Mana Drain is obviously worse than this, because this clashes. So you know the top card of the opponent's deck AND you get to steal their mana. What more could you ask for.

Anyone who says they'll use this over Mana Drain obviously uses Ancestral Visions over every draw card, Control Magic over Mind Control, Counterspell over Cancel, and Time Walk over Time Warp.

Because obviously those cards are so much better, using other cards would just be silly.

They doubled Mana Drain's cost and made its mana-gaining effect flat out fail half the time. And it's still usable.

That shows you just how broken Mana Drain really was.

What if someone actually has been playing Magic for these past 20 years and PULLED the mana drain from a booster pack???

Granted I dont have mana drain myself, but I do have duals and other older cards. Should I apologize because I own these cards and want to use them?

Now if someone actually did buy a mana drain just to win in a casual setting, then yeah that is a bit much.
