Quote from Radjammin »Um not really, I just would own you giveing you all land and junk. That's like playing Dullusions and tring to pay the cumlative upkeep. Or you could just start shuffling and shake the winners hand...?
Quote from aurorasparrow »Sauoro: giving your opponent options is bad always. For example, hymn to tourach is always better than skullscorch because the only time the opponent would take 4 would be when it was a better option than discarding two cards randomly. Giving your opponent the option to Zur's Wierding you for free is suicidal.
At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player reveals the top card of his library and must pay life equal to the card's converted casting cost and put it in his hand.

Quote from Maro »
Bob Maher's Card
Last May, Bob Maher (nicknamed “The Great One”) won the 8th Annual Magic Invitational and earned the right to make a Magic card. He submitted a 2/1 creature for BB with the ability "During each upkeep you reveal the top card of your library and must pay life equal to the card's converted casting cost and put it in your hand."
I can't give away the rules text today, but I can say that it is almost exactly the same with only one small change (which improves the card). I do know the card's been showing up in the FFL League (the league the developers play that's a year ahead). I also cannot show you the art because we're planning to premiere it during this year's Invitational. So what can I say? The card is going to be a black rare in Ravnica. It will be called Dark Confidant and has the flavor text “Greatness, at any cost.”
Quote from SnoopDoggAtog »I think the altered rules text includes adding the word "may" between "you..." and "reveal".
Quote from Moss_Elemental »I hope so. Otherwise, I wouldn't put that in a deck with Draco, or some other expensive cards.
Quote from Landstalker »Shame all invitational players are unattracted males so we know the art is going to be. I don't see how suicide black is going to do anything but I guess we'll see.
Quote from Alex »Lets look at this situation.
Phex. Arena: Must Draw a card at upkeep, Lose 1 life.
Necropotence: May Draw a card at end of turn, Lose 1 life.
Yawg. Bargin: May Draw a card, Lose 1 life.
Invitational Card: Must Draw a card at draw phase, Lose 0-13 life.
They need to make it a LOT better for it to be playable.
