Every card that somehow involves Bolas is amazing epic, I love it.

Blue and black get some of the most flavorful gold cards: Dimir Cutpurse, Recoil, Consult the Necrosages, Agony Warp, Shadowmage Infiltrator, and Undermine (et al). This is great stuff. Man, it is good to play BU.

It might be rather situational; you may not have a creature in your grave as early as turn 3, and it cannot counter noncreature spells. But if the conditions are satisfied this card is excellent card advantage; for one card, you reclaim a used one and thwack one of your opponents!

@Binaro: Odd... I saw the "Choose one or both" first. But that might have something to do with the fact that it's the first four words of the text.

I'm ordering a copy of this card for my Sedris, the Traitor King EDH deck. I want it NOW. Seriously, cast this in response to a general hitting the battlefield, and in the late game when a general might have already entered and left play several times, this can stop an opponent's turn cold while you get a fatty of your own back for your next turn.

Think of it this way: You're getting an Essence Scatter that, instead of cantripping, lets you find the card you want to draw, for a mere {B} extra. Catrippy Scatters usually cost {2}{U}{U} (see Bone to Ash)

It's good, but don't hesitate to use it when you have to, even if you don't get to use both effects.

It's spot removal and recursion in one card. Awesome in Dralnu, Lich Lord, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind and The Mimeoplasm commander.

Pretty cool, but you have to make sure you'll be getting the max out of this spell. Play a lot of critters that can sacrifice themselves. Really solid in a right deck. 4/5.

So it's both a Remove Soul and Disentomb. Nice...

one of the better 'stick an extra effect on it' counters in awhile.
