Was I the only one reading "mothership spoilers ending" and thinking like "Wtf, already?!"
Very, very cool overall. Future Sight is a nice addition of the modern cardpoll but since we've already got the Magus of the Future legal, it would had be cooler to have another Magus having an ability of a card of a very cool effect that would lead to interesting combo applications (Mind Over Matter for example).
The Endling is a bit underwhelming (Undying is nice, but works only one time) while the red cascade spell is simply...wow. It's exactly the kind of stuff I love to do and to repeeat all over.
Yeah, it'll usually be worth it to draw+cast a 'random' <4cmc creature rather than keep a redundant topdecked land. Arcane Encyclopedia was a *good* limited card. That cost 3 mana to draw a 'random' card off the top of your deck, and you still had to pay more mana if you wanted to actually cast it (or it could just be another damned land). This costs 4 mana (and a redundant land) to dig til the next <4cmc spell (skips past land - always hitting some gas), and freecasts it.
You get this card in limited, you run with it. You just avoid doing so in a deck with reactive cards like countermagic or combat tricks.
Restore Balance would like to have a word with you.
Yep, my restore balance just keeps on getting goodies in this set and a few recent sets. This may be the straw that breaks the camel back. Repeat balance is just back-breaking. Might even make running quicken for the LOL worthwhile. I'll try to up my balance count to 4 and run faithless looting.
Yes... more -lings. More -lings for Mairsil. Good...
Lord of the Lings?
One Ling to rule them all, and in the darkness bind them.

MTGS Wikia Article about "New World Order"
Every time I read a comment about "Well if this card had card draw/trample/haste/indestructible/hexproof/life gain...", I think "You're missing the point." They're armchair developer comments that fail to take into account the card's role in the greater Limited and Standard environment. No, it may not be as good as whatever card you're comparing it to. There's a reason for that. Not every burn spell is Lightning Bolt, nor does it need to be or should be.
PSA to everyone who keeps forgetting about the Reserved List:
You're on a website dedicated to talking about MtG. You're only a few keystrokes away from finding out what cards are on the Reserved List. You're also only a few keystrokes away from finding out why some cards on the Reserved List got foil printings in FtV, as Judge promos, or whatnot, as well as why that won't happen again. Stop doing this.
