Green Receives New Creature Tutor In March Of Burgeoning Life From Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty

Instant-speed creature tutoring? You read that correctly.

Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC) and BOOM Studios, check out the green card in the rare March cycle from Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty — March of Burgeoning Life!

March of Burgeoning Life is the fourth card in the cycle previewed so far, leaving just the blue one to be revealed. Let’s dive in.

As an additional cost to cast this spell, you may exile any number of green cards from your hand. This spell costs 2 less to cast for each card exiled this way.

Choose target creature with mana value less than X. Search your library for a creature card with the same name as that creature, put it onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle.

Just like the others in the cycle, you can exile cards from your hand to make it cost less or just pay full retail when casting the spell. March of Burgeoning Life is an interesting take on tutoring creatures, appearing to be made specifically not for Commander play. By being able to search up a creature with the same name as one on the battlefield, it seems made for combo or value-oriented decks. We also can’t overlook that this is a creature tutor that puts the target onto the battlefield at instant-speed.

March of Burgeoning Life is an immediate easy target looks like Dryad Arbor, though it can also go after creatures with strong enters-the-battlefield triggers. Being a cheaper target also helps make the card more castable. It will also help to have multiple copies of creatures that cost more so that March of Burgeoning Life can scale in the late game as well.

So what do you think of March of Burgeoning Life? What creature do you plan on trying to search for first with it?
