A very weird card to imprint on an Isochron Scepter.

LordRandomness: Except even if X is 1 the first time around, it can be a different number the next time. You could cast it for a low value of X early on, then later on flip your graveyard into exile to look at the top 26 or so. (I'm not sure if you meant otherwise or not, but it's quite an important distinction between this and Think Twice. :P )

If you assume X is 1, it's {2}{U}: Draw a card, flashback {1}{U} (the exile one card is a pretty negligible cost, let's be honest). It's like a backwards Think Twice. Which obviously isn't as good because Think Twice likes being cheaper to cast the first time around, but then you have the versatility to go card digging if you need to.

Overall, this and Think Twice fill very similar slots in a deck, and this is probably better with self-mill strategies (costing {1} less to flashback and requiring a cost you can pay by exiling cards you milled that aren't useful in the graveyard, and that's without even considering the digging potential)

@manaderp: Well, I did say assuming you use X as 1, which was basically a sort of "this can be compared to Think Twice, plus it then has additional functionality". But I take your point.
