Probably my most favorite card ever printed.
Loved building casual decks around this in M10 or drafting this badboy and loads of large creatures and keep wishing away.

Overall this card is great.

4/4 Flying for that cost isn't exactly bad but this ability is just great.
Obviously the ability works best when you build a deck around it ( Sage Owl, Ponder, Preordian, etc. ) but even without that. You get to play a random card from the top of your deck for a small fee of 4 mana? That's nowhere near bad.


I partied when i heard it was coming back.. the party is still going strong.

This card is absolutely brutal in Momir Vig, Simic Visionary EDH.

Even in a deck not built around it, I've found it very useful. I used it recently in a classic blue milling deck I had built out of a few recent core booster packs. The thing tears apart decks. Since his ability is not a tap, you can simply play a Jace's Erasure, equip him or your other flyers with Curiosity and bombard the opponent well destroying their deck. Then, when the wish counters run out, just throw him against another 4/4 or keep attacking the opponent until you can play a few Jace's Erasure cards.

Totally awesome with Future Sight or Magus of the Future.

I'm thinking about playing this in my EDH deck. I could combo this with Sakashima the Impostor. Just use up all of her wishes, then bounce her back to my hand for more.

Not to complain but why do my wishes cost 2BlueBlue? Aren't I supposed to be free wishes?

This guy's threatening, flavorful, and just plain cool. I'm glad he's back! 4/5
