I could definitely see this making its way into sideboard against dredge and reanimator, and just straight up for the recursion in Legacy and Standard.

One you get enough cards in your graveyard, this is essentially Vampiric Tutor with a Lotus Petal tacked on.

You do realize that what you just said would be better than regrowth... Which is already an obscenely powerful card... That would be unfun, unfair, and banned. Very, very banned. I truly hope that was sarcasm.

Use {(g/p)} to counter {(b/p)}.

Nice and versatile. 4/5

This card is soooo amazing.

In the late game, you can cast it on a crappy card in an opponents Graveyard so that they have a dead draw.

You can also use it as a counterspell against Reanimation decks. Just target the creature they're targeting with the reanimation effect. This will resolve first and there will be no legal target for the spell they just cast.

Have I mentioned that you can cast it no matter what color your deck is? and that you can cast it even if you're tapped out?

Hell, I've even thought about running this in my mill deck just in case my opponent has a Surgical Extraction or a Tormod's Crypt. I could cast it to save my Emrakul, the Aeons Torn so I don't mill myself. Thankfully I don't run into many people who can deal with Emrakul's GY recovery, so I haven't had a need to use it this way... yet.

All of these bonuses are just gravy on top of the actual reclaim effect that you can use for your own spells... (see all)

The "Put target card on top of that players library" is a very underrated way of slowing the game down and giving you some time to find a means to win.

Most people play things and don't expect to have to play it again. It's why Remand is more popular than Mana Leak: Although it goes back to their hand, they spent the mana, and now you know what they're going to play. Not only that, but there's no way to get around it. (Although I think people like the cantrip more).

So things like this can be a lot more trickier than you think. Obviously, they'd like to get their own stuff back. But that's why you have to think about what you're going to return to their deck.

If you have a creature out, returning a piece of removal may not be wise. If you can stop it or have just killed it, returning a weak creature may also be a good idea.

Be smart with it. If you use it wisely, you can have a game in the palm of your hands.

Srsly, wat.

So... ANY colour... can get back ANY card... in exchange for skipping their draw step, effectively. For 2 life and no other cost (and you can use REAL mana if you have green!)

Alternatively, wreck someone's draw. Or help an ally out.

I'm starting to realise why people were so keen about this set. I never saw the potential aside from the few obviously mental rares, and often drew naff stuff, but there's so much more I didn't pick up on...

For the low low cost of 8 life you too, can have eight Lightning Bolts.

Anything with card advantage is worth repeating; and this, in a long game, is effectively a tutor.

Gotta be careful with a card like this; it's card disadvantage for quality. Exceptional with Miracle costs, especially if you are tossing things in the graeyard with looter effects
