Between creature and land cards you should be able to get a card that does just about anything with this. Need to get rid of an entire graveyard (Bojuka Bog)? Need a fatty? Need a fifth Squadron Hawk (yes you totally do)? Need card advantage? There's creatures for that. Need lots of land? Get Gilt-Leaf Archdruid and take all of your opponent's lands! Need to destroy a land there's land for that!

1G is pretty good to search your deck for 75% of its contents, but your sideboard? Why even use a deck slot on situational cards or game ending bombs into you can tutor any one of your choice with this card?

5 out of 5, definitely. Awesome for utility creatures.

Fictionarius: the 4 card rule includes your sideboard so your deck wouldn't be legal to begin with.

This is the only playset of rares i ever got from just opening booster packs and it has won me many games. It fixes your mana if needed, and tutors up a creature all for two mana. There is nothing i love more than versatility.

This card is amazing! As with all the wishes it benefits from being able to get you cards that you only will want in certain circumstances and thus would rather not have a chance of drawing. For example, Elvish Piper may be something you run in your main deck but you don't have any way of generating the mana to cast a Progenitus... then you (Living) Wish you could have a Progenitus once your Piper is on the battlefield.

But Mode, Living Wish is not the only wish that can get two different types of cards. Golden Wish can get an artifact or enchantment, Glittering Wish can get any multicolored card and Death Wish gets any card. In fact, the only two wishes limited to one type are Burning Wish and Cunning Wish.

I can believe how underrated this card currently is.
This card has the same incredibly low mana cost of two as Demonic Tutor (which is banned in Legacy and restricted in Vintage) and is the only Wish that can get two different types of cards.
The 15 cards in your sideboard should have most you need when you play this card.
It effectively has a slow Eldamari's Call included and can even serve as Sylvan Scrying.
To me that is a certain 5 star candidate.

Grab yourself a Storm Crow OR Chimney Imp.

Versatility, indeed.

Does the flavourtext sound a little dirty to anyone else?

Looking for second opinion:
Living Wish is removed from the game before it ever hits the graveyard, correct?

I remember as soon as I laid eyes on this card I'd be willing to trade damn near anything in my collection to get it. Glad I did, because looking at it again I understand why I felt that way - I love versatility.

Oh another question. Let's say I have 4 Grizzly Bears and 4 Living Wishes in my deck, with 4 more Grizzlies waiting on the sideboard. Turn 2 I wish for a Grizzly, causing there to be 5 of them in my deck and hand combined. Legal?

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
