A very nice sideboard against anyone that so desperately wants to play Jace, Memory Adept. TRUMP.

Maua: Both objects check for an owner separately. So the Elixir is shuffled into its owner's library (your opponent's), and your graveyard is shuffled into its owner's library (yours).

This card almost put me to sleep until I got to that last bit. Then it got me pondering... The artifacts are awesome in this core set.

Well... Looks like I picket the wronge time to play a mill deck.. hopefuly my friends won't find this card.

@Mauaka: Geth's controller would shuffle the elixir into his/her opponent's library and then shuffle his/her own graveyard into his/her own library. Both libraries would get shuffled.

EDIT / addendum -- this card ROCKS for Mono-Black Control. Why? Phyrexian Arena, Smallpox, Pox, Dark Tutelage, Dark Confidant

This is a staple in pretty much all of my control decks lately. It does two things that slow decks like: lifegain, which admittedly by itself does not do much, but can be good for stalling and lets you take an extra turn of damage with a little more flexibility, and more importantly it lets you put back all of those control cards that you've already played. Already used most of your counters or bouncers? Well no worries! It's not flashy but that extra support can help you win games.

@konokono: Feldon's Cane and Pull from Eternity are kind of unhappy that you forgot to mention them.

That said, this card is really awesome, especially for control decks. Restock on counters and draw spells while keeping the aggro players from killing you? That's really worth something.

Reprinted just in time to ruin all that sweet milling they're setting up Innistrad for.

This quote makes me think Innistrad is Homelands Part Deux.

Never bothered to get a hold of one of these from M11, am dying to see how it will play. Part of me feels like shuffling your graveyard back in, except in the latter part of a long game (or against mill) is generally a bad thing. I've learned that deck thinning, i.e. being able to get to the cards you really need faster (or just your power plays) is key.

Where I think this might really shine is in an artifact (or artifact heavy) deck as draw for removal. It's isntant speed means that as long as you have two mana untapped, it will be pretty much impossible for your opponent to get rid of it before you use it, and so a lot of opponents, I think this will seem like a bigger threat than it actually is.

Therefore, it will tend to draw their artifact removal to force you to use it before you are ready, it goes back in your deck anyway, and it protects something else that would have normally gotten that removal spell. That's the way I see it working anyway. Gonna run 2 in my old blue/... (see all)
