Instant
Target opponent reveals his or her hand. You choose a card from it and put that card into your hand.


The way I see it, improvement on Coercion.
One of the fundamental rules of Magic is that a card owned by another player can never enter your hand, graveyard, or library.


You can closely approximate it with "Choose a card from that player's hand and exile it.  You may play a card exiled by ~ for as long as it remains exiled."

Fiend of the Shadows does this, albeit as a combat-damage trigger.  Muse Vessel does this sort of thing.



Even as an instant, this usually won't counter to-hand tutoring anyway.  If your opponent plays Demonic Tutor, he won't look-for and get the card until the Tutor resolves.  After which is it once again his mainphase with his priority and stack-empty, and you won't be able to stop him from casting / playing the card that was tutored-for.

That frankly is a stupid rule that needs to be abolished.  You can have so much more fun designing cards without it.

And a practical rule given that different people use different sleeves for their cards.  Your card would be 'marked'.  What would happen if you then had to shuffle it into your deck?
