Wow. This is SO much better than Divination. It digs deeper into your library for answers, if you can afford to pitch a land it gives you card advantage, and even if you can't it still sculpts your hand into something more playable. Great addition for most any cube, and here's hoping Wizards will reprint this during the Return to Ravnica block.

Judging by that flavor text, somebody is making a Frostburn Weird.

Such is the power of Ancestral Recall that even pale, overcosted sorcery-speed imitations of it are considered extremely good.

Great sorcery speed card draw.

Second best darw spell in current Extented (the first one is Thirst of Knowledge) but it's a pity that it is sorcery.

if it was an instant the ban hammer would come on this card swiftly
At sorcery speed, this remains a good, but not broken, draw. In most cases you're going to discard a land anyway (unless you're mana screwed and need all the lands you can get...)

Quicken, then Instant-speed Compulsive. Draw 1 + 3 - 1 = 3 or 1 + 3 - 2 = 2 for 4 CMC at Instant speed? At worst, it's one level below Jace's Ingenuity and at best JI doesn't have jack on this.

Also, subtle "get outside more" undertone.

one of the better draw engines, draw for 3 is good, filling your graveyard also, can fuel madness etc. solid
NOT a strictly worse brainstorm
