This is one of the only single cards that can turn mana directly into card draws at instant speed, without having a doom-bladeable body, or tapping requirements.

Think about it. How many times, while playing a control deck, has your opponent's turn gone by without the need for you to cast anything? Usually that means you had 6 or more lands that did nothing that turn that are about to untap anyways. The buyback cost seems high only because it's meant to be used when you didn't need to do anything else.

People have to understand that buyback is OPTIONAL, which is why it's a buyback. Early on this card still allow you to cycle through your library for the right card and being an instant it's safe from permanent destruction. In many mono-blue controls, Whisper is one of the cornerstone of card advantage.

Funny that it works well with seedborn muse.

I like the design of the card, but I feel like Think Twice would be more useful most times.

this is a nice drawing engine without the threat of being a permanent and with the bonus of being an instant.

also this is one of my fauvorite art in the whole game

Of course, if you don't pay the Buyback then this cards accomplishes nothing except to make your deck effectively one card smaller. Which has its advantages I suppose, but is hardly mind-blowing. Buyback is really what makes this worthwhile.
