DemonDragonJ on Will Book of Rass Ever ...

Rabid_Wombat, WotC reprinted Greed , so I believe that Book of Rass is eligible for a reprint, as well.

Also, its high mana cost is to balance out the fact that it is colorless, and, thus, can be put into any deck.

I think that Book of Rass is an awesome card that deserves to be reprinted, as it is essentially a colorless version of Greed , which is obviously an awesome card. I feel that the book would look awesome in the new card frame with new artwork and flavor text, so I do hope that WotC reprints it, eventually.

What does everyone else say about this? Will WotC ever reprint Book of Rass ?

Book of Rass is better than Arcane Encyclopedia . Arcane Encyclopedia is probably only decent card draw in a Boros deck. And even then, Book of Rass is still better, even at 6 CMC.

What about Book of Rass ? It costs six mana, but its ability costs only 2 mana to activate and can be used repeatedly.

Book of Rass is a decent colorless card draw option. With all your ramp, it could draw you a metric ton of cards in a turn if you need them.

The way I see it this deck is mid-range control, does not have an explicit win-condition, and has 2 Plans.

Plan A: Kadena sticks, you get a flash enabler out like Vedalken Orrery , a bounce-to-hand effect like Temur Sabertooth , and keep most of your mana open for flipping, bouncing, and free-casting. In this way you control as you see fit, build your board state, but 2/2s will not be intimidating anyone.

Helpful cards: Erratic Portal , Cyclonic Rift , Crystal Shard , AEtherize , Displacement Wave , Capsize , Beast Whisperer , Soul of the Harvest , and Curse of the Swine .

Plan B: Kadena does not stick, you still have your flash enabler and bounce-to-hand effect, but now mana is tight and you need to keep controlling the board.

Helpful cards: Wilderness Reclamation , Unwind , Rewind , Awakening , Curse of Bounty , Dramatic Reversal , and Peregrine Drake .

In both Plans you will have extra mana, either for flipping morphs or casting and flipping morphs. But what if you do not need to do those things? Now you have potentially a lot of mana "going to waste." I would suggest adding in a few outlets where you can turn extra mana in card advantage, tokens, or something else you deem needed/relevant.

Helpfull cards: Treasure Trove , Tower of Fortunes , Erebos, God of the Dead , Book of Rass , Well of Knowledge , Customs Depot , Freyalise's Charm , Greed , Mind's Eye , Ant Queen , Spawnsire of Ulamog , and Deadeye Plunderers .

In all of these instances there has been an emphasis on drawing cards because without finding more morphs the game-plan gets derailed quickly either because opponent's know which you have or wipe the board before you can bounce them back to hand. As an alternate win-condition that complements drawing cards I would say to either try to mill yourself or opponent's out.

Helpful cards: Jace's Erasure , Psychic Corrosion , Sphinx's Tutelage , Jace's Erasure , Mesmeric Orb , Altar of the Brood , Jace, Wielder of Mysteries , Laboratory Maniac , Minds Aglow , Prosperity , Blue Sun's Zenith and Fascination .

Adding in a mini voltron package is not a bad idea too, where even just one of these could be fine.

Helpful cards: Diviner's Wand , Blackblade Reforged , Nightmare Lash , Lashwrithe , and even Buried Alive + Filth , Brawn , and Wonder .

Get rid of Manalith , Pristine Talisman , and Darksteel Ingot for the Talismans: Talisman of Hierarchy , Talisman of Dominance , and Talisman of Progress . Condemn should be replaced by something like Utter End , Anguished Unmaking , Murder , Go for the Throat , or some better removal spell that will actually remove something. You are running in here, so play to it's strengths. Instead of Curse of the Swine , I'd run something more like In Garruk's Wake or Plague Wind . Yeah, they are a high CMC, but they're budget, and one-sided. Day of Judgment would be a decent option, too.

You're running Wizard's Retort with only one Wizard in your deck. Cut it for 2 CMC counterspell or another removal piece.

Book of Rass is Book of Ass in this deck; the only colors I run Book of Rass in is Boros, because Boros sucks at card draw. With all the lifegain, Necropotence could be worth the risk to run. can be tough to pull off in a three-color deck, but it might be worth a shot in this deck with all the lifegain. Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip and Erebos, God of the Dead are other options to consider.
