More combos than you can shake a stick at.

Man chippy, you just never get tired of these amazing card/artwork combos, don't you?

I have become convinced that this is the most misread card in all of MTG. Its like people have combo's for the card before they even finish reading it. I've seen people try to imprint some crazy stuff.
Balance, burning wish, pyroclasm, demonic tutor, even saw someone try to imprint Wrath of God once.
And just from comments posted here...
dragon fodder = no
time walk = no
wrench mind, duress, rampant growth, rite of flame, shahrazad = no no no no no

day of the dragons ??? = squirrelbeary has a sense of humor ;)

I don't know why people are asking about split cards, because the notes here in gatherer explain it. The shenanigans work. Research//Development is absolutely insane with this, as a result.

Respond to Isochron Scepter with Stifle.

Proceed to make "dead stick" jokes.

As broken as it is, I do really like the design of it. Had there been some other form of balancing feature (Perhaps requiring a discard in the cost to make this the "Spellshaper Stick," of sorts) would've helped, but I doubt it. Truly, the almighty stick deserves it's position as the game's best artifact.

I actually don't love the artwork as much as the other FTV relics. Don't get me wrong, it's good, but have you guys ween sol ring! That's INSANE!

And counterspell is probably my favorite one for here, because orim's chant will get you beaten up.

@Cloworora: Dude, don't go there. You cannot and should never judge a card based on which cards are able to deal with it. By that very same logic, cards like Baneslayer Angel, Jace the Mind Sculptor, heck, even Black Lotus and Time Walk would be bad because you can answer them with Doomblade/Boomerang/Force of Will herp 'a derp.
No, what you should be judging a card on is much they help you win the game, and how much they demand answers. (And Isochron Scepter is a card that demands answers)

The card. The rod. The legend.

You might note that this pretty little number is the highest rated card on the gatherer.
Better than all the Moxes, Black Lotus, Sensei's Divining Top, Sol Ring...
