Seeker of the Way

A 2/2 for two is nothing exciting, but a 3/3 with lifelink for two is. If you happen to have a noncreature spell, even if it's just a mana rock or a little cantrip, then this suddenly becomes a very efficient beatstick... as long as you can continue to cast noncreature spells. I recommend draw spells, if you've got them, to keep your supply of spells up.

Constructed- 3.5
Casual- 2.5
Limited- 4.5
Multiplayer- 2

Seeker of the Way
 
The standard "two mana creature with keyword" is usually solid in limited, and occasionally does a job in constructed too. Seeker of the Way certainly doesn't disappoint on the first count, as there are plenty of interesting spells in Khans of Tarkir that let it apply lots of early pressure and stay relevant late game too. As for the second count, it's still fairly early to know for sure how it's going to go, but there may be more interesting Prowess cards to build around. It's definitely on theme, though, and is nothing to be ashamed of playing in any setting.

Today's card of the day is Seeker of the Way which is a two mana White
2/2 with Prowess and a second effect which combined gives it +1/+1 and Lifelink until end of turn whenever you cast a non-creature spell.  A Grizzly Bear with supported types like human and warrior is at least somewhat playable for White, though being a soldier would likely increase those odds, so adding effects to give Lifelink and +1/+1 when using support spells is quite decent. However, there are multiple other one and two mana White creatures that have Lifelink included which can compete for deck slots and leaves the Seeker worthwhile in Commander or decks with a great deal of support like auras or Heroic.
 
In Limited this is a two mana 2/2 that has side benefits from other cards, particularly combat tricks which can make very unfavorable trades for an opponent, and Lifelink as well.  There's no drawback to including this in any deck using White in Sealed and it is a very strong middle of the pack choice in Booster, possibly even early depending on the pack.

Seeker of the Way
 
Seeker of the Way is one of those sneaky good cards. It's deceptive, because it looks rather bland and boring at first glance. But in the right deck, it is quite a powerhouse. Turn 2 drop him on the field, and turn three attack and play a noncreature spell. They are unlikely to have a favorable block for a 3/3 on turn 3, so you just netted yourself a 6 point life swing. With a hand of burn spells, you can keep your opponent's board clear and your Seeker big and lifelinky. He's one of the best uncommons in the set. He's well worth his while in any deck that has white and a reasonable number of noncreature spells. If you see him across the board from you, treat him like a big threat that must be dealt with quickly.
