Aether Searcher

Oracle Text

Reveal Aether Searcher as you draft it. Reveal the next card you draft and note its name.

When Aether Searcher enters the battlefield, you may search your hand and/or library for a card with a name noted as you drafted cards named Aether Searcher. You may cast it without paying its mana cost. If you searched your library this way, shuffle it.

Card Rulings

5/29/2014 When casting a card this way, ignore timing restrictions based on the card’s type. Other timing restrictions, such as “Cast [this spell] only during combat,” must be followed.
5/29/2014 If you cast a card “without paying its mana cost,” you can’t pay alternative costs such as overload costs. You can pay additional costs such as kicker costs. If the card has mandatory additional costs, you must pay those.
5/29/2014 If the card has in its mana cost, you must choose 0 as its value.
5/29/2014 If Aether Searcher leaves the battlefield before its ability resolves, you’ll still be able to search for the named card and cast it.
5/29/2014 If the card you draft after Aether Searcher is a land card, you won’t be able to play that land using Aether Searcher’s ability.
5/29/2014 If Aether Searcher is the last card you draft in any draft round other than the last one, you’ll reveal the first card you draft in the following draft round and note its name.
5/29/2014 If Aether Searcher is the last card you draft, there won’t be a noted name. You can still search your hand and/or library when it enters the battlefield, but you won’t cast any card this way unless you also drafted an Aether Searcher and noted a card then.
5/29/2014 If an Aether Searcher owned by another player enters the battlefield under your control, you can search for a card you’ve named while drafting a card named Aether Searcher, not a card named by its owner. Unless you also drafted a card named Aether Searcher, you won’t cast a card.
5/29/2014 You cast the card before shuffling your library (if it was searched). In some very rare cases, you may need to take actions involving your library while casting the card. For example, if it has an additional cost and you activate Deranged Assistant’s ability (“, Put the top card of your library into your graveyard: Add .”) to pay for it, you must maintain the order of your library while you search it.
