Combolicious.  I have tried to break this card a few times, but never quite
able to.  In the right deck its very powerful.  A 3 in Constructed, in
Limited I think it could be very solid and also gets a 3.

Recycle. I remember watching David Williams trying to pilot a Recycle deck
to the final 8 of Regionals back in the day. He didn't make it. But it was
fun everytime watching him try.

Art Rating: I've never looked at the card.
Limited Rating: 2
Constructed Rating: 2

The art on this card is great.  I also like the mechanic of it.  you can potentially put yourself in a lock.  However, if you are playing carefulyl around it, you get some really good card drawing action going.

In limited, I think I would take this.  It could possibly lead to youwinning game strictly on card advantage.

Constructed: 2.8
Limited: 3.3

Cards that lead to goofy combo decks that just don't work are some of my favorites.  This has to be one of my favorite cards to break ever.  Yeah, maybe it's possible, especially with Spellbook, but it never got broken even when both cards were type 2 legal - I don't see that changing now.  Just too disruptable.

In limited, why not.  The card advantage will almost always overcome an opponent as long as you don't have too many spells that cost more than 6 in your library.  When you start drawing 2:1 or 3:1, you win - that's Magic for ya.  Squee Cooking +  Gerrard Regurgitating = Opponent Squealing (in limited only)

Constructed - 2.5
Limited - 4.5
Current Price - $2.00

Another decent card with goofy art. The art is great for the card, in my
opinion :)

I remember one person who was always playing this card with Aluren. Probably
the only way you're  going to be able to abuse this card, as it requires
casting 2 or more spells per turn to get you any advantage.

In limited, I'm reminded of a quote by Gary Wise (I don't remember it
exactly, but this is the gist of it):

"Never skip your draw step for a card that doesn't begin with 'N' and end
with 'ecropotence.'"

Constructed: 2.7
Limited: 1.0 (lower if I could)

It's quite a hideous thought, when you apply the word 'Recycle' to the
process of digestion! Much as I'd like to rate this card highly, 4GG means
that this card is hard to play. The effect is great, but it cuts down on
your options and removes the valuable draw phase. In addition, a simple
discard spell like Gerarrd's Verdict shuts you down for good.

In constructed, stick it in a deck with massive amounts of acceleration and
rely on it for drawing power. Recycle is a little better in limited, as
there's more chance it'll see play, and gives you a reliable draw engine.

Constructed - 3
Limited - 3.5
