    The Japanese ones look cool.

    Time Warp art looks cool, but the art of the other ones and those frames in general look like ass.

    Depending on the lessons you can run, Professor might very strong as it's a 2 mana CA/tutor card. Looting is the less good option, but it's still something.

    And there's our Chain of Smog wincon - it's even GSZable. Two cards, 4 mana.

    Willowdusk might be interesting with Ballista.

    Sorry about the hack-crop-jobs, I suck. Not sure if I missed any though.

    I like how equally the love is spread for the different apprentices.

    GU: card advantage/mana fixing
    GB: combo win con and reach and lifegain
    WB: um... one of your guys gets +1/+0... for this turn

    LOL.

    It looks like they accidentally mixed up the abilities of the WB and the WR ones, honestly.

    Yeah, that actually is exactly what it is. So it will only be legal in Legacy/Vintage/EDH until MH's release, I think they said.

    Does it do that better than land tax or life from loam though? Could compliment it well at least.

    In land-heavy decks, it should synergize with Loam quite nicely. You also thin your deck from lands and assuming the game goes long enough, you can even stack your deck to a certain extend.

    But even without retrace, this card might end up just being another one in the long list of recent UG mistakes. The amount of CA this thing can potentially create is just plain stupid, even if it's just lands. Combine it with something like Library to always hit and dig deeper and your opponents are in for a world of hurt. It even has AWESOME and GSZable.

    Edit: Oh God, I just realized how stupid Magecraft is with Flusterstorm. This mechanic is completely fucked.

    They haven't used the "in any order" templating in a while, have they? I feel like they switched to a random order a few years/sets ago.

    Which makes it even more weird. Maybe it felt too time-consuming to randomise every time, given the amount of triggers?

    The Flusterstorm thing really worries me. You should be able to easily get 3-5 triggers out of it - per Apprentice. Those things stack and can easily get silly really fast - especially if you run GSZ (for extra copies) that also trigger Apprentice. Uro and Brainstorm are good ways to utilize that flood of extra lands. Brainstorm can also set up the next trigger to definitely hit. Scroll Rack might also work.
