Thursday - Tezzeret the Seeker

As far as Standard goes, this may see play in Esper decks because they'll be artifact-licious, but 5 mana is kind of pricy for what you get. This card was made for Type 1 because of its I-win combo with Time Vault -- not only does it form one card of a two card infinite combo, it even searches out the other piece from the deck, which is important because of Time Vault's restriction. It could see play in Extended too, but the banning of Sensei's Divining Top will hurt his value (if ever so slightly) there.

In limited, if you are heavy, heavy Esper then I could see playing this, otherwise don't bother.

Constructed - 5
Casual - 4
Limited - 2.5

Tezzeret the Seeker
 
Tezzeret looks all right when you take other cards from Esper into account, but he looks downright powerful when you take all the amazing artifacts in older sets into account. People have already been looking for ways to get him into Vintage decks, especially since word came out that Time Vault's Oracle text is going to be changed back to its original functionality (yes, Tezzeret can untap it now). If you're interested in Vintage or Legacy, or even just in Fifth Dawn's "cog" theme, this is definitely a card you will want to be familiar with.

Tezzeret the Seeker

 

Constructed: A 5 costing Tinker to get out any artifact that cost 5 or less from your deck into play. Standard not much to chose from. Extended maybe a little better. Vintage a whole lot of options. Could be interesting with Affinity in Extended.

 

Casual: I am putting one of him in my Sway of the Stars deck.

 

Limited: This could be usefull with some of the artifacts we seen so far. We will see when the rest of the set is release.

 

Overall a good card for it's rarity and cost. I have heard alot about it not being that great.

 

Constructed: 2

Casual: 4

Limited: 3

+1: Untap up to 2 target artifacts
-X: Search your library for an artifact card with converted mana cost X or less and put it into play. Shuffle your library
-5: Artifacts you control become 5/5 artifact creatures until end of turn.

Quite a powerful card. Probably too expensive for the older formats (most of the planeswalkers are) but could make quite the impact in standard. Seeing as every creature in the Esper shard is also an artifact, the ability to tutor for any creature is quite nice, not to mention to mention all the utility card you can search out (the capsules etc). The first ability is also quite nice, you can give two of your creatures quasi vigilance or untap utility artifacts. The ultimate ability is interesting, I assume it would make all your artifacts 5/5, even those that are already creatures. So if you have 2 creatures and 3 other artifacts (not unlikely) thats 20 points of damage right there. In limited if your in Esper you take this card for sure, he is an absolute powerhouse.

Constructed: 3.5/5
Casual: 3.5/5
Limited: 4/5
