drpvfx: When your combo uses Black Lotus and Ancestral Recall, it really doesn't count as a combo...

Combo with Laboratory Maniac for an extremely convoluted round one win:

+Dark Ritual
+Black Lotus (Blue Mana)
+Laboratory Maniac
+Tormod's Crypt, sac to empty your graveyard
+Paradigm Shift
+Ancestral Recall
Draw Paradigm Shift, Win Game.

Geez the power level of this card is so off the charts I don't know where to begin! What a crazy spell. I'm surprised it wasn't in Judgement or Odyssey. Crazy effect. 5/5 for just being bonkers.

It's like a Really Really Bad Jace, the Mind Sculptor. :)

Paradigm Shift + Dark Confidant + Cryptic Command = Jace, the Mind Sculptor. Take all the drawbacks off btw. (Paradigm Shift but target anybody, Dark Confidant but no life loss, Cryptic Command with more splashability. o.o )

There wasn't a direct 'permanent' card that is actually as good as Jace, besides like, lands and moxen, which don't exactly count. He's easily the best thing to hit with Dreadbore and will remain so for the rest of time, and that play is even better than Cruel Edicting an Emrakul (Pro Tip: chump block with Storm Crow and Darksteel Plate all day long XD)

Of all the non-Jace permanents to autocard to, I figure that despite mechanical dissimilarities, Dark Confidant evokes the correct vibe of power, card advantage wise, r... (see all)

A strange use for it would be for a burn deck. Lightning Bolts and Ball lightnings in your yard? Be assured your topdecks will pack enough punch to finish the job with this.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
