Convince someone to play for ante, then play a BU deck with a few of these and future sight. Win or lose, you can snag all the ante cards and swap them for basic land.

This card feels like it should be silver-bordered. If it weren't banned in every format ever, I guess you could bring four of them to a tournament just to get your deck down to 56.

I guess, if you're trying to get rid of excess swamps.

Swapping the stuff on top of you're library seems extremely blue to me.

...How is this unique and nonexistent-in-the-modern-game effect "a blue ability"?

The mind boggles.

Very powerful. Highly random. Almost unplayable (who plays for ante?). Out of color (blue ability). Low cost.

Yeah, EDH ante! Way to cause a double loss!

Once I tried playing for ante with my friend. I revealed an Elspeth Tirel, and was tempted to opt out. He insisted, "No dude, come on, just do this!" He then revealed a Mountain. I picked up my cards and left.
