    Mindprobe N. (Look at the top N cards of an opponent's library. Exile a nonland card from among them. That player shuffles his or her library.)

    *Let me know if you have better wording or name ideas!

    *It's easy to confuse action keywords with other mechanics like static ability keyword, triggered ability keyword... Please check out example cards if you don't know how to use those mechanics.

    *A little tip.
    You can continue the text after action keyword, like "scry 2, then draw a card." But if you do that, the reminder text starts with "To ____, ". For example,
    Scry 2, then draw a card. (To scry 2, look at the top two cards of your library, then put any number of them on the bottom of your library and the rest on top in any order.)

    This may help you in the future for your combo thread. Otherwise, it'll be hard to list those combos!
