The fact that it costs one more than Rampant
Growth is offset by the fact that the land comes
into play untapped. Either way, you're up one
land and three of your lands are tapped. The
real jewel here is the Suspend option, allowing
you to make this your turn one play and
potentially giving you four untapped lands on
turn three instead. That probably makes this the
most useful of land tutor spells in Standard.
Not that that's saying much...
I haven't met too many people who noticed that
this card is basically the same as the ancient
Untamed Wilds but with the suspend ability. I
like it since it provides a big burst of
acceleration a couple of turns down the line for
a nominal investment. In Standard, though,
people took to playing Edge of Autumn (when
Flagstones of Trokair and the Ravnica duals were
still interacting) and then Into the North
because it could also find Scrying Sheets.
Search for Tomorrow is still a solid choice if
what you need is lots of lands, but if
Riftsweeper becomes popular you should probably
consider something else.
Magic Noob in Canada since 2002
I had a wacky GR Dragonstorm that ran green for
the mana acceleration rather than blue for
looking for Dragonstorm. It actually worked
fairly well. This card was in it because uses up
the otherwise useless mana on turn 1 and the
suspend adds a storm count without using up
In design, this card is pretty simple, but I
find it unusually effective because suspending
costs 1 mana and playing it in effect uses 2
mana because the land comes into play untapped.
So unless you only got 2 mana sources out, this
will be better than Rampant Growth, of course,
not saying Rampant Growth is good or anything.
It's just good at what it does, which is why
Mana Ramp uses it. However, decks that use it
aren't Tier 1 right now, so what it does isn't
extremely powerful. It's not even a fun card,
just sets up infrastructure. In limited, it
fixes up mana, and that's more important here
due to lack of other means to do so.
Search for Tomorrow
Sorry for my long hiatus from card reviews,
folks. Finals were a brutal assault on my mind
and body lol. Anyway, we look at Search for
Tomorrow, a useful land search and mana
accelerator that has been seeing some play in
the popular Big Mana decks. Being able to
suspend this turn 1 can be an efficient way to
start the game if Birds of Paradise isn't
showing up. The use of this card is simple and
straight-forward: get a turn 4 drop one turn
sooner. Garruk Wildspeaker, I'm lookin' at you!
Your average person won't hardcast this, since
building a storm count and getting a free
untapped land to use right away is more useful.
