Now let's add Curse of Exhaustion to the list of things that go really well with knowledge pool.

Very curious card indeed. Hope it'll see some constructed play.

I just built a multi-player Knowledge Pool deck, and it was great times. Ornithopters, Memnites, and Everflowing Chalices to retrieve stuff from the Pool for free, and Leyline of Anticipation to do it at instant speed! Mages, both Trinket and Treasure, fetch the necessary components, and Aether Adept ensures that I always have a zero-cost artifact creature to play. Ponder and Foresee help to set up turns and keep my hand full, and Emrakul is there for shenanigans. My play group hated it.

I can't help but think that your comment is directed at me

Silly board state:
The opponent controls an Eye of the Storm. You control a Knowledge Pool. It's your turn, and you cast Noxious Revival. Your trigger goes on the stack (as you are the active player). Then, your opponent's trigger will go on the stack on top of it. Your Pool won't work, as the requirement of "casting from the hand" is not met. No spell from EotS is cast from the hand, they are copies put on the stack. HOWEVER, if the same combination of cards is out and it is your opponent's turn (in 2 player), EotS's trigger hits, then Knowledge Pool. Knowledge Pool resolves first. Then, if the spell on the stack still meets the requirements of EotS (i.e. being an instant or sorcery), it will resolve as normal. If it is any other type of spell (creature, enchantment, planeswalker), the trigger doesn't work because it no longer has a valid target (the spell is in exile and does not exist for EotS to exile again). If a singl... (see all)

This and Teferi means your opponents can't play spells period.

Hey, it's a new Ice Cauldron. That makes slightly more sense.

MrBenderRodriguez, I salute you! Do you read From the Lab? :)

For the record, The Knowledge Pool + Mind's Desire combo deck I submitted? I STILL haven't figured out how it works! Rules Manager Matt Tabak had this to say to me when I emailed him:

Mindbreak Trap. Go Away.
