Thanks! I am thinking about changing the mana cost to just as a throwback to those powerhouse mythic cards of Grixis. Plus it bumps his mana cost up and is a little harder to cast.
No problem! That mana cost feels pretty good. I might still worry a little bit about the power level of the card, as both Kess and the old-school Toshiro Umezawa make a point of exiling the cards they replay. This card forces you to use your own resources to get cards back, but doesn't actually result in any net loss-- all while still easily creating some troublesome loops. (Removal spells and turn spells just churning constantly.) Some variant of making you discard cards as an additional cost when you cast a spell? (Edit: Or self-milling? Hmm.) Fuels the ability, potentially makes the random more random, and limits looping.
