Gilt-Leaf Archdruid

Even if you never get seven Druids on the field, the fact that every one becomes a cantrip makes this worth it.  Card draw is power, and when all your creatures replace themselves in your hand, you don't run out of cards.  At this rate, why wouldn't you get seven Druids out?


Constructed- 3.5

Casual- 4

Limited- 2

This is one of those cards that can't be beaten when it works. Getting it to work is the issue. I really wish Worldly Tutor had been reprinted since 1996 - then Archdruid decks would be a little more consistent. I guess we have Primal Command. Don't forget that Llanowar Mentor's tokens are Druids. It's theoretically possible to pull it off in limited, but you'd probably need an awful lot of changelings.
 
Constructed: 1/5
