With emrakul recently released, this card finally saw a bit of play. And then it's going to cycle out by october.

I play this with Jhoira of the Ghitu in a deck with otherwise uncastable cards. Seems like it fits right in.

Hmm, out of this pile, what do you let me play?

Greater Gargadon
Emrakul, the Aeons Torn

Even with some lands in there, there's still no good choice.

This is a monster of a spell in EDH where you most certainly will lay out some fatties.

This is the worst Ultimatum spell. Cruel Ultimatum is the best...

At 7 mana, you are probably paying more to cast this than any spells that you reveal.. There is a big chance of pulling 2 or 3 land cards and a couple 1 - 3 mana cost spells... Especially in modern.. The designers failed huge when they made this for Esper.. Opponent puts 1 land in each pile, 1 decent spell in one pile and 2 very low casting cost spells in the other. You just overpaid to cast a couple cheap spells or 1 decent spell... This is pathetic either way.

I gave this 1 star because it is totally unplayable and the other Ultimatums are so powerful.

"I cast brilliant ultimatum and flip:"

Brilliant Ultimatum
Brilliant Ultimatum
Brilliant Ultimatum
Brilliant Ultimatum

Opponent: "Umm???"

It's "Best Case Scenario Mentality" the Card!

I love it and want it all the time.
