Hey, nice card! I'd say it probably needs the clause 'nonland'. And, technically, I think this would cost {1}{b}, since I would gladly pay {b} for a card that Coercioned and always let my opponent draw a card. But I can squint and pretend. :)

I mean if it was thoughtseize (sans life) but they drew then it's essentially Vendilion Clique but without flash and a flying 3/1. Not sure if that's really great since you have nothing after resolving this.

I don't count Thoughtseize when considering power level for black discard. Any card that people consistently play 4 of in vintage as well as any standard environment that it's printed in is probably too good.

Funny thing is, they probably will reprint it some day. Just like Lightning Bolt, it might be overpowered and 'broken', but there are more forces in Magic than just game balance.

Turn 1 discard is quintessential. No other way can you stop what your opponent is doing on turn 1/2.

This almost has a similar power level to Force of Will. It's not a good card if they name correctly, you're just down a card.

I also love how this is USELESS later in the game as if they only have one non-land card, it's a redraw for them and you just wasted a card.
