Eladarmi's Call is clearly better, but the point is both are still quite viable in EDH. Particularly if you're running Rith or Ghave and don't really give a darn about one of your tokens.

Maybe overshadowed by Eladamri's call, but it was god at the time of ice age.

Sacrifice Academy Rector, search for another Academy Rector.

Sac outlet and Ed's Call. Not the worst card ever. In highlander formats (I.E. EDH) its Ed's call #2

Upon playing this card, stab your opponent. When people start restraining you, go "What? I was just paying the casting cost..."

This is a better card than the detractors are giving it credit for. Sacrificing one of your creatures can be a benefit. One could easily build a deck that would take advantage of this card over Eldamri's Call.

You have to remember that by the time Ice Age came out, most of this hadn't been invented yet.

The colors are wierd by OUR standards, no doubt there- out of curiosity, I tried thinking Devil's Advocate for the card though--

White is the color of balance. You should have to pay a creature to get exactly the creature you want?

Perhaps if this was gold hybrid, like the Alara Reborn 'blades', say G W/B, or B G/W, the cost would make more sense.

While the colors look 'wrong' to us today, I appreciate the attempt to balance tutoring with a meaningful cost. Maybe if sacrificing and discarding appeared as costs on more tutors, we could get them at nice mana costs again. That would limit the usefulness of Tutors to only the special decks that not only want, but need them, while at the same time making the cards even better for exactly those decks.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
