Solemn Simulacrum

Solemn Simulacrum
I believe Machine Man from Nextwave encapsulates this card's general feeling: "My robot brain needs beer. Also? I want to die." The really great thing about this card is that it's immediate colourless land fetch as well as colourless card draw. Cards like Armillary Sphere let you look for more land for the same cost, but the fact that this lets you draw as well as search for land is what makes it awesome. This card is present in almost every EDH deck that I've ever seen for good reason. The one real problem is that it has to die to draw and a lot of players will purposely avoid killing this card in order to prevent the draw. However, it's still a Rampant GrowthDredge, and Balduvian Bears all in one and that makes it great!

Pros: Rampant Growth on ETB, draw on death
Cons: Has to die to draw
Rating: 4.5/5
