The picture on this card reminds me of Bob Marley for some reason....

This: guaranteed to pull a card from their hand, but only a card in their hand.

thought hemorrhage: can hit any card in the deck, and bolts the opponent for each card it finds in hand.

honestly, I like this, but the hemorrhage works better when you know what they're playing and that's why it functions better in the SB. the lobotomy.. eh. I don't know. lobotomy functions better main deck in a deck built for it.

4/5 stars for the reason Brian Seldon splashed blue in his championship deck back in this block. Absolutely amazing card (although newer cards like Thought Hemorrhage are slightly better). Completely destroys combo decks. Great sideboard tech against them...and even good as a mainboard card. A defining staple of blue-black control.

This is in some ways better than Thought Hemorrhage. Although it can't always eliminate cards from the deck, it always takes something out of the opponent's hand.

i would rate this the same as thought Hemorrhage,

in fact i have both in a deck and they go pretty well together

Not strictly better than Though Hemorrhage. They both work differently. Thought Hemorrhage is part burn spell, like a blightning on steroids, and at the expense of having to name the card before you go hunting, always removes cards from the zones that matter. This however works more like Duress, in that you only get to kill the cards you see in their hand.

Mono-black in Scars of Mirrodin standard gets a similar toy called Memoricide; at the convenience of only costing black, this new version of thought hemorrhage deals no damage to the player. The Worlds 2010 top 2 was a mirror match of blue black control and both players certainly ran Memoricides.

There are so many cards like this!!! It's impressive they can keep thinking of variants.
