Reign of Fire: Nether Rip

Gotta dig the card art for this card too. I had to look at the updated rules to understand what the hell was going on here. For cost four, you get two portals. According to the rulebook, Portal reads: A keyword power cards can have. It means “Reveal the top three cards of your deck. You may put a revealed Demon ally with cost less than this card’s cost into play. Put the remaining cards on the bottom of your deck.” When you play this card, the portals activate. However, you complete one at a time once the card leaves the chain. You would reveal the top 3 cards of your deck, possibly causing a warp to trigger, and you can put a demon ally cost 3 or less into play, then put the remaining cards on the bottom of your deck. Repeat the process. So in total you would fish through 6 cards. Got enough warp in your cereal and you're bound to hit the sweet lucky charm. The first card I immediately think of when it comes to this card is Hesriana from fields of honor. I'm not even sure if that old world card holds value anymore- but I am sure there are many demon allies cost three or less worth playing. This card would definitely work in a raid, but may cause a uniqueness violation.
