For linking a card to Gatherer without writting the name of said card for readers, use the autocard brackets together with and equal sign and right the name of the real card. Then put the message you want inside the tags, like you would do with autocarding. Like this:
I like storm crow because I really like crows in real life, as an animal, and the card isn't terribly stupid, but packs a good deal of nostalgia and also a chunck of the game's history. So it's perhaps one of the cards I have most affection to, but not because "lol storm crow is bad hurr hurr durr".
Oh, it's a brilliant plan. You see, Bolas was travelling through shadowmoor, causing trouble, when he saw a Wickerbough Elder with its stylin' dead scarecrow hat. Now, Bolas being Bolas took the awesome hat and he put it on his head, but even with all his titanic powers of magic he couldn't make it fit. He grabbed some more scarecrows, but then a little kithkin girl asked if he was trying to build a toupee. "BY ALL THE POWERS IN THE MULTIVERSE!" he roared, "I WILL HAVE A HAT WORTHY OF MY GLORY." and so he went through his Dark Lore of Doom (tm) looking for something he could make into a hat that would look as stylish on him as a scarecrow does on a treefolk. He thought about the Phyrexians, but they were covered in goopy oil that would make his nonexistant hair greasy. He Tried out angels for a while but they didn't sit quite right. Then, he looked under "e" (because in the Elder Draconic alphabet, "e" for Eldrazi is right next to "h" for Hat) in his Dark Lore of Doom and saw depictions of the Eldrazi, and all their forms. "THIS SHALL BE MY HAT!" he declared, poking a picture of Emrakul, "AND WITH IT I WILL USHER IN A NEW AGE OF DARKNESS -- ER, I MEAN A NEW AGE OF FASHION!"
And so Nicol Bolas masterminded the release of the Eldrazi.
This card is great for Limited, too. Build-around-me cards like Furnace Celebration traditionally had the problem that the theme would get diluted as the block progressed and you couldn't build around it anymore. I see they fixed that here, by continuing the same build-around theme with a different, complementary effect. As an uncommon in a small set, it should be very draftable.

What this deck needs, while still staying in the budget part of the 'mission', is a full set of Delvers of Secrets. With a deck with so many cards that transform it, it is really a waste to not put this little 1-2 punch creature in.
Also, it is your gameplan vs Thrun in a very good way. You just win the race and force the opponent's deck to play on the defensive. And once you get into rare using territory. Our friendly neighbourhood Snappie of course fills the gap of the few non-flashback and expensive flashback cards.
Agree with above posters though. Great to see another flashback-using enchantment. I was just building a fun Burning Vengeance deck for this week's FNM again, and this card is sorely missed now I know it will be released in DA!
I know this column was supposed to be about revealing one card, but Faithless Looting has already been revealed and confirmed in the card image gallery. It was silly not to go ahead and include it. I would easily cut some combination of Think Twice, Desperate Ravings, and Forbidden Alchemy to include FL as a four of. It helps you find your combo pieces, or get rid of them if you already have too many in hand, plus it fills your graveyard with the fodder you'll need later on.
Another uncommon for this deck could be: Altar of the Lost, it replaces the grottos and it makes it a lot easier to cast any flashback. On the rare note: devils play is not expansive and fits the deck. Cackling Counterpart could work against fatties, but its rare and it still cant deal with the Troll.
