Heh. 5/5 why? Because this card makes Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind smile :)

This is just about as awesome as Inner Fire in my UR draw deck. With Consecrated Sphinx or Thought Reflection on board I generally have a bunch of cards in hand. Just copy this a couple times with Reverberate, Twincast, Increasing Vengeance, Fork, Snapcaster Mage and you're golden.

Better than you think in the right deck, in the right format.

"Why is this rated so low? Angel's Grace + Ad Nauseam + this card = win."


Except that it costs 6BBWR

Sure, if you can pull off the whole combo without getting countered, but you'd need some pretty amazing way to cheat it all out, otherwise the combo is unplayable.

Regardless, there are other, far more viable ways to fill up your hand. However, it still require too much mana to execute all in the same turn, and you aren't likely going to get more than 4-5 damage off with this.

I give this 5 out of 5. Why? OTK combo backup. I hanve this blue deck that splashes a bit of red, and this is the perfect backup. Not like my opponents ever survive my combo once I get it going though... I'll post a deck list if I ever get it typed.

Ew I never got why they felt this theme was worth running with.

Angel's Grace, Ad Nauseam and Spiraling Embers seems easy enough to get off. While we are already dealing with 6BBWR, may as well add a Quicken! Just Cast Spiraling Embers, in response Quicken, drop Ad Nauseam, and in response to that Angel's Grace! Angel's Grace goes off, you can't die, Ad Nauseam goes off, you have your library in your hand, Spiraling Embers goes off, you win!

Haha, this is the card i was looking for! Nice synergy with Psychosis Crawler, throw in some Plagiarize, a Spellbook, Consecrated Sphinx and some other stuff and you got yourself a Deck :)

I once did 58 damage with this and Uyo, Silent Prophet.

The guy was mana-screwed and basically waiting for me to kill him. I know it's never happening again.

Vexing Shusher. Counterspell problem solved.

Obviously works best in a deck that draws a lot of cards, and blue has that in spades. So you'll probably have your OWN counterspells to counter theirs. Draw a gigantic hand, Vexing shusher this thing, then blow your opponent up. I have a mono-red deck that plays 4 Font of Mythos. My opponents usually laugh when I drop them. "Cool, I'll draw into what I need to finish you off quickly. Thanks!" Then I drop a couple of these and the game's over.

Sure, it's a casual deck. I'm sure it wouldn't hold up in a legacy tourney at all, but it's still fun to play in my circle. Usually after I've dropped the Shusher and one or two fonts, my opponents usually say, "GG, switch decks!"
