I'll add this to the list of cards I'll never get to play with. Right next to Bob and Goyf.

Target player reveals his or her hand. You choose a nonland card from it. That player discards that card. You lose $50.

This is getting reprinted in Theros?!

Holy crap, that block is going to be pretty crazy.

Also lol at people saying this is a bad Duress. 2 life to be able to hit creatures? 2 life is nothing, and more options instantly make it better in my book.

Pretty much confirmed in Theros. Get ready for a fun two years of Standard.

I think you're getting Vintage and Legacy mixed up. This is much more a Legacy card than a Vintage card. And a cards playability/popularity in Legacy, Modern, and Standard impact it's price much more than it's use in vintage. Of course, Vintage cards are usually expensive for collector's reasons.

As for the card, it's good. In competitive games against aggro decks, I almost always prefer Inquisition of Kozilek though. The fact your not losing life can actually really matter against an aggro deck. And for the most part, every card run by an aggro deck can be hit by Inquisition.

Of course, where this card really shines is against control and combo. Where in Legacy, control decks usually run relevant threats that Inquisition can't hit. Such as Big Daddy Jace, Force of Will, Batterskull, ect.

Despite all I've said in this post though, the truth is this card is 40+ USD for a reason. I... (see all)

So glad this is getting reprinted in Theros--I might actually be able to afford a playset now! Barring that, there's a good chance I can unwrap one on once it's released.

Reprinted in Theros (stating the obvious) hence the huge price dip in this. However it is unlikely it will dip further than $20 (at the best a $15 I'd guess), because it's the best discard in Modern, and the 2nd best discard in the whole game behind Hymn to Tourach. Inquisition of Kozilek is the "light" version of Thoughtseize. It's a very good card still, but lives in the shadow of its 'big brother'.

This card has too much potential for just B. As it has already been said, the 2 life is almost meaningless when you consider what you get: The opponent reveals their hand to you, and you get to choose any nonland card. A very powerful effect for such a small cost.

I run 4 of these along with 3 duress. I use discard to protect my combo, and given the choice to have durress or thoughtseize in my opening hand, I would prefer thoughtseize every time.

I give this card 5/5 for absurd power level and insane potential.

Simply the second-best discard spell of all time.
