This + Tezzeret's Gambit. Or any draw-3, of which there are many better choices in the game. But proliferating for that last token is just so much more fun :)

Cycling, Cantrips, etc.

I.E. use the cycling lands and some combat cantrips that you'd normally use, instead of the free cards (or just to finish this thing) you put the counters on it and BAM, mass card advantage. Roughly 4 mana to draw a net 4.

Consider using Rings of Brighthearth to double the payoff. That is, if you have some way to keep 14+ cards in your hand.

This old school card remains white's best source of card draw. Obvious pairings include blue draw spells, like Brainstorm. But it also pairs beautifully with green: this and Sylvan Library ftw.

This is the bluest card I've ever seen.

The best 'enchantment draw' card available and has not been reprinted :(

Use in your blue/white control or even casual white decks for an instant refill of your hand

Can also be used to counter decking due to forced drawing.

@leomistico: I believe it is because it's Pursuit of Knowledge, and not, for instance, Inspiration. The pursuit of knowledge, in this instance, is performed through diligent study, and not through inherent genius or individual Pondering. This card represents dredging through books, which is hard work fueled by diligence, a very white concept if I may say so myself. In other words, this card is a representation of the total opposite of a brilliant but lazy genius, of which there are a lot of in blue.

good with mixed white and blue

This doesn't seem out of flavour for white, to me.
