This card redefines "Thousand Island Dressing".

Somewhere in the world, a young boy is on his way to get 100 Islands.

This reprint made me laugh so hard when I first saw it.

Badass art, no question about that.

The main reason I like this card is that it sets up a BADASS meter.

Oh, you can be all efficient and win with this here enchantment with a near-200 card deck. But why stop there?

Win with a 400 card deck. Go on. For every 100 cards, there is one Battle of Wits. Do it. You'll be a badass. Happy digging :D

Play this in a regular sized deck with Spawnsire of Ulamog and grab 200 Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. The Legend rule will cause all 200 to go into your library, and if you haven't found Battle of Wits yet you now have 200 spare turns.

I for one like this card! I liked it more when it came out the first time... don't really want anymore now that I have 4 in a deck already!

Also, this happens to be surprisingly good in the deck I built around it... Not AMAZING but I have won turn 4 several times and averages about a turn 6-7 win (assuming it's not destroyed). Uses a ton of searchers including lots of transmute cards. Lots of fun :)

I'm tempted to just throw it in a normal, 60 card blue deck. Just because.

There is no card in MtG that I love more than Battle of Wits right now. None. This card so embodies the spirit of MtG to me that I smile whenever I see it.

4.5/5 for sheer hilariousness and gorgeous art

I want one of these, but I hope I'm not pulling it during the prerelease or drafts.

Finally, a happy reprinting! (This and Akroma's Memorial...)

I LOVE putting this in my deck. I've used it all of... 2? times, but it's fun to have anyway.
I'm a gimmick-player, so I don't stupidly focus on winning with it. I usually run a 250+ card deck (and because of how my collection is, it's mostly singleton), and only have one copy of this. So I figure that if I can happen to draw it and play it, that's just fine. Heck, the first time I used it, it just got countered anyway.

That other comment though... how could this possibly work into Commander/EDH? Isn't that limited to EXACTLY 100 cards, a bit short of the 207-card minimum needed to use this? (if on turn one)

I use this as a legitimate wincon in my Phelddagrif EDH deck with Spawnsire of Ulamog. Just get Spawnsire off, grab all my common Eldrazis (I keep them set aside just for the occasion, I have 167, I think) and drop Terminus. I also run Leyline of Anticipation to allow me to do this all just before my turn.
I've never pulled the combo off, and most of my friends don't even know it's in the deck, or about all those Eldrazi I keep set aside. Some day I'll do it. Some day the hilarious Group Hug deck will suddenly combo win out of nowhere with Battle of Wits.
