Seriously underrated. It's a build-around card, but building around it leads to a lot of fun. Fishing up Curse Of Thirst with this, you do two damage a turn, and if you're using a dedicated curse deck, you'll be a lot of cool effects to that, not to mention a lot more damage.
Sure, it's a little expensive, but if you're really that worried, ramp creatures and Semblance Anvil have your back. 4.5/5.

Reads card title "Curse of Misfortunes". Reads card.

Is it a misfortune because I pulled such a bad card?

Not that it has no potential, if they print more and better curses. But as of the time of this post it is a very bad card, even in draft.

Here's the problem with this curse: At this time, there are some genuinely great and playable curses. But they don't work together all that well. They are much better used when complementing a strategy that they can lend themselves to. So unless WotC prints something that makes them work better together, this won't see much play. This is a step in the right direction, but it's not enough to make this type of deck really competitive.

Cards like this and the Bitterheart Witch allow you to pull those curses out for free and start piling them onto the opponent. This initially seems a great idea because curses are quite costly, but the selection of curses is a bit small and poor.

This would be a much better card though if there were some better curses, I wanted to build a curse deck, but it would just be too slow. Maybe it would work in Commander. I'm hoping for more curses in future sets.

I'm building a deck with this, using Kor Spiritdancer (even though you only draw the card when the Aura is cast), obviously the best Curses on Black, Red and White. Seal of Doom, Seal of Fire, Auratog, Dega Sanctuary, Tragic Poet, Replenish, Curse of Chains and Nettling Curse (even though those last two aren't really Curses, but they have "Curse" in their names. It's not going to be very good, but I think it might be fun. I'm hoping the new Ravnica block will bring some curses along. I don't think they'd be off-theme in Ravnica; it's a pretty curse-y place.

The title of this card seems to refer to me constantly pulling this out of boosters
