Nice artwork. Fairly useful card. If you get in your first hand, you can play it at your leisure to keep that one land per turn going. I usually substitute this for one land in my deck and it seems to work out well.

Landfall goodness may have this card see play.

But it DOES give actual CA to decks which normally don't have access to it, which is never a bad thing.

First of all, amazing art. Secondly, the fact that this feeds hand count, fixes mana, assists in domain and landfall, filters your draws, allows you to hit land drops, sacrifices for its effect for graveyard counts and recursion strategies, and is also colorless makes it worth a thought.

Great for a monored deck that wants to play dragons and trigger Valakut, the molten pinnacle without the help of green.

This seems pretty powerful - probably competes with Darksteel Ingot (and even Gilded Lotus) among artifacts that support multi-colored efforts - which can be more helpful or simply better in many decks than Green's abilities to provide similar assistance (because, for one thing, not all multi-colored decks are able or wanting to include Green).

However, in decks that do contain Green - and even in mono-Green decks - the Sphere has great synergy with the solid and playable Explore.

2 mana then 2 mana is not EXACLTY the same as 4 mana... but lets see what this card does...

first, it's an artifact... esper goodness.
2 and blow it up, search your deck for 2 basic lands and add them to your hands. This is mana fixing AND filtering. After you filter your deck your less likely to draw land when you dont need it, so it does give you a card advantage, and becuase you just added 2 lands to your hand, you won't miss a drop for a couple turns...
Then its an artifact in your grave, there are a few cards in esper that like this..

All in all.. meh. Its actually a Little better than the obelisks in the long run, as it does filter and you won't miss drops, but esper will get the most use out of it (they can reduce it's cost by 1, this also applies to the obelisk, but the sphere STILL beats it thanks to the filter).
It's priced EXACTLY right, meaning its not a cool as it could be..

It'll get higher marks in 5 color builds but even in 3 color it's not bad.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
