As more modern players discover this card, you'll see it coming to an Urzatron deck near you.

It functions like an uber-Preordain in the deck. Just an incredibly powerful card for the archetype.

10/1/2009 Lands are colorless (even if their frames have some colored elements to them). You can't target a Swamp, a Mountain, or any other land with Celestial Purge (unless some other effect has turned that land black or red).

In Legacy it'll lose out to crop rotation, but it's still good nonetheless. Get that land or that Jitte a few turns faster.

I was looking for a card to put into a deck designed, in part, around Liquimetal Coating. The ability to dig 5 cards deep for a single mana really ups the deck's potential as it needs that artifact. Even if Liquimetal Coating isnt in the 5 cards, it still lets me get a land and burn through my deck towards my key card.

I will give this a 5 as it fits in a lot of decks that could use a card in that 1-mana-slot, and is a powerful yet balanced common.

This is the best card in my soon-to-be-unproxied Eldrazi deck. It digs for what I want whenever I cast it, especially critical early game Eldrazi Temples. And it will stay good when we head back to Mirrodin...

Underrated for sure. It gets you ANY land, Eldrazi or artfiact you want. Really useful, and perhaps one of the most overlooked commons of the set.

Im using this in my (future) deck with Mycosynth Lattice.
With Mycosynth Lattice in play it becomes " 1: Look at the top 5 cards of your library. You may put 1 card into your hand. Put the remaining cards on the bottom of the library."
Before Mycosynth Lattice is in play, you use it... to fetch the Mycosynth Lattice! Failing that, get a land or a Liquimetal Coating. 5/5

STANDARD: Awesome card to play when you are playing Eldrazi Monument in a Mycoloth and Avenger of Zendikar green creature tokens deck.

But this card is also very useful to get lands quickly in your hand (and to some extent very good in combination with Explore or Borderland Ranger). You will have your lands on table in no time to play your Mycoloth and Avenger of Zendikar on table.

Great ability for Green. Excellent common, I bet stirrings makes an appearance in a lot of decks.

Even if you don't run any colorless cards, this still acts as a cheap land fetcher. 4.5/5

I gave it a five because it's common. Normally I don't rate cards that high if they can't stack with themselves. Same thing with all the artifact-boosters in standard that aren't artifacts themselves. Esper was amazing in that sense.
