Marking this down for changes, drawing a card is nice but not particularly relevant to what white wants to do. Maybe a nice fog variant?

Also I'm pretty sure I've read on the MTG site that adding a 'draw a card' rider is the most uninteresting and uncreative of riders unless it interacts strongly with a theme (like dredge for example).

Hmm. I don't recall reading that on dailymtg. And I disagree: cantrips are popular and serve a good purpose in Limited.

True; they're good - but you don't get very much punch in the fun for that amount of good. "Oh, cantrip, yawn" is the reaction of people who don't count card advantage; but you can't make it do something awesome too - because then it'd be just "Everyone runs four"

The name sounds like it would have a bigger effect, like Divine Intervention.

Huh. I know where the anti-cantrip argument comes from, but whenever I see a cantrip, I do a little fist-pump. I love marginal effects, and tacking 'draw a card' onto a card is a gigantic red flag that I'd enjoy playing the card.

But I admit, I'm not your standard player. For example, my goal when building decks is, rarely, to win. I want to have an interactive challenge with my opponent. So, yeah, there's got to be a large amount of people who don't like it when you print 'yet another cantrip'. There's also a large contingent who love them, so as long as you don't flood the file with them, I'd think one should encourage their existence.
