Vizier of the Menagerie
 
The value of knowing this kind of effect isn't always apparent at first glance. Even a version that only gives you the information, like Field of Dreams from Legends, means that you have access to more cards than you should at any given time - much less a version like this or like Future Sight that lets you always have at least one card in your hand. I also find it amusing that you can use him to cast Progenitus in a mono-green deck, or in a mono-blue deck that uses Simic Signet or even Prophetic Prism.

Vizier of the Menagerie (4/26)

 

Vizier of the Menagerie is pretty stupidly powerful, it needs to be said. There's no two ways about it. It effectively and permanently expands your hand by 1 (while it lives), and you get a lot more flexibility in casting creatures. Add to it a stupidly durable body (4 toughness is a big deal, since a lot of burn hits at 3), and this can get games to snowball quickly in a creature-dense deck.

 

It does need to live a turn to get going in most cases, but it is fortunate to be in the color that enables the most explosive starts and can get this particular snek to the board before turn 4. In a deck tooled to its particular strengths, it's going to cause chaos rather effectively, and it's a creature that needs answers to avoid getting reamed.
