Goes great with Violent Eruption, Fiery Temper, Obsessive Search, and Reckless Wurm.

Who knew a card that made you yourself discard randomly would be a tournament darling?

I just love the fact that this card is kind of a statement that "card filtering (draw + random discard) is now red". Yeah I know Burning Inquiry did that, but almost anything can be red if you 1) lose card advantage AND 2) share the benefit with your opponent. Well anything but enchantment removal, I guess... But I did find this card more convincing.

Deceptively good. For decks that can run it, this is usually better than Think Twice. It's much better at smoothing out land draws, since you're twice as likely to draw a land you need, but (depending on the size of your hand) there's probably only a 1-in-3 to 1-in-5 chance of having to discard it. The fact that you could be discarding another flashback spell is simply a bonus. Most UR decks should run this card before Think Twice. It's been called the new Preordain, but Preordain never got you card advantage on its own either.

It puts a card in your hand and one in your graveyard (plus itself) Which makes it more efficient than think twice. Of course, since this card wants you to have things that work with the graveyard you would want BOTH it and think twice in your deck.

This card really defines the set for me. My favorite card in a while. 5/5 for flavor and function.

Looks like it has potential to be really good in Pyromancer Ascension. I'd definitely play it casually, but I wonder if it's worth the risk in Modern.

It bugs me that this was printed in the same set as Think Twice's reprint. WotC doesn't usually aim for such subtle differences between two cards in one set.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
