This card won't kill you instantly; it kills you after you use it. By which time Laboratory Maniac wins you the game. All you need to do is draw all of the cards in your deck. Maybe get in some Ponder's, Brainstorm, Dark Ritual and the like, some tutors, and maybe even Whispering Madness. Mill yourself with Glimpse the Unthinkable or Jace, and get in Reanimate and the like. Those two cards are all you need; you could even have them as buffers in normal BlackBlue decks, but I think it would better if everything else was the buffer for them. Nowadays, Crypt Ghast and Realmwright will make the decks even better. You don't even need to worry about creatures! Or your opponent at all!

Guys just use Phyrexian Unlife with this, life loss is not the same as damage. :)

Incredible card/hand advantage! Easy to ramp out in mono black and draws into more card advantage! 5/5

I'd prefer Necrologia, as I tend to have very high mana cost spells in my deck... but this card still has it's uses.

For most Storm players in Legacy, this is one of three core enablers. You basically have three possible strategies:

Ad Nauseam
Doomsday + Meditate/Ideas Unbound
Ill-Gotten Gains + Intuition

One and only one of those strategies avoids a need for Blue.

Ooooh, part of me really wishes they named this Ad Mortem.

This card is a 5/5, why? The design is (IMHO) perfect, {3BB} at instant speed is the perfect costing for this effect, to abuse it you have to build your deck around it. It's like a fixed yawgmoth's bargain with enough randomness to be fair but still very playable. Seriously, this card is perfect.
