this card is best used on yourself so you can cast a zombify or a living death

this card is probably underrated

Monomania, is another card that had a nice effect but is set back by its cost. if this does come out on turn 5, your opponent won't have but 3 cards in their hand anyway, and mind sludge would still be better for this anyway.

However, I can see some application of this card as a sideboard against another control deck that has Consecrated Sphinx running in it. If you are running control as well (you kinda of are if you are using this), then it might help you get the edge.

I guess you can argue that you could mana ramp into this spell, and that would be cool. Lets say you are playing Green/Black and you have black in just for control so you know what you Greens are up against. Mana ramping into this could help get it out on turn 4 or if you are amazing 3, but that is a fairy tail to be honest.

If you like this card here is what you need to due, use surgical extraction instead. You will put about the same number of cards in the grave than you would with this on turn five. And more imp... (see all)

Actually, this effect is on par with Persecute in my opinion. And Persecute was an obscene card.

Mono black will always have Mind Sludge, but all the Orzhovs and Golgaris could still use this card.

If for some reason, you think it's a good idea to discard your own hand, play One with Nothing.

I see no purpose to play it, other than to give your opponent an advantage...

That being said, Resurrection/Unearth/Madness/Flashback is viable with it.

I'd love to see this resolve after someone draws half their deck in EDH.

Mind Sludge did the same better, since 99% of the time you reach 5 mana, they're going to have far less than 5 cards in hand.

I really want to go "Swamp, Dark Ritual, Dark Ritual, Monomania!" on turn 1.
