Im sensing that youve never actually played competitively in your life have you? Dark confidant is clearly the best card drawing card of those 3 though he is restricted by what deck youre running. Try to keep in mind that slightly over a third of your deck is going to be mana which costs 0 so he wont be hurting you then. oh, and he's a 2/1 not a 1/1. telling time is ok, but it is really only meant for a combo deck. It provides no card advantage whatsoever so its really not any good for non combo stuff. gaeas blessing isnt bad, but there is no mill deck around and the non draw ability isnt likely to matter.

Dark Confidant ftw. First of all, he's 2/1. Not a 1/1. Second of all, you don't take damage if you draw a land. Third of all, the damage normally isn't that big of a deal if you draw a win condition or two. ;p And last, but certainly not least, you can swing with it and smack the opponent around.

That explains why so many peeps have been using it, neh? ;p

bob is the best card advantge engine followed by think twice and then whispers of the muse. blessing and telling time are good cards they fill different rolls since telling is to dig for combo and blessing works as win condition or arse saver.

Dark Confidant is the best card in standard right now, 2-mana creature with 'kill me or you lose' stamped on it is pretty damn good. Heck, he's almost solely responsible for me playing Icatian Javelineers over Suntail Hawk in WW, and making room for Serrated Friggin' Arrows.

My favourite draw card is Sinbad. Get's you out of Situations where you're mana starved or can take any dredge card out of the grave to your hand. All around solid card.

Lol.

Out of three you listed, only Gaea, actually draws cards, so it is the best card-drawer of those. Razz
