Card of the Day Reviews
game store owner in CA,
Uh, yeah. Go get
your nasty Legend and have him all read to play.
Not sure what will happen in Tournament
constructed with this guy, but you had better
believe it should become a casual staple. The
ability to search your deck and grab the Legend
you need is amazing.
In limited, if you
have a Legend in your deck, you play this.
The more Legends, the better.

A tutor for legendary creatures. How
nice. For such a limited tutor, I'd
rather just have card draw if
possible in constructed. If I can't
have card draw, then MAYBE I'd
consider playing this. I'd need a
gamebreaking legend to play with
In casual, I see this getting a lot
of play. Any way you can get your
fatties faster is generally good
times in casual.
In limited, if you have a legendary
bomb, feel free to play this. It's
like having 2 copies of that card in
Time Pro Tour
Time of Need
My big shot pro tour buddies like this card a
lot in limited, but it hasn't been very useful
to me. I think the problem is I never seem to
see good legendary creatures in the booster
drafts I have been in. If you DO have one or two
legends in your deck that are worth the trouble
of searching for, Time of Need is certainly
efficient enough at only two mana to be worth
your time. This card hasn't showed up in
constructed decks much yet, but I believe it is
only a matter of time before this card becomes

Time of Need
This card has casual written all over it.
Nothing like a tutor card for your Legend deck.
Is it playable in anything else though? My play
testing leads towards yes. Iíve played it in
several draft/sealed decks where I had a Dragon
or other Legend I wanted to get out, and this
card effectively gives me two of them. It also
does some deck thinning, however slight it may
be. I give it a situational thumbs up.

Time of Need - Thursday
Several people seem really big on this card. I
would only be super excited about this if the
deck I were playing had a legend that was
critical. Otherwise I might use commune with
nature. Casual players will love this card
though. There are a lot of legends that make it
into casual games. In limited play, this card is
OK, because you inevitably end up with a couple
of useful legends.
Time of Need --
I'm a big fan of tutors. You get to play five to
eight copies of a card when you are normally
only allowed four. I like that. I'm a bit
disappointed that this card only fetches
legendary creatures, but I'm pretty sure
Champions isn't shorting us on legends. The
price is right, too, so I can't complain on that
This card will likely see more play in casual
environments than tournaments, if only because
there are more viable targets for Time of Need.
In limited, as long as I have multiple legends,
I will generally find a way to fit this card
into my deck. Why not? It thins the deck and
allows you to have your pick of the goods hiding
in your deck.
