If an R&D's Secret Lair is in play, the lamp's casting cost would be 55, not 10. This would make for an AWESOME combo with Animate Artifact and something that gives the lamp trample. Needless to say, you will need to cheat the lamp into play, somehow.

"shuffle all but one of them, put the shuffled cards on the bottom of your library, then draw a card."

that explaination text isn't as good as what is printed right on the card. they dont instruct you to put the one chosen card on the top of the library once shuffled. they just say to draw a card...

An interesting card drawing engine, but you need to make sure that you have enough mana to cast what you want to play...plus 10 mana...only Urzatron and 8-Post decks could really use it...

considering when it was printed, this would be a bomb with animate artifact (assuming you can actually get it out), i would say that would be a game ender at that point

For me, the cost is the only thing getting in the way. However, there are plenty of ways to cheat it in or ways to accelerate mana output and all that jazz.

Could definitely be fun in a UG deck with the aforementioned Lorescale and Words for a lot of tokens(and other stuff), if you've got the mana for it. The green could simply provide the mana pumps needed or running a heavy artifact path could also work.

I think it could definitely work with Psychosis Crawler/Niv-Mizzet, maybe an obligatory Curiosity for instant win.

Ah well, not exactly what I wished for.

5 5 never meant 55 mana. If it would have meant then 5 R would mean 5 red mana instead of one read and five of any.

You could Tinker it out.

It's a pretty powerful ability, but there are better things to use ten mana for.

Way overcosted for what it does at 10 mana, much less 55 mana... hehehe...

I guess fling it with Bosh, Iron Golem?

Bludgeon Brawl for a +10 power boost, because lamps are clearly the deadliest weapons in any plane ever.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
