A sorcery speed Tutor is kind of a problem,
since you have to wait until NEXT TURN to
actually draw the card. However, in Type I,
where you have lots of other cards at your
disposal to help you draw cards, Imperial Seal
might be quite good for setting up combos.

Vampiric Tutor as a sorcery? Now legal in
Vintage? Dan Gray says thank you to Wizards for
suddenly making this card price shoot through
the roof. But seriously, in constructed this is
fantastic, as any tutor is, and the price of one
black mana, a draw, and two life is more than
acceptable. In casual it's still great, and the
life loss normally makes it less cheesy to your
opponents than Demonic Tutor. In Limited, if by
some miracle you ever have this card in limited,
it's a first pick for sure if you are playing
The ability to tutor for your best card at the
time is too good to pass up.
As we all know, Vampiric Tutor is an amazing
card. It allows you to find any card to
counteract your opponent's play, or it allows
you to find the one necessary card that you need
to win the game, or...well, it has a ton of
uses, most of which involve searching your deck.
Vampiric Tutor is an instant, while Imperial
Seal is a sorcery. So far as I can tell, this is
the only difference. Thus, I won't give it a
5.0. However, the power level of this card is so
great that in constructed, casual, or limited
play, it deserves multiple slots in your deck.
