I really don't think it is better then Duress Buy, i mean how often do you need to get rid of a creature, really this card needs to go along side Duress Buy

4 Duress Buy + 4 Thoughtseize Buy would almost guarantee a first turn discard

It's amazing that some people are rating this card so low.

Wonderful, Fantastic, brilliant - a type 2 duress that is overall better, this will be a staple card in all formats.

Oh this will def be a staple in all formats, how could it not, but from my point of view Duress Buy is just as good, if it let you discard lands then it would a hell of a lot better, but as it stands the ability to discard creatures to not losing two life are about even for me

Like i said before they need to get used alongside each other, oh and Distress Buy sucks

Easily the best card in Lorwyn and one of the best and most overpowered cards ever printed. Duress is extremely prominent in extended, and this is in many ways better. It offers more options and a very measly cost. Aside from that, it can, like previously stated, be combined with Duress, effectively doubling your chance of drawing it.

Why is Wizards so stupid in printing cards this and Extirpate Buy.

This card is absolutely filthy; significantly better than Duress, and probably one of the all-time top 40 most powerful non-land cards EVER PRINTED. Being able to nail Goblin Lackey, Birds of Paradise, Savannah Lions, Goblin Welder, Isamaru, Kird Ape, Nimble Mongoose, Jackal Pup, and other creatures (depending on the format) as well as any combo piece or opening-hand hate is twisted. Probably the most generally-relevant card printed since Brainstorm back in Ice Age. My only beef is that it should've been an uncommon. Wizards is creating a "haves and have-nots" world that is long-term bad for the overall game of Magic. People will tune out when "must have" cards cost $100.00 a playset. Earth to Rosewater...can you hear us...

EDIT 10/27/07: Make that $120.00 a playset (and out of stock - nice, wiz).

So this print this card after printing Extirpate Buy. Oh well, this card is insane either way.

Wizards are such turds for making this a rare... this is going to be in very nearly every deck that has black. It's already $30 and seems to still be going up :-/

This can be misdirected, Duress Can NOT be misdirected. That is a huge difference.

Still a powerful card and will be in many constructed decks, even in Vintage where decks want to add to their duresses.

I am so glad I pulled three of these in my Lorwyn box, one was foil!!

No one has mentioned yet that you could use this to pitch a reanimation target from your hand as well, so it can do yet another thing Duress Buy can't do. I don't know if its better though, sure 2 life isn't a lot to pay once, but playing multiple late game might hurt you. This is an awesome card though, that lets you play more then 4 Duress Buyes in your deck. Although I think Duress Buy/Thoughtseize Buy may be a little weak for an 8 of.

Agree.. so powerful.. combined with Extirpate...wicked.
I wonder the rarity of Duress if ever it will be reprinted.
