Can You Rate the Card, According to Gatherer? Quiz #3
Just like Can You Rate Number One and Number Two, I copied and pasted ten random cards from Gatherer, and supplied their current Oracle wording. You need to determine what order players placed these cards in, from worst to best, using Gatherer’s five star rating system. I suggest writing your answers down before clicking any buttons. Ready? Then let’s go.
Invasion – Explosive Growth
Kicker (You may pay an additional as you cast this spell.)
Target creature gets +2/+2 until end of turn. If Explosive Growth was kicked, that creature gets +5/+5 until end of turn instead.
Theros – Fate Foretold

When Fate Foretold enters the battlefield, draw a card.
When enchanted creature dies, its controller draws a card.
