Well new base set around the corner, we can't expect too many new stuff as there are lots of reprint.

-7: Any number of target players each draw twenty cards.

Not sure, it's easier to kill than the tower, but it can mill a player quite fast. Probably not good enough, but interesting. It's mill 10 + force the milled player to attack you. If you mill a player with no creatures, you might get it to live a second turn.

I know some people use Treasure Trove, I would see no reason not to run this too.

For each nonland permanent, choose a player at random. Then each player gains control of each permanent for which he or she was chosen. Untap those permanents.

I so want to see this card in action! It's probably one of those that takes too much time to resolve, but it sounds fun.

Play with the top card of your library revealed.
You may play the top card of your library if it's a creature card. 7/7

This isn't Future Sight, but it's also a big dude.

I really doubt hexproof instead of shroud is a bigger improvement over 0 equip cost instead of 1.

Well, too bad you think that, cause it's better pretty much 100% of the time (baring any Mindslaver shenanigans).

agree.  still seems a bit weak, but would be better/worse depending on the ratio of creatures to other card types in the stack.

Scrambleverse sounds like a blast but isnt very good from a strategic perspective unless you have nothing.

Agreed, it's pretty much a last pick, but once you get it, why not play with it. There is always a goofy player that just wants to mix the game up and that doesn't care winning, that card is for this guy Smile

Here's the first card I've really liked for Type 4 (though I love Scrambleverse for my Chaos Effect Stack):

Rune-Scarred Demon    {5} {B} {B}
Creature - Demon
Flying
When Rune-Scarred Demon enters the battlefield, search your library for a card, put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.
6/6

Good ability on a solid body.  Great with Karmic Guide, Artisan of Kozilek, and Clone effects.  Ridiculous with Kiki-Jiki!

it would be a lot of fun when just playing random decks with no drafting. 

Re: rune-scarred Demon - now we're talking.  it's the demonic tutor himself!  A 6/6 flyer that tutored for anything relevant (an instant, another creature etc) would be worth it, but this guy gets anything. Lysyc12 already mentioned a few, but there's a lot of tricks associated with the fact that this guy is a creature.  A very solid addition.

And the hits keep coming!

Sphinx of Uthuun        {5} {U} {U}
Creature - Sphinx    
Flying
When Sphinx of Uthuun enters the battlefield, reveal the top five cards of your library. An opponent separates those cards into two piles. Put one pile into your hand and the other into your graveyard.
5/6

I really hope there is a cycle of these guys!

Sorin's Vengeance
   4bbb
Sorcery    Rare
Sorin's Vengeance deals 10 damage to target player and you gain 10 life.

It's a little worse than Searing Wind in most cases, but 10 damage spells are just excellent in general, and this one gives you life to boot.

It's pretty generous for a base set so far.
