A needed tool for polymorph / mass polymorph decks.

Easier to cast than concentrate, costier than diviniation, and slower than inspiration. I think I'd play all three of them over this card. This one ain't much worse, but it just doesn't deliver too much, for a four mana sorcery speed card draw spell.

@Kryptnyt: this isn't a miracle enabler in any shape. It just helps you not get stuck in one in your hand.

This definitely suffers for being a card that costs 3.5CMC, and we all know wotc would rather go up than down, lest they screw up. If going up ends up being a mistake, worst thing that happens is that another bad cards joins the pile of bad cards. This should still be decent in limited, since triple AVR doesnt seem as fast as DKA/INN draft.

Why did they make a worse version of Sift in a block with lots of graveyard interactions?

Laboratory Maniac, Tunnel Vision, and this.

A rare effect. It remember me Survivor of the Unseen. Maybe useful in a Birthing Pod deck, when you don't want a big-non playable creature in your hand...

I like it. 3/5.

I play Burning Vengeance and blue is merely a splash for card drawing spells so this could serve me very well and will let me throw some miracles in there as well.

Very solid limited color. this very easily could justify splashing blUe in Draft and Sealed. As an optomist I love to see the silver lining in any card even one as Overpriced/Under-powered (pick your own superlative) as this one, if for some reason knowing the bottom card of your liabrary is an advantage or if you have tutors this card all of the sudden becomes much better, although I see this becoming a draft staple, I believe it will stay there barring some unforeseen interaction... sorry some just don't have what it takes

I have the feeling that this is going to get more popular at some point.

If this cost three it would be overpowered, Divination is good enough. And comparing it to Concentrate and Inspiration isn't really useful, since those cards aren't playable in the formats where they're legal. If Concentrate is in M13 the comparison will be relevant and completely in favour of Concentrate, but for now, this is more likely to see play.
