Obviously intended to be used on one's self. Decent combo potential, but not the best card. 3/5

Intuition is the more expensive option (both mana cost and $) and far more versatile.

Intuition is good, but way more style points with this

Intuition is better, but this card is still a good budget alternative.

I use it in my U/G Madness deck to fetch answers to certain threats. It can fetch Ray of Revelation, Deep Analysis, Ancient Grudge, or Roar of the Wurm, so it can let you get a lot of different things depending on the situation. Too bad there aren't more useful cards with Flashback, though.

And I choose Roar of the wurm, and Roar of the wurm... Oh! And Roar of the wurm!

triple lingering souls is also a legacy power level play :D

intuition is more versatile, but who wants to pay 40 bucks for a card anyway

Nope- obviously meant to be used on whoever you feel like. On yourself = tutor effect to extend your hand to include your graveyard, a time-honored MTG tradition. Against your opponent, though, you can target flashback cards that have high costs that are only really good when you can get both the original casting and the flashback. You can play this early and sink their Deep Analyses or what not, and they might not feel comfortable spending that life to get only 2 cards that early in the game. :)

This reminds me of Buried Alive in its subtleties...

If they reprint this in Innistrad block... crazy shit will go down.

Obviously great for self–mill, but very useful on your opponent as well. As DarthParallax stated, you can use it to graveyard their high cost flashback cards. Or else you can choose to find no flashback cards and simply use this to look through their entire library and see what they have in their deck.
