Weird Harvest - Friday

This is a very awkward card. You get what you want, but so does your opponent. Unless I'm using it in a protected situation, I'm not likely to play it. If I'm combo'ing and have a bunch of mana, I can make use of my creature right then. Unfortunately, in most cases, your opponent will get their creature and cast/use it first. I don't like that situation at all.

Constructed: 2.5
Casual: 3
Limited: 1.5

Does this really do anything besides enable Hearbeat Maga decks in Standard? I don't think so. In any other deck, I'd be too afraid to play this. Never know what you could be handing to your opponent. Unless you KNOW you have something to search for that's scarier than anything your opponent could pull out, this is a big risk. Granted, these kinds of risks can be fun, but...

Constructed- 1.5
Casual- 3
Limited- 2

Umm.... Kinda crappy. You pay the mana, and your opponent gets just as much benefit as you do. I don't even imagine this would see casual play.

Constructed - 1.5
Casual - 2
Limited - 1.5

Each player may search his or her library for up to X creature cards, reveal those cards, and put them into his or her hand. Then each player who searched his or her library this way shuffles it.

Heh. Like yesterday's card, Weird Harvest is another Magic card that I have never seen in action. Weird, isn't it? Still, it's a Green Tutor and they've always bothered me just on general principal. *Black* is the color of "search yer deck/pick-and-play" spells, not freaking Green! Jamie Wakefield be damned! ;)

Okay, if you're in the need for several creatures right now, then the Harvest clearly excels. Green can produce the mana needed to cast them all quickly, too. The "each player" part bothers me a wee bit, which is why I give it a 3 out of 5.

Limited is all about the creature wars, the Harvest may be your best friend if the firefight has stalled out. With everyone drawing up on critters, the battle will end P.D.Q. One way or the other. 2.5 out of 5.

Casual: I think I would like to see the stalled out multiplayer game where this is played. Draw 'em up, show 'em off and laugh at the weaker players that automatically concede, then kick back and watch the remaining gunslingers blast pure hell out of each other. 3.5 out of 5.
