I bet they had this card without the "sacrifice" clause. As in, whenever someone cast a spell with the same name as something exiled with mindreaver, counter it.

That would seem impossibly broken, but Heroic doesn't work with mill. You either have to go full mill and have token targeting spells, or go more voltron-y with token mill. Either way, you're better by just playing Mind Sculpt or Hedron Crab.

One way or another, this isn't a good rare. Even in limited, it'll find little comfort in this set.

Wow this card is so... situational and... bad?
- Heroic means you need to play targeted stuff in it - which is not what you want t do if you use this card.
- 2/1 means he dies vs. even vs 1/1 tokens.
- Counterspell manacost in addition to the sacrifice.

Grimoire Thief wasn't that great to start with. This card is worse on several levels.

Contender for the worst rare of this set!

Do you guys remember Trait Doctoring?

Good because this card is just as bad.

0/5 stars
1/5 if you care about having two mana symbols

hidden strings? using it with cipher cards that keep your opponents creatures locked down so you can move through. i guess is the way to go. not as bad as one might think, just not ideal.

Opened two of this guy in the prerelease... I immediately went home to rethink my life.

Can potentially punish your opponent who keeps their card on top when they scry, but mill would work just as well.

I got two of these during the pre-release. TWO.

I was sad.

You gotta use temporary target cards like hidden strings to not lose value XD.
It's really narrow, but you could use it in a mill deck? The problem is that he sacs himself and if the cost for countering isn't very cheap as well as having a heroic ability. Of curse, if he didn't sac himself, he would be nuts

This is not a mill card and i may open this as i opened two Trait Doctoring of the only 20 boosters i bought from dragon maze ...
Maybe i'm gonna play them tageted with the trait mouhahaha...
No activation cost would have make him playable by the way and maybe exile 4 of 5 cards instead of 3.
