There's no way this is an orc.
Looks and acts like a gremlin.

Unless there is a card that gains ability by being exiled, I don't see how one would be able to use this.
Random discard abilities can be used with madness, flashback, or unearth . . but randomly exiling cards from your deck may remove critical cards.

This card sucks so bad, what the hell do you mean "astonishing." You can only hit yourself! Just use scry jesus haha. I like Goblin Lore MUCH better.

What the hell is this? Seriously, what the hell!? This card just seems to scream "Well, my deck sucks, so I'm just going to increase the likelihood I'll draw Mountain over any other crappy card in my deck."

I'd rather play Mons's Goblin Raiders. Raging Goblin would be cool too. But I guess Goblin Guide would just be ok.

The random exiling on this card is NOT irrelevant, because you can use the card repeatedly in consecutive turns or even have more than one in play at the same time.

So if you use your first librarian and the 4 cards you get are garbage no matter the order in which you arrange them, just use your second one and there's a good chance that some of those bad cards will be exiled.

Same thing applies if you have only 1 librarian in play, when you decide whether to use him or not the next turn you' ll know the top 3 cards of your deck already, and how much you want them exiled.

If 2 of the 4 cards you got were good, put them on top and don't use his ability for the next 2 turns.

Simply keep putting the good cards on top and the bad cards on bottom, and it's easy to see that the bad cards have a higher chance of getting exiled.

This week on "Cards I Can't Believe Aren't Un-cards"

Yeah, pretty sure this should be rated higher. The thing is, get milled does nothing until it kills you, which this can do if you get carried away and the game goes long, but exiling anonymous cards does nothing, so all this really does is let you rearrange your draws for R. It's pretty good.

The exiling effect is actually an advantage (as long as you don't overuse it and deck yourself), since you can put the most useful of the next four cards on top, then use him after you draw them and have a decent chance of exiling stuff you don't need (if you don't exile it, put it on the bottom again and keep using it until you do.) Unlike, say, Mirri's Guile or Sensei's Divining Top, which forces you to draw the bad cards eventually, this card combines stacking to get good cards with a way to remove bad or unwanted ones entirely.

That said, I'd still rather use Sensei's Divining Top compared to this. It's cheaper, it's harder to destroy, and its ability to flip with your top card is far more valuable.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
