Stolen Goods -
Sorcery [Rare]
Target opponent exiles cards from the top of his or her library until they reveal a nonland card. Until end of turn, you may cast that card without paying it's mana cost.

Seems pretty cool, but I'm not sure how good it is. It would probably be amazing in EDH, but is it worth the risk of hitting a Gitaxian Probe, Mana Leak or Rampant Growth in Standard?
Yeh this is fun in EDH but unplayable in constructed imo.

SwDS: 1/5
I guess you might be able to hit a token or counter generator with this thing, but meh I'd rather rely on my own deck. I know some EDH decks that could find this fun. Still the chances of hitting anything useful as kinda slim...I'd rather use the four mana for something else. 

Stop the H4TE

Take away half+ of your Loam deck for 4 mana?  That's gotta be worth one sideboard slot in Legacy.

Commander is a constructed format.  I think you meant "unplayable in Standard."
interesting. very hit-or-miss but still might be cool.
I want a foil.

I wish this was an Instant to muck up top of library tutors :3

I dont know I'm seeing some kind of super-ramp u/g deck that could use this very well. I mean c'mon wouldn't it be awesome to play this hit there snapcaster, flashback this, and hit there hero or geist, all the while milling lets say 3 lands? Obviously a tiny bit of magic xmas land luck but still.

I do however think that the downside of hitting less then worthy cards, esp. counterspells, could knock it out of competitive play. The fact that its not an instant also hurts, but if we say it's in u/g ramp then Alchemist's Refuge? Could playing it in a ramp style deck also mean that some of the "less then worthy" cards may be better then normal?
  
For me it really boils down to 3 things; 1, I'm obsessed with pirates and this card is very very ARRGHHH!! 2, It's probably my favorite art of the set, and makes my top 10 of all time favs(the look on those 2 guys' faces is hilariously awesome). And 3, I just like how it plays. Even with the possibility of hitting something bad, your still stealing a card from them that they don't get to cast all the while milling lands for free, and the potential of it is enormous, even more so then most of the miracle card's potential, since this could possibly even hit miracles. Play goods, hit Temporal Mastery? Thank you for another turn to ramp, play, win? Yes please.

I'm both selfish and rational. I'm scheming, secretive and manipulative; I use knowledge as a tool for personal gain, and in turn obtaining more knowledge. At best, I am mysterious and stealthy; at worst, I am distrustful and opportunistic.

It could be for just 2 more and an Alchemist's Refuge!
Heck I would use this just to ruin some one's miracle, too bad it doesn't trigger those.
