Epic Experiment - Return to Ravnica Spoiler

Epic Experiment



Exile the top X cards of your library. For each instant or sorcery with converted mana cost X or less among them, you may cast that card without paying its mana cost. Then put all cards exiled this way that weren’t cast into your graveyard.

    well it seems like every guild will have a mythic like this. 

    • Wisdomseyes

      I think you are correct. 

      And… I am so far unimpressed by the ones spoiled. 

    • rev_Shad

       Rakdos’s Return and this i wanna see the other 3 mainly Selesnya’s

      • Heitor

        Selesnya mythic = tons of tokens!

    • Ricky MacLeod

       the two we have seam unrelated to the guild keyword so i’m thinking none will be
      so probably:
      Selesnya will be a overrun
      Golgari will be some kind of kill spell
      Azorius will be some kind of defense either bouncing or exiling

  • rev_Shad

    such power but the great downside is things like overload can’t be used

  • Tripbolt17

    i want this so badly…so. damn. epic!!

    • Tripbolt17

      combos very nicely with guttersnipe

  • Wisdomseyes

    Oh look… its a Genisis Wave… for RU…

    this will probably see a similar amount of play to Genisis wave… 

  • Mlundgoldstein

    it’s Izzet colored Genisis Wave but will see more play because of guttersnipe

  • indes

    Index plus this is fairly nasty.

    Too much mana so that maybe you can cast 2 or 3 spells, don’t think it’ll do much

    • Justin Messmer

       I would run this in my Pyro ascension deck aiming for X=3. With some deck manipulation (which an ascension deck will have) rolling into something like 2x lightning bolt + Slagstorm is pretty devasting. Pretty much anything I could roll into in that deck would be good. Even if I rolled a 2x Desperate Ravings and Faithless Looting that would be a pretty powerful effect for 5 mana and set me up for more draw from the graveyard.

  • Flickerfan

    say X=2, can you play Mizzium Mortars for its overload? its CMC is still 2 right?

    • Ricky MacLeod

      i’m thinking not because you generally can’t use alternate values with cards like this.
      if you can use alternate values you would need to have an X high enough to cover the alternate cost

    if i reveal another epic experiment with an epic experiment, i can pay the “x” price with my mana on the pool?

    • Flickerfan

      the way it usually works with “X costs” is that if you don’t pay the mana cost, you must choose 0 as the value of X

        thx, dawg!

    I definitely foresee some legacy storm decks trying this. It may or may not go well, but the deck that will make the most potential of it is High Tide. The only issue i see is that red mana. That can EASILY be achieved though (Spirit Guide, Chromatic Sphere/Star/Barbed Sextant, Prismatic Lens, Volcanic Island [which when tapped for red still adds blue from high tides]), and is completely nuts when you cast it with X=20

    Pyromancer Ascension anyone?

  • Aided

    What the snap, crackle, POP is going on here?!! This reminds me of miracle, but this is an epic GIANT miracle yay! (not really)

  • Firestorm75

    Pyroconvergence + Gutterspine + Epic Experiment + lots of unused mana = game
