What I like about this card is how it looks, at first glance, like a pretty small effect.

And the mana cost is absurdly high and color dense.

In other words, it looks ancient. It's primitive. It's almost obsolete.

I think the insanely high flashback cost might be intended to prevent combo potential with dredge.

The worst way to spend 12 mana I've ever seen.
