Tuesday - Reweave

Meh. Pseudo removal for problem permanents, but they just get another permanent back. It has splice, but even the splice cost is much too high for any practical use in any deck. This might be cute in a token creature/big fatties deck, but that's about it.

Reweave

This card, while highly situational, is fine for limited play. Basically, to make this card valuable, you need to have six mana available when one of your creatures is about to be removed from play for one reason or another.
Now you can target that creature of yours that you are about to lose anyway and replace him with the next creature in your library with Reweave.

Unfortunately, you don't have any control over what the creature is. Reweave is interesting in that its Splice onto Arcane cost is lower at 2UU than its 5U casting cost. Of course, the total price to get this card's effect into play is still six or more most of the time, except in the rare times when you Splice this card's ability onto a one casting Arcane spell. In constructed, this card could be an interesting part of a combo deck containing only large creatures. More likely, this card could be a decent sideboard idea against Tooth and Nail decks. Maybe.

CONSTRUCTED: 3.0
CASUAL: 3.5
LIMITED: 3.0

Reweave

 

Not much to say about this card. Polymorph did not see much play when it cost two mana less than this. The Splice ability is likely to never get used, and while fun, it may suck so bad it won’t even get used in casual fun decks, as they will just play Polymorph. Reweave makes the list of “most disappointing rares to open in a pack.”

Reweave --

I'm not quite sure what to think of Reweave. It definitely isn't an amazing card, and as far as removal goes, its prettty mediocre. At the same time, it seems like you could make good use of it as removal. The normal casting cost is *way* too much, but the Splice onto Arcane cost isn't too shabby. If you have a lot of Arcane spells in your deck, I'd say at least take Reweave into consideration -- it will rarely make the cut, but who knows?

All of the above really applies to Reweave in any format. I'm going to give it a slightly higher rating in limited because, well, removal is removal.

Constructed Rating: 2.0
Casual Rating: 2.0
