I like this card a lot more than Helvault. Exile cards until you can afford it and you might get really cool stuff! And it's an amazingly fun casual multiplayer card.

It appears I've found another card for that Chaos deck I'll someday get around to building...

Now of course, this is a set with Scry out the ears, so considering you're the one controlling the activation of its effects, you can totally abuse this thing. 7 mana is steep, but bear in mind that you're going to have a decent idea of what your top card IS most of the time, or at least what it isn't in the case of Scry 1.

Hey, look, it's the Helvault of the set...

A nice play on Pandora's Box, and it seems there actually is a Modern deck into which this fits right in, but still, this is a clear jank dollar-bin rare...

Well this looks fun. Would be funny if it let the spells be cast free too. All kinds of stuff popping off.

This right here might make for some super-fun casual games.

The Greek word "Pyxis" means "box." As in Pandora's box.

I can relate to Pandora. I too was blessed (or some could say cursed) with Wonder.

Due to this curiosity, I ripped this card apart. I was surprised that evil incarnations did not come out. If that isn't a missed flavor opportunity, I don't know what is.

I really want to make a Standard deck with this and bring it to FNM. With tons and tons of scry, you can see what you put in most of the time, and fill Pandora's Box with juicy permanents.

You can tap the Pyxis on your upkeep after Thassa's daily scry.

There are some sick things you can do with devotion ETB triggers: with just three Gray Merchants in the Pyxis, I'm pretty sure you would drain your opponents for 18.

I actually used this in a Draft deck with Akroan Horse, a couple Evangels of Heliod, and Purphoros, God of the Forge. I even broke it open once with Purphoros on the field, but I didn't scry very much so it was a shot in the dark. I only had three creatures inside, and no Evangels. My opponent doesn't know how lucky he was.

The only think I wish is that the last ability had "any player may activate this ability". How much fun would that be, hm? They could even have reduced the activation cost to make up for it, which would make it more viable in regular settings.
