Psychic Possession

I don't even know what to say about this card. I keep waiting for someone to build a deck utilizing Psychic Possession. It's very odd. It's awkward in it's concept. And it's effect is really strange. As it is, there's no popular current strategy for this card, even though it feels like there should be. For now, it gets low marks across the board.

Constructed: 1.5
Casual: 1.5
Limited: 1.5

Psychic Posession

This reminds me of Recycle, an old card I never actually got to see in play. Cars that say, "skip your draw step" have a lot to live up to, but this one works fairly well. After all, you play it on your turn AFTER you draw. Then if your opponent destroys it on their turn, you've already drawn an extra card off it and never actually missed your own draw step. It also works well with cards like Skyscribing and Vision Skeins, since you each draw X cards and then you get to draw X MORE cards. Finally, it can be good anti-decking tech since it says you MAY draw a card.

Constructed- 3
Casual- 4
Limited- 4

Psychic Possession

Um...I was prepared to tell you this thing is crap. But apparently, someone is buying them from my Website, since I only have 32 in stock, and the price is higher than a bulk rare price. But I have to tell you that I have no idea what they are using it for. I asked some other M:TG players and they didn't know either. I haven't seen it in my circles. Maybe I haven't been circling enough. =/

Price check: $1.39

Constructed - 2
Casual - 2

The Antman

Psychic Possession- Rare- Dissension

The first enchant opponet card ever. Me and my friends were joking on that you should tape it to your opponets head (just dont try glue, your opponet might get mad).

Anyways this card just screams combo. Just draw 4 cards for 2 mana (at instant speed) with vision skeins, or have the opponet take the damage from cerebral vortex and have you still draw your 2 cards. I can see this card being a key card in a future block deck, or maybe a type 2 deck since this card can work very well with the 'wisdom' theme in saviors.

Ratings:
constructed- 3/5 no combo for it yet, but I see it coming eventually
limited- 2/5 unless you get some masive ammount of draw cards, all that this would do is delay your draws
casual- 5/5 a bunch of fun stuff you can do with this card here
