RCotD #183

Random Card of the Day #183:

Sleight of Hand - U
Look at the top two cards of your library. Put one of them into your hand and the other on the bottom of your library.

Initial Thoughts:

I would consider this strictly worse than Preordain. On the plus side you don't "draw" the cards, you put them into your hand, which means it gets around Zur's Weirding and Underworld Dreams. But if you look at both the cards and want to keep both, you can't, you must send one away to the bottom.

It's a good card, and saying something is "strictly worse" is probably wrong, but I would not play this card over Preordain or Ponder. I guess it's okay considering I play Telling Time.

4/5 because I can see it's potential in many other decks, it it's sift is actually pretty powerful, even at just the cost of U. But I still feel almost nothing holds a candle to Ponder. Maybe Brainstorm. Maybe.
