I like how most of the guilds on Ravnica are concerned with power struggles and politics, whereas the Izzet were doing stuff like this to themselves just for the hell of it.

This is an odd one. Not the greatest, but there's potential for this card. It's like arachibutyrophobia said, your deck must be designed for this card to fit in, but if it is, it will work very well.

Some cards I think would make the deck work are:

Spiteful visions
underworld dreams
sign in blood

forced fruition
kederekt parasite
reckless scholar

and of course, twincast would help this out quite a bit.
Imagine casting this one time after a forced fruition caused your opponent to draw seven cards, then casting it again with a twincast.

Please draw 9 cards, then take 9 damage, then draw 2 more cards, then take 11 more damage.

This card works very well for me. I play it in two separate U/R decks, and both make excellent use of it. Either use it at the end of your opponents turn for 2 cards two damage, or twincast it on your opponent for an 8 damage finisher for 5 mana, pyromancer ascension a lot of great ways to use this card. Any U/R deck that I play would almost definitely have this card, especially since I almost always bring twinscast

I agree, at first glance this card is horrible. "Drawing two cards, and have them take two damage (three tops)? That sucks!" But as the combos stated above, it IS quite lethal. The most they would take is like 10 (because of Forced Fruition ad the their draw step. And I agree, put this combo on a Grixis deck and have fun!

Howling mine wouldn't hurt either.

AWESOME with forced fruition.

Ok, you take 17 damage...and get milled =) you lose twice to the same spell

Works with opponent's Brainstorm/Jace also. If you can cast a few copies in one turn, the damage greatly magnified.

Brainstorm/Jace + turn draw + 1st Vortex = 6 damage. 2nd one 8 damage.

Off-color Sign in Blood if you cast on your opponent's turn.
