Supply // Demand

Versatility is what separates a good card from a great card. Considering that Supply // Demand is 2 excellent cards in one card body makes it a cut above. Putting a bunch of Saporlings into play is always a nice ability, and you can put as many as you can generate mana with Supply. Demand is a tutor for multi-color cards in an environment that feeds on gold. Very solid, and very playable...you'll see it around, I'm sure.

Supply & Demand

Some decks are running this card solely for one half or the other (mostly Selesnya decks only interested in Supply). When a split card finds its way into a deck that can't play one of its halves, then you know that it's a good one. And of course, any deck that can play both halves will gladly do so due to the fact that any deck with three colors of mana undoubtedly has a few multicolor cards worth searching for, and a herd of Saprolings are always a welcome addition to the board.

Supply // Demand

CONSTRUCTED

I’ve always seen this card as a tutor and nothing more. Supply is not horrible but it doesn’t come across as a card that would see much play, Demand on the other hand has a bit more potential. That was my initial opinion before seeing a few of the token decks at last weekend’s regional. I’ll have to go back and take another look at Supply, but when it comes to Demand all I can think of is Dovescape. Demand seems like the perfect way to tutor for Dovescape and casting Supply is not all that bad once Dovescape’s in play. The only bad thing is that I can’t see Supply//Demand in any other deck archetype and it’s not like Dovescape is a dominating deck at the moment.

2.5/5

LIMITED

One simply has to love how a few of the split cards shift from one end to the other when we look at them in constructed and limited. I would say Demand is the main reason to play this card in constructed but when it comes to limited it’s all about Supply. Being able to get a few 1/1’s out there is never a bad thing in a heavy creature environment, especially if the game has dragged out a bit and you just got yourself a small armada.

3/5
