This not exactly a Goblin Charbelcher. The converted mana cost aspect is quite different than simple summed nonlands. You have more potential for damage with this card on average, especially if you're stocked with fatties and other costly spells. The beauty of this spell is it's continuity. Yes, all consuming continuity but continuity nonetheless. I would never venture to claim it's strictly better than Goblin Charbelcher but it may be. At the very least this card is more gratifying because you translate not order drawn but mana cost into damage.

If you're going to do something like that (which isn't a bad idea for this guy), use Crystal Ball. More scry, no sac requirement, and not on the 1/1 body that Viscera Seer sports.

MULTIPLE EPIC SPELLS ARE FEASIBLE TO SET OFF. You need two in your hand (two of the same would work); a quicken, vedalken orrery, or leyline of anticipation; and ridiculous amounts of mana production (such as Cloudpost, Glimmerpost, Vesuva and Mycosynth Lattice) or mana reduction (such as the Planeshift familiars or Cloudkey).

Slap down one Epic spell, then before it resolves, quicken, then put another Epic spell on the stack. By the time one resolves, the other one's already been cast, and is not affected by "You can't cast spells". This has been confirmed by a MTG customer support representative via email.

@MacBizzle: Why not just use Maelstrom Nexus in addition to the library-stacking shenanigans you were already going to use with Undying Flames? Oh, five colors, right.

@Aburaishi: Add Endless Swarm in order to power Viscera Seer? As in, Mystical Tutor (or scry) into Undying Flames, then Endless Swarm, cascading into Undying Flames via Maelstrom Nexus. It's so crazy it definitely won't work.

P.S. Somebody please prove me wrong.

Seems good in a dragon deck where you are using activated abilities like from Flameblast Dragon. See also Noxious Revival.

You could use Viscera Seer to attempt to scry your way to the best cards (though you'd probably want a token engine in that case, seeing as how you can't play any more creatures).

Never heard of Epic cards before but one thing's for sure: they are EPIC.
