could be good or could be an expensive 2/2, and unless you expend extra effort you won't know which until it resolves. I will definitely make sure to know the metagame before i use this guy to give him a better chance.

Double excited about him because I'm building a Sedris-centric Sedris, the Traitor King EDH deck. Unearthing this abomination sounds wonderful...then swing for 2! Why not?

Bit expensive for that body but with an insane ability like that its all worth it. This Viashino is going in the Conjurers Closet.

Besides the randomness imparted by your opponents' hands, this could be a major play in EDH because of all the high CMC sorceries and...maybe instants people usually play.

Imagine your opponents face when you choose their own Violent Ultimatum

This card is amazing in edh. It's easily splashable and gives red the option to steal boarwipes and Ultimatums from other players. Personally I've been targeted by this a few times, and among others, the cards he hijacked were Final Judgement, Phyrexian Rebirth and a Return to Dust.
Honestly, if you've got access to this card in your edh deck, you should be hard pressed not to play it. At worst, just target the guy playing black and hijack a tutor or something.

@sonorhC
Except you can still force them to discard it (by casting it for 0). If you hit a spell that can be cast, it is almost always useful (you don't really want to cast wrath of god when you're the only one with creatures).

The card, as some have said, is by turns extremely powerful, and completely unplayable. When you hit it is obviously great. However, in the situations where it's a 5-mana 2/2 that lets you look at their hand when it comes in, it's terrible, so very hit-or-miss. I wish it let you choose and force them to discard a card if you didn't get an instant or sorcery. As it is, you need to be as sure as possible you'll get something if you cast it, especially when your opponent can cast his instants with the trigger on the stack.

When you do get something good though, it is a 3-for-1 (or more), so I'm not complaining that much.

The name reminds me of the SharpClaw from Star Fox Adventures.

"You pay sorceries to pass."
"You pass. But don't tell boss."

Interesting revisit to Reversal of Fortune.

Great bomb against blue and red decks. I'd say he is usually worth the price of admission. Of course there are plenty of ways to exploit the 'enters the battlefield' trigger. He isn't perfect, but is certainly usable and great for EDH where people often play with very high costed spells.

Guys, you're missing the point! It's a usable viashino!

Friends with Jace's Mindseeker. It would be funny to pull an opponant's Voidwalk can combo with any creature that gets boosts from casting spells.

Would I be able to use the cipher effect on my opponent's midnight recovery if i cast it using the shaman? think so, as I was the controller of the midnight recovery?

Heartless Summoning and start playing their draw spells or ramp spells.

I was at 7 lands playing zombie tribal, one away from Army Of The Damned. My opponent was playing U/R Talrand and I had just killed Talrand.

Me: I play some random zombies. Your turn. ( I really wanted to use Army, I just pulled it from a booster xD )

Him: I play Mindclaw Shaman.


Me: What's this? *pulls over card to take a look*



*sound of me scooping*


5/5
