Target player discards a card.
Cipher (Then you may exile this spell card encoded on a creature you control. Whenever that creature deals combat damage to a player, its controller may cast a copy of the encoded card without payings its mana cost.)
so... mind rot maybe if you can connect? I would think T4 they wouldnt be holding onto too much, but i guess since almost everything is overcosted in the set it could be decent
Hey...it's another 4 mana cipher spell.  That's just grand.  Welp, Dimir isn't doing much for the first three turns, and will likely be playing behind the count all game.
Didn't they just reprint Mind Rot?
nope.
Yea, it did just get reprinted, with what looks like an orzhov dude

4 mana to make your creatures rakdos ringleader?

might as well wait for 2 more turns and play undercity plague 
I'm a big fan of Mind Rot in limited, and I'm not paying it on turn 3 anyways, so this makes me happy.

Moriok Rigger is not a Rigger in print. Only in Errata WHAT NOW! (yes, I did put that phrase in for that exact reason)
Congratulations, they have activated your trap card!
I can't wait for the cipher card that allows you to time walk for 13 mana...

I said it as a joke, but yes that would be funny
I feel like playing dimir is going to suck...

4 mana for rakdos ringleader
4 mana for curiosity
what next, 5 mana for a kill spell? =(

More like 4 mana for Raven's Crime here.  Ringleader has the decency to force random discard, which is a step up from letting your opponent choose what to lose.

Unthinkably bad...and a waste of an Uncommon slot.

Can be used with Invisible Stalker and the like...and little else.

Poor.  

I'm actually a fan of semi-casual ravenous rats/ duress decks....esp when hypnotic specter used to be in print.

But I don't care about recurring discard after their hand is empty.  And waiting for turn 4-5 (play or draw) assuming no missed lands means most players will only be holding 1-3 cards at most.

Just....way overcosted.  If opponent gets to pick, it should have been 3cc.  I think 2cc would probably be TOO powerful.  

Also, if your library is all the spells you know, and your hand is what you can think to cast at present....how does letting the victim pick what knowledge to lose make sense in any sort of flavorfull way?  It should always be presented as "knowledge ripped out of your mind", no?
