Quicken

This card is interesting. It's drawing a lot of attention. It basically lets you pay an additional mana to power up the speed of one of your sorceries. That's not a bad thing, but it does let you draw a card as well. It's a card that should absolutely see some play.

Constructed: 3.5

Pretty much the opposite end of the spectrum from yesterday's Ink-Treader. Quicken speaks of incredible possibilities. At the very least it may help with some concerns that blue players have about the lack of instant speed card draw in Standard. Well, now you can cast your Compulsive Research at instant speed! Or your Tidings, for that matter. Of course, that's the simplest use for this little cantrip. The potential for causing strange situations with cards that are intended to be used on your own turn are limitless. You could use it to respond to mass removal with a Reprocess.
Or
you could use it to cast Roar of the Wurm at the end of your opponent's turn for a surprising attacker. I fully expect Quicken to be used or at least heavily tested in every available format.

Constructed Rating - 3.8
Casual Rating - 3.8
Limited Rating - 3.0

Turn your sorceries into instants - only 1 mana, AND you get to draw a card. Jury is still out, but Quicken is getting some early attention, and we've been selling them well on our Website and at our store, so the potential is there. Instant Wrath of God, anyone? In casual, you could use this to really have some fun, too, and be even more creative about it. Not so hot in limited, though it depends on the rest of your card pool.
