Wheel of Sun and Moon


This one's interesting for two reasons: one, it says "from anywhere", meaning anything from an opposing Millstone to Wrath to your own instants and sorceries resolving will put cards back into your library.  And two, it's an Aura- Enchant Player, meaning even though you'll probably want to play it on yourself, you could also randomly demolish an opponent's strategy of Dredge or reanimation or whatnot.  If only it were red/green instead of green/white, I'd be tempted to use it in an all-burn deck so it would turn every Incinerate into a small Beacon of Destruction.  I don't know if green and white can pull off an all-spell deck, but I'd be interested to see someone try.


In most constructed games, this won't have enough impact on a game unless it's the cornerstone in a combo.  In Limited, it might be nice to get your spells back, and you might actually start seeing cards twice given the small deck size, but the fact that it has so little impact on the board makes it little more than a quirky Johnny card.

Constructed- 1.5

Casual- 2.5

Limited- 2.5

This is such a powerful card in the abstract, I think that if it hasn't seen play it's simply because it hasn't had a chance to. The effect is awfully similar to Leyline of the Void, and I wouldn't be surprised if one day it becomes almost as ubiquitous. The fact you have to pay mana for it is a slight downer, but at least its mana cost is cheap. And it can go in mono-green decks.
 
Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 2/5
Limited: 2/5 (because it stops Persist)

This card had my Jonny head spinning when I first saw it.  For one, this allows you to rip through your deck without running the risk of milling yourself.  Now when I went looking for combo's, I came hard pressed to find a great one.  What I think this will ulitimately be used for is yet another graveyard hate card.  Sorry dredge, Sorry Bridge From Below, etc...  No place in limited.  Sideboard...here this card comes.  However, I would love to hear from the person that finds the combo.

Wheel of Sun and Moon

 

Constructed: Anti-dredge. Can cause all sorts of problems for graveyard related decks. Not many green and white only decks, but can be spash in either type.

 

Casual: Not to exciting for the casual crowd, maybe if someone has a crazy reanimator deck.

 

Limited: Not great for Sealed or Draft. Only thing it works against is perist. Good side deck card for anyone who drafted or made a sealed deck with alot of perist creatures in it.

Wheel of Sun and Moon - Tuesday

This is one of those cards that is sure to show up against combo decks.  Anything that can manipulate the graveyard is going to be afraid of this card.  It's amusing though, because at first glance a lot of players give cards like these very little respect.  Tornament guys knew exactly what to do with this card the minute they saw it.  Unfortuantely, it's pretty much a sideboard card for tournament players and has very little value in limited or casual play.

Constructed: 3
Casual: 1.5
Limited: 1
