It's sad when a card that could have so much potential,
And has very awesome art,
Is given the shaft.

What a cool card! If only it weren't obsoleted by several cards, none of which are as rare as this. Would it kill them to print this at 1UU?

I like to combo this with Psychosis Crawler (possibly multiple) and Venser's Journal for some epic lulz. I usually save this for when I get them down to around 5-7 life.

"I let me have a this Stormtide or you'll keep losing life and I'll keep gaining it. trolol"

If the Mirrodin Besieged symbol was silver instead of gold, this card would probably be rated at least a full star higher.

I only play this card in a melting deck, with a couple of Jace's Erasure in play. So if the oponent decide to make me take the card I get what I want otherwise he's going too discard a bunch

I agree with some of the previous comments. This one is really good if your commander gets shuffled up. Otherwise, not so awesome. Unfortunately, as my understanding of the commander rules goes, as soon as it would be exiled, the replacement effect triggers then and you elect to put it in the command zone before you get the choice. So it's a Diabolic Tutor for getting your commander in the command zone. You might as well use it instead.

EDIT: My bad. According to the forum, "that card" isn't put straight from exile to your hand. In other words, it's still the same card, even across zone changes and when in the command zone, so it will go to your hand from there rather than from the exile zone.

I apologize if I repeat anything already said, but I am not going to read every single comment on here when most of them just *** about the card's low power level. Keep in mind this is strictly casual, but there are a few things I like to do with this thing:
1) find a land if I'm mana screwed, so they either give it to me or I get to draw three
2) find a scary card that I already have one of in hand, I usually draw 3 like this but doubles of something fun are nice as well
3) find something completely irrelevant, so they have to wonder, my favorite thing about this card is that it's all about mind-games, as is much of Magic, but this card in particular
and in EDH it helps you out after that Condemn your opponent buried your commander with
it's definitely a weak card and not even close to being one of my favorites, but I always smile like my opponent did exactly what I wanted after this card resolves, I guess I just like to mess with my friends' heads :P

Actually I have found a use for this card. When combines with Leyline of Anticipation this card becomes and Instant get a counter or draw three cards. Amazing when used correctly.
