Realms Uncharted
 
In terms of pure power, Realms Uncharted is probably the lesser cousin of Gifts Ungiven. But I don't like focusing on what cards can't do; I do like focusing on what cards can do. Realms Uncharted can give you the colors you need if you have enough Tenth Edition painlands or Eventide filter lands in your deck to search for. It can give you four lands if you're already holding Life from the Loam. It can put Riftstone Portal in your graveyard so you can cast Erhnam Djinn with no drawback next turn. It can give you plenty of ongoing action for Knight of the Reliquary or Plated Geopede. For me, that's more than enough to make it worthwhile.

Magic The Gathering Card of the day: Realm’s Uncharted

Welcome back readers and today’s card I am in love with, if it were a woman I would take it on a date and be a gentlemen. Gift’s Ungiven is a great card; Gift’s Ungiven in green with a land clause is still a great card. The deck thinning combined with the fact heavily land based decks can take advantage of it, think Crucible of World’s and Life from the loam, you are in fact saying “ I can play any land in my graveyard which should I choose”. In standard I don’t expect it to see much play although it could be of use. In extended I would love a play set of this card combine possibly in a Deathcloud or rock style deck in conjunction with Bloodghast and Crucible of worlds I suspect it may see moderate play in extended. In eternal the bulk of this card’s play may come in 43 lands.dec , the sheer advantage that could come with this card with a life from the loam engine is insane. In casual and multiplayer its underwhelming as I feel most casual players could overlook it and the advantage is provides, although it could have some sick combo’s at the kitchen table. In limited I would rare draft it but I doubt it will make a huge difference in your deck possibly thinning and a boost to landfall depending on the draft. Overall I am a fan of this card look forward to utilizing it.

Today's card of the day is Realms Uncharted which at three mana has the very rare effect of searching your library for any four lands without the limitation to basic only. This thins out the library, adds to your hand, and accelerates you towards the higher cost spells. A very nice card that only requires the design of the deck include a variety of lands which may already be a part of Domain or many other three to five color builds.

In Limited unless you are playing four or five colors, which isn't generally recommended, this is not nearly as useful as in constructed formats. You can add an copy or two of lands outside your colors to support this, but a savvy opponent will just give those to you which provides only minimal gain. A rare card that probably shouldn't be a first pick in Booster and likely left to the sidedeck in Sealed unless playing four or five colors.

This isn't quite as exciting as Kodama's Reach, the only other 2G spell I can think of that gets you two lands, because it doesn't put one of them directly into play. But it's still fairly exciting. For one, it can in theory fix your mana if you have enough dual/multi lands or can keep your opponent from guessing which color you're short on. With all the nonbasics in Zendikar and Worldwake, you could easily search for four lands that all tap for the same color and just get yourself two lands. Or you could combo it, with cards like Knight of the Reliquary, Crucible of Worlds, or Life from the Loam. And it's an instant, so you can do it all on your opponent's end step.
