And great art, too.

This guy is the absolute backbone of the Darksteel Reactor deck that I have.

He can defend while the reactor builds up, and he can also fish out Dismantle and Paradox Haze to help build up the reactor. He can even fish out Fabricate if I don't already have the reactor.

Outside of this deck, it's still a serious pwnage wall and transmuter.

My favorites... Long-Term Plans, Gomazoa, Lullmage Mentor, Reckless Scholar, Augury Adept.

would be great in a blue and red burn deck that uses Knollspine Invocation. Transmute Drift of Phantasms for Knollspine Invocation and let the fireworks begain.

Love this in my Ensnaring Bridge deck. If I'm having trouble drawing the bridge, this guy can fish it out for me.

This card is fantastic if you're building an EDH deck on a budget. It can tutor any number of useful things at 3cmc. Fabricate,Eternal Witness, Mimic Vat, and Dissipate are only a few of many great targets.

Find a Cloudstone Curio with Animar EDH deck.

A good cheap wall that blocks fliers or lets you trasmute into Jace Beleren

My favorite move with this card - xmute for Sword of Light and Shadow, play, equip, attack, return Drift.

Then xmute for some 3cmc degeneracy next turn - Intuition, Windfall, E-wit, all of the above. Recurring tutor in a low avg CMC deck blows the game wide open. Thanks for being a creature.

EDH, obv

Amazing card for casual multi-player. Big-defense, flying blocker early on in the game that still provides functionality later on via it's Transmute capability. Definitely gets put in any blue deck I build that has specific cards at a CMC of 3.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
