Exile the top three cards of your library into a facedown pile, then exile the top three cards of your library into another facedown pile. Look at the cards in each pile, then turn a pile of your choice face up. an opponent chooses one of those piles. Put that pile into your hand and the other into your graveyard. You lose 3 life.
The last rare of the set is a Steam Augury variant you can't control what cards go in each pile, but you can control which pile your opponent sees. Let's be honest, though—you're in black, putting three in your graveyard basically means draw 6.
Ancient Cravings at instant speed that can potentially punish you. I know that some players live for the mind games but this doesn’t sound too useful unless you are VERY confident that you can make it go your way.
Huh, a more fun variant I guess, but still never the best to let an opponent choose.
Depending on the deck I could see it not mattering. If you can position it in a way such that is a pseudo-Intuition/pseudo-Gifts Ungiven it might not be a big deal. Sure it doesn't tutor, but if I'm playing reanimator, or with cards like Bloodghast/Tenacious Underdog, or even with unearth spells, either way it might work out to be more like drawing 3.5 - 4 cards depending on my graveyard utilization.
It's definitely three cards in your hand at instant speed for four mana. It's technically worse than straight up drawing three cards, but the effective milling of three more cards should make up for that in a lot of decks that should consider playing this.

Planar Chaos was not a mistake neither was it random. You might want to look at it again.
