Strategy and Tactics

A solid card that you can run in almost any UR deck. Its ability to either rummage or ping down the board can be valuable at any stage of the game. It has a somewhat tricky casting cost that can make this tough to cast on turn 2 reliably but it's still very good down the line, when you have the mana to sink into its abilities.
