In homelands?

This is the best card in Homelands, and it's a common card...

This is actually the highest rated card in Homelands.

This is very good for a common. Useful in Peasant format. I wish it could find Sorcery spells also.

Got restricted in Vintage. Two mana for a search spell that puts the card in your hand is excellent (except for land search, where two mana is standard).

Proving once again that no matter how useless a set may be, if you print a tutor card, it will see play.

The best card in Homelands is... a card that can search you up a non-Homelands card. Somehow, I'm not surprised.

@ aboblyndsae

You probably didn't get any because it's not actually as common as other commons. It was effectively an uncommon card. Gatherer has it wrong.

Homelands had 8-card booster packs, with 6 cards from one 121-card (C) sheet, and 2 card from the other 121-card (U) sheet. The C-sheet had 50 C2 cards and 21 C1 cards on it, which just means those cards appeared on the sheet 2 or 1 times each. (50x2 + 21 = 121) Merchant Scroll was one of the C1 cards. The U-sheet had 25 U3s and 46 U1s. (25*3 + 46 = 121)

A C1 card appeared once on the C-sheet, so had a 1/121 chance of appearing for each C-card included in the booster. Because of the 6-2 breakdown, (6 C-cards & 2 U-cards) this means that a C1 like Merchant Scroll had a 4.96% of appearing per booster. (1/121 * 6 = 0.0496) U3s, which are widely accepted as uncommons, had that exact same chance. (3/121 * 2 = 0.0496)

best card in Homelands

Yes this is and will be, because it's so broken that it's banned in one format and restricted in another.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
