The fun starts when you and an opponent each have one of these in play.

Pretty outclassed now with Consecrated Sphinx, but this one still has its uses - namely the splashability. And splashable card advantage is a beautiful thing.

This thing is a beast of a card-advantage generator. One of my favorite investments in a big game :)

Of course it's useful in EDH, EDH is supposed to be played in multiplayer. ;)

That aside, it's still an amazing card.

An excellent card-drawing machine in multiplayer. It doesn't draw too much attention to you on its own, either.

Yeah... Consecrated Sphinx craps these out...

This can definitely help you out in multiplayer, you guys are right. I use this in my multiplayer deck, it's BlackGreen and it utilizes basically four necrotic oozes and four birds of paradise and then a bunch of other stuff with tap abilities. It works really good.

@EvilLCleavage: Why Necrotic Ooze? You know that it doesn't work with this, right? Or are you just telling us about your Ooze deck that happens to use this card?

The Necrotic Oozes would be able to tap for mana with the Birds of Paradise in your graveyard, which would let you draw even more cards.
