Let's get the obvious point out of the way: that this is technically and perhaps literally a green version of Zombify or Tinker, which for some reason is nowhere near as famous as either. The thing that stops it from being as entirely insane as those cards is the fact that most of the popular candidates for being cheated directly into play are not green, except perhaps Verdant Force, Terastodon, or Progenitus. Decks built around Zombify or Tinker also tend to be in colors that have better access to counterspells or other ways to protect their key card. Still, Natural Order deserves to be remembered alongside its opposite-colored counterparts because of the versatility it offers: green beatdown decks arguably need an alternate plan involving a billion-mana-discount even more than control decks. Heck, even searching for a Regal Force can be pretty spectacular.

Today's card of the day is Natural Order which is a four mana Green sorcery that allows you to sacrifice a Green creature to search your library for a Green creature and it put it into play.  This is effectively a Tinker for Green that can be used to bring out serious threats like Progenitus, Worldspine Wurm, or any other of Green's largest creatures very early in a game.  Supported with appropriate targets and acceleration this is a very powerful card that is not restricted or banned in older formats.

Ooh, this is a fun card. Running Elves and want to turn that Llanowar Elves into a Craterhoof Behemoth for a kill-shot? You run this card. I'd come up with some more, but off the top of my head, that's pretty much it short of Undying triggers or dying effects. It's a blunt instrument, but even blunt instruments have their uses. Loses points for color specifics though.
