I would say that if you play this, you had better have some plans to back it up. With a cost of four they had better be good ones too. Keep in mind that the draw on this only replaces the card itself. You gain nothing but a (very) slightly smaller deck, and your opponents gain potentially quite a bit, they can also empty their hands of any instants before this resolves.

This might be fun in commander, it may even work in some lock-down mill decks, but the cost makes it weak even then.

Clearly a Johnny card, people. If you don't get it, don't diss it.

Anyone who says this is a bad card seriously needs to stop playing magic. Nao. It's cards like this that really weed out the people who know how to play, and the people who think they know how to play.

This is not just a 'oooo, blue card, I'm going to put it in my deck!' card. You run it specifically for its effect, and you use it in combination with other cards, like many people have already mentioned.

Consecrated Sphinx
Kederekt Parasite
Megrim / Liliana's Caress
Underworld Dreams
Molten Psyche

The list goes on. There are plenty of uses for a card like this. Please stop making 'this card is bad' comments, it makes you look ignorant.

If you plan to use it for milling, go ahead and tack on a Chains of Mephistopheles to really make your opponents cry. The chains will make them discard their entire hand and then mill seven. Add in some Anvil of Bogardan to make sure that nobody has any more cards ever.

Goodfor ub mill or underworld dreams.

Real potential is in an owling mine deck, firemind and/or puzzle box. Do this then hit em
With a cerebral vortex for a solid ten points. All on their turn, too

4/5 for a well designed card, with contextual breakability. Also, a powered down throwback to wheel of fortune (conspicuous in the title)

5/5 on the name

I like to combo this with Megrim / Liliana's Caress / Underworld Dreams. :D

If used early enough it can ruin otherwise playable hands randomly. I.E. similar to burning inquiry, they're getting a new set of random cards which can really really screw them over. Probably card neutral in a bounce deck where you keep almost all of their threats in their hand; and then you can get rid of those threats for new ones :D
