Dimir is bored playing with its own deck. But YOUR deck looks fun...

Dimir EDH gold.

An interesting take on Sen Triplets EDH- Especially since that nifty mana clause at the end couples the effects of the former, with that of Mycosynth Lattice (to be clear: avoiding the mana restriction, of red and green in these colors) in one convenient package. Even more appealing is it dips into graveyards AND unlike Sen, you can choose to cast this card at your leisure (it doesn't disappear at "end of turn" like Grinning Totem) akin Praetor's grasp.

Though I personally prefer grasp as its cheaper, and dips into their whole deck. Still, this card is a welcomed addition which offers a plethora of versatility, surpassing similar, previous installments in this archetype.

This card is so friggin cool. I can't wait to pick up a couple of these. To break it down for anyone who overlooks this card without really finding its usefulness, here's everything it does:

1. Allows you to see the opponents hand.
2. Can cause them to essentially discard a card.
3. Allows you to cast that card, even if you don't have the right colors.

This can deal with a huge threat, and then turn it against them. Considering how huge creatures are in this set, we can assume that by turn 5, they're still holding onto something. Then, they even included a failsafe as a bonus; you can target their graveyard.

Beautiful art and design, and I'll definitely be high picking these for the coming months.

Why the low rating? This is easily the card I'm most excited for. It pays for itself by giving you one of their cards and it is never useless since even if they have a hand full of nothing you can still target their graveyard. 5/5 From me.

If you take it from their hand it's a nice two for one and even if you don't this is fun as bojangles.

I opened this in a sealed theros draft and said to myself "you know what? i'm running UB. i may as well give it a try* at least."

i went 2-1 with my only loss being against mono white heroic.

wanna know how i won those other 2?

first opponent, 1 i stole his Polukranos, World Eater. TWICE. in BOTH games. Mnemonic Wall was super helpful

second opponent? I used this to steal his Hero's Downfall. he lost Elspeth right after she hit play. sadface.

i honestly thought this card would be GARBAGE in sealed. but it not only won me a game, it won me 2 full MATCHES. this card is incredible and i love it.

I want to do awful things with this and the likes of Radiate and Reiterate, maybe Melek and Mirari, in a Grixis EDH deck. Awful, awful things.

I wonder if I can actually cast lightning bolt over and over again... what about an infinite supply of memnites?

This IS a kind of scary card. The mana cost is prohibitive for how effective this actually will be in practice, but compare this to Praetor's Grasp and Thoughtseize.

WIZARDS: PLEASE. I hope you know well enough to be Very Careful with how you distribute certain effects around. Yes, I think Dimir kind of Wants/Needs a "I will play your own deck against you" theme a whole lot and for EDH? That's fine. Honestly? I NEVER want to see this strategy accidentally break through to Standard because it's sure to be F'ing Broken as Hell if you, say, lost your cool and made a Crazy Busted Mythic for 3 or 4 mana that did something really nuts.

Lazav thanks you, though. :) And I sort of am awaiting the inevitable, for cards like this to edge their way slowly into Legacy and Vintage because those formats, like EDH, are "Broken-Stupid-Crap-Friendly :D " That's still fine >:( Not even, as like, a deck? Just....even an individual card some... (see all)
