Great with Thunderscape or Thornscape Familiar, or any mana cost reducing spells.

Mana filter + cantrip. I see no problems, officer.

I don't understand why more people don't use this!

It's essentially a free cantrip - helping thin down your deck and giving you access to the cards you want WITHOUT costing you any mana! And that's even before we start to consider its colour-fixing qualities!

Having played it a fair bit and drafted it highly in Shadowmoor/Eventide, I realise the issues with having it in your opening hand - basically having less 'known information' - and in possibly missing an early 1-drop because we drew this card. Not to mention the problems with having this in-hand and no card we can definitely cast with our potential mana - to draw is to risk mana burn and a missed opportunity to mana-fix later; to not is to risk a missed opportunity to cast a spell that turn.

Regardless, in limited, I'd rather play this card than a merely average one - helping me draw my great cards - and in constructed, it's been a great boon to my 5-colour scarecrow deck and can help out in standard Naya/Jund decks.

@ Bezman
Well it's not like it fits in every deck out there, you know. But it's absolutely amazing in Storm!

Truly, a free draw.

infinite combo: Training Grounds+Izzet Guildmage+Manamorphose= Infinite mana

What to do with that mana? Why copy Lightning Bolt infinitely with the Guildmage!

I would really love to be corrected and shown other cards that meet the following criteria...

but I beleive, this is the only card in magic the gathering that DOES NOT impact you in a postiive or negative manner at all in terms of card/mana use (besides deck thinning, storm counter and mana fixing)

It replaces itself card wise and mana wise without adding or subtracting anything from the field at all.

It is the absolute equivalent to draw a card for 0 mana if you we're to discount the fact that this game requires mana to play.

Very interesting card and is very transparent in terms of how to use it. You just..... Use it if you run red/green and have access to it. It has no draw back at all and all you have to gain is a new card and fixed mana.

Insane card. Pure cantrip at virtually no cost that lets you fix your mana in addition.
