This card seems to expensive and much too risky for any practical use. While it will put a damper on what your opponents play, it hurts you in that same fashion, as you don't want to put yourself in harms way with your own spells. And besides, if you get far enough in to play this, you're gonna want to drop your bombs to win, not to have them mirrored back on you. The only use I could possibly see for this would be in a creature based blue deck with little in the line of spells, and that notion just makes me laugh at the ridiculousness of it.

MasterofEtherium may type annoyingly, but he's damn right. Why can't it cost 3U?

I for one think this would be a fun card to use in a game with multiple opponents, or in a team game. One thing is for sure...It would be almost impossible to replicate any game you ever played.

I could see using these with fun cards and Swerve. That would just be awesome to see. I also see this card as more of a problem for your opponent than yourself actually. I mean, it will definitely stop your opponent from playing Lavalanche on you. If it had a lower casting cost I bet it would see more play in standard.

Only good in large multiplayer games. Most fun I've had with this is slap down a Flame-Rift right after I played this in a 5 player game. From what I understand, a good card to use this with is Arc Blade for some multiplayer chaos. After this is out you cast it, everyone copies it and then suspends a copy. 3 turns later it triggers, everyone copies it and then suspends another copy. Making a large amount of suspended copies to keep track of.

This card would do excellent in combo with certain other cards, and make it so that it only benefits you.

Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir
Eye of the storm
Djinn illuminatus

Along with cards that have things like replicate and storm. (maybe flashback)

This way, you get everyone's spells, you get to replicate them, and the only time anyone else can benefit from any of these is during their main phases. Then, you can most likely whip out something to prevent that too.

Megrim (3rd turn)+ Hive mind (6th turn) + 2 burning(7th turn).... I'm so rude.

use this correctly and its insanely powerful and i do mean stupidly powerful. if you just want a fun time put it in a red/blue blasty deck start a big multiplayer and watch the fun fly nothing quite like 8 people doing shock spells.

but if you want to use it for power put in mana cost X cards, the copies always count as having zero mana paid as X meaning whilst you get a nice fireball or whatever, they get diddly squat and if the try to counter it you can counter their counter with their own spell.

or just use cards that effect everyone megrim + one with nothing means for 1 black everyone discards their hand.

however i doubt the stuff you said graklinghunter will work, as you never cast them you can't pay extra to replicate them, as they are copies they don't count for storming purposes. and teferi ain't stopping shit, they would still get the copies, as teferi just makes it so they can only cast spells when they could a sorcery it do... (see all)

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
