Savor the Moment

This one hasn't seen a lot of play.  Historically, if a card could keep you from untapping for a turn, it's referred to as a "time walk" since not getting to untap your lands or your creatures frequently means you can't do anything that turn.  So Savor the Moment gives you an extra turn, but then "time walks" you out of it by not letting you do anything with it?  It works well in any deck that can abuse Merrow Commerce, but that's about it.

Savor the Moment

 

Constructed: Take an extra turn, sounds great, sound awesome, for only 1 and 2 blue. But, BUT!!!, you have to skip your untap step of that turn. Not much to do on the turn you take with 1 land open, this is assuming you play it on the third turn. Will probably not see it in Standard or Block due to how fast the format can be. Plus playing against control decks they will let you take the extra turn and counter whatever you try to do during your extra turn.

 

Casual: Fun card with the wonder 'Mirror' skipping the untap step is not all that bad.

 

Limited: Working with this card in a sealed deck would be interest. If you had a Thoughweft Gambit it could swing the game around in your favor. Draft I would pick it, but will probably not build a deck around it. There are several cards I would pick over it if I was not drafting blue.

 

Overall and good card with a hard drawback to deal with. Good luck.
