I needed a little grave recursion for my artifact deck, so I gave this a shot. It gave me much more. Don't underestimate the utility of this card!

I absolutely had to include this one in my U/R Bazaar deck. Between Bazaar Trader and Dominus of Fealty, cards are going left and right, and the option to trade them out for something better was too flavorful to pass up. Throw away some jinxed trinkets for life through the Trading Post, then trade my opponent's creature to get them back and hand them over.

It's great for EDH purposes. Phyrexian Metamorph comes to mind, as well as Nevinyrra'ls Disc and Oblivion Stone. Scourglass in particular seems really good with this.

@Red-white: No even if that card existed, it would be nothing compared to Ancestral Recall. Ancestral Recall costs one mana. Ancestral Recall is amazing at any point in the game. An artifact that costs 5 mana to start with (very slow) then only draws one card instead of three is nowhere close, even if it can create lots of chump blockers. Comparing modern cards to Ancestral Recall (which is unbelievably broken in today's standards) is very stupid, especially if you don't understand why Ancestral Recall is so powerful (you clearly don't). And how does Cheza's card destroy a land?

@Cheza: Creating three goat tokens a turn is ridiculous - that's three chump blockers plus if you had something like Collective Blessing or Overrun, it would be game-ending. This card is fine as it is - useful and versatile.

This plays very well with Myr Sire, Perilous Myr, and Myr Retriever. Also sac artifacts like Expedition Map and the Spellbombs.

Combos amazingly well with Expedition Map.

If I choose to sacrifice an artifact creature to get an artifact, does it just go back to my hand? And what if I use this ability with precursor golem?

It can even cycle for 1 mana if you desperately need to draw a card. Edit:in an amusing flavour interaction Batterhorn destroys this! XD

How is ancestral recall relevant when evaluating the usefulness of trading post? ancestral is banned in two formats and restricted in one. trading post is legal in all formats.

Good versatility, but nothing game-changing. Works well with above-mentioned artifact creatures.
