Draw three cards. Target player puts the top three cards of their library into their graveyard.
In lives that have stretched for centuries, there are bound to be a few awkward silences.

Between this and Karn's Temporal Sundering, it is apparent that Karn is the king of making weird faces.

I suppose so. Or maybe just too good at low rarities, and boring at rare.
At least w get extra utility with it.

*"To YMTC it up" means to design cards that have value mostly from a design perspective. i.e. you would put them in a case under glass in your living room and visitors could remark upon the wonderful design principles, with nobody ever worring if the cards are annoying/pointless/confusing in actual play

It's clearly uncommon?

Yeah, I think TP knew that in his reply, just Echo wrote the wrong thing in the text spoiler.

Draw 3 is usually an uncommon effect. But it's weird to stick a small mill effect on an uncommon since you can't get these in enough volume to mill someone (and it mills you as fast as them anyway, so it's not going to help in a game that just coincidentally goes long). Also, there's only a few graveyard effects in this set, are there enough that you would want to mill yourself?

It could be that there is a common mill card to go along with this, but this card will be taken by any blue player, so it won't get passed to the person playing mill, so the common will have to work on its own with no help from this.

It seems like the most pointless ability, stuck on only to justify printing this at 5.

At least it’s better than Thassa's Bounty.
