If you play a lot of finishers like i have a habbit of doing. This card can own in a hurry i once 2 ink well lethathan and a sophren sphix lets just say i won that round. While you can get some 3 drops you can get some of the best cards in the game out for nothing. This card might not be the ultimatum in the world its a worthy rare

It feels like it should be great but I've never got anything good out of it when using it. The concept of the card is great, it's just not what I'd chose to spend my seven mana on!

This is how Mind's Desire was balanced? Mataku, this is boring.

I play with a white, black, and blue deck and personally love this card. Its very useful since I have a uber powerful creature card almost every other card and the person who makes the piles cant look at the cards and the mana cost is not that big look at progenitus.

I like Titanic Ultimatum more

Worst of the Ultimatum cards by far. Not only that, but if your opponent separates the piles, 2 and 3 respectively, chances are there's going to be 2-3 lands scattered amongst them. Which means you'll probably be looking at the option of playing 2 spells at most. For 7 mana you could cast 2 other spells, without having to exile any cards.

The only real benefit of this is saving the other spells in your hand and being able to cast something in your library, but I'd rather have the open card slots than put this in. 2/5 for novelty sake only.

@esperzoa: they do get to look at the cards.

This is only cool if it lets you play something you wouldn't be able to play- like something requiring more cost than you have payable means, but if you can make the casting cost for this you aren't too far off from casting ANYTHING anyways.

I played this a couple times, once I got a couple angels out for free and that was a game winning move at the time. The other time, well I don't even remember what it was, but I remember I could have made the play for less mana. That has to do with deck design more than anything else, but I think I'm going to leave it out this time. Maybe if I draw into stuff that makes this look useful I'll switch it in and try it during the tune up after a couple games.

O and- I do think the card looks cool as hell. I'm going to give it a 3.5 instead of a 3 just for that!

wow, all the other ultimatums OWN this one.
0.5/5, i'll give it that much for creativity.

Absolute worst ultimatum. At this mana cost, you should have been able to SEARCH for five cards. Instead, it's just plain terrible. There's a reason it sells for next to nothing.

What happens if you play a card with X in its mana cost?
