This is a really interesting card, but it's also really weird.

I get the flavour, the idea is that the crazy, passionate, imuplsive red mage is just leaping headfirst into research in blue and white magic and there are obvious risks in doing that.

But there are few cards that do /nothing/ in a mono colour deck of their colour.

Bo Levar is creeping in the background.

It doesn't work with Library of Leng. First you search for the card, then you discard a card at random, at which time Library would have you put the card on top of your deck. Then you shuffle. The card would end up back in your deck. I think, in EDH at least, I'd rather send the enchantments to my graveyard anyway.

What do instants and enchantments have in common? Both is "play your opponent's deck" territory, with cards like Swerve, Reroute, Confiscate, Persuasion.. Anyway, a very strong card in the late-game that can search for pretty effective situational cards and even "fake" sorceries like Return To Dust! :)

Just remember that we're not in "graveyard matters" colors.. Edit: Nevertheless, there's Life Burst, Flame Burst, Aether Burst! :) Also, there are flashback cards, including Think Twice, and there's Accumulated Knowledge..

Run with Library of Leng and this suddenly becomes a very powerful tutor-engine. Add something that allows you to draw at instant speed and you're guaranteed to get the card your need. And while you're running library of leng, Gamble becomes a feasible tutor for anything.

Also, this could probably be used with madness cards to some degree. When you're out of cards, fetch a Fiery Temper and cast it through madness.

Why "open the vault" when you have "Replenish"
