Farseek

Okay, okay, this card is not Rampant Growth. That's all you need to know as far as constructed play is concerned. For Ravnica limited formats, Farseek is all the Rampant Growth you're going to get, so unless you are playing mono green (unlikely in limited in the post-Champions-Snake-deck age) this will be a card usually worth playing to get your other colors online.

CONSTRUCTED: 2.0
CASUAL: 2.0
LIMITED: 3.5

It's amazing that this card is a common. It's extremely powerful. In Legacy and Vintage with dual lands being popular, this is sure to be a great search card. Also, the new lands from Ravnica that are dual color will be labeled as both land types that they represent. This means that you can use Farseek to go fetch those from your deck. I'd expect this card to get a lot of play in formats outside of Standard. Unfortunately, in limited play, it's not nearly as useful.

Constructed: 3.5
Casual: 2
Limited: 1.5

A card that has some nice synergy with the new Dual Lands - the great thing about the dual lands is that they are considered, for instance, Plains AND Mountain at the same time, which are a huge advantage when it comes to searching for them. Farseek lets you seek out more than just a basic card, including one of the new Dual Lands. A nice way to accellerate in the set, and it sure seems like you'll want to be grabbing onto all the accelleration you can get. Many of the creatures in Ravnica are MASSIVE, and some have matching casting costs. Farseek will undoubtedly see a lot of limited play, and probably some casual, too.

Constructed - 2.5
Casual - 3.5
Limited - 4

PS: And if you'd like to take a peek at some of those HUGE creatures I just mentioned, you can see all the Rares at my eBay auctions if you'd like - not necessary to bid - but don't look if you want to be surprised at a release event! Check them all out HERE. And for all Pojo.com fans, if you win any of my auctions, just email me at the end of your auction and mention this column, and I'll throw in a free random Bonus Rare with your package!

hey peoples today we have the ravnica "better than rampent growth, and maybe STE" Farseek.

im going to have a short review today because there isnt much so say so...

all that farseek is, is a rampent growth for the new shocklands (incase you didnt know it gets those too). so this will definately be used in block, but in T2? who knows...

ratings:
constructed- 4/5 great duel searcher
limited- 4/5 mana accel is always nice
casual- 2/5 meh... there are more exciting ways to get your land here

final thought- WILL be used in RBC green decks, but besides that, probably not

No complaints here. If Rampant Growth was good, then this card is almost decent. I'm not quite following the logic on it being unable to go get a Forest, but I'll just accept it and move on. If Sakura-Tribe Elder isn't an option (such as in limited) or you need something to replace it, Farseek is your card. Otherwise, just ignore this card and move on.

Constructed Rating: 3.0
Casual Rating: 2.5
Limited Rating: 3.0

Farseek is going to greatly increase the power of multi-color decks. Which might make me think of making my sliver deck again. Ravnica to me looks like now another Apocolypse block, multi-color madness! You can search for about any color mana except Forest, which is not a problem, great for casual and other formats for multi-color, if your mono then there is no need for this card.
