Combos with Sorrow's Path.

Don't look at me, not all combos are good you know.

Goes great in a Glissa, the Traitor EDH deck. Or any EDH deck, really.

I gave this 4.5/5 simply because I have checked and this currently is the ONLY artifact that performs this kind of ability at common rarity and has a CMC of 1, so that it can be fetched with Trinket Mage.

Way too good to be ignored if you are playing a deck that makes use of specialty lands. The Urzatron, the Locus lands, Valakut, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Academy Ruins, Boseiju, etc. Green of course has Sylvan Scrying which is 1 mana less to use in total, but the map can fit in any color deck, and at 1 CMC it can be reused with Salvaging Station too for repeated fetch.

Actually running a Glissa EDH, this card is fantastic. Urzatron is kind of meh a lot of the time in EDH because there are usually better cards to hard-tutor for, and usually you can only get one of them for your hard-won tutor. But Glissa says "NOPE, HAVE EM ALL", and then you get the most use out of them, since Glissa should be running tons of artifacts.

I'm glad this has a 4+ rating - it seems to be largely underrated in the circles I talk to. Being able to search for *any* land is insanely powerful, especially seeing as it can be used by any color.

In white, you can fetch Emeria or Serra's Sanctum. In blue, Tolarian Academy. Black has Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers and Volrath's Stronghold. With red you can get Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle. Green gives you Gaea's Cradle and Yavimaya Hollow. And of course, the bazillion other nonbasic lands which are all worthy of tutoring for. Let's not forget 12-post and Urzatron.

Personally, right now I've got a playset in a mono black control deck that, among other things, focuses on ramping hard via Urborg + Cabal Coffers. Expedition Map helps me get that land-based ramp up and running, so I can start casting big bombs off it and generating powerful card advantage. Turn 5 Rune-Scarred Demon off of nothing more than just playing lands (including a Coffers and Urborg) is just rude. =D

I've been waiting for them to make another fetch spell for just LAND not basic land. now all decks can thrive and not just green, haha.

I've started using this to search for dark depths cuz I only have one in my deck.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
