A key card for the combo deck that has Dream Halls in it. Use this to get Dream Halls onto the battlefield and start pitching cards to cast spells.

*waits until opponent is tapped out*

"I'd like you to meet... Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur!!!
And you?
Oh... cool Mountain, dude. Did your mom make that for you?"

Like a mini-Eureka, minus the Planeswalkers.

This is a *very* powerful card if your opponent isn't holding anything,
and if you're playing Blue, that shouldn't be a huge challenge.

I'm somewhat amazed this isn't restricted or banned yet.

Love the card... fun, fun, fun! You're always going to put something worse in play, whether it be Progenitis, Serra Avatar, or Akroma, Angel of Wrath

It's all fun and games until the guy grows up to induce despair.

Cute Eldrazi. I think my Battle of Wits is better though.

Just another example of the brokenness of the entire Urza Block.

Tommy's excitement to show his class the mystical curio of the orient that he borrowed from his uncle was quickly crushed when he saw among the other children's offerings a powerful demon, a demonstration of godlike abilities, the very Soul of the World, and a gigantic gravity-defying, plane-destroying titan from the Blind Eternities. Embarrassed at having brought something so paltry in comparison, he feigned ill went home early.

He was the lucky one, for show and tell that day had no survivors.

This is an 'even' card, and unlike Wrath of God, it's actually difficult to build your deck or play your game to REALLY take away the 'drawback'- unless you simply cast it faster and your opponent is playing a 'normal' deck with a much lower curve- which is how MOST decks you play against will be built, and is how it gets its wins MOST of the time...but even then, at any moment, if they have a single card in their hand, they might be able to equalize with you. And nobody expects the Mad Johnny Inquisition!

Sideboarding your own Progenitus, Griselbrand, or Emrakul and a Demonic Tutor in a non-Show and Tell deck feels like a fun way to beat Show and Tell in a pinch, and in the mirror game, I can imagine it must be VERY difficult and scary trying to figure out when to play Show. (Fetch the Big Monster asap, so when they cast SaT, you get yours too)

The way I like to make Sideboards, since I will never be fooled into thinking I'm a Pro, is this-- "What decks do I want to beat?" "What is ... (see all)
