Do the cards you put into your hand count as drawing a card? For example, do they put counters on Lorescale Coatl?

I guess "put into your hand" isn't the same as "draw", just as puting a card onto the battlefield isn't the same as playing it. And since the card says instead, it probably dosn't count as drawing.

You can still get counterspells like Mystic Snake.

Along with the aformentioned Animar(similar names, hint hint), this guy goes really well with things like Soul of the Harvest or Primordial Sage. Play a creature, draw more creatures, play those creatures, continue. I've dug through about 15-21 cards in a turn.

Ultimate Johnny Insanity: this + Aluren + Glimpse of Nature.

I play it with Armored Skaab, Snapcaster Mage, and a Laboratory Maniac somewhere in your library.

This is probably the sickest card in my Momir Vig deck. Plays well with Sylvan Library and very well with Abundance. (You choose which of the three replacement effects to use: do you want a land card, a nonland card, or up to three creatures?)

If you don't run this with Abundance or sacrifice outlets, remember to stock plenty of landfetch creatures (Sakura-Tribe Elder, Fertilid, Coiling Oracle, etc). Otherwise you'll stall out at five lands.

just splash blue in to a elf deck and some Elvish Harbingers elf ramp is on. add Elvish Promenade with another Harbinger or go for Lys Alana HuntMaster to token up for Immaculate Magistrate or Wellwisher

this card makes me sad. I run a simic elf edh deck with edric or momir as my general. this card just has sooo much potential. the 2 simple changes that would make this card playable would be, saying "If you would draw a card, instead you MAY reveal... otherwise draw your card" and the second things is, i honestly think this should be a 4 or 5 card filter reveal. even in a 60 card deck, assuming you are running from 30%-40% mana (18-24 land cards). And assuming that of the remaining 36-42 cards, you are running primarly creature cards, it still seems as though the chance of hitting a land or one of ur few non creature cards isnt worth the restraint of only 3 cards filter. let alone in an commander deck....

in summation, someday, i hope to see a 4-6 cmc u/g elf with a reworded version of this cards ability. its a great concept, the sages just dont deliver.

also, the artwork is soooo awesome, it makes how lack-luster the card is all that much more painful...
