Big Idea -
Sorcery
Return target instant or sorcery card with converted mana cost 3 or greater from your graveyard to your hand.
Overload
"THIS is the big idea!"


The cmc restriction stops you ping ponging 2 of these, and might lower its power in older formats, without needing an "exile" clause. You can still go infinite with a Recollect or something, but I think at a certain cost we shouldn't have to develop out these kind of loops all the time.

I like this a lot. I'd prefer if it was CMC 3 and returned things that were 4 or greater, just because this is a lot better than Call to Mind at 2 mana.

I also like this a lot. Noninfinite combos are one of my great loves. I think this works at 2 cmc since it's multicolor and Call To Mind doesn't seem to be setting the world on fire. Still, CKY might be right.

I think being 3 cmc and returning 4 or greater would be slightly more balanced. Doing so would also let you reduce the overload cost a bit too. However, I feel like this is just minor tweaking on a great concept.
