I'm... not that impressed actually. Sure, its a powerful ability, but lets break it down.
Its only truly powerful if you draw in in your opening hand. And from what I recall from running the math, there is only a 40% chance of drawing a particluar card in your opening seven if you have a full playset. But notice you have to have a playset. That means that you will have three dead cards in your deck once its out. You can have less than 4 copies of it in your deck to mitigate this danger, but then you chance of drawing it goes down. Its a catch 22.
Say you have to hard cast it. It comes down turn 4 and has zero impact on the game initially. Doesnt draw you a card. Doesnt zap a creature. Cant defend. It just sits there while you get punched in the face by a Bloodbraid Elf, Sprouting Thrinax and leech.
Yep, its a good card, but in my opinion it is gonna be one of the super hyped previews that just kinda fizzles out. A la Mindbreak Trap, etc.
