'Mind Twist for 4."
"Why not 5?"
"Dream Salvage"

This card is an example of the kind of superb card design that makes Magic the Gathering an absolute BLAST to play.

It's not particularly impressive on its own (in fact, it'll do nothing most of the time), but it quickly gains synergy with cards that force multiple discards, like Mind Rot, Stupor, and Hymn to Tourach, which already range from strong to devastating on their own. But that hardly even scratches the surface!

Suddenly Delirium Skeins and Last Rites seem amazing, and Wistful Thinking - usually just a strange variant on Mind Rot - turns into Mindculling+ (target opponent net-loses two cards, you net-gain two cards, compared to Mindculling's two and one, respectively) for 2Blue or BlackBlue instead of 5Blue!

Then there are cards like Wheel of Fortune, Flux, Windfall, and Wheel and Deal/... (see all)

Dream turn 1 combo: Swamp,Dark Ritual X 2,Hymn to Tourach x 2, Dream Salvage.

EDIT: @Jax: "Only enough for one Dream Salvage, don't forget you need one mana to cast 2nd Dark Ritual."

That's why I didn't follow "Dream Salvage" with "x2" like I did for Hymn and DR. I know, I know. By playing only ONE dream salvage in my combo, you're drawing a measly FOUR cards! Pish Tosh! ;-)

Wheel of Fortune
Memory Jar

This card has what it takes. A cheap and flexible mana cost, Instant speed, and good chance for card advantage. It just only works in the right deck.

@Kragash: Windfall is banned in Legacy because it enables certain unfair combos that involve drawing many cards. Look around for the Spanish Inquisition deck - it plays Slithermuse as a Draw 7 effect and can win a quarter of its games on turn one.

This card's potential to draw many cards makes me think it might be possible to break in Legacy. It would be interesting against a Breakthrough dredge deck. "You drew 4? I draw 8!"

Geth's Grimoire seems a little better.

I like it with Burning Inquiry.

combine this with Wistful Thinking. Target opponent draws 2 then discards 4. Then you draw 4 with salvage. Not bad for a mere 4 mana cost. If you have Liliana's Caress deck, what else do you need?

Don't forget to throw Cephalid Coliseum in that deck, too.

Yes it would. It would work quite well in my deck of hybrid black and blue cards. A lot of my cards abilities have to do with drawing and discarding cards and with such a cheap mana cost it is a very well balanced card...it just needs to be played at a decent time
