The only card restricted in Vintage that isn't banned in another format.

LOL, Black Lotus is so powerful that any version, any attempt to "fix" it is automatically broken too. People who don't see the might in cards like this... I just don't understand it.

I have one of these. It counts as an artifact, so that's good.

Best flavour text in magic? Yessir I think so. I love the "meta" component.

IMO its just a well made card. YES, it does make some insane combo decks work, but none are so powerful they are dumb. Its just well made.

This card would be too powerful even if it cost 1.

Barbed Sextant costs 2 and has the same feature, plus "Draw a card at the beginning of the next turn's upkeep." which is available in plenty of 1 cards that *all* have some other bonus in addition to that effect.

So, even if this would cost 1 instead of 0, I could do the following combo:

Lotus Petal + Act of Treason to take control of your best creature and attack you with it + Telim'Tor's Edict to exile your creature from the game, and I get to draw an extra card at the beginning of the next turn.

So the exile effect, gaining 1 mana of whatever color I want, and drawing an extra card at the beginning of the next turn, all for 1 + Red = 2 CMC.

Or, I could play a Barbed Sextant for 2 and I don't get to exile my opponent's card. Every color has at least one 1 CMC card that can allow me to draw an additional card at... (see all)
