Jori En, Ruin Diver
 
I remember Second Guess from Avacyn Restored, and the sorts of faces people made when they noticed its curious, and curiously specific, wording. I never would have guessed that there was much design space around counting the number of spells (and I have a feeling Mark Rosewater will claim that there isn't as much as there looks, because he always does), but I really like the surge mechanic, and I'm more eager than I expected to play with Jori En here. She opens up interesting possibilities in deck construction - as though cheap cantrips like Peek and cost-reducing mechanics like Disrupting Shoal needed any more help - and is undoubtedly going to fuel a lot of spell-based decks in casual and Commander settings for years to come. Remember that rebound is a keyword in both of her colors . . .

Here's something for the U/R players, bless their hearts. it fuels the constant burning through of one's hand that U/R suffers from, but can easily backfire from what you draw. again, legend rule hurts this one a bit.
