You would be surprised at how hyped this card was. People tried so many ways to make this card powerful. It had so much potential, but just wasn't powerful enough to penetrate the tournament scene with any significance. There's really not much to say here. The card's deceiving and isn't as powerful as we would really like it to be.

Constructed: 1.5
Casual: 2
Limited: 1.5

When you play this, you give up two cards in your hand. So if your opponent Shatters it or something, you lose all three cards. What did you get for those three cards? Well, if you play another copy of either of the two imprinted cards, you get a free copy of the other one. So you give up three cards and don't get anything for it until you play a fourth card? What's up with that?

Constructed- 1
Casual- 1.5
Limited- 1

Meh. Some casual players will try to do something funky with this thing, but for the most part, it's toilet paper. It's just has too many complications involved in playing it. Cards like these just don't work out to be worth the hassle. NOT at all for draft, and only for the most die hard crazy casual players.

Price check: $0.99

Well the spellweaver helix has induced many combos over the years: a cheep spell and tooth and nail, sway the stars and Promise of Power, ect... Sadly none of them ever caught on in constructed, but maybe one day there will be a insanely highly costed sorcery spell that would go perfict on this card.

ratings:
constructed- 2/5 can make some interesting ideas, but none that were really ever good
limited- 1/5 the two cards that you imprinted are probably the only copies of the 2 cards you have in the deck
casual- 4/5 hundreds of vaiable and fun combos here
