One of Magic's more memorable flavor texts; it's up there with Lhurgoyf.

Agreed. this is one of the best flavor texts of all time.

If you like this flavor text, read that of Clambassadors And... censorship kills another otherwise good link.

Many older enchantments like Kismet, Lifetap or Soul Barrier, which were not designed with multiplayer environments in mind, were upgraded to comprise all your opponents. This is not true for certain artifacts which would probably be too strong with such an errata (The Rack and Black Vise come to mind), other artifacts like Fellwar Stone got a similar errata or rather a clarification in their rules text.

I understand why this is in {W}{B} but this would just be so darn good in {G}.

The card says target opponent but the oracle says an opponent, did this card get upgraded or is a misprint?

The flavor text can be argued to be a bit in collision with the mechanic as library is the player's "memory" from where they dig up spells.

But the card, without these very minor things, is great and the flavor is better than in most cards.

Once again the Oracle text doesn't do what the card did(1). To be succesfully cast meant that the speel wasn't countered , so the oracled text should be something like this:



Whenever a spell that an opponent casted resolves with you or a creature you control as a target, you may draw a card.

So it should trigger when the spell resolves, not when it is cast.

(1) In excess of the 'a target opponent' vs. 'an opponent'.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
