It's an expensive blue enchantment that does the mechanic from the set!

added some reminder text - hoping it looks ok

Funky card. Pefectly usable with Nekrataal or Flametongue Kavu; somewhat insane with things like Massacre Wurm or Woodfall Primus. But at a 7 mana enchantment, that's probably not broken.

"it is sacrificed" => "sacrifice that" in reminder text

With the big Eldrazi, this becomes a bit crazy. Ulamog becomes UU: Destroy target permanent and shuffle your graveyard into your library, Kozilek draws four cards, and Emrakul gives you an extra turn. I just don't know if this should be made, even at 7 mana, because there are so many potentially broken combos. If you have Adarkar Valkyrie or Cauldron of Souls, for example, all of your creatures suddenly cost only UU.

What about a rider that says "Whenever a creature cast for its evoke cost dies, exile it"? That should eliminate the reanimation shenanigans. Also, boosting the evoke cost to {u}{u}{u} may be necessary.

The exile suggestion may be sensible, but I think boosting the evoke cost removes a lot of the fun.

Link's got some good concerns, but I think testing this card is probably the best way to see how broken it is compared to, say, Eye of Ugin. While we wait to see if this card is broken, let me suggest an even more ridiculous card to pair this up with: Palinchron.

Hahahaha. Yes. But the brokenness there is definitely on Palinchron's side :P

Check evoke's reminder text. The creature's controller sacrifices it (not "you").
