Welcome back! This week we have a card that's vaguely reminiscent of Underworld Dreams. Except it lets you double down on the life loss at the expense of locking you out of a draw step.

Unlike a lot of black enchantments, the owner can stop this at any time to draw a card. That doesn't make you lose two life, btw. Annoying that some players might imagine it does, but the reminder text would have been groan worthy.

So worst case scenario, this is a sorcery that says "Target player loses 2 life. Draw a card." Best case scenario, you play this card on round 4, 5, and 6, and your opponent doesn't have a good offense. You can't skip your draw step thrice!

But what is this card's name?

­Idiocracy.

So the pre-existing concepts for this kind of effect have names involving unpleasant dreams/visions, foolishness (as per Jack), fate unravelling, tyrrany, a parasite, and a couple of dudes who attack your mind. What I'm gathering is that there's space for lots of concepts here :) This one allows you a way to avoid the damage, at a steep cost.

My first thought is Wilful Ignorance, though that is quite similar to Jack's.

Alternatively, something with "Persecution" in, except... it needs something more... Ah, of course, put a name to it. Ob Nixilis's Persecution.
