Hanna said, "He has your eyes"
Karn said, "Yes he does dear" but in his mind he said, "WTF is she talking about?"

You can see it, Karn has a good poker face

If joking on comments ain't joe style, perhaps some interesting observation?
See that shield? Looks like a Steel Golem to me, but it is really a Touchstone

I love this flavor text.

Jayemdae Tome in enchantment form. I used to like it, but very expensive... However, if you keep some mana open to counter spell and the opponents don't play anything worth a counter, you know how to spend those 4 mana avaible at the end of their turn... Only useful in a counter-deck, I think, or some casual deck! However if everything goes as planned, it may be great!


@Deepfried-Owls: This is not a creature, so Training Grounds doesn't work. With Opalescence, however...

At least its more playable than Archivus.

This card was never quite playable. I wanted it to be. But after I payed 8 to draw my first card... 12 for the second... Would making it a cantrip help?

Back in the good ole days...

Definitely works slightly better with the generic Training Grounds. 2 blue is better than 2 uncolored and 2 blue.

Love this! Can be used as many time as you want and a great way to empty your lands when you have no hand late game. 4.5/5, a bit expensive.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
