The concept of a 'normal' game flies out the window whenever this thing hits the table.

throw a Spellshift on the eye by countering your own spell. you may then reveal until you reveal an intant/sorcery card that you may then pay without paying.. it gets under the EotS which makes you can use your other spell and counter it again with spellshift :)

this way you can play all instants and sorceries from your deck and when you put the Research//Development card in, also from your Sideboard. love this card :D:D:D:D:D

I truly love this card. I have built several (multiplayer) decks with this, all so annoying that nobody wanted to play against it:D so now they are all taken apart.
The decks I built:
-enchantment mayhem with cards like topsy turvy, confusion in the ranks, burning cinder fury of crimson chaos fire (I love silverbordered:D) and additional cards like thieves' auction, warp world
-an EDH deck with al kind of cute combat tricks that would be really devastating if I am able to play them over and over again (with intet, the dreamer as my general they were generally free too). And it even won once! (there was a huge stack, with 4 players playing draw spells. Everybody gave up, probably because they thought it would last forever. It probably was, with draw spells, untap land/gain mana spells, and token producers. And a twincast.)
-a regular boring mill deck that was... (see all)

This could have easily been an Izzet card.

Shahrazad, Knowledge Pool, and Hive Mind in combo with this. you'll spend the next 10 years playing magic, and never buy a single new card.

This card is almost as much of a rules nightmare as Confusion in the Ranks, but it is full of Johnny fun! If you like playing with modified theme decks, put a couple copies of this in the Izzet Guild deck, and watch it become much more entertaining.

Fun combos:

* Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir - basically no opponents can play instants & sorceries while the two are out.
* (Broken with M10 :( ): Cunning Wish & Burning Wish - use these to take a card that has been removed by Eye of the Storm & put it back in your hand. Since you are only playing a copy of Wish spell, you can keep doing this (and constantly have an instant/sorcery in your hand) as the copy of the spell is what you end out playing.
* Gather Specimens - By itself, this card is just okay. With Eye of the Storm & the above 2 cards, you now have a lock-down on sorceries, instants, and creatures.
* Split Cards - You can use either half of a split... (see all)

Casting the copies = triggers Pyromancer Ascension's twincast ability = 12 damage lightning bolts with one Pyro active.

The art and the shape of the expansion symbol always make me think this is from Saviors at first glance. It even looks like an epic spell. Feels a little like one too.

When I saw this, I first thought of Time Stretch.

Raise your hand if you like playing solitaire!
