Card of the Day - October 5th 2011

I wish some of the scrubs at FNM would take one of these.
Wanderings is pretty simple, so I'll get right down to it. The base effect is nothing more than a bad Cultivate or Rampant Growth, so if you're looking for some acceleration it's best to go elsewhere. This card would be completely useless were it not for the existence of Commander.

Commander is unique for being the only format where every deck wants more mana, even after the point in the game where you'd have threshold. Unfortunately, this card only pulls basics, but three basics for one spell is pretty damn good. You also get huge points if Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle is in that very same deck, or any landfall cards like Lotus Cobra (making Far Wanderings free) or Khalni Heart Expedition (fetching you an additional two lands).

That's it for today's CotD. Wander far, my brethren.

  1. just out of curiosity, why would you want the scrubs at your store to go away? if there are enough scrubs at your fnm, then your guaranteed at least a 1-4 rating which, now that i think about it, isn't that great. but think about the possibility of going 0-4 if your store composed of only good players.
    just a thought.

  2. I'm going to go ahead and assume the above comment was authored by one of said scrubs. Cute.
