This is the worst mythic ever, going by the rating.

I am not a fan of this at all. It's way too expensive, and white is not really a mill-yourself color. There are much better things to play turn 8 than this

Terrible life gain, in no way deserves the mana cost or to take up a Mythic slot.

Please remember: They had another card slotted for this, artwork was commisioned, name was made, etc - and they couldn't make it work. They needed something new at the last second, and, given the history of last second changes (See: batterskull, Umezawa's jitte as examples of last minute change mistakes), they decided to make it weak, as to not break the game.

I wouldn't use this card in any deck if it costed one White. I genuinely wouldn't.

When designing cards' casting costs, I always like to imagine R&D going through a process where they start by costing the card at 1 mana, then increase the cost by one mana each time (or by phasing into multicolor), stopping when it's no longer broken.

I don't understand what R&D team could have looked at a 4W version of this card and said "no, that's way too strong. It's gotta cost at least 3 more mana."

Maybe Mirror-Mad Phantasm or Phantasmal Image copying it to mill yourself almost to death, and then Archangel's Light for massive 50-70 point life gain into Chalice of Death? Maybe? Pod your way to the Phantasm? Anyone? No?

Seems expensive. But gaining 40-80 life? Is it worth trying out?

And this is a Mythic because...? It could have been misprinted as a rare and no one would've noticed.
And I don't like it very much. At 8 mana I'd expect to be casting a spell that tore my opponents' limbs off, not restored my life and library to their original sizes. But, then again, I'm not much of a control player.

Reduce it to 3White and this card would be rated at least one star higher, maybe even two.
It would still never see play

For Wizards R&D future reference: We're in a graveyard set, I WANT cards in my graveyard, not in my library. I logged into my account JUST so I could rate this card down.

Here's a hint: Make this EXILE the OPPONENT'S graveyard and keep the lifegain effect. And make it 1 life per card and reduce the cost to 5.

Now we have a flavorful, playable card that isn't the worst draft pull of all time.

Even then, shouldn't be MYTHIC RARE ffs. How is this anywhere comparable to stuff like Huntmaster, Haveghul Lich, or even Helvault? As is (or my suggested version) should be at uncommon.
