In Flashback decks this is essentially a tutor for six cards at instant speed. If Cyclonic Rift is viable at seven mana because of its instant speed, I'm not quite sure why this card would have less of an impact.

In Standard, I would like to fetch Rush of Blood, Fling, and Dispel with Malignus on the board.

Too bad no one will ever let me keep a Malignus on the board long enough to pull that off.

I opened a couple of these and decided to put them as 1 or 2-of in my casual Izzet deck. And boy, dropping this turn 5 or 6 (at the end of opponents turn, of course) with the help of Goblin Electromancers is a game winner. Why? It gets the answers that I need. If the game is going in my favor I will usually grab Syncopate, Izzet Charm, and Dissipate. However, tutoring up a Cyclonic Rift to overload will probably win the game as well. 1-of means I will rarely draw it opening hand, but will likely bump into it later in the game via Faithless Looting et al.

Maybe overcosted, but super-appealing to draw-go archetype as well. 4/5 from me.

Seven mana for a spell that won't finish the game? Tutoring for three instants should only be four or five mana.

Seriously, if you look at this in a deck that features The Unspeakable and the three cards used to acquire it it can do rather well. Especially with all the card draw the three spells provide.

Your strange interaction with Isochron Scepter is not worth it. 2/5

Every time I glance at this card I see "Firemind's Foreskin" and do a double take.

I think my Numot Sunforger EDH would play this if it didn't already have Sunforger. That said, the ability to find Mystical Tutor, Swerve, and Counterflux all at the same time does amuse me.

This definitely did not need to be seven mana.
