Used to play with 2x Braingeyser in my Red/Blue burn/counter deck. Now that I have Niv-Mizzet in it I may have to throw one of these back in it. Have miled opponets to death with it in the past while having manaflare out.

They didn't reprint it because instead, Mind Spring. Because apparently 'target player' is too much to ask for.

@EoE
It also makes sense that it's impossible to not compare old to new. The cards will naturally ALWAYS be older or newer than one another, lest in the same block. We could make the same argument about the actual literal age of the cards as well, but that actually would be useless.

BSZ is an instant, which is a huge deal IMO. Sad part is it's hard to really utilize any of these. Prosperity is a card that can enable your win cons with it's whole 1-2 extra cards, and if you have a card/libraries matter deck, it doesn't matter if you've drawn the opponent cards.

@Eved
I sort of agree, but at the same time there wasn't teams at the time (I think?) The game was a 1-on-1 game. Making cards like this, the Rack, Vice etc.. make sense in other environments is better than us being left with less useful cards I think.

Frankly, people will complain no matter what they do. As a 40k player I'm happy Wizards is always errataing, answering questions reliably, building strong rulesets etc instead o... (see all)

Note that with the erreta you can let your teammates draw cards. I love when cards are changed so that they can be played differently then when they were originally printed. And by like, I mean it's stupid. Stop changing what cards do. It is annoying. Once I know what my card does I should always know what it does. Not have what it does change on some random thursday afternoon making it more useful for my 2HG than the cards I was using the day before.

@EpitomeOfEvilness
We have to compare old cards with new cards, not because they are old and new, but because they are the cards that have similar effects. You are right though in that neither this or Blue Sun's Zenith is strictly better than the other.

@Saxophonist
Don't be a jerk.

@Aradimar
Look at the earlier printings, there are plenty of comments for you to read.

that is a utterly stupid comment. This card was around before BSZ ever was. Don't compare older cards to newer ones. Thats not to say that it isn't better, but just not to compare those. Besides, this card is a sorcery, and BSZ shuffles back, so its not strictly better.

I play with three Braingeyser's in my white blue deck. I like to wait a while till I can draw at least 4 cards with it so that I get more cards then if I played an ancestral recall. Gives an awesome card drawing advantage.

I like the original card text better than the revised. "Force opponent to" do something has a cooler feel to it then "Target player"
