Flavor text feels very much like the card Greed to me.

Speaking of which, i'm going to go pay 2 life and 3 less mana to draw a card...

Wow. Eight mana for one card. Twelve for two. This really needs some infinite mana combo to work.

Considering how many other Card Draw options blue has this one is just not all that impressive, upside is it can be used as long as you can find an extra 4 Mana, downside is it takes 4 Mana to use.

Azure Mage is better by virtue of being able to swing, being more splashable, and plus, you can bust it with Training Grounds.

At least it's better than Scepter of Insight. Man, that card sucks!

Why is this rated so low? There are any number of times, especially in casual play, when mind-late game you're dying to draw something other than land. Sure it's not Ancestral Recall or Skullclamp, but there are a lot of circumstances where it'll give you enough card advantage to put you over the top. Solid 3/5, IMO.

its like a blue version of jayemdae tome, except it doesn't tap. great in EDH, use it with green acceleration for muchos card draw

if they could lower the casting cost to U or the activation cost to uu it may be playable.

I suck at building decks, so I have never begged my topdeck to NOT be a land. :p

Maybe this is because I love multicolor decks, but have nowhere near the lands to support them. :/

5/5 for Emma Goldman quote.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
