x4 Maindeck if you lack first turn spells. Sideboard them out after game 1, and you'll know exactly what to put in and remove.

ClowWizardEriol: "Potentially" being the key word. Extirpate is a worthless first turn play, Extract isn't (in any game but the first.) Blue needs that mana open later in the game to be reactionary.

Great thing about this card is that when you cast it you don't have to name a specific card, so you can thumb through your opponent's deck to see what he has and remove what you don't like.

I use this card with my Grindstone and Painter's Servant combo for Legacy tournaments. If my opponent sideboards in Gaea's Blessing or one of the Eldrazi titans to fizzle my combo I just take the card out and combo off. So good!!!

getting to see what is in your opponent's deck tends to be far more useful than taking one card out most of the time.

Rip that stupid singleton Sword of ~~ out of your opponent's caw-blade deck and watch them cry ;)

Kweane, you're searching the opponent's library for them, so I don't believe it triggers Archive Trap.

this does not work with archive trap, unless you are talking about just for milling

you are searching someone elses library with extract, the wording on archive trap reads:
"If an opponent searched his or her library this turn"

meaning they have to search their own library, not have someone do it for them

seriously, someone looks at this card and says, your only trading one card for one card its not that great, its trading one card, and one mana, for one card, any card in their deck, and knowledge of their entire deck. that is worth an incredible amount for just one mana
