You got a game element? I'll enchant it.

Please tell me all the reasons this card can't work!

it could work, but the same can be done with enchant player. unless there's a variant where players draw off the same library.

I suppooooooose... I guess I'm a little in love with the idea of 'enchant library'. I do like the idea of a 'shared library' variant, though... something else for the notebook!

What exactly do you mean by "they first cut the library?" I'm intrigued, but I'm not sure what your intent is here.

Cutting the deck, i.e. taking some amount of cards from the top, setting it down, then taking the remainder of the library and placing it on top of the first chunk.

I realize this has never appeared as a function of any other Magic cards but I figured the act of cutting a deck of cards should be familiar enough to most players.

Turns out cutting is mentioned in the comprehensive rules in passing, in 103.1:

Whoops! 103.1:

"At the start of a game, each player shuffles his or her deck so that the cards are in a random order. Each player may then shuffle or cut his or her opponents’ decks. The players’ decks become their libraries."

All the same, here's some reminder text!

R -> MR

neat card idea, i love exploring new things in my dump, but i think this should be a curse :P

Don't think that reminder text checks out. There's no rule about what defines a cut, I believe, so any variant of cut is allowed in Magic

Hence the problem with the single mention of it in the comprehensive rules... Magic knows cuts exist, but doesn't define what they are. At the extreme, I could say "more than zero but less than all of the cards from the top onto the bottom" but I feel like 'blind scrying' works against the spirit of what I want it to do... is moving a single card cutting?

the question remains

yeah, it's a good question, i mean, just moving the top card or two is pretty cheap. I think your old description was a good guideline, just is odd for magic to tell player's how to play in such a way... I would not even have reminder text on this card, anybody who has handled cards should know how to cut a deck imho :P
