Also gives you a good chance to view your opponent's library to understand strategies and combos, ergo you know what to stop, why, and how.

@ AMB211:
I had to look this up.

Rule 601.1a states, "Some effects still refer to 'playing' a card. 'Playing a card' means playing that card as a land or casting that card as a spell, whichever is appropriate."

So if you were to choose a nonland from your opponent's deck, you would "cast" the spell. The next rule (601.2) states that part of casting a spell is paying its costs. Since Praetor's Grasp does not explicitly say otherwise, you DO have to pay all costs for the card you are casting.

And finally, since you are casting a spell, it can be countered in the normal fashion.

This card in EDH is such a bomb. Every time you can steal a killer counterspell or something utterly powerful from your opponents' decks... I play this card every game and almost always pick Cryptic Command. What's that? I don't have any cards in my hand to counter your Exsanguinate? FROM THE DARKNESS.

Not sure where I could fit this in an actual deck, but Grasping my opponent's Batterskull in the middle of a draft was fun, fun, fun. Of course, he used Divine Offering to blow it up next turn, but still. Fun.

If nothing else you can use this to grab land. Against most decks in standard Sword of Feast and Famine is probably a good choice.
