I play this with chains of Mephistopheles so I shut their card advantage down, while mine runs rampant

This is card advantage when it is best.

Confidant aggro is the best way to win any game ^^

Chandler Bing would be on one of the best black cards.

Wow, it only forces me to have only cards with very low mana cost in my deck...
And soon I'll likely have to burn cards cause I can only have 7 in my hand...
I'm new to magic, so I hope I'll one day understand.

@Zhared: You know, it's kinda weird. I thought the same thing. It's an uncanny resemblance, almost like how Snapcaster resembles that Tiago guy.

Must be a coincidence. ;-)

Needs core set reprint. Too bad people aren't satisfied by Dark Tutelage.

I think this is the best creature ever printed.
And you really have to use it in a game to see just how good it is.
He has won me so many games just through pure card advantage.
Absolutely brilliant.
5/5

What makes this card so great is that most opponents will not realize that they lost to this card in the long run. Seems innocuous at first, but when you're drawing multiple threats faster than opponents can deal with, then you know you have a winner.

Life loss can be mitigated with cards like Umezawa's Jitte and Basilisk Collar. Sensei's Divining Top could be used to make sure you lose as little life as possible, which many decks already do, but I rather just stick to more aggressive options.

@ gmanp2

"1) Vulnerable to creature removal. Enchantments are harder for most colors to kill."

This is definitely the biggest drawback for this compared to Arena. But worth pointing out that if your opponent uses up a removal on him, that's a removal they're not using on something else (which is true for Arena I suppose, but you'll probably have more creatures than enchantments).

"2) You take on average a lot more damage than from Phyrexian Arena / Bloodgift Demon and friends, unless you run MOSTLY 2 CMC or lower cards."

Running low mana costs does indeed solve part of that problem, but you need to remember how many cards there are that let you stack your top cards to make sure the specific card the Confidant gets you is cheap (possibly 0 mana!). Granted, this is more true in Legacy than Modern (Modern doesn't have Ponder, Preordain, Sensei's, Jace the Mind Sculptor, Brainstorm, or for a non-Blue card, Sensei's Divining Top), but there are still cards in Modern that can do it for y... (see all)

My nickname for this card
"The Riddler"

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, watch "Batman Forever"

@Azazyel

The human guy is the "dark confidant". A confidant is someone that you put your trust into, in this case an advisor.

If you remember the Ravnica plane, the Church Orzhova, the Church of Deals was ruled by the Ghost Council of Orzhova. The other Church leaders have gotten bloated (Castigate) on the thoughts and riches they have extracted (Conjurer's Ban) from the people. It seems that the House Dimir has infilitrated Orzhov (and maybe the other guilds) by sending these Lurking Informants and spies (Dimir Doppelganger) around.

In short, the fat thing is more likely an Orzhov Pontiff, not a demon. And the thin guy is the Dark Confidant.

oh, and @JFM2796
The zero-cost-suspend-only cards were banned because of cascade.
