How many times have you drafted an amazing card outside of your colors? Did you ever wish you could trade it for something more useful? Revealed today May 19, 2014 in an article by Mark Rosewater, Deal Broker is one of the newest Magic: The Gathering cards spoiled from Wizards of the Coast's upcoming expert expansion set Conspiracy that'll let you do just that.

Deal Broker - 3
Artifact Creature - Construct (Rare)
Draft Deal Broker face up.
Immediately after the draft, you may reveal a card in your card pool. Each other player may offer you one card in his or her card pool in exchange. You may accept any one offer.
Tap: Draw a card, then discard a card.
2/3

Let's be a little realistic here: Nobody is going to trade you their Dack Fayden for your Selvala, Explorer Returned, however getting a Marchesa, the Black Rose from a player who rare drafted it third pack and can't play it is a bit more feasible. Your best bet is to choose a powerful common or uncommon which you've drafted outside your colors, and entertain offers which may help your deck. While Deal Broker may give you a slightly better card pool you're also giving your rival a potential threat which may come back to haunt or kill you.

As for Deal Broker itself, three colorless mana for a 2/3 looter is pretty spicy, and can go into any deck. The ability to transform dead lands into business spells and dig for bombs shouldn't be ignored. This Magic player likes long and grindy games, and Deal Broker can have a huge impact over the course of a drawn out duel.

How will you use Deal Broker?
