Pretty good on first turn with a dark ritual.

I have used this card extensively in the past, before Diabolic Tutor was released, and it did just fine then, but Infernal Tutor and Diabolic are generally better. Though, sometimes, waiting for that one moment for your opponent to tap all but one land or tap out entirely so you can play this and pull your game changer/win condition, has always made for some epic games. 3/5

Opening draw in my casual, non-Standard (but perfectly Vintage-legal) B/U deck last night: this, two swamps, island, two Dark Rituals, Hypnotic Specter and Lotus Petal.

Turn 1: Swamp, Ritual, Rhystic Tutor. Hello, Liliana Vess. Make yourself at home in my hand, miss.
Turn 2: Swamp, Lotus Petal, sack it, out comes the Specter.
Turn 3: Island, then Ritual for Ms. Vess. Specter swings. Two discard with Lili's +1 ability, or settle for one discard from Specter and I can -2 and tutor for Necropotence. Later, counters, bounces and black creature removal for anything that threatens Liliana as I build her up with discards and proliferate, then I win with opponent's dead creatures a few turns later.

Easier than you think turn 3, much harder later on.

Dark Ritual was in the same set.

You play this before turn five or so and not many guys with competitive decks are going to have mana open, unless they were going to counter it anyways.

This is one of those "Back in tha day," cards that many of us look back on fondly but as with many of the older cards today's game environment makes it hard to appreciate it as we once did.
