Today Oct. 17, 2013 the Japanese edition of www.DailyMTG.com spoiled Restore, a new "Magic: The Gathering" card from "Nature of the Beast" deck of "Commander (2013 Edition)." This uncommon green sorcery spell is sort of like a Regrowth that can only target lands, however even more interesting is that Restore can steal them from an opponent's graveyard and puts it directly onto the battlefield for you to use right away.
Restore - 1G
Put target land card from a graveyard onto the battlefield under your control.
"See, the land itself raises an altar to the ascendancy of nature."
-Mayael the Anima
There's a ton of special nonbasic lands floating around in commander, and for every Maze of Ith there's a Strip Mine or Wasteland to destroy it. Forget Crucible of Worlds, nothing's sweeter than swiping your opponent's Vault of the Archangel to ward off potential attackers. Of course there's a plethora of other nonbasic lands to swipe from Mutavault to Kessig Wolf Run.
Because Restore puts the land onto the battlefield directly, it's a weird Farseek type ramp effect. You'll be able to actually come out ahead if you're nabbing a land from an opponent's graveyard that one of your other rivals destroyed. One way to ensure your is always relevant is it pack your deck with fetchlands. You'll be able to accelerate your mana production while thinning your deck and increasing the chances of drawing business spells.
How will you use Restore?
