Worldly Tutor
 
Mirage is one of the greatest blocks of all time, and the members of its tutor cycle rank among the most influential spells of all time. Worldly Tutor is the conceptual predecessor of Lorwyn's Harbingers, among others, and although it's sometimes a little overshadowed by Vampiric Tutor's versatility and somewhat slow for aggro decks, it is a good choice for anything that has creature-based interactions but lacks pure combo elements. In Commander or Tiny Leaders, where every deck is constrained by color, it may indeed be your only choice.
 
The cycle as a whole actually makes for a remarkably fair variation on Demonic Tutor: while three of the four are specific and the last involves a life payment that can invite pressure, their instant speed gives you flexibility and the replacement of your next draw with the card you searched for is a more notable opportunity cost. This seems to still be considered too powerful for recent sets, but they do good work in more casual large formats without being too overpowering.

Today's card of the day is Wordly Tutor which is a Green one mana instant that moves a creature from the library to the top of the deck. 

This variation of the Tutor theme is still strong and can be enhanced with draw power, plus the low mana cost allows it to set up a draw with minimal loss of tempo outside of the card itself.  A great addition to any Commander deck and still popular in older formats to search out key creatures or responses.
 
In Limited this is just as useful as in Constructed as it can search the top creature in a format dominated by high end creatures.  A fantastic second pick in Booster after a Green rare, though a bit weaker with the reverse order as drafting into power cards of that color can be harder. 

For Sealed this increases the value of any pool even if Green is just splashed as whatever color has the best creature this can support it.
