This and Shadowborn Apostle are in Standard at the same time right now.

Misthollow Griffin wants to search the city!

It's bad card design, in that it rewards something that shouldn't need rewarding. To make this work, you'd really want all of the cards in your deck to be 4-offs, but everyone who can afford to buy singleton cards pretty much already does that. I'd much rather see something that rewarded you for playing a bunch of different cards, to promote creativity in deck-building.

Not likely to work when it first comes to play due to high cost. With a disenchant or similar next round, you'd lose five cards for nothing as I assume the cards would remain in exile. Let's see if someone comes up with a good use for this one.

The synergy with Relentless Rats makes even some sense flavorwise:
A ratcatcher is likely to find lots of rats when he searches the city :D

Hardcore combo with Mirror of Fate: Thin your library down horribly to a set of cards of (sort of) your choice, then take an extra turn with them. You still need to leave one card on Search the City so you can cast it and trigger the extra turn, unfortunately.

Huh, this works with flashback. Burning Vengeance anyone?

I agree that this card was created entirely for casual play. It's PURE flavor. It's interesting to run actually, it's like a mind game for you AND you opponent. It's similar to (eventually) drawing 5 cards, but the fact that everyone can see what you're searching for changes things. You're gunna be more likely to use that threat removal, or overextend that creature if you KNOW it's getting replaced. I agree that you'll need to run mono-blue with this though.

I don't know, I appreciate WoTC making cards for casual players. It's not the most potent card, but it's nowhere near as bad as people think.
