    At first I got excited because of Vanndar but then realized it doesn't specifiy minions. Still works as a tutor for whatever big or small card you wanna build a deck around but other than's just okay I guess, but Moonlit Guidance is probably better overall. I do wonder if this helps some sort of Malygos ramp druid be more efficient.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    This is a REALLY good effect, might even make some kind of BIG druid viable. You can use Capture Coldtooth Mine to tutor out Vanndar Stormpike in potential BIG druid decks, or Drek'Thar in aggro decks. Or you could use it in Celestial Alignment druid to draw Celestial Alignment or Lady Anacondra. Capture Coldtooth Mine is so flexible, so it has to see a lot of play. There is a reason Taelan Fordring sees play, and Capture Coldtooth Mine does the same, except it can tutor ANY card, not just a minion. 

    The only bad thing about Capture Coldtooth Mine is that it has no spell school, but regardless this flexible tutorred card draw is just really good. And you have that minion from deadmines that can split it so you get both effects.

    RNG is only fun as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something really good or trash level of bad. If RNG always results in something good, then it's not fun.

    Tutoring is always strong, so I feel like this has great potential. Just can't feel out a current spot for it.

    Arena: No, just no!

    Constructed: Why would you want to play this? Moonlit Guidance, Guess the Weight, Living Seed (Rank 1), Juicy Psychmelon and more all look similar and better. If Capture Coldtooth Mine sees play it's for a very specific use case.

    Card is incredible. Being able to tutor any card so long as it's the most expensive/least expensive is incredibly valuable and decks will be built around this.

    Imagine this in old Malygos Druid to tutor out either Malygos OR Moonfire.

    Im on the fence with this one. With intelligent deck building this card just tutors out exactly what you need so its hard to ignore the obvious potential.

    But most important druid cards are often around the cost of 3-4, or 7-8, and certainly you can't play them without at least considering space for Survival of the Fittest, which is as expensive as it gets.

    Still, tutoring cards are always going to be good at some point. So there's no reason to completely ignore this card.

    Not entirely sure of the flavor, but I love me some tutors so I'm already on board with this. Druid has been getting a lot of interesting card draw tools recently, so I don't think this is an auto-include for just any deck, but it will have a place in some deck.

    I have spoken.

    Faces heavy competition in the draw department, but brings its own unique flavor. I like it.

    Rating cards on coolness factor rather than predicting power because I like screwing up rating averages (and because I suck at predicting real power levels, but we'll ignore that LUL)

    This should be good in at least two types of deck. I'm not sure what those are, but the choose one flexibility is always nice.

    Tutoring is always great, so this should easily find a home somewhere.

    It is an interesting design, with room for possible abuse, I think people will find a way to cheap out something good with this flexible tutor

    This is an insane tutor that would probably replace Taelan Fordring for druid. I'd imagine it belongs in a CA/clown druid where you'd either want to draw Lightning Bloom or Survival of the Fittest

    I don’t know what deck will play this but it’s good.

    This is interesting but has anti synergy with new Guff hero.  Not sure it will see extended play.

    2 mana tutor? Yeah, nothing wrong can happen here. At least not for a druid deck built around a specific combo.

    Very strong targeted draw.  Most of the time you will want to draw high cost cards, but occasionally you will want to draw Lightning Bloom for a combo.  I love the design of the card if nothing less.

    I really like the flexibility of this card. Tutor cards always find play and this one can tutor any card, not just a minion/spell/tribe etc. Add that it is flexible for a big card or a small card and this will be nice to have.

    Unfortunately, common sense isn't as common as it should be.
