For those new to the game- Play this at the end of your opponent's turn

Howling Mine with flash!

Being able to leave up counter mana until you've got control of the game and can get more utility out of this than your opponent makes this card fairly compelling. I'm willing to accept a lot of drawbacks to draw an extra card a turn.

But then the mana cost and effect remind me of Phyrexian Arena and I'd much rather pay life than my opponent extra draws for this.

Still a fun card. Excited to play with it!

Flash allows you to benefit off this first, and also allows for you to keep up a counter spell if necessary. Can't wait to follow this up with a Notion Theif.

Dat flavor text tho.

If this was worded slightly differently, players would flash each other at the beginning of their upkeep. And draw a card.

Tournaments would be... awkward.

I wanted another Howling Mine effect already for my Nin, the Pain Artist Owling Mine deck; that this has flash, so that it lessens some of the downside of the deck's need to give my opponents cards as well, similar to how predecessors Temple Bell and Otherworld Atlas worked, is just upside. Now that I think about it, Howling Mine is barely holding a place in its namesake deck archetype because it will likely always have a lower CMC slot. Also, interestingly enough, the purple parts of the Nyx starfield match the color scheme of Nin very well.

In standard with Notion Thief, Whispering Madness, and Fate Unraveler? and then when M15 comes out, Waste Not. Geez just make Nekusar Standard legal at that point!

Would be nice if it had the subtype -curse- since Kruphix calls it one.

I played this card in the pre–release alongside Triton Cavalry. It was so much fun casting the Dictate at the end of their turn, getting the extra card, then hitting the horses with a one–mana spell and sending the Dictate back to my hand so my opponent didn’t get an extra card. Hah!

I'm so happy Kruphix has become the God of Commander in the Theros block. I think BlueGreen is one of the nicest colour combinations in EDH.

In this block, Kruphix-specific things they've given us include Prophet of Kruphix, Courser of Kruphix, and obviously, Kruphix itself. In BlueGreen, we have Kiora's Follower, Kiora, the Crashing Wave, and even Horizon Chimera.

Sometimes, Wizards makes mistakes. But then there's the times when they get everything right.

Rock on.
