Judge Bill

 Monday - Tinker

There are several good reasons why this card has 38 days left on its playability in extended. First, it tutors. Granted, it's only for an artifact, and you have to sacrifice an artifact, but how about exchanging an artifact land for a Platinum Angel? Or a spent Tangle Wire for a Mindslaver?

Second, this is mana acceleration. You don't have to pay the mana cost of the artifact to bring it into play - it comes into play free. So you likely save 4+ mana by using this card.

Third, this allows to to get away with only having one of certain high casting cost artifacts in your deck, and thus, lessens the chance of you drawing them.

All this will lead up to this being the first card on the banning announcement, coming next Monday.

In limited, there's not enough artifacts in Urza Block to make this worthwile, or to be able to pay the additional cost.

Constructed: 5
Limited: 1
