"You Fatesealed me and left the card on top? I don't think I'll like the card on top of my deck. I'm drawing a Shock instead."

I thought the choice was Cake or Death?

Also completely shuts down Underworld Dreams decks, allowing you to convert the extra draws they typically give you into something useful.

Most of the Words cycle is good (except Words of Wind, natch) but this is probably the best. Easily-triggered, repeatable damage which can absolutely eat unprepared weenie decks, yet is actually pretty fairly balanced.

It's great in Vercursion. Infinite Damage right away. Using the draw power of a Verduran Enchantress and a Shimmering Wings, you can cast and re-cast Shimmering Wings over and over again, choose to draw a card, pay a colorless instead, and boom. And with Fastbond / Crucible of Worlds / Zuran Orb, you don't need to worry about Mana.

Combo (sort of) with Swans of Bryn Argoll. At the least it lets you draw an extra card for 1.

After being released right after a block/set with Browbeat, this became a tone of fun. 5 damage for 3 mana or I draw cards in combination with burning the eff out of you--your pick.

does anybody know how this and the other cards of this cycle work with damnia sage of stone
Posted By: jakejake2000 (12/8/2011 11:31:03 AM)


@jakejake2000: Damia, Sage of Stone says "draw cards equal to the difference." Which means "Figure out how many cards you would need to draw to get up to seven, then draw that many cards." You could then replace any of those draws with this card's effect, but those cards are not drawn. Damia's effect doesn't go back, see that you didn't actually draw some of those cards, and let you draw more.

So if you have two cards, Damia tells you to draw five cards. If you activate this twice in response to that then you will draw three cards and deal 2 damage twice.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
