Alright, so I have a question on the and/or wording on the card. What if you play and artifact and you have a copy of the spell in your hand, graveyard, AND library. Would you only get to play the one copy or would you be able to play all three?

i got a question thats probably been asked before...
if i play an artifact and i have 4 of total in my deck, cud i then play the rest of em? or just a 2nd one (something to do with the difference between playing an Artifact and playing an Artifact Spell?)

In response to the very first point, if you cast a spell, the ability triggers. Then if a player were to counter that artifact, then it would go into your graveyard. Since the counter is in response to the cast, it would resolve first. The next effect on the stack would be Mishra's ability. You could then search your graveyard for the countered card and put it into play. Basically, the card becomes even more FREAKING AWESOME because artifacts can't be countered with him on the field. <3 Mishra, only thing that says "screw the stack" more are Zuberas.

This is one of those cards that I really wish they had designed 5 years later, since back when this was made EDH wasn't a thing. :-(

On the plus side, Mishra is awesome, and it's nice to see him get his due in card form. I'm guessing this card represents him around the time he visited Urza at Kayla Ben Kroog's palace and tried to steal Urza's Might Stone; suave, young, powerful, and arrogant. Later on in life, he grew fat and bitter, while earlier he lacked the drive.

This card is awesome, it's only downside is that it costs 3 colors, but this isn't much if you use glimmervoids. I use it in my artifact deck with triskelions and skullclamps. To answer your question, pojomx, I believe it would trigger because it is when you play an artifact, not when an artifact you control is comes into play. If a spell is countered you are still playing it.

If i play an artifact spell, and its countered, Mishra's ability would trigger?

Mishra is very nice in an artifact heavy deck, especially from the Alara block, since they are multi-colored also. I wonder if they will make a planeswalker version of Urza, he'd be better than Tezzeret obviously and even comparable to Nicol Bolas in power. Please make it wizards, Urza deserves to be a planeswalker just as much as Bolas, and surely more than those no name planeswalkers...
