Impulse

Outside of a "tutor" spell that puts a specific card that you are looking for in your hand or on top of your deck, Impulse is the best deck searching spell ever. The only really bad thing that ever happens with Impulse is when

there are two cards in the four cards you get to look at that you REALLY need. The dumbest thing people do with Impulse is use it to find OTHER COPIES of Impulse in their deck. This practice sort of shows that you are not decisive enough to just pick another card. Impulsing for Impulse is not a particularly strong play. However, this IS a great card for limited or constructed. In constructed, Impulse was a four-of play in EVERY blue deck.
Impulse is probably one of the top five or ten blue commons of all time.

CONSTRUCTED: 4.5
CASUAL: 4.5
LIMITED: 3.5

Good card. Pick your draw from the top 4. You don't lose the rest. It's an instant.

Impulse

This little blue cantrip is nigh legendary. Right up there in power level with Telling Time, this thing made dedicated Blue counter decks a nightmare, since they could use this in response to your spell to go find a counter instead of having to draw one normally. It's fairly safe to say that this won't ever get reprinted, a testament to its power.

Limited- 4.5
