I use this in my beast deck with Garruk's Horde, so while I'm playing with mana on top I get to put it straight in, and then I can cast a creature. The deck only has 11 non creatures so if I get enough mana I do have to worry about not milling myself...

Sack o' card advantage indeed. The fact that this has seen play in Standard at this point is a testament to the raw power of card advantage. There is not much of a combo to be had here, but it's great for control decks, which always want lots of land down for countermagic, and can often use lifegain and chump blockers against aggro decks when there's spare mana at the end of a turn.

Some cards are good, some are just fun. This one is both.

It's a silly image, but these satchels look pretty jiving with their straps draped over the shoulder of a Galvanoth. Peek at your first card at the beginning of your upkeep, cast it for free if it's a sorcery or instant appropriate for the board situation, then get it out for a net cost of one mana if it's a land. You can get the benefits of drawing and playing a land while saving your draw for what will hopefully be a spell, and you can still play a land during your main phase. Works just as nicely with Delver of Secrets. To my eye, the only reason this doesn't see much play in Standard is that current Delver decks don't need much land on the table to function.

This combo's fantastically with Ponder.

Cast the satchel. Cast Ponder. Put the card you want on top of your deck for when you draw. Put any land cards SECOND from the top. Now, you can pay the satchel's activation cost and get a free land drop!

This is probably one of the best methods for mana ramp in decks that do not run green. Traveler's Amulet is another one, but this one puts the land onto the battlefield ready for use. If you run Ponder, run this too. You won't regret it.

@ Mike-C: If more wars were fought with stuff that looked like this-

a) there'd be less wars
b) wars would be more fun

Let's ban everything more powerful than this card, just for a day. For teh lulz :3

I absolutely adore this card. I dunno why. It's not good enough to be played. But it doesn't suck the least. One of the joys of Magic is to tap this thing, and getting a (mild/good) surprise every turn.
