So...apparently my friends have this card ALWAYS present on the battlefield at ALL times cuz they do this, and they aren't even aware of this card's existence.

Interestingly, on Magic Online, this works like any other card that has Play with the top card of your library revealed, in that your card is always revealed (but only to you). This makes it so that you can't repeatedly put this on the stack just to check the top card of your library (like you can with Sensei's Divining Top, mana restrictions applying of course). I suppose the You may do this at any time clause is still present though, because you can always minimize the revealed card window.

Is it useful? It's a 5/5 with flying and shroud for only 6 mana, so it's pretty useful. Granted there are a lot of other creatures out there that are 6 mana and walk circles around this guy, but this is just a cool card, and I love playing it.

I am looking at the top card of my library right now.
Note that it says any time - so when someone casts a spell in one of my EDH games, I look at the top card of my library. They all say "does it resolve?" and I say "I'M STILL LOOKING" And I stare at it for another few minutes.

This is my favorite creature in Magic in terms of art, flavor, and mechanics. It's just so solid, one of the best finishers in blue.

I like to pair mine up with Conundrum Sphinxes and gain super-steady card advantage.
