Best Cipher card in the set IMO.

I've seen enough Japanese 'stuff' to know where this is going...

Everyone can stop complaining about this being the only playable Cipher card. Paranoid Delusions is just as playable, PD, Jace's Phantasm and Mind Sculpt let you have a 5/5 flier by turn 3 and have 25 cards out of your opponents library. I dunno about you but I like that.

"Just swallow your pride, Dimir, and say detain. Just say it."

this is better than detain since you can attack in your next turn after playing this and the creature will be tapped
with detain on the other hand he can block in your next turn

The following is a real life tran*** of a conversation in R&D

Designer 1: Hey lets make a cool mechanic called Cipher or Encode or whatever the hell and then only make one playable card for it!

Designer 2: Well that doesn't make any sense but okay! Count me in! Better yet, for some really good laughs, lets make that one playable card a freakin' common!!

Designer 1: Hell yeah! And then, when people inevitably complain that Cipher sucks, which it does, we'll just tell them that we know what you need better than what you know that you need!

Designer 2: Wait, what? That doesn't make any...

Developer 1: Oh hey guys! Are you talking about that one good card for the Cipher mechanic? I'm starting to think we shouldn't print it. It might be too powerful. We should go all Overload on it and make Cipher unquestionably suck, which it does. Anyways, you guys wanna grab a pizza? Then we can come back and try to find ways to make Friends suck too.

Designer 1: Pizza sounds great! An... (see all)

Cipher just SCREAMS 'ninjas'. This is probably the best candidate for a ninja deck too.

Yes... Things are being put in motion.
So you say you've got Aurelia?

The only playable Cipher-Card (outside of super casual or slow environments).
So much for Dimirs-keyword :/

So now we can cast copies of spells? Because we can only copy spells on the stack, and have to cast copies of exiled spells... this only further muddles an unclear point.

Just played with this and against this at the pre-release. With the sever lack of good removal in this set, this plus Metropolis Sprite was brutal.
