I'm really not too sure how good this card is. I mean, sure it gives you a 2nd chance at life, but your opponent still has all his cards, and you are essentially starting over.

Would suspended cards get reset with this...?

I really have no idea.

Other than that, seems like a waste of a slot as mentioned before, because if they killed you, they can most likely do it again when you have no defenses next turn. Might be decent against burn-storm decks or something.

I'm still waiting to see if someone finds a way to break this card, but I doubt it'll happen. Unless you cast something rather devestating on your opponent before the effect triggers, you basically start back on turn 1 with nothing in play.

It doesn't seem like this card will save you, but rather just delay the inevitable for a couple turns.

Only a huge idiot would rate the artwork so low

Only a huge idiot would arbitrarily decide what others' opinions on artwork (or anything for that matter) should be.

That said, this card is worthless. Maybe even worse than that.

It basically reads "If you would lose the game, instead waste another 5-10 minutes and lose the game again." If you lose the game, there's probably a reason for it. And whatever that reason was, shuffling your PERMANENTS away will not help you survive it second time around.

Not only that, but no deck should EVER be running a card that is useless unless you LOSE THE GAME. What a stupid situation to account for. Instead of running this, why not just run a card that will help prevent you from losing in the first place? Or better yet, something you can actually win with!

The one redeeming factor of this card though is that it's not as situational as it first appears. Any deck stupid enough to run this card will probably trigger it every single game.

Spaceman Spiff is correct. The Artwork rocks and People who don't see the potential of this card, should probably look for another hobby.

I for one would like to see this "potential" people are talking about with this card... because I really don't see it.

I suppose if you cast something like Armageddon Buy then burned yourself to death while this was in play, it might set you up for a win... but a deck shouldn't have to rely on a combo like that.

Other than combos like that, this card resets the game for you alone... sure, you're at 20 life instead of zero, but you get to start all over while your opponent keeps everything he/she already had in play. Like Pistachio said, you're likely to lose again anyways. Not to mention, up until the point where you lose, this card does absolutely nothing while in play.

As I already said, this card only delays the inevitable, nothing more, nothing less. I'd honestly rather use Invincible Hymn Buy over this artifact, and the hymn really isn't all that great itself.

Last but not least, I agree also that artwork rating is solely opinion based. Just because you think it's good doesn't mean others will.. and it doesn't make them idiots either just because they don't agree with you.

It depends on the deck you were playing against and what the condition of your loss was, I have lost to decks where i had most of the board under my control simply to direct damage spells or permanent control circumstances but that does not mean i could not have won the match.

I agree because artwork is in the eye of the beholder. What may be a masterpiece to you is a crap to other or vice-versa.

I would like to see this played with Balance Buy control. Since Balance Buy is restricted we may consult the tutors.

My rating is fair because I'm not sure yet, if this will create an impact in the future.

There are so many cards that do pretty much the same thing with a lot less draw back. For instance, Worldpurge Buy and Primal Command Buy together do the exact same thing as the Mirror, except your opponent doesn't get his graveyard back. If you somehow manage to protect this legendary piece of crap until you die, congratulations! You just lost. Good art, though.

I love using poison counters against a friend foolish enough to play this. He gets 10, loses the game, resets then loses the game again.
