Expropriate
 
This is a very interesting card for multiplayer matches, because the correct vote when an opponent casts it is so wildly different in different contexts. I think whether or not you should vote for time also depends a lot on how many previous people have voted for time - when there are already two or more opponent turns for every one of yours, that really piles up, especially when at least one of those is playing blue (and presumably card-drawing) for Expropriate. If you're the one casting it, you'd better hope that somewhere in those votes is a way to win, because as soon as someone else gets to take a turn again, you can be sure they'll be coming after you. When you lose, you'll lose hard, but when you win, it'll be spectacular, and for me, that makes for a very good multiplayer card.

Expropriate (6/6)

 

Voting cards are always a fun way to make things happen, and Expropriate certainly fits the bill. You either come away with a lot of shiny toys to win the game with or a lot of time to do it with. At nine mana, though, it is a steep price to pay, particularly when you're at the mercy of other players giving you what they deem less problematic. It's fun for multiplayer, but keep it away from Constructed.
