Mindmoil - Ravnica: City of Guilds. Rare
4R: Enchantment
Whenever you play a spell, put the cards in your hand on the bottom of your library in any order, then draw that many cards.
My criticism of the Izzet is that their impulse for learning seems too much like impulse and too little like learning.

1 dollar rare. That should be enough said? Want me to go into detail?

a 5 drop enchantment for Red. Want to exchange cards with the top cards of your library? You have to play a spell. Then, what if you had a bomb card in there already?

The only pro I see in this card is vs discard and you have a bomb card.
"I play Blackmail!"
"In response, I play shock. Then I draw cards."

Yeah, it still sucks.

The only use I see for this card is some kind of combo. 2/5

combo much?

Niv-Mizzet + this = woot.

Also, it's like Teferi's Puzzle box. But more random. And Teferi's is a nice card because it can help you get the answers you need to the threats across the board. And so does this.

Havn't checked spoilers lately.

And even so, I'd have to say Teferi's Box is better.

1) less mana
2) effects your opponents hand, which would cause him/her to his spells fast or risk the chance of not being able to play them again.
3) doesn't require you to play spells to work
4) it's an artifact.

Sure this only affects you, but I'd have to say in some ways, it's stronger than the puzzle box. Besides its comboness with Niv-Mizzet, this can also be triggered multiple times a turn. That's something the puzzlebox can't do and why I think this has an advantage over it. This allows you to sift through your entire deck in one turn just to find that one card you need.

If this had the same type of trigger that the Puzzlebox had, it just wouldn't be as good. Still though, it isn't necessarily costed aggressively, but it's still worth the cost.
