But... if they DID exist, not that they do, but if the did... they might look something like this...
Seems like a possible sleeper hit. No one is really championing this card yet, but I can see it being quite good if given a chance.
Probably not good enough in most situations, but it's a subtle aspect of the design that might get overlooked.
Sooner or later, a full-blown Mill archetype will actually be viable, with enough cards like this bug.
I've experimented with a number of decks that make it a point not to go this route, and more or less top off at CMC 4. I'm not sure U/B is a color pair that wants to go this way, but it would be cool to see a Dimir deck that runs a super-low mana curve, and plays this guy to punish all those decks whose mana curves seem to start at 5 and go up from there.
On the flip side, I think he's moderately playable even if you aren't out to just one-shot someone. Most decks would be better off with Blood Artist or similar, but a lot of Wrexial decks, for starters, would rather have this guy.
I might be overselling him a bit, but I think he's solid.
This is definitely a powerful mill spell, and will likely see play in any deck that wants to see their opponent's graveyards well-stocked.
You know me. You know how much I love Wrexial. No other U/B Legend has ever made me even question my loyalty to the Risen Deep.
There's a decent chance, this time next month, I'll be playing a Lazav deck instead. He's that good. But, even if I keep Wrexial as general, Lazav will definitely be in the 99.
