    Throes of Chaos, albeit really interesting, seems to be as bad as it can get... lol

    I mean..... 4 mana for a random effect that's worth 3 mana or less doesn't seem to be even close to a good deal, even if it's repeatable.

    It's obviously not meant to be cast from hand. Once you ditch it, lands aren't dead draws anymore.
    lands you don't need become a random effect up to CMC3 for 4 mana....
    alright, better than a land you don't need.

    worse than pretty much anything else.

    If I open a Crashing Footfalls in limited, I'll certainly grab up this card. RG is the color of lands-in-grave-matters in this set, after all.


    issue being.... a deck forcing that to be hit with cascade will have to cost entirely above 4, which will certainly be your doom if you try that in limited.

    that said, this card will almost never hit this card, and you'll be spending 4 mana and the land you drew each turn in a random below 4 CMC effect... which is really, really bad.

    this is certainly no card for limited.

    lol, I love how this mostly says:

    1G
    Instant
    Target players who just played Grapeshot or Tendrils of Agony scoops.

    meh......

    at least they didn't waste a name as great as Sword of Death and Chaos in a subpar sword (for this cycle anyway)... lol

    I mean, the card is not bad, but I'm surely not expecting anything super situational and narrow for this cycle.

    lol, this is as bad as it gets.....

    if you get this AND don`t miss your first 3 land drops, than it did better than a land.
    else, if you'd just draw a land, you'd be better of.

    this is a crazy good common you'll most likely NEVER see beyond 4th pick or something in your drafts.

    damn good card.

    the block structure is mostly over.
    consecutive sets tend to be mechanically tied somehow, but the stories are not fixed to 3 sets in a block anymore, WotC basically does anything they like right now with the story.
    war of the spark follows up the story from Ravnica and ends it.

    Modern Horizons is a non standard legal set which is meant to add new cards to the modern pool without adding anything to standard.

    About your rules question....
    combat damage does not use the stack anymore, it's resolved right away as a single object.
    so, you can't stack the damage and sacrifice the dude. whenever you would "stack the damage" it will actually be dealt right away.

    rules come and go, I don't think anything with that importance changed in the last 9 years, but you'll have some catching up to do.

    So you have to cast four instant or sorcery spells before it starts working.
    This IS the dead Limited rare if I've ever seen one.

    well, yeah.
    but when you cast the 8th, it basically wins the game by itself.

    it's just a crapton damage.

    still, not sure how powerful this thing actually is.
    I'd be all in for it if it could hit creatures.

    HOLY CRAP.
    this card is REALLY powerful.

    4 mana in a deck that will certainly run a ton of artifacts, it'll be very likely a 1/4 alongside a 4/4 or something like that quite easily.

    generates a ton of mana, uses such mana for drawing and casting cards at will.....
    I mean, that 5 casting cost abilty doesn't even have to tap!

    if you can generate a ton of mana in a deck running this dude, he'll simply cast your entire deck right away.

    The closest parallel to this card ever printed is certainly Remand

    card is good, but Remand is still the better one, IMO

    so.... what happens with damage dealt after the dude I redirected the damage to dies?

    I mean, if someone attacks me with a 3/3 double striker.
    I let it through and cast this pointing to a 1/1.

    what happens with the second damage part from the double striker?
    is the damage dealt normally to me because there´s no more 1/1 to soak it or it would try to deal de damage to that 1/1 and "fizzle"?

    OH MY GOD.
    I can't even start....

    lol, love this set, love the crazy bump on average power level, love how beefy this thing is.

    Crazy set is crazy.

    Tron Players Rejoice?

    hehe

    I mean, it´s even possible to chain it into itself in a tron deck

    cast it for 12 mana, untap 5 tron lands, draw 10, if another copy is at hand, cast it again for the lulz, untap again.
    do whatever you want.
