Use with Jace's erasure to control what your opponent draws. If their top card isn't a threat, use the erasure's effect on yourself when you draw, allowing you to see your next card and decide whether to keep it or mill it.

@Forgeling: Yep. Artifacts are people, kinda like Soylent Green.

As far as my searching and knowledge reveals, this is one of only two non-unset cards that causes all players to play with the top card of their library revealed. The other, Field of Dreams, is mostly obsolete in comparison to this.

Works fantastically with the clash mechanic, but can also be utilized with cards like Djinn of Wishes and Summoning Trap for you, or Cerebral Eruption and Telemin Performance against your opponent.

Psychic Battle also seems like a good idea.

Mindshrieker is another good option.

Wotc had a lot of insight in printing this card, like they new clash was comin up.
Use with things that interact with topdeck, of course.

Really liked this card ever since it came out. Although it can be destroyed easier by red and black, you can get it easier than Field of Dreams since it's a 1cc artifact (via Trinket Mage for instance)

The second ability is merely an expedient since it will end the insight and isn't reliable to give better results,
but it's for free and that's also what gives this card a use by itself without building around it.

@KikiJikiTiki: Don't forget about the lame and obvious choice for the second ability, Cosi's Trickster ;)
It would at least be useful if you draw a second lantern.

Wow! This should go into almost any mill deck. Either starve your opponent of lands or (A bit harder) make sure that's the only thing they get.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
