Enchantment (R)

At the beginning of your upkeep, if you have 200 or more cards in your library, you win the game.
OHHHH MYYYYYY GOOOOOOOD I'M SO HAPPY!!!!!!

Best reprint in the set! Suddently Diabolic Revelation makes so much sense.
Oooh, neato. Can't wait to see the casual decks that people make with this.
LOL....OMG Mutilate.

How's that? What's Diabolic Revelation accomplishing alongside this card that Diabolic Tutor, Rune-Scarred Demon, or even Increasing Ambition don't?

Edit: OR are you just being sarcastic? lol

No I was serious. And those cards would also see play in a BOW deck, but Diabolic Revelation searches for multiple cards at once, meaning you can search for your win plus a couple of cards to protect it. Obviously the odds of a BOW deck being viable in standard are about 1:1000, but hypothetically if it happened, a resolved Revelation would almost always be GG in the deck.
Fun.
THIS CARD. THIS BLANKIN' CARD.

I'm going to include it in my deck any time I pull it in sealed...just to see my opponent's face when they try to figure out what the hell I think I'm doing.
Stupid. Just stupid.

Can't wait to open this and cry.

Snapcaster Mage is the best card of all time. How do you deal?

This is, in all seriousness, my favorite card ever. I hope I can get a hold of a copy just so I can finally make my crazy-ass Battle of Wits deck.
Yeeeeees.
Oh my god yes.

this is clearly foreshadowing a "200 or more cards in library" subtheme in RtR

This definitely doesn't mean what you think it means.
I was referring to the painting The Treachery of Images.
I know.
This card is so sweet, and is super powerful.  Will be sleeving this up on MODO quite a bit.
Excellence! I might play Standard just for the chance at the epicness winning an event with this entails.
My forum good deeds. Fortunately, left unpunished:

No.  Just no.  I hate this **** card.  Why couldn't they have printed something remotely useful, like...I don't know, Moonlace.  I'm kidding.  I hate that card too.  I can just imagine some NOOB bringing a BOW deck to FNM standard, and having to watch the guy shuffle it.

Tips to peeve your opponent 101:  Play a BOW deck, and play with as many search and shuffle effects as you can in your deck, all the zeniths, mycosycth wellspring, farseek, tutors, evolving wilds, etc.

And how are you getting this back when you mill it?
Why does this exist? Just...why? I have no desire to build...

I just...

Nevermind.

Noxious Revival and Reclaim, plus Snapcaster for those.
I have mixed feelings about this card. 


If you run a 240 card deck, if you draw a BoW in your opener, you win.

No really, you just win...




 
This is such a dumb reprint.
If you don't like this card, it's not for you.

If you're worried about long shuffle times, get mtgo

Wow...
I did not expect this kind of card to be reprinted.
I'm gonna win with this in Limited.  No one's going to see it coming until I cast it!
SO going to run this in Limited with 220 Islands...

Totally serious.  It's in the Mishra, Artificer Prodigy Commander deck.
I'm not going to be impressed until I see someone use Research.

For the record, this card is in no way confirmed. Some random guy in the Salvation Rumor Mill just rattled off a bunch of cards that would and wouldn't be in. (Mostly naming ones that we'd already elimated through he number crunch).  Urzassedatives has said he isn't taking these as confirmed yet so we really shouldn't.
