It's legal in EDH since you can't deck someone simply by having this and a larger deck than your opponent. For that matter it's hard to mill people out in general in EDH.

Play this with Hive Mind, Cast Through Time, and Eye of the Storm out on the field. Right before your opponent concedes, Twincast it.

Cards like this made it ok for designers to experiment. If Richard Garfield could meta-reference his own game and acknowledge that it was a fantasy world represented in a table-top game in a card in the very first expansion set, later generations could do anything... Wishes, Goblin Game, Battle of Wits. Whatever.

The most annoying deck in the world:

Shahrazad x4
Twincast x4
Panoptic Mirror x4
pyromancer ascencion x4
izzet guildmage x4
etc.

"We play another game, any objections mr. blue mage?"
"Dude, I have no hand..."
"Ok, twincast, twincast,twin cast, and izzet guildmage"
"...wtf"

WHY ON EARTH is this legal in Commander!? Wasn't this banned because it's annoying as {insert various expletives}?

I refuse to play with anyone that runs this in their Commander deck. It is no fun to play against. One game of Commander is already long enough, two games is just ludicrous. Don't get me wrong, I love Magic, I love Commander, but there IS such a thing as "too much of a good thing", and this card shoves it down your mouth.

"Lol you guys are funny. The reason this is banned now, is because back when it was printed, Fork wasn't restricted, and you could play with 10. So the ideas was get them in so many sub games within sub games that eventually whoever had a bigger deck started winning. Twin casting this isn't anything compared to someone with 20 Black Lotus in play and a hand full of Forks."

Patently false. The limit of four cards of a name per deck was imposed long before there was even a sanctioned Type 1 format that could have had a restricted list. Shahrazad was banned on September 1st, 2007, after it had had a long time to exist next to an unrestricted Fork / Twincast. Nobody put them together in a competitive Vintage deck.

Want to know why it actually was restricted? Here's the word from Aaron Forsythe: http://www.wizards.com/magic/magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtgcom/daily/af186
