Long-Term Plans still gets around this.
Still nice for disrupting top-of-deck tutors.

Plays double-time with Bitter Ordeal! Need a playset! Looks like it'll be an unwanted cheap rare to get! Happy day.

Totaly shuts down Liliana's tutor ability! Also, can be quite useful in a contro deck, because you know whats coming, and your opponent doesnt.

Art de***ion: Jin-Gitaxias doing his laundry. "Oh Yawgmoth this is taking forever!"
This is a great griefer for Commander, where shuffling and top-of-the-deck tutors are everywhere. At worst it'll be annoying; at best, you can exile a crucial combo piece.

This card is almost a Flaming Lips album

Somebody in your play group use way too many tutors?

Ever get mad when you see a mono-colored deck running fetchlands?

Look no further than Psychic Surgery!!!

It's lean!!!!
stops Mirage tutors in their tracks!!

And gets that guy who spends a half hour every turn looking for the best option to maybe play another deck!!!

Psychogenic Probe sold separately.

Hmm, is it worth it to include this against Caw-Blade?

This is one of those win more cards.. but when it works it's a nice way to keep the tide of gameplay in your favor. There will be plenty of times where exiling or rearranging their cards wont do much, besides just removing a card from their library that they weren't going to draw anyways. It also requires that they be shuffling somehow, and while there are cards that do this, you wont get to use it every turn. The closest you can get to doing that is by using thada del, except a thada del and psychic surgery combo doesn't particularly win games when it goes active.. it's just a fun trick.

On the plus side there are a number of ways that your opponent might be shuffling, including fetch lands, certain types of tutors, jace, and others. I just wouldn't want to draw this card on turn 5 hoping that they shuffle enough times to make it count.

I actually think it's a good card, only that I also am big on consistency. I prefer cards that garauntee they will work vs. cards that may ... (see all)
