It's not exactly giving your opponent a choice on which card he might be discarding; it's random at first, then he has to decide whether or not to keep it. I kinda like this card, especially in EDH when people are more likely to play useful, high-costing cards, and being devil's advocate about such things is not always a bad idea, it makes the game fun!

Almost like a bad disruption scepter, but with a little minigame thrown in.

Baconradar's right. Fact or Fiction sucks.

Giving your opponent choice is always a bad, bad thing.

Funny idea, bad result. Should either cost less to play and activate, or it should do both (discard and cause lifeloss at once).

Why would they print both when disrupting scepter existed at the same time? The scepter is superior in each and every way.

Good to throw in with a land destruction deck as a source of colorless damage

I always liked this more than Disrupting Scepter because of the random part, truth be told (how often did hand sizes dip below four back then, anyway? No real guarantee the Scepter would strike something important without a prior Mind Twist); the "risk" that they might pay life to keep a hold of the card was acceptable (and you knew they HAD that card, to boot). Granted we have things like Megrim nowadays to obliquely emulate both the discard and the life loss.

Rather silly, since your opponent will always make the best choice.

I enjoy the flavor of this card. It speaks to white's austerity. "Do you really need that card? If your possessions suck the life out of you (as they often do in real life) are you willing to pay that price?" Nice embodiment of natural law, wizards!

. . . and then there are the sneaky things you can do with this card. Such as have a spirit Cairn on the field ;)
