Ulvenwald Mysteries
 
Ulvenwald Mysteries is just one word away from being a self-sustaining loop (that word, of course, being "nontoken"). However, in the context of Shadows over Innistrad, extra Clues are definitely always a good thing, and extra tokens are a good thing too. Controlling one of these will make combat quite uncomfortable for opponents, and probably make them reassess a lot of their blocking decisions.
 
Another point of note: the concept of an action like investigate seems to be opening the way for designers to, at long last, make some sort of follow-up to Steamflogger Boss. Watch this space . . .

BMoor Ulvenwald Mysteries

Somewhere in here, there's an infinite combo waiting to happen. Ulvenwald Mysteries can turn every creature death into an extra card, and every one of those cards into an extra token, but it's a slow process. This isn't Fecundity we're dealing with here, folks. All the same, in a slow deck with a decent amount of creatures, this can help get you through the slow turns by giving you a way to use excess mana and a way to dig for what you need or to keep your hand stocked and keep the pressure up after your opponent has exhausted their resources.

Constructed- 3
Casual- 4
