Extremely annoying to play against. Extremely stupid to play when your board position is bad, and your hand isn't prepared to deal with it. Tread lightly, or preferably, don't play this card.

Great in multiplayer... if you're the sort of person who likes politics. I like playing it, announcing I plan to never pay the life, and then watching other players agonize over whether to thoughtseize-fateseal each other.

A few days ago I met an EDH deck that ran this.

The funny thing was that I started the game with Bloodchief Ascension in my hand and put it out turn 1.

Needless to say, out of the 4 people playing, NO ONE got to draw a card (obviously I wasnt allowed to draw either, as revenge). Luckily I was running a reanimation/mill deck with a clone imprinted on a Mimic Vat and a Mnemonic Wall in play... so yeah.. I didnt mind.

This is not an instant win card. A deck running this has to still contend with the cards the opponent has already played while also doing things to ensure that the lock is beneficial. "Players can't draw cards" doesn't help you if goblins are beating you down.

I'm still in disbelief. Every time I see this, I have to look it over at least two or three times. In some sort of blue tempo strategy, it opponents simply can't draw cards, while they're down on life so they won't risk not letting you draw cards.

I'm decent with rulings in magic but if you were to use words of worship with this then you wouldn't draw cards, just gain life while you're forcing them to slowly mill. I think words of worship would replace the draw before it even happened therefore overriding the weirding effect
