Great name, great art, great flavor text, and a pretty darn good ability too. It's an amazing card for combo decks (as long as you watch out for Flame Javelin!), and could even be played in the right kind of control decks. It's a little too expensive for everything else.

They really need to be more careful about printing that phrase "any number of times." This card came out dangerously close to a Yawgmoth's Bargain that's immune to Naturalize.

Constructed: This card found a home in Extended with storm decks. Standard and Block not that usefull.

 

Casual: It is up in the air right now. Not too many players around my area are not impress.

 

Limited: With all of the high casting bombs in Shards I would not use this card. The only card it could work with is Skill Borrower. It can create card advantage but, the life loss could be game for you.

 

Overall a great card for older sets. It's cost made it not broken.

 

Constructed: 2

Reveal the top card of your library and put that card into your hand. You lose life equal to its converted mana cost. You may repeat this process any number of times.
 
Everyone is going crazy about this card in Vintage. Fill your deck with 0 costs and tthen go crazy with storm. However in any format but Vintage this really starts to lose value. In limited and constructed your definatly going to be running higher cost cards and ths simply isnt worth it. In casual I guess you could throw together a Vintage type deck.
 
Constructed: 1.5/5, 3.5/5 in Vintage
Casual: 2.5/5
Limited: 1/5
