Dizzy Spell

I'm not a huge fan of this card. However, it does have the transmute ability. I'd expect it's more likely to be used for transmuting than anything else. But in limited play, this card is OK. It can often times keep a creature alive in a tight situation. Or, if your opponent has a trick, you can reduce the size of their creature to keep yours alive.

Dizzy Spell

How can anyone not recognize the sheer power of Dizzy Spell? It's incredible on so many levels. Okay, maybe not. But it is on the watch list for the 5-Color format. That has a whole lot more to do with Contract from Below than it does Dizzy Spell, though. This card is pretty awful. Shrink-type spells have always kind of sucked. The transmute ability on this one might redeem it, if there was anything good to search for that costs 1 mana (like Contract From Below). In more current formats, well there's just nothing worth spending three mana to search for. I guess what I'm saying is that this card isn't any good. Don't draft it. Don't play with it casually. Don't even flip it upside down to use it as a saproling token.
