Godsire, Elvish Piper, Avatar of Woe, Arcanis the Omnipotent a few strong activated abilities, who needs surprise

p.s. don't forget that you can activate a card's ability the turn it becomes the top card of your library, and the upkeep of the next turn before you draw the card

I believe this is definitely an underrated card. While I will agree it can be hard to use and does give away the element of surprise, there are many sick combinations that this card can produce. One such combination that I have come up with is with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and any card that untaps all of your creatures like To Arms! or Vitalize. That spells game over.

I'm goping to have to disagree with your combos, demonic angel. It works so much better with things that actually have activated abilities.

It doesn't benefit from static abilities.

So, so underplayed. Hey, combos with Jace, the Mindsculptor to Brainstorm sweet artifacts or creatures onto your library.

I used this once when a dispeller's capsule came up and sacced skill borrower to destroy an enchantment.

But yeah, unless there's some sick combo I'm not seeing here, the card can, at best, give you one more of whatever one-time use artifact you may want to fire off, like scourglass.

I can't see it as being extraordinarily worth it, though. It'd be awesome in a circumstance where an activated ability on a card is AMAZING, but the card itself has a high mana cost. Even then, you only get it for a single turn, unless you're using Jace, the Mind Sculptor to keep that card on the top of your deck.

Liliana Vess and this card are best friends.

hm , Level up is an activated ability. Has a small limited use with Brimstone mage

That really depends on the skillity of the players to be honest
