RCotD #219

Random Card of the Day #219:

Infernal Tutor - 1B
Reveal a card from your hand. Search your library for a card with the same name as that card, reveal it, put it into your hand, then shuffle your library. Hellbent — If you have no cards in hand, instead search your library for a card, put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.

A balanced version of Demonic Tutor? Without Hellbent I want to say it's like a bad Transmute, and with Hellbent it's just a strictly worse version of the aforementioned Demonic Tutor

Now that said this card is really good. Trying to make it compare to one of the best fetch in the game and then saying "it's worse than it" doesn't really say much about the card. This card could most definitely see play in many formats (well, maybe not singleton/EDH) and has the potential to be a very clutch topdeck.

Constructed: 4/5
Limited: 2/5, honestly how many cards could it pull without Hellbent?

Trivia on Hellbent:
If a hellbent ability of a spell is a self-replacement that changes the effect of that spell, the number of cards in its controller's hand is checked as the spell resolves. It is not checked when the spell is played.
