Love that art though, so brutal looking- pages made of flesh.

Four 4 mana i'd actually like to pick at least any card, not just the worse of the two cards lying on top.

It's better than people give it credit for. It's clearly a multiplayer political card.

Example: You have in your graveyard wrath of god and a land as the top two cards. One opponent has a huge army of creatures. You activate the grimoire, choose the opponent with the fewest creatures in play, and he'll most likely have you exile the land and return the WOG to your hand, which you can then play to kill the army of the other guy.
Then the WOG is back in your graveyard, and if one opponent builds up a huge army again, you can have the other opponent give you the WOG back. And so on and so on.

It's also better than drawing cards from your library, since you know normally what you draw when you activate this, and thus can decide easily if it's worth beeing activated right now. If you pay mana to draw from your library, there is far more luck involved. You can also create some pretty tough choices for your opponent, since you can choose the order of cards hitting your ...

I miss the graveyard order rule. I remember getting a game win against an Unearth draft deck when he pulled them from his graveryard as a separate stack.

Corner cases matter.

One of the few cards that cares about graveyard order.

Actually, I think the game should worry more about the order of the graveyard.

It was probably written by a pope, to describe the security of a Jesuit exodus.
