Many life-gaining cards are not terribly
relevant by themselves, although recent sets
have gone a long way towards remedying that;
everyone who's ever jammed Magma Spray or Unmake
into a crowded decklist because they feared
opposing Kitchen Finks will attest to that.
Cradle of Vitality attempts to give lower-tier
lifegain a little more relevance. The ability
can get out of hand pretty fast if you have a
repeatable effect like Honden of Cleansing Fire
(and don't look now, but it makes Kitchen Finks
even sillier). This card is sure to be an
instant hit with casual players everywhere, and
it even has constructed pedigree - Davin
Mitchell placed third in the Alaska state
championships with two copies of the Cradle in
his deck. Definitely one to watch.

Cradle of Vitality
I have yet to see this one be pulled off. I
think it will rest in many a trade binder. If it
were just one cheaper to make the counters
maybe. However, the casual crowd and jonnies may
Cradle of Vitality
Use it with Kitchen Finks???
Might throw one in with my Beacon deck with
Oh yeah I am going to draft Invincible Hymm and
Cradle of Vitality, with a Battlegrace Angel.
Better watch out!
Overall, one of the lowest cards for
tournaments, but has fun written all over it.
Cradle of Vitality Verry meh. While the effect is powerful
if you can reliably use it I can't see it
finding a home in a constructed deck. In limited
while there are a number of ways to gain life, I
don't see it being a reliable card. However in
casual this can be quite fun. It will allow to
recur your Kitchen Finks forever and with
repeatable life gain effects can create a beast
of a creature.
Limited: 1/5 (unless you somehow get multiple
copies and build a deck around it)
