In my draw pain deck, I use this to recover from any mobs I can't counter or doom blade out. Combined with a double cast each time, you get a significant life boost, usually enough to carry you through to the end. Draw pain decs are always a close win, sometimes I comes down to just a bit of life.

In my UB control deck, this is my win condition.

8 life?
This thing can be retraced throughout the game, not just once.
Just have the right amount of lands to toss, and you could possibly kill your oponnent with this spell alone.
In casual, this card is quite fun with Sanguine Bond.

I think that someone should build an extremely effective permission/control deck, where the sole win condition is this...that would be torture

I like to run it with Dakmor Salvage in a retrace deck alongside some Raven's Crimes and Crypt Ghasts.

Great card, don't know why it isn't rated higher. Draw this and the longer the game goes, the more land you can draw to retrace. Kicks ass for casual.

i wish it hits creatures too and made it cost {B}{B}{B} to balance it out...

or would that be over-powered?..

hmm, want to make a modern deck based around this and knight of the reliquary, the mana base could be a bit messy but this doesn't need to come out until i need to finish and shocklands are less of a problem with this around.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
