Seems like a solid multi-player card. In my EDH meta, we play multi-player all the time. It'd be nice to be able to tutor up an Austere Command in my Rafiq deck. If someone's about to go off with a Karn deck or an Experiment Kraj deck, one of the opponents would give me the card to deal with the mutual threat. It's a political card. And, if you want to tutor up a threat of your own that gets vetoed, at least you still draw three. I really doubt that this card was designed for standard, but for multi-player formats.

I could see this being fairly useful in EDH. Good for politics, and why is everyone ripping on Concentrate? I've seen plenty of "competitive decks" use Foresee.

Eh why do I even bother, I read the first page of comments on Jace, the Mind Sculptor. All stating how he was underwhelming and overcosted. *sigh*

Two words and this card becomes constructed-playable.

This card is going to be REALLY fun in my Misthollow Griffin deck. I either get the griffin, or I get the griffin and draw three cards.

Not true. It's going to see play in my Misthollow Griffin deck in the standard format.

pshh this card is amazing when paired with Psychosis Crawler.

"do you wanna lose 3 life... or let me possibly get out another Psychosis Crawler?"

"psych! it was a land!"

unless you have to show it to everyone... then this card blows haha

It's a decent card. It's better than Library of Lat-Nam. Just barely. Ultimately, the cheaper mana cost seems to me to be significant here, even though Library doesn't get any of your cards exiled. There's always Pull from Eternity. :p This has the potential to be a sort-of "Diabolic Tutor or Concentrate?" in Blue, with a wierd loop to jump through, that 10 bucks says some *** is going to come along and break in casual. If all you want is just Concentrate or Diabolic Tutor, then those are each better.

If you like mind games, and want to do it in Standard (or your opponents know not to play against Darth Jace and his Dropping Stars of Evil Doom), then this card is perfectly adequate. Personally, I'm impressed they made a card that can give honest strong card advantage, without also designing the 'new best card in Standard'.

This card is proof that Wizards actually does understand how to pull back on power creep, so when Magic is finally destroyed by power c... (see all)

I actually like it, first off, if you have 4 copies of something that is a mid-threat card, they will have to decide on what to do. if they let you draw, that is 4 cards less in your library and a bigger chance of still drawing that card anyway. think about infect here, this is a phyrexian card, so I search for any om my infect cards, of which there will be lots of, and you either let me put it in my hand or chance me drawing 3 other infect cards.... your choice.

I think everyone is looking at this wrong.

When hit by this you have a choice: Let your opponent have their card, or he restocks his hand.
And if that player is using control...

At no point does the card say you have to reveal the card you exile. So if you do it with a land card, you exile the land and and draw three, at least one of which statistically will be a land (at worst you will be three draw phases closer to your next land). Someone did this to me in a booster draft and it worked out well for him. This a great, fun, "Poker Face" card that I have seen used effectively a couple of times.

Hmmn... I can see some use if played in a deck with Archmage Ascension.. Forces your opponent into a lose-lose situation.
