Thoughweft Gambit

It's basically an alpha strike card-- swing for the team, then play this before blockers are declared.  At six mana, it doesn't come down until you're ready to alpha strike.  Cards like this don't do all that much, but they're good at what they do.

Constructed- 3

Casual- 4

Limited- 4

Thoughtweft Gambit
 
It looks awfully expensive, but you're paying for the surprise factor as much as anything else. You don't often need an effect like this except in limited, and if you do, Cryptic Command has a similar ability and is probably better at it. When it works, it wins games, but it's pretty narrow.
 
Constructed: 1/5
Casual: 2/5
Limited: 2/5

Thoughtweft Gambit:

 

Constructed: Very expensive for what it does. If it was cheaper it would be a great card, but they new not to make it very cheap.

 

Casual: Fun card in multiplayer. Do it at the end of the person that is next to you, before your turn.

 

Limited: This is a great card to turn the game around. If there is a stall with alot of creatures on both sides and you need a way to get threw, this will do it. Top pick for blue or white draft. Sealed deck the same way.

 

Overall a good card with a high cost. But any cheaper it would probably been broken somehow.

 

Constructed: 3

Casual: 3

Limited: 4
