Card of the Day Reviews 

Michael "Maikeruu" Pierno

Today's card of the day is Peregrination which is a four mana Green sorcery that allows you to search your library for up to two basic lands, put one into play tapped, and the other into your hand then Scry 1. This is an adequate acceleration and deck thinning card that probably won't see a great deal of play outside of Commander as the mana cost is slightly too high to be competitive. Even the Scry 1 addition is not enough to make it stand out and overall there are other choices to fulfill this role in most formats.

In Limited this can help improve the quality of future draws both by pulling lands and the use of Scry and there is some card advantage by getting two cards for one, so it is worth including for a Sealed deck using Green mana. In Booster it is a bit weaker if running a single color, but is useful after a multicolor first pick or as middle to late game acceleration.

Peregrination
 
There are times when I rue the fact that Magic basically has a language all its own, which is capable of being more obscure than Sanskrit and more contrived than Esperanto. Once you get to the end of the thesis that is Peregrination's rules text, you stop and go "Oh, it's Kodama's Reach with scry. That's a pretty good card." And it is, although the four cost is slightly on the late side for a mana ramp spell; on the other hand, Commander and the like can never have enough of an effect. But it might be nice if there were a way of expressing that idea which didn't rival "Le Morte d'Arthur" for reading time, and if there were suitably epic flavor text to go with this card's great name.
