@Vini: Well... there COULD be a situation where you wanted to delay your draw. Don't know what, but there COULD be.

well, if you wanted it for mana fixing, and had an already full hand, it would be nice, as the card you draw wouldnt push you up to 8 cards to make you discard that turn

The original Chromatic Sphere. Barbed Sextant was and still is such a good card. It always fixed my mana back in the day, and drawing a card to boot. Great card. Good artwork too!

There are times when you want to delay your draw. I've used these in a deck that also used Apocalypses.

Yes! Because when I think of ways to improve something I put up to my eye, I think barbs!

Strictly worse than Chromatic Sphere.

Generally worse than Chromatic Sphere and Chromatic Star in terms of Eggs deck applications.

Eggs revolves around a recursion loop starring Second Sunrise, Pyrite Spellbomb, Conjurer's Bauble, Lotus Bloom, Ghost Quarter, some Islands, and a fat wad of cantrip spells to empty your library, generate infinite mana, and crack the Pyrite Spellbomb 10 times to deal 20 straight to the opponent on turn 3 or 4. The quick cantrip offered by sacrificing Chromatic Spheres and Chromatic Stars can burn through your library very efficiently, and it just adds up each time you resolve Second Sunrise. Second Sunrise is quickly and efficiently recurred with spells like Reclaim and Noxious Revival. Once your library is empty, Conjurer's Bauble becomes a repetitive Regrowth for {1}.
