Stitch in Time

Not much to say here.  It's a coin flip.  Yeah, you can get an extra turn, but 50% of the time, you will have spent your mana to get nothing.

Constructed: 2
Casual: 2.5
Limited: 1.5

Stitch in Time

I've never liked coin flips. Obviously, you can't count on the outcome. The fact that Stitch's mana cost involves unfriendly colors doesn't help much, either. But who knows...it still may find a niche in some combo or tournament deck. Time will tell on cards like this.

In casual, an interesting option, though the unfriendly color scheme could hurt it here, too. In limited, if you're going RU, I'd throw it in my deck. It will only be useful situationally, but if the situation does arise, it could be great.

Constructed - 2.5
Casual - 3.5
Limited - 3

Well I have to say this card is very interesting. This card is probably the cheepest turn giving card since time walk, and we all know how powerful that is. But the question is, does the coin flipping kill the card or not? IMO this card is pretty bad, but the ability to gain another turn for only 3 mana is so great this card WILL be seen in R/U izzet decks, and if you have a way to replicate it (say that djinn thing) then it actually might be useful(6 mana for a possible 2 turns? not that bad).

Ratings:

constructed- 3/5 this card will be played so it gets a little higher score than I would usually give it

limited- ?/5 im actually undecided on limited, I guess i will have to wait till the prerelease before i know

casual- 5/5 cheep extra turns can be fun, even if irritating for your opponet, in casual

final thought- this seems like a fun card, and maybe even one of the few flip cards that will ever be played in constructed magic

Stitch in Time - Oh man. Here we go. All of the flavor background info for the Izzet says that they've got some crazy random effects going on. And here's a prime example. Three mana is not much, and you get a 50/50 shot at taking another turn. How great is that? Well, I guess it's not that great.
I'm sure
there will be a rash of people playing Krark's Thumb based Izzet decks for a while in the casual tables around the world, but don't expect this one to show up on the tournament scene or even in draft decks. I might run this as my 23rd card if I've got very little else going for me. After all - it might work.
