Used to hose Necropotence, works fine with Chains of Mephistopheles, is a *** if that Chains of Mephistopheles is combined with a Megrim and will guarantee you a puch in the face if you play a Nether Void too.

@Kart: You're right! Never thought that it was powerful enough to hose Necropotence in its old wording!

Geth's Grimoire + Words of Waste

I run this in a Library of Leng/Pyromancy/Djinn of Wishes deck.

I believe this is the only card you can play to make your opponent have no max hand size. I'm thinking about working with that and Black Vise and perhaps cards like Arcane Laboratory or Silence to keep their hand full.

works great with madness, not sure if its really good enough to pay 15-20 bucks for a playset though.

I have it in my Nath of the Gilt-Leaf EDH deck. Oh the look on their faces. :D

This is actually a pretty decent card for its time, but for now, it does wonders for casual players all around. This is a pretty good card to throw in a reanimator deck, in which, always helps you out (and additional card power never hurts).

I feel like the oracle text changed the function significantly: Skipping discard means your hand size is effectively unlimited REGARDLESS OF TIMESTAMPS: Rather than actually changing hand size it just removes the rule that makes hand size matter.

Plus it would stop things that happen during the discard phase, if there are any. :/
