Meh. Yeah, it's great in standard, but this card sucks terribly in EDH.

the printing of liliana of the veil certainly boosted this card's power level..

Repeatable removal, win condition, very good card.

But, let's discuss the flavor! The opponent choosing the random card out of your hand is mimicing him finding a scroll. Choosing the wrong one (the one you named) means he found the cursed scroll and is punished.

What's more entertaining however is that repeating this process is like your planeswalker seeding the entire battlefield with scrolls and the opponent/his creatures don't learn, but instead just keep picking them up to have their face burned off.

Greedy.

Very very strong. Cheap, repeatable shocks can't be overlooked.

Direct damage in any color? Sure, {R} and {B} might not find this that great, but {G} and {W} find it awesome! Works great when you have only one card in hand, and works well with things like Squadron Hawk.

The name makes more sense with the original wording.
