drawing a card gives you a random card from your deck, which is far more useful than taking your opponent's worst card

Where's Unglue?

This card provides the same amount of card advantage over your opponent that Counsel of the Soratami/Divination does, for the same CMC. Now, I guess it is more restrictive - this isn't true if your opponent's hand is empty, and I'm not sure that it's true if you're in a multiplayer game - but it's an interesting way to look at the card.

Counsel and Divination seem to be pretty universally reviled for being bad, but I'd say that 2 cards for 3 is reasonable - they have yet to print something that gets you 2 cards for 2 with no drawback. If card advantage +1 for 3 is fair in blue, then couldn't you say that the card advantage +1 for 3 is actually good in black?

Putting aside my understanding (or misunderstanding) of the concept of card advantage, as I've mentioned on Mind Ravel, there are precious few cantrip effects on discard spells. Brainbite upgrade... (see all)

2 extra mana and a slow-down to Sorcery-speed, to add "draw a card" to the discard effect of Funeral Charm/Piracy Charm?

Some people are missing the fact that.. on turn 3, in a 1v1. This is ALMOST like saying, pay 3 mana, draw 2.

That being said, it's not an AMAZING card 3/5

A black card that lets you draw a card without losing any life. Why is this not rated higher?

You know, Braids giving helpful advice like this seems...backwards.

Outside of dedicated discard decks, a few discard cards can be useful to knock that last card out of your opponent's hand that they were saving for a rainy day. As far as options for that slot go, this is decent. (Sure, Funeral Charm is more versatile and has the instant speed benefit, but it can also potentially be a, heh, dead card. This never will be since it at worst burns a bit of mana, which is preferable to being useless)
