Should be interesting to see who breaks this card first.

Think of it as you wish, but this is actually quite playable in mono Black control.

This card isn't good. It's not going to be "broken". 6 mana tutors are bad. Cards like Gifts Ungiven can fetch you multiple cards and cost 4. EDH won't play it because every other tutor is better. This is a bad card. It somehow manages to be worse than the OK Diabolic Tutor.


-Increasing Ambition sees play when A. you're not running good tutors and/or B. You're playing from your GY (thus, it isn't wasting away in your hand the whole game.)

-You are saying a card is good because you can sink 13 mana into it to make it good. I'll let you figure out the big flaw there.

-Where is this Fireball comparison coming from? X damage spells kill on their own. If you have the mana to dump into this and make it "good", then you can dump that mana into and a X damage spell and kill them in one turn instead.

-Since when did dumping a ton of mana into an X spell, then waiting a turn and hopefully having enough mana to play your 3-card combo become epic?

I understand it might... (see all)

1. Omniscience.


2. Boundless Realms Boundless Realms Boundless Realms Boundless Realms :D

SEE? I know what I'm doing :)

I don't promise it's the best idea out there, but I like it anyway :)

This thing suckors. It was so close to being useable - this should have been BBB1X or screw it B3X and it would have shown up in decks. Perhaps if it was an instant. The standard format is too competitive right now and using this card basically costs you a full turn. I agree with other posters, perhaps 4 mana and pay 2 life per card...or pay 1 life for 1st card, 2 for 2nd 3 life for 3rd etc. As it stands now this thing sucks. In commander yeah very limited use for a gimmick deck. This card as a rare is a miss.

@ atemu1234: This isn't genuinely breaking it, but I think the value of this card increases if you're playing to discard it and you have Altar of the Lost and some way to give this Flashback. As well as normal mana acceleration.

@ JarieSuicune: This helps, but Battle of Wits would probably break your deck more (but of course people will expect it as soon as they see the deck).
