Well... I guess this is a way to cheat in Serra Avenger before turn 3.

But you need 5 mana for that. Good luck!

I've put this card in two decks, with two very different results. With the first deck I was using it like a Tutor, only to discover (as everyone else has) that the mana cost can be prohibitive depending on what you're looking for. After being so disappointed, I took it out of that deck and put it into a five-color deck where I was already running several Tutors. In this deck it worked significantly better, as now I only used it to get more mana (it also makes it pretty easy to find that one elusive Sol Ring). Basically, use it for mana and low-cost cards only.

it's really too bad this was permanents. Would've been ridiculous with 0-cmc suspends..

I thought this was strictly worse than Demonic Tutor until I noticed that it doesn't have a land restriction. Being able to cheat any land into play untapped for 3 mana is surprisingly effective, and it only gets better from there. It's also nice that a blue player has to counter it without knowing what you're going to find.

I run this in my modern Bant Creature Ramp/Venser combo deck. It is awesome!! I got Venser, the Sojourner and need Phyrexian Ingester, well then, bam!!! I got it. I need Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker but don't want to play that mana, here is the solution!

It does some things a tutor can't.

People have pointed out that this doesn't use up a land drop if you use it for a land. This is probably the biggest selling point for Wargate.

My favorite use of the card is to slap a Control Magic on a hexproof creature an opponent controls. Cheating an aura into play allows you to attach it to something without actually targeting it.
