Pauper legal now, huh? I wonder if MBC can use this.

Edit: Gitaxian Probe doesn't have the option of being played as a 3/4 swampwalk. In MBC, this is way better.

Gitaxian Probe #2? Or Living End support? Whatever your use, this is one of, if not the, best cycle cards in the game.

Actually, you can run as many as you get in limited. A pack has 10 commons right? So I think in a pod of 10 for a draft, you could potentially get 10 per pack (assuming all packs have 1 and they all get passed). By the end, you could have 30 less cards in your deck (although you actually wouldn't be able to pay for all the cycle costs).

Turn 1: I cycle 10 of these... GG

Methinks MBC will enjoy this just fine ;)

"Enables 36- or fewer card decks in Limited. 44-card decks in Constructed with this, Mishra's Bauble, Urza's Bauble, and Gitaxian Probe. Pretty good for Legacy Dredge. Awesome reprint."

@SyntheticDreamer I do not remember any limited Format that offered all four of these cards; or even two of them :P

Edit (since 6/11/13):
"@Mode: There's a key word you skipped over. ;)"
Whoops, i realized my comment doesn't really make sense either way - for some reason i was thinking 36 because you'd draft exactly one copy of each mentioned card :D

But as SAUS33 pointed out, you'll get to thin your deck out by as many cards as you happen to draft Street Wraiths - simple as that. It's not like you 'unlock' up to four copies of them for each one you draft, haha.
There's no four-copy-rule whatsoever, therefore talking about "36 or less" was misleading.
Also keep in mind it's basically impossible to stitch together a combo-based deck in limited,
so the idea of thinning your deck out seems... (see all)

@SAUS33: Hence "36- or fewer". ;)

Possibly an alright sideboard card, but unless you're in black or playing a graveyard focused strategy (which probably also means you're in black), you have no reason to take this. Maybe if you can really take advantage of having street wraith's cycling it's worthy of being main deck, such as dredge decks where it can set off a dredge for 2 life.

I value deck thinning and especially creatures that act as spells for Domri Rade to find. Krosan Tusker, which has a similar ability and can work with the same tactics, is currently one of my favourite cards right now. But unfortunately, I don't see the power of an opening of 4 street wraiths in my grave, 2 land and a low mana dude in hand, 4 cards that I don't know what they're gonna be and 12 life.

Never thought this guy would be back.

Great for ichorid and dredge in general, ok for reanimator, decent for gaining efficiency in a deck; a nice little guy to have in your collection. He'd be far far better had he had Fear.

I wish he was a spirit. Sometimes it bothers me when they have *really really* similar creature types but then tribal usage differentiates them. They need something that applies more generally like "Undead" so that they can do things like this while having wide-supporting lords and wide-hate cards.

I guess I'm just a little nostalgic for Diablo 2 at the moment..

Pay 2 life: congratulations you have a legal 56-card deck.

Just don't run it with Ad Nauseam.
