    Well this is very good. I’m always up for blue ramp. I like this both on the field and to cycle.

  • Shawn Michael Diaz

    Could always use another cycle for 1 card and it’s good ramp!

    • Shawn Michael Diaz

      Just realized this is very Fate Stitcher!

  • Shawn Michael Diaz

    Simic ramp has some legitimate cards. What bombs are we gonna get to make it a deck? Or are we just supposed to use the Titans still?

    • Solomon Somers

      Check out the old lists for GU Crush of Tentacles. You can play a Titan or two, plus Part the Waterveil. Maybe a one-of Garden of Murasa. (I’ve been thinking about building this deck, btw). I’m probably going to be playing some number of Permeating Mass to eat aggro and Sylvan Advocate for value, too

      • Shawn Michael Diaz

        It was Nissa. I’m building this deck and I’ll definitely take those lists into account, thanks.

  • Jacob Kodicovic

    Good with Exert. Sadly, we won’t be seeing many of those in blue.

  • chad

    in standard there is an infinite combo 3 drop permanent spells, oracle’s vault with paradox engine and visier of tumbling sands. = play all permanents. its a three card combo but it works

    • kevin

      daaaaammnnn thats a nice combo, but takes some time to activate.
      Tho its 2 artifacts so your not bound to a lot of colors.

    • Jonathan Reynolds

      I don’t think you will be able to play all permanents because Oracle’s Vault doesn’t appear to override the ‘one land per turn’ rule. It will allow you to play one land from your deck, but after that this gets stopped by hitting land. That is, unless you can play a spell from your hand to untap everything and spin again.

      • Daniel Kaine Allen

        I think that’s the point of the vizier. Lets you get two cards off instead of one. Won’t get you to the bottom of the deck, but it could still net you a lot of stuff.

    • kmk888

      Not technically infinite, as Jonathan mentioned hitting a land twice will cause it to fizzle unless you can play a spell from your hand. It is very close to infinite though and a good start to a combo deck.

      • chad

        Yes you could whiff on a land, but you could either play a spell, or untap Oracle’s vault with the Visier to try again and in standard all you have to do is out pace your opponent. Wish it was infinite

  • Jacob Kodicovic

    Is she holding a Perpetual Timepiece? Conspiracy time: Amonkhet is the prologue to Kaladesh

    • Kahai

      Tezzeret stole artifacts after all. XD

  • KrakenHunter

    Decent with exert and the new artifacts

  • Minizem

    Probably one of the best uncommons I’ve seen in the set so far.

  • Jonathan Reynolds

    Alright, here is the bad, janky combo. First you play two Viziers. Give control of one Vizier to your opponent for a turn. Enchant it with Betrayal while they have it. When you get it back, use them to draw your deck! Then… Laboratory Maniac?

    • Nadorou

      Just the right amount of crazy for Zedruu.

  • Derek Niles

    It gives infinite EtB with Kiki Jiki but not automatic win because the copies all have to tap to make more copies

  • Kameenook

    Legacy High Tide ? When you’re going off the cycle is free, and if you’ve cast multiple high rides it nets you mana.

  • kmk888

    3 mana is a lot, but this effect is priceless. Cycling it with exert creatures also seems great if that deck plays blue

  • Shagoth

    I spoke too soon about the black one, this is the best card in its cycle.
    White < Green < Red < Black < Blue, just like the good old days. Funnily enough this one is great as a card but has the worst cycle effect in the cycle.

    • Lord Gonti Of The Orzov Networ

      What cycle

      • Hedronal

        Monocolor uncommons that have an effect, have cycling, and do a limited version of that effect when cycled.

        • Lord Gonti Of The Orzov Networ

          Ohhh, Thnx

        • Daniel Kaine Allen

          So should we call it theeee…….. ReCycle?

  • Alex Churchill

    The artwork and flavour text look like it’s the Prince of Persia from Sands of Time :)

  • kmk888

    The most important aspect of this card is that it generates mana with New Perspectives.

  • Patrick

    This card was nuts in my pool for prerelease. Used it to ramp out glyph seeker and glorybringer, Used it to deal with my opponents glyph seekers.
