I think this card is very usable in multiplayer, or for many casual games where you use cards like Mirari's Wake, Braid of Fire, Cabal Coffers. As for a Red version of this I think Aladdin's Ring is almost exactly that, sans the 8 cmc.

This card is EDH gold.

With Energy Chamber, Everflowing Chalice and Proliferate, artifact deck can ramp up to use this much more quickly now. It's worth a second look.

This is pretty great for casual or any format where getting 8 mana is not unheard of. Otherwise, it's just too slow for what it does. I'd rather play an invoker, but to each his or her own.

Is anyone else bugged by the fact that there is no "red" tower? Perhaps they had one that did something like Lava Axe for 8, but they thought it was too powerful and they... *sunglasses* axed it.

Getting there is what makes this card nearly unusable. By the time you have 8 mana to use this thing's ability, you will have likely draw anything you need. The only time I ever got this thing's ability off was when I had 4 Vedalken Engineers out. The card is decent, but 8 mana for anything means it's probably not gonna be used in most games.

Well, considering things like Jayemdae Tome, the current asking price for drawing one card is 4. So mathematically, 8 is two cards' worth. But this gives you four. If you look at it from that perspective, this is a screaming deal. You just have to get there first.

They need a red tower. they could call it "Tower of Calamities" and its effect would be that it deals 12 damage to target creature. that would be pretty cool.

yeah and janymede tome isnt really the modern standard for drawing, considering arcanis nearly gets you this, and for way less

As it turns out, the red tower was saved for when WotC returns to Mirrodin, ie: the new Scars of Mirrodin set.
