My fear is how long the turns are going to take when top is involved.
Vintage players can complain about everything it seems.
Top + this card is literally Yawgmoth's Bargain if you want it to be. Tap Top, draw a card, pay 1 life to cast Top... How long do Yawgmoth's Bargains turns take?
It's actually a strictly better Yawgmoth's Bargain as you are not going to draw your Moxen (or your one land drop) - you are just going to cast them. So instead of draw 13 cards with Bargain, you are instead drawing 16 or 17 cards for the same amount of life. Assuming drawing cards is even what you want to be doing. You could just cast a Dark Petition off the top, still get the BBB to cast Will, then do Will things.
You don't even need to run Tendrils if you don't want to. Just sacrifice 9 artifacts and Bolas's Sanctuary, then Will them all back to do it again.
I don't think this card is going to break Vintage. It's stopped by Grafdigger's Cage and Lavinia, Dacking one is going be hilarious (saccing Elementals to the -10 ability?), and Sphere's still affect the ability to cast spells. But this is WotC pushing the envelope, printing cards with potential combo applications, and has a powerful and distinctively Vintage feel to it.
Kind of wish all the people who complained ad nauseum about Cindervines and Lavinia would come back and contribute in a positive manner with discussions, interactions, and deck ideas. Since apparently WotC prints cards other than asymmetrical hate pieces.
