this is the best version of the card, simply because of the flavor text. The effect is quite good as well. ^_^

Seems like this would be fantastic with Meddling Mage or Nevermore type cards. Of course, most of the time Gitaxian Probe will probably be better for your deck in general, and the argument could be made you shouldn't really need to look at your opponents hand. Because most of the time, you should in general have an idea on what's in your opponents hand. For example, an opposing blue deck with 7 cards in hand and 2 or more mana up has a counter spell. A white control deck likely has a wrath effect sitting in their hand, ect.

Another draw back is it's one of those enchantments that don't stack, so a second one is normally a dead draw. This is another reason why Gitaxian Probe is more preferable. You get to draw card off it. And it costs less.

However, I would still play this card. Why? Because it looks like it'd be fun. Plus there's a psychological factor to it, to an extent. Your opponent has no secrets, and they kn... (see all)

Oh, this is ANNOYING to see turn one. You all talk about being able to guess your opponent's hand but you forget, a lot of players rely on bluffing to make you paranoid about counters, burn, removal, etc. Not being able to pull off some annoying combat trick or catch an opponent off guard really messes your game up.

SImply put, it's a decent political EDH card. No one really benefits or gets hurt. No one is going to waste a Naturalize on it in case a Defense of the Heart or, god forbid, a Contamination hits the table.

However, it's also an amateur EDH staple. What I mean is that if an amateur were to make an EDH card, they'd play this over something that'd help them more, because "they don't want to be hated".

Sure, there are lots of cards that will make you into a bulls-eye (especially in black, like Contamination or Oppression), but you still need something it help you win. If you waste a space using a card that doesn't put you ahead at all, then you're not playing EDH right.

Yeah, no use in EDH, right? Well, I built a Vendilion Clique EDH deck, and...

Decent enough, can't tell if I want to ever run it or not; need to experiment.

To the problem of multiples:
What I do is take the Greater Good approach to these cards. Yes it's useless in multiples, but you can use card filtering effects to get rid of the multiples and gain some benefit. In this case simple Looter effects are in color and all over the place. Many popular blue draws have you discard after you draw, or brainstorm like effects (to which you add shuffling.)

Consider these if you wish to use telepathy

This card also feels kind of like Azorious in nature.

There are no secrets in a court of law.

Say whatever you guys want, it found a niche in my Nebuchadnezzar EDH.

I disagree with the statement that this is an amateur edh card. In my opinion it's an amazing edh card, especially turn 1. Found a great home in my Teferi/knowledge pool edh and let's my opponents see each other's threats and I can set up counters so I can dictate what's going to be on board when Teferi and knowledge pool comes out lol.

It's a god thing Counselor Troi was not telepathic, she probably would have blushed to death from her male clients.
