I really like this card. Black has another really nice tutor in EDH now. I can't wait for the prerelease to try my hand at pulling this and a few other cards for my EDH decks.

EDIT: Insane power level. Even at X=2 it tutors for two cards, which can win you the game in the format, next turn. I usually cast for X=5, tutor up Omniscience, a manaless counter (Such as Force of Will or Foil, and three Planeswalkers (Usually Tamiyo, Nicol Bolas, and Jace), then proceed to win the next turn, barring Krosan Grip, which, to be honest, does show up occasionally to ruin my day.

I know, EDH. But still, black = pain for power. Where's the pain? How about:

"Search your library for up to X cards and put those cards into your hand. Lose 1 life for each card you put into your hand this way. Then shuffle your library."

Sort of a Yawgmoth's Bargain, no? Don't get me wrong, this is a sweet black power. But still, I think something's missing here.

The only deck that I have this is my Door To Nothingness Deck. After Boundless Realms secures the required 14+ mana, I use 7 to search for a Fog and Door, 5 to put down the door, 1 to save for the fog, and still have 1 mana left for shenanigans.

It's expensive, and if you just tutor up one card, that makes it worse than Diabolic Tutor. Probably has a secure home in Commander though, where you can just pick up all your combo pieces and go to town.

EDH all the way.

Very nice with the new Liliana if you get off her ultimate.

Wasn't sold on this card, then saw a couple of times in limited, holy GOD this card has potential. Favourite combination I've seen it tutor up was a Stuffy Doll + Phylactery Lich - three games in a row. And yeah, this thing is nuts in EDH, one step below (the now sadly banned) Griselbrand in terms of feeding sick combos

Interesting, because in most cases you only need ONE card from your deck to handle a situation (Damnation, Engineered Explosives), so the when you need multiple key cards is when you want to set up a lock or a executing a combo.

However, if your deck is build to create such lock/combo you would have other cheaper ways to give you access to them already, like multiple copies of the key cards, tutors, early draws, etc, instead of wanting a X3BB card to give you that benefit.

But above case is about a regular 60 cards deck. Diabolic Revelation is going to be great fun in EDH.

Breaks my deck wide open. I usually run 250 or so cards, so things like this (Conflux is a great example) I love. ^_^

In any old EDH deck, this card will be merely good in the late game. In tuned decks, this card should win the game the turn it is cast or the next.

It's sort of a semi-replacement for Increasing Ambition.

I'm a big fan of mana-ramping decks. Let me tell you, this thing can be insane when you're able to REALLY pour mana into it. Ah, green, you make ALL the crazy spells in the other colours awesome.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
