The development points to Exiled 2.0 arriving soon.
Extra-Exiled, Post-exiled, Extra-dead-zone. etc.

Yup, this plus Past in Flames means you'll never run out of gas, ever. You'll only be limited by how much mana you have.

Sorry to inform, this isn't a new effect, nor is it even the most flexible in retrieval.

Pull from Eternity, and Riftsweeper.

I prefer Pull, even though its original function was stopping suspend. Regardless, if you really want a card that you can't retrieve, grab AWOL, lol.

2/5 - It FEELS good, and it looks good at first glance, "hey, an extra spell that has flashback!" but it's not, heres why:

it's a dead draw until you've actually played, and flashbacked a spell, even then, it's only as useful as the card you've flashbacked. and 3 mana at sorcery speed, really? no tricky combat tricks, no card advantage (lose a card in your hand to gain a card)

at the time of writing (after my rating) this card is 4/5 on 30 votes, never disagreed with a gatherer rating so much before.

just a final quick note on combos previously mentioned:

@lordranndomness, 17 mana and 3 cards for 18 mill.
@gabriel, past in flames costs 5 to flashback, meaning even a good solid sorcery for 3 will be a total of 8 to play. adding runic repitition increases the mana cost-effectiveness ratio exponentially, and it requires specific cards in hand AND graveyard.
@lyoncet, probably the best combo mentioned... given sorcery speed it relies on your opponent letting you draw 3, and you deci... (see all)

This will join Riftsweeper in the "hundreds of players will expend thousands of hours trying to craft a broken combo with this card" pile.

The first person to successfully daisy-chain Yawgmoth's Will in a tournament with this card wins a free lifetime subscription to Johnny Magazine. No seriously. Please. Somebody. Make it happen.

So...Dream Twist. Flashback. Runic Repetition. Dream Twist. Flashback. Snapcaster Mage flashbacking Runic Repetition. Dream Twist. Flashback. 18 mill for three cards, none of which cost more than 3 to cast. I'm sure there are much better applications, but this + Snapcaster is way too hilarious to pass up, given that it gives you SIX casts of a flashback spell, plus the snapcaster body.

Followed, of course, by Pull from Eternity and Call to Mind twice each and something to bounce the Snapcaster. At which point you do it all again, then use a pair of Snapcasters to duplicate the Pull and Call. (First paragraph works in standard or even Innistrad block though, which is kind of amusing)

...I'd make this deck just for the sheer hilarity, but Snapcaster Mage is expensive =(

This is really interesting. If the opposition uses a spell to exile a card that has flashback right after you play/summon it, this actually lets you pull it out of exile. Maybe you never even got to use the flashback ability or the main ability for that matter and this cards lets you bring it back, that's pretty legit. Provided you have some flashback cards that make a big enough impact on the game.

I love using Runic Reception with Think Twice, also having Secrets of the Dead and Mystic Retrieval works with this awesome combo. Keep on drawing cards if you manage it.

If you're up for some Retro I found the Card that BREAKS this, Eye of the storm from Ravinca. Even though Eye has a high casting cost it breaks this card bad. For more details check out my post on the Discussion for "Eye of the Storm"

@Saikuba: You're welcome

@Salient: Sorry it wasn't Yawgmoth's will and it may not be legal in all that many tournaments :P
