lol this card is good...drawing 4 for 3 with a set of jace erasure i'm pretty sure your opponent would not like to draw again... and in a blue/black deck...using jace erasure+sorin markov+quicken/leylene of anticipation+trade secrets is a sure deck mill;)))

This is a horrible card any smart opponent would mill you to death with this. Provided they have more than half the amount of cards in their library as you. This card is basically a you lose the game card.

An opponent once played this against me, and I chose to draw into the thirties until the card advantage he got no longer matters anymore. I think I ended winning that one, 'cause I ended up getting a good grip of counterspells while he played combo. (Compulsion + Basking Rootwalla + Words of Wind)

Idk about you championofsquee, but if I were the opponent I would keep drawing until whoever the jackass who played both Consecrated Sphinx and Trade Secrets milled out.

It's very risky to accept such a drawback in return for a mana cost reduction of only 2 by modern standards (see tidings). Giving your opponent more cards while you spend mana is pretty bad in today's game. I feel like this card did not age all that well. In a competitive environment any single card your opponent draws has the potential to, say, kill all your creatures, or seal that last bit of damage to take out your blue mage ass, long before even two of those 4 u got get off.

That said, pretty strong potential in UB recoil and discard type control. If u can pop their draws instantly with a cao cao or something ur good to use this
