"Exile the top card of your library. Exile the top card of your library. Exile the top card of your library."

(assuming i'm doing this right...)

with an infinite library composed of 3:1 spells:land, this should repeat on average 1+(3/1) = 4 times, for 12 cards, 3/4 of which should be nonland, for an expected 9 tokens.

with an infinite library composed of 2:1 spells:land, this should repeat on average 1+(2/1) = 3 times, for 9 cards, 2/3 of which should be nonland, for an expected 6 tokens.

with an infinite library composed of 3:2 spells:land, this should repeat on average 1+(3/2) = 2.5 times, for 7.5 cards, 3/5 of which should be nonland, for an expected 4.5 tokens.

with an infinite library composed of 1:1 spells:land, this should repeat on average 1+(1/1) = 2 times, for 6 cards, 1/2 of which should be nonland, for an expected 3 tokens.

in general, (expected) tokens (with an infinite library) = 3 * % spells / % lands
of course, real libraries aren't infinite, so the risk of decking yourself starts to become very real...

So in short it reads:
"Remove a good chunk of your library from the game, and put a bunch of 1/1 tokens into play."

I personally think that six mana is too much. Many cards with roughl that cmc create a ton of tokens as well (like One dozen eyes), without the randomness. If the tokens would have haste or this card would be an instant, then maybe... but like this? Unless you have a deck that cares a lot for warriors (like a Lovisa Coldeyes deck), I'd not play this.

@shikadi: You'd deck yourself. The card's ability would continually cause you to remove the top three cards of your library from the game. Once you remove the last card, and attempt to remove another, you'd lose.

I actually did something silly with this in a R/G/W deck. I ran all plains, and a Dryad Arbor. I cast Worldly Tutor fetching the Arbor and putting it into play. I then cast Hallowed burial, putting said Arbor onto the bottom of my library. Then I cast Endless Horizons, removing all of my lands from my library, leaving the Arbor on the bottom, then using a Boros Signet, I cast Fervor. Next turn I cast this, dropping 41 1/1s with haste.

Stupid hard to pull off? Definitely. Funny as hell? Definitely. Would I even ATTEMPT it in a serious game? HELL no. The only reason I did this was because someone said it couldn't be done. I've since dismantled the deck, now that I finally got t... (see all)
