wow, this is SO much better than Hypnotic Specter for only {1} more. Whilst it is possible that 2 lands COULD be revealed, the chances are low. To keep ability as is should probably cost {3}{b}{b}.

Yikes, yes. I think this ability has only been seen on Silent Specter before, which cost a lot more.

This card changed a lot. At first, it was like a Distress ({2}{b}{b} 2/2). Often, Hypnotic Specter would be better than that, and Shimian Specter was strictly better. Then it changed to a {1}{b}{b} 2/1 that did the same. And it was better than Hypnotic Specter again. Finally, I chose the Fall (Rise // Fall) effect. I had to increase the cost so it went back to 2/2. I guess I underestimated it (the power level in the set is so high there are better black cards so that could have helped). {3}{b}{b} wouldn't be a bad opportunity to have a 3/3 Specter with the same effect.
