not a 1 star card like everyone claims, i give it 2/5 simply for the versatility and cheap cost, but nowhere near semi-pro level of play or even beyond FNM play.

I don't know. There is certifiably at least one card worse than this: Heal.

Iunno. The cantrips is pretty good for one, though I think this is a card best served in a situation where you have four open slots and nothing better to put in, or you have one or two specific cards you really want to draw for your win con as early as possible. Four of these, four Squaks, and four Evolving Wilds really adds up after a while, pair that with an opening draw of Seven, and you got 19 cards out of the way. Now granted, I would still prefer Origin Spellbomb for my white cantrips, but I can still see situations where this card would be justified. Use it for Cantrips most of the time, and sometimes, sometimes, that one damage could be a deal breaker.

Surprisingly solid in draft. Don't knock it until you try it.

(And anything that cantrips at 1 mana is automatically a 3. Honestly....)

Anything that cantrips at 1 cmc is worth a second look. This can be used to turn a trade into a favorable position, counter a lightning bolt, or simply prevent one damage to you and draw a card.

Definitely deserves a better rating then the 2 stars its at right now. Ill give it a .5 stronger rating then I gave its slowtripping cousin heal.

Deck thinning, with added bonus!

Tenth Ed contains some surprisingly interesting cards.

When Tarmogoyf first came out, I bought a playset at $4 each just to make a silly deck with cantrips like this, Scout's Warning, Street Wraith, and Edge of Autumn. I liked it so much that I played it at FNM, and lost horribly. The Tarmogoyf was always huge though. A year later, I sold those Tarmogoyfs at $40 each. A few years after that, they're $120 now.

I'm attempting to amass low-cost cantrip cards like this that target a creature so I can see if it's possible to build on Theros' Heroic mechanic with old cards. There's potential there, I can feel it...

Deserves at least a 3 for being a White Reach Through Mists with a handy addition that can be useful to save creatures from being bolted. I like the mention of cheap can trips like this and Heroic. Could be good.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
