Does the second spell ( the one you get to cast for free ) get put into the graveyard? Or does it get shuffled to the bottom of the library along with everything else?

@Ferlord: Unfortunately, the second spell they cast is cast normally from exile, which means that when it resolves it goes into their graveyard rather than staying exiled. Snapcaster Mage can then target that.

The obligatory red Johnny card, and I love it. :) I played against a younger player who ran this in his DGR draft deck, and it was hilarious. It didn't do him any good, but we had a blast while it was out. Heh .. literally? One time I cast an instant of some kind and flipped Blast of Genius ... as the second-to-last card in my library.

I thought maybe you could do something silly with this and Knowledge Pool, but I don't think it's quite as goofy as I thought it might be.

But yeah, playing this with Curse of Exhaustion is kind of a jerk thing to do, but it works pretty well, doesn't it?

Ah, the possibilities... :3

the spell stays in the stack so an instant would still conter for example, but what happens with enchantments? just leave? i think that helps just with sorcery or instant spells... still great card for chaos and random efect deck

Reminds me of a nerfed red Minds Desire almost! Pretty cool though

I had one epic EDH game where this became my saving grace.

On the field, I had Grip of Chaos, Ensnaring Bridge, and Timesifter out. As the game went on, it became very clear that none of those permanents were going to die.

See, my friend had a Naturalize in his hand soon after I played these three. He, unlike me and my other friend, had very low-CMC spells. So out of the 20 or so TImesifter turns, he only had 2. He became quickly frustrated since he couldn't stop this.

Every time one of us played a spell, it would go to the Possibility Storm. One of them played a Blue Sun's Zenith for 0 and got Reins of Power (which did nothing important). I played a No Mercy which turned into a Bloodchief Ascension. Regardless of he amount of turns we all got, almost nothing productive happened. A shame that one of them Storm'd i... (see all)

Dear god, an aspect of this card that is not getting enough attention is how hard it is to destroy.
"Don't worry, I'll naturalize this thing immediately! Oh bollocks, it appears my naturalize turned into a lightning bolt/(any instant in your deck) as I was casting it, we might have a problem here."
Play in EDH at your own risk, as it might really make people dislike you for turning their elaborate strategy game into ocmplete chaos.
Any combos you make with this you have to set up before you cast this, otherwise your long term plans or likewise spell will turn into something else.
It is one of the most chaotic cards ever printed, think twice before you throw it into a deck, as it can pretty much single handedly turn the game into a very random thing where strategy goes out the window, but if you're one of those disruption loving Johnnies/ Random loving Timmies, this card should make you drool.

Shenanigannous with Scroll Rack. THEY SET US UP THE BOMB.

Possibility Storm is my favorite card in Standard, mostly because dropping it infuriates everyone. Mostly played in Izzet decks, consider a heavily creature based Gruul deck and you'll be popping 8 drops out instead of Elves in no time.

If you cast a creature card with flash during combat, triggering possibility storm, then end up exiling a creature card that does not have flash, are you still allowed to cast it? It says "cast that card without paying it's mana cost", it doesn't say "put it into play", and it certainly doesn't say anything about being allowed to play the card even if you couldn't legally cast it.

Of course, there might be some rule I dot know about that makes this clear.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
