Even if the effect ends before you get the card you want, it's still that much closer to that card, and you remove all the obstacles that's not useful for current situation. Good card, but will take decision to use.

It's kind of nice along with something like Field of Dreams or Future Sight. You may not get what you want, but at least you won't get the shaft.

Plus, it's fairly reliable in Highlander formats, especially in a deck with a large amount of nonbasics.

Since it doesn't count as drawing, you can use this after Shared Fate and drain your library...much to your opponent's dismay.

I love this card! Of course it fizzles sometimes, but while doing that it removes a lot of cards I don't want to draw anyway. It's not restricted either.

Love it on my EDH. Combined with sensei's divining top and things like diabolic vision or spy network, it rules :)

Too bad the effect will end sooner rather than later if you try to keep going on, since you'll most likely end up with two lands of the same name.

Hmm. Now to build a commander deck with only one Swamp, just so I can have another copy of Demonic Tutor.

have to be played with a lot of non basic lands... Probably a lot of two color producing even if you are running mono black just to reduce the chance of being stuck with two swamps. Solid card anyway.

Laboratory Maniac. Run a deck of 1 ofs (might be a bit hard with lands).
