HOLY SHIT. Don't look behind him. It's the eye of Sauron.

It's not quite Sea Gate Oracle, but Venser loves him nonetheless.

Remember, in flashback decks this says "draw two cards", thereby making it Mulldrifter.

I must admit that I underestimated this card when I first read it.

It's really good.

2/2 flying body with card advantage (depending on the deck I'm running; might want that card in my graveyard honestly) for 4? Sure.

Every game I cast this in the pre-release, it won me the game. I'd frequently drop a Silent Departure in the yard and get a bomb into my hand two draws faster than it would have come otherwise.

This served me well at pre-release today. A card and an evader on turn four. Not sure if I would use it in constructed but in limited its very nice.

As someone else said, not quite Sea Gate Oracle, but superior in a more aggressive deck. And with all the flashback swirling around, you may as well be better off with a card in your graveyard than in your hand.

Aggro Sea Gate Oracle. Blue loves to attack in Innistrad, so it's fitting that this guy does, too, while keeping your hand stocked.

In a design article, Mark Rosewater said that this was part of a cycle of creatures with ETB X effects. This one counted your spirits and let you draw that many cards, keeping one. In the end, tribal was too pervasive in limited, and the X effect was changed to "2" in all instances. While Tower Geist is severely limited by this late adjustment, at least it fairs better than Farbog Boneflinger!
