@blizzard Actually, if you look at it logically, it's not. And seriously, this isn't youtube. No one cares about who comments first.

This could also be templated as: Train of Thought, XX1U, Sorcery, Draw X cards. I think when you look at it like that it suddenly becomes a lot better since it can now be thought of as an expensive, but common, variant of Braingeyser or Mind Spring. It still hasn't found a home in Pauper and at this rate I doubt it ever will. Still.. not a bad card, really.

I think this would've been more interesting with a mana cost of U (same replicate cost).

It still barely avoids being strictly better than Divination that way, while still making the effect strong enough to be desirable in the right spot. As is, pretty terrible except MAYBE limited.

This would be great as an instant. Right now, it is worse than divination and opportunity, which are also both difficult to justify putting in a deck, but altogether more playable than this. If you have the mana to put into this, might as well be playing stroke of genius or blue sun's zenith

too expensive for card draw but it's multiple card draw at common.

Can actually be alright in the late-game of Control matchups, since your opponent would have to counter all the instances of this instead of just hitting your one Blue Sun's Zenith. That's a very marginal advantage, though.

I think this card has its upsides and downsides. Upside is the fact that you can replicate as much as you can afford to, and so get as much card advantage as you can OR you can spend just a bit of mana for a card. Downside, is that if you are using other instant speed card draw, they are usually more efficient. Blue Sun's Zenith requires 4 mana for 1 card, which is awful in comparison, but recycles itself, and for 6 mana you get three cards, while recycling. 7 mana makes it much better than Opportunity since Blue Sun's recycles, and I just never liked Oppurtunity(I think it's too high cost to be an instant, even if it is really good card advantage).
