in new combo decks. Its frailty
power. It has the potential for giving you
quality, but it also has the potential for giving
great card disadvantage.
In limited, where it has much less of a chance of
getting disrupted, it allows you to use all your
spells/creatures over again. How good are
the rest of
cards in your deck? Well, this card is as
good as all
the cards you get back combined.

all the dreams, this is the most playable. I
see it being used in
Extended, Type 1 (almost immediately its going to
see restriction like
Recall), and type 2. It gets back all your
bombs in Limited. The only
disadvantage is that you discard upon
announcement. Oh well, we can't all
be Ancestral Recall. 5 out of 5.
I guess the key phrase to this card is that the
cards you have to discard ARE NOT removed from the
game. This means this whole genre of cards
from Torment not only fuel Threshold effects...
but they also have excellent synergy with both
Madness and Flashback spells. Don't expect
to break this card or even abuse this card if
you're not planning on doing Madness tricks or
something because there aren't any
"broken" cards in this new environment
that can truly be abused with good recursion/tudoring/ect.
Recall is good. Threshold is good.
Madness is good. I see a lot of good
here. Getting it countered is a bad thing,
but oh well - everything else is good. It
will see constructed play, I am almost sure.
In limited, it's retarded. They kill
fatties, you get fatties back. Oh, by the
way, take 3 and Mr. Walla is on the board. :(
for the color that needs it the least. Come
on, green has a lot of
broken stuff, the last thing we need it to see it
AGAIN! At least it
removes from the game, so players won't see it
again. So, I give this
broken card a 5, and whether it will see play or
not, which I'm sure it
will, remains to be seen.
In limited, sure, I'll take recursion.
Especially something like this. I
can't give you an accurate placing in a draft, but
it will go fairly early.
I give it a 5 here also. I can't really
judge this card in limited, but I
do know this, recursion is good, thus I think mass
recursion is wonderful.
Constructed:**^(2 1/2 Stars)
In Limited, I like most Nostalgic Dreams since it
doesn't mess with your Threshold and you can get
all of those great cards that you used earlier.
don't really like it too much in Constructed since
can put more copies of the same card in so that
don't have to worry about getting them back as
There are also other cards that I think are better
getting cards back then Nostalgic Dreams.
