the people downvoting this are bad at magic.

you DONT NEED TO PLAY GREEN TO USE THIS. its amazing! plus, it thins out your deck, and finds the Rav Duals and Alpha/Beta/Unlim duals

Thins your deck and is free land searching. Really fires up 10-land Stompy decks.

I adored this card ever since it saw print. I dont have duals, but I have them in my classic 10 land Stompy, an archtype that this card enabled. This card, combined with duals, are comparable to fetch lands.

I don't remember an instance that I paid mana to cast this spell.

For deck thinning purposes, it was almost always good to just replace 4 Forests with 4 of these, even before Ravnica duals saw print.

And so, this card lengthened every game by twenty seconds for essentially nothing.

Also great for shuffling your deck for free while being card-neutral and still keeping tempo.
You can brainstorm to draw three cards, put your lands onto the top of your library, then shuffle them away. It's great for decks with a few tropical islands.

Sure, you can shuffle with fetchlands, but you can cheat your land count down even further with this card as a combo with brainstorm. Just a thought.

The only downside if revealing your hand, which might be counter-productive in control decks. However, if you're playing blue control then chances are you control through permission, which the card advantage should be overwhelming anyways.

Great when you are stuck with no forests for kird ape or loam lion. :)

I found a bunch of these in an old box of Masques that I got years back. I just built a mono-green beatdown deck that runs 4 Land Grants and 17 Forests. I managed to get Emrakul out on turn 5. Do not underestimate this card.

I was going to rate this 2.5/5 until I saw your comment, Lege. Thanks! I always am withoutforests with an explore in my hand.

Love it. It's land in your hand, and a deck thinning forest otherwise. It can even find duals or a creature like Dryad Arbor~

This card basically makes the legacy Belcher deck happen, and I love it for that. In that deck, it grabs the sole land in the deck, letting the deck run only a Taiga. It also fuels storm count, if you happen to be running the Empty the Warrens alternate win condition.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
