The only permanents I've ever seen played via Yawgmoth's Will, really, were Lotus (Black Lotus, Lotus Petal). And maybe sometimes a Mox that got hit by an opponent's Nature's Claim, or a spent Memory Jar. That's just a few cards out of sixty in a storm deck, and you can cast Past in Flames twice.

The first Vintage deck I'm going to try will attempt to put Tinker in the graveyard (or draw it) and cast it with Past in Flames (possibly taking advantage of the fact that Past in Flames lets cards land in your graveyard from dredging-type stuff *after* it has been cast, unlike Y's Will). Boom, drop the Time Vault combo, win the game. 3x Past in Flames, 4x Burning Wish, fourth PIF in the sideboard.

I haven't been this excited to see a card announced since... uh, Innistrad's Snapcaster mage. Which along with Rune-Scarred Demon has completely transformed and revitalized Vintage. Makes you wonder if Wiza... (see all)

For those wondering about flashback with the Zeniths, the Zenith will be exiled due to flashback rather than being shuffled back into your library.

701.15d If an effect would cause a player to shuffle one or more specific objects into a library, and a replacement or prevention effect causes all such objects to be moved to another zone instead, that library isnt shuffled.Example: Black Suns Zenith says, in part, Shuffle Black Suns Zenith into its owners library. Black Suns Zenith is in a graveyard, has gained flashback (due to Recoup, perhaps), and is cast from that graveyard. Black Suns Zenith will be exiled, and its owners library wont be shuffled

702.32a Flashback appears on some instants and sorceries. It represents two static abilities: one that functions while the card is in a players graveyard and the other that functions while the card is on the stack. Flashback means You may cast this card from your graveyard by paying rather than paying its mana cost and If the... (see all)

Me and most of my friends thought this was pretty narrow, especially for a mythic. Wouldn't do that much.

Then one guy ran a couple in his flashback deck. Turned out every turn he played it, ALL his opponents died. ALL OF THEM.

This is brutally good. With a single Burning Vengeance on the field Galvanic Blasts hit you for five. Lightning Bolts are worse, but this guy insisted on his own decks being standard as a test of his deck-building capabilities. Only Aggro could stop it, and we never knew beforehand what decks we'd be up against...

I recently got my hands on two of these little beauties, and I couldn't be happier. I had just finished putting together a mono-black storm/broken shit deck, and I thought it'd be fun to make a U/R version, because I love recursive play styles. Anyway, I don't have the U/R storm cards yet, so it's just a self mill/burn deck that usually flashes this back to win. So, after a while of messing around with this, I can say that there are a lot of instances where I'd use this over Yawgmoth's Will. This is easier to abuse via self-mill due to flashback, and being able to keep a chain going after casting it. Of course, 1 on 1, will is a lot better, but this works surprisingly nicely in multiples where will doesn't. This card has the feel of breaking the game wide open, while not being as balls-out ridiculous as the will. I guess I can do a point by point.
Past in Flames:
Very resilient
Works in multiples
Works multiple times
Can get back most of what it needs to

This not Banned Where Everywhere because it's Not as Good as Yawgmoth's Will.

It is NOT as good as Yawgmoth's Will. Worth repeating.

So it's not as strong as one of the most common candidates for the Tenth member of the Power Nine. :P So? It's still going to give you some of the most Powerful Turns you can have in Magic. It's comparable in power-level to Time Warp- a fair, Very Powerful, broadly applicable to most MAGIC games card.

I love this. Run lots of 1 or 2 mana burn spells/removal spells (+ whatever else), and then pay something like 7 mana for 3 1-mana spells (like oust, flame slash, and steelshaper's gift). It's very powerful and very fun.

5/5 - Awesome mythic.

Storm decks are going to have fun with this.

Fixed YawgWin! I don't know how well it'll work in standard, but modern loves it!

Apparently, she just takes this glass of wine... err, blood wherever she goes.

Hello, YawgWin, my old friend
I've come to cast with you again
For some zombies slowly creeping
Left my opponents greatly weeping...

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
