I like it, nice for a creature heavy deck (especially in casual multiplayer if your play group likes to amass armys) and if you're worried about discarding cards you still want just throw a few copies of library of leng in your deck

3.5-4/5

Started playing this card in my {G}{B} EDH/Commander deck, where it works fantastically. The format generally allows for much longer and more drawn out matches, so being able to refill your hand every other turn (or every turn) for only 4 mana, is excellent.

I know that I've gotten decent use out of Jayemdae Tome before, and with a touch of creativity this blows it out of the water. A Lorwyn black/ red goblin deck or a zombie deck or any deck that is going to reliably have more than two creatures out and needs cards in the graveyard could get great use out of this card.

No one has mentioned madness, threshold, flashback or dredge. Odd.

@combobuilder
Library of Leng wouldn't help here since the discard is part of the cost and the Library only kicks in when the effect itself causes the discard.

That being said, there are plenty of instances in casual and EDH where you'd have 4 mana to spare and no hand, so this is still a great way to refill.

In the block it was designed for, it read: Discard your hand, draw that many cards. In Onslaught, it was all creatures, all the time.

It still wasn't a good card, but it at least made sense in its block.

Seems underrated on here. You don't need some fancy combo machine to make use of it. Any aggro deck will probably be running very low on cards by the time this rolls out (and also might curve nicely up to it). No graveyard shenanigans or dredge or madness needed to gain massive card advantage.

goliath_cobalt. I think he was referring to having more than 7 cards after activating it, hence the potential usefulness of Library of Leng.
