The mana cost (both cast and flashback) and sorcery speed hurts this card, but one could never deny the power of fetching any card you want from the deck. EDH potential = HIGH.

The benefits of this card are pretty self-explanatory: regardless of mana cost, you're exchanging one card for three tutored cards. Other benefits though include that its flashback is quite useful if you're being milled or it gets countered the first time around. It should also be noted that although it costs more than Diabolic Tutor, it at least costs 1 less black mana, which can be important in a multi-colored deck that is getting unlucky with land draws and mana fixing cards.

People seem to like this in EDH, which fine, but I also think it has a place as a 1-2 of in Block and Standard. The obvious inclusion is in combo-control sort of decks, i.e. decks with control elements but combo win conditions. When you cast it the first time you get a strong defensive spell, like Blasphemous Act, or whatever you need, which is very powerful. When you hit 8 mana (which this sort of deck will) you get to find BOTH combo pieces. It kinda reminds me of Tooth and Nail, because of the role it fills, although there are obvious differences between the two.

Put it in my Glissa, The Traitor EDH, used its flashback tutors to get Riftsweeper and Demonic Collusion, then went and found it again, it's SO perfect for EDH :D

I can't think of any black EDH deck that wouldn't want this card.

Dammit I hate when people use tutors in EDH. It takes all the fun out of it.
@jesstifer Since you cast the flashback card before the Feldon's Cane activation (at least that's what I think you meant), the flashback is already on the stack by the time the Cane ability resolves, so the flashback card resolves right after you shuffle your graveyard back in.
