@stormanimagus I mean if you're gonna preemptively maindeck storm hate cards and laugh at their deck when you encounter them, that's your prerogative. I don't know how you'd consistently deal with xerox decks and other fair blue decks (which I'd guess you hate also) with that approach. Not every Storm pilot would want to warp their deck to deal with a fringe hatebear deck so I suggested a possible solution that, although not even close to being perfect, is simple and in line with their main game plan. And I know that hatebear pilots would just love for storm pilots to try and bounce every lock piece of theirs, since this distracts the storm pilots from their plan.

@craw_advantage I think it would be better than most of the other non-committal ways to deal with hatebear decks that play 4 copies of this and 4 copies of Containment Priest. We also have discard and bounce. I think if I cared very much about losing to such decks, I would play other color combinations like WUB, which allow the use of Mentor, Balance and Teferi. I would still avoid using spot removal that doesn't help us carry out our main plan though.

Tinker blightsteel is an option for DPS. A hatebear deck that runs multiples of this card would tend to be less threatening than the usual hatebear decks.

It would allow you to cast the card before a Snapcaster enters the battlefield, for example.

Art looks good compared to a lot of the modern cards. I like the abilities, but the card would've been really interesting with flash.

I would guess this card would be best with Lavinia, Teferi, and Narset, as usual.

It's too bad that combo decks that are a little more complex feel underpowered thanks to cards printed in the past few years. Decisions have become very streamlined with combo decks, often with very few lines of play, and variations of play that don't matter.

We all know there's someone in R&D who plays Death & Taxes and designs these heinous cards, but this card takes it too far.

A lot of people here are talking about the ceiling of this card, and what they might do in the better situations where this card is an option. I think I wouldn't want to see this card very often in most decks. 1B + 1 mana that gets affected by artifact removal, Null Rod, Ouphe, etc., and gives a Demonic Tutor (at instant speed during one's turn) for 1 colorless mana to your opponent the turn after you activate it is not a valuable topdeck unless you have a great hand and/or board. Usually I want to have a card that is good when the game isn't going well for me, and good when the game is going well for me. I think the card is cool, but I don't imagine it would be as great as some seem to make it out to be. I would prefer to be wrong here.

The real big brain play is getting Energy Flux with this.
