Dictate of Kruphix - 1UU
Enchantment (Rare)
Flash.
At the beginning of each player's draw step, that player draws an additional card.
"Knowledge is cruel. It will break your heart and test your allegiances. Are you certain you want this curse?"

Thanks to flash you're able to draw the first extra card from Dictate of Kruphix before your adversary, something that doesn't happen with other Howling Mine type cards like Temple Bell, Font of Mythos, and Rites of Flourishing.

One way to turn Dictate of Kruphix's drawback of making your opponent draw cards to your advantage is if they end up taking damage from a Fate Unraveler. A better idea is to run Notion Thief, which will allow you to get the extra card instead of your opponent. Because in this sort of deck we want our adversary drawing lots of cards Master of the Feast becomes an MVP, and there's all sorts of other cards that will force your adversary to draw such as Whispering Madness .

Dictate of Kruphix slots nicely into a Nekusar, the Mindrazer deck, where you can use other draw cards such as Jace's Archivist to utterly devastate your opponent's life totals.

How will you use Dictate of Kruphix?
