...and then, Yawgmoth's Will to get back the other pile.

This card in comparison to the original is very reminiscent of how magic has changed in the last few years. The gameplay is relatively constant (of course, there are millions of possible decks within that constant) but the flavor has increased exponentially. I mean just look at Jace here. Now the cards wrap around tangible characters at a level they never did for, say, Gerrard. Furthermore, you might notice he's sort of holding a few sparks and dropping a few more. This is a perfect sync between the card's function and flavor. Jace is taking the smaller pile!

In terms of running it, however, I prefer ancestral memories for legacy and foresee for modern.

Sounds like Mr. Forsythe will choke if he sees a yugioh card.

Play it on your opponent during a turn in which you've Mindslaver'd him, and you can make him give you a 5-card pile.

New flavor text pretty much explains the card's function :)

Leaves your opponent trying to guess which combo pieces you've got in your hand; often, if you're casting this, it doesn't matter how they separate the two piles.

@XTwistedsoulX: Don't worry, we all are. At least some of us have the strength to admit it. ;)

You just have to say the flavor text when you play this card.

Whoa. The flavor text is WIN. I'd love to say that to my opponent's face! ;D

I wish this card cost U and Ancestral Recall didn't exist so we could have such a fun card in the power 9. Only downside is it'd be banned in legacy :(

Since when does blue have full control of the library?

Let's see:

1- CMC 4 - Just one blue mana. So you can splash it in every deck with blue.
2- Your opponent choose, so you can tell what he can deal with and what he cannot.
3- Type Instant - Anything else to say?

This card gets better with a bad opponent; in the WORST of the case, you are drawing the BEST card of the top five. In the BEST case, you draw FOUR cards.

5/5

I don't like the mechanic on a blue card, since it should be contrary to blue to let an opponent choose the cards.

I disagree. Fact or Fiction is deception at its purest. It's like an election where both candidates are in the pocket of the same entity. It's the illusion of choice. Deception and illusion are the mode of operation for a blue mage.

I hate the artwork. It makes Jace look like a netherworld horror.

I agree with Aaron on the art, not badly drawn, but not how I'd like to see it portrayed. However, I LOVE the flavor text.

@ Aaron:

Gush and Daze aren't overpowered per se. Both support a defensive role, pushing you back (in time) and is well balanced against mana acceleration on the other hand.

I reintroduced the mechanic within my set, but this set also includes hybrid Two or Red mana for red, Phyrexian Black phyrexian mana for black, convoke & Wild Growth for white, some sort of echo and a higher mana output for green.

But to get to Fact or Fiction:
I don't like the mechanic on a blue card, since it should be contrary to blue to let an opponent choose the cards. That's why I like scry much more. If you are the psychological archtype of the color you play and you're playing against a red deck, it feels wrong to let the red player // archtype to choose. So for me, a Diabolic Tutor fits much better to blue than this card, since the first one gives you FULL control about your library and that's what blue is re... (see all)

I love this card's art, but I hate the flavor text. Jace is supposed to be a super-genius, but he can't handle basic grammar? For that matter, I'm virtually never happy to see the modern idiom showing up in my fantasy game (Dwarven Berserker is one of the few exceptions just because it's so obviously a gag).
