I enjoy the fact that his subtype is just "Wizard". Not even the game knows his race.

5 Card Combo for infinite draw(your library size), and infinite memnites.
This + Intruder Alarm + Prototype Portal + Memnite + March of the Machines.

I'm quite sure there's another combo for this. A better one too. Y u good card?!

Probably the "First planeswalker." A.K.A, he's overpowered as hell.

In my honest opinion, this card is even more necessary in any blue deck than Rhystic study. 3 cards per turn, minimum, from a flip effect at the cost of 6 mana? How could you say no?

What's to stop a person with omnipotence from having omniscience?

But yeah: fun card.

Comboes quite nicely with Thousand-Year Elixir. Actually, it's one of the best creatures to use with the Elixir.

Hes not overpowered at all. He costs 6 cmc so unless your playing with ramp in a blue heavy deck, hes sitting in your hand for a while. His "defensive" ability costs 4. When he hits the board, your opponent either has a nuke and deals with it, or they don't. And if they don't, that obviously means they have no way of dealing with this monster. So his 2nd ability is really just top deck defense. Yeah you could throw a lightning grieve on him, but then if they have a nuke they could nuke him before its attached. Hes the blue equivalent to Force of Nature (speaking in terms of old). Either you had an answer or you lost the game.

The levels of card advantage this guy can create are beyond human comprehension.

I am shocked to see that no one else has mentioned Pemmin's Aura. "1: Draw three cards." is nothing short of mind blowing. Also, in most cases you can just spend Blue to give Arcanis shroud instead of bouncing him for 4 and losing the aura. The exception is, of course, board sweepers, but even if you have to bounce him, you'll have gained so much card advantage that losing a single card isn't going to affect your game a great deal.

@ DarthParallax: I feel so bad for the people who haven't seen that commercial. That was hilarious.

Also, he's got the same body and almost the same mana cost as Teferi. ... and they're both Wizards. Not that they should be used together or anything...

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
