@protoaddict Imagine this with Thought Scour, it fuels itself and you get to draw and dig for Phoenix for very cheap.
In the other formats people are looking at its interactions with Rituals which is also quite scary. Not so much with Cabal ritual, very much so with rite of flames.
I know WOTC does not care about vintage and does not plan card designs around the format, but they have to know that is going to be restricted already right?
I can already see this getting banned in modern as well because Phoenix builds can abuse the hell out of it, and it may be better than past in flames in some decks in that format.
