Apparently natural selection shall result in an eagle tiger, i shall call you a teagle.

It probably wasn't reprinted because it is out of flavor.

I wonder: what the heck kind of creature is that? Weirdest griffin anyone's ever seen?

I wonder why this card was only printed in Alpha, Beta and Unlimited.
Other cards that only exist in these editions are the Power Nine and similar broken cards.
This one is far far from broken, yet still interesting actually.

Portent and Ponder are both sorceries. Since this is an instant you can use it to kill Sensei's Divining Top. Note also that both this and ponder are restricted to either your library or your opponent's, whereas portent can look at either.

See Mirri's Guile for more green deck-peeking shenanigans.

@KrosanGardener: Good question about this creature. It would be interesting to know what art de***ion Mark Poole had to work with on this guy (if any).

This creature looks like a combination of an eagle, a tiger, and a human; those are three apex predators, and that'd be a fearsome creature indeed. Not hard to imagine something like that dominating its surroundings!

Sensei's Divining Top until end of turn.
If you are playing this card, you'd better care about the top card of your library. A lot. Like, Lurking Predators, Oracle of Mul-Daya, the whole shebang.

Ponder can only look at the casters library, whereas this and Portent can look into any library.

Am I the only one who thinks that this and Drop of Honey has their names and pictures reversed.

This art is an outrage. An ugly, godless tiger-hawk hybird pulling a rope and holding a giant apple. Poole even bothered to dram him t i t s. * sigh *
Otherwise the card is okay, it allows you to pre-empt and ordain some of what your opponent will throw at you. 3/5.

Ponders long lost granddad

He seems to be lacking in the "natural selection" idea. If you think of it that way anyway.
Interesting card.
