All you need is 12 mana and you go 'infinite' with a thragtusk per turn. I'm sure there's an infinite combo here (that is inferior to non-infinite combos)
Well, screws up reanimator. And it's reusable, so that's pretty nice too.

oh, is that a unburial rites you just mulched? nope, try again.


Also a Selesnya themed card!

Bad Gaea's Blessing is bad.
Cute that we essentially get a Selesnya card in GTC, though. W00t, Dryad Triad!

That would have improved it considerably. And raised the cost by or .

Sideboard against graveyard effects for sure.

The difference between this and Gaea's is this is not optional! 
Odd, I would have prefered it as a complete functional reprint of Gaea's Blessing. It's certainly worth playing in decks like Door, and I like that the flavortext breaks the fourth wall by referencing that this spell has existed in a few different forms.

No, he didn't.  With the spoiled card, you can choose target the cards, even your opponent's cards, thus forcing them to shuffle in things like Unburial Rites.  With Memory's Journey, you choose target the player.  Any strategy of ruining what is in an opponents graveyard (unless they only have 3 or less cards in it) can't be done with Journey, and that player can choose what goes to their graveyard.

Trostani looks quite pretty here.    
Wait, I do the shuffling? Time to bust out the old Cheeto-hands riffle shuffle technique. Of course, if you don't want me to touch your bonfires you could always scoop :33.

Funny story: InQuest Magazine (I think it was InQuest) had an oversized Chaos Orb which I totally rooked someone into allowing into a (non-sanctioned) game. I had a proxy card that was a Mountain with "Chaos Orb" written on it. When I played it, my opponent cried foul: Him: "WTF? a Proxy? no-one said anything about Proxies. Do you even own an actual Chaos Orb?" Me: "Yes, but I thought it would be better to use a Proxy." Him: "No way. If you're going to put a Chaos Orb in your deck you have to use your actual Chaos Orb." Me: "*Sigh*. Okay." I pulled out this huge Chaos Orb and placed it on the table. He tried to cry foul again but everyone else said he insisted I use my actual Chaos Orb and that was my actual Chaos Orb. I used it, flipped it and wiped most of his board. Unsurprisingly, that only worked once and only because everyone present thought it was hilarious.

Hi guys! So, I'm a sort of returning player to Magic. I say sort of because as a child I had two main TCG's I liked. Yu-Gi-Oh, and Pokemon. Some of my friends branched off in to Magic, and I bought two pre-made decks just to kind of fit in. Like I said, Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon were what I really knew how to play. I have a extensive knowledge of deck building in those two TCG's. However, as far as Magic is concerned, I only ever used those two pre made decks. I know how the game is played, and I know general things, but now I want to get in the game for real. I want to begin playing it as a regular. My question is, are all cards ever released from the time of the inception of this game until present day fair game in a deck? Or are there special rules? Are some cards forbidden or restricted? Thanks guys, and I will gladly accept ANY help lol.
I have the same problem with women.

That's what RPJesus tends to do. That's why I don't think he's a real person, but some Magic Card Archive Server sort of machine, that is programmed to react to other posters' comments with obscure cards that do in fact exist, but somehow missed by even the most experienced Magic players. And then come up with strange combos with said cards. All of that is impossible for a normal human to do given the amount of time he does it and how often he does it. He/It got me with Light of Sanction, which prompted me to go to RQ&A to try and find if it was even possible to do combat damage to a creature I control (in light that Mark of Asylum exists).

Blue players get all the overpowerered cards like JTMS. I think it's time that wizards gave something to people who remember what magic is really about: creatures.
Initially yes, Wizards was married to blue. However, about a decade ago they had a nasty divorce, and a few years after that they began courting the attention of Green. Then in Worldwake they had a nasty affair with their ex, but as of Innistrad, things seem to have gotten back on track, and Wizards has even proposed.
You are my favorite. Yes you. And moments like this make it so. Thank you RPJesus for just being you.

I'm pretty sure whenever a player's library is to be shuffled, that player is the one that does the shuffling. Also, card sleeves.

I am so so so SO glad this doesn't have the bloody reshuffle trigger from Gaea's Blessing. I'd burn myself with magic cardboard if it did

I'm as big a fan of gaea's blessing as anyone and I've gushed about it in various threads in the EDH forum but I'm not a fan of this card.
Don't be too smart to have fun
Pretty good i guess.
big fat meh from me.
Gaea's Blessing would be way too powerful in the current meta while they are trying to push mill again.

I LOVE the art on this card.  So much better than the actual Trostani card
krap in constructed, limited, casual, etc.  i don't get the point of this card.  "let's design a card that no one can use"?

edit: the fact that it's selesnya implies to me a RtR cut that was available when they needed to fill a slot, and as a last minute add they wanted to make sure there was 0 chance it would have any effect on any format. so if that counts as a 'point', fine, i guess.

Or they just wanted to remind us that there are five other guilds that aren't featured in this set.

I could definitely see this getting sideboarded against reanimator.  Maybe even some sort of combo on your own graveyard, depending on the other cards in the set.

well, it gives me solace to know that there's a very usable dimir card syncopate
I can always appreciate a Selesnya card in a non-Selesnya set.

Why are people saying this is junk? If I'm playing simic, for one mana, I can shuffle a bunch of counters back into my library. Do that with Syncopate and I can remove a bunch of stuff from the game. For Golgari decks, you can discard creatures for your Lotleth Troll, then shuffle them back to draw them again. And get back the trolls if they die. Basically, any four-of in a deck becomes a seven-of. Who wouldn't want that?

A bird in the hand is worth 3 in the bush.... or so they say. Basically this is card disadvantage because you lose the card but don't get anything back. The only time this is a good investment is if you're getting added value by either protecting yourself from getting decked or hosing their reanimator strategy or something like that.

Increasing the chance of drawing action is a nice reward but that value is not worth 1 mana and a card.
