  • The spell chosen by this minion will be cast and then removed from the deck. It works similarly to put into battlefield effects that target minions in your deck, such as Recruit.
  • Grand Archivist only selects a spell that meets all preconditions for casting it (for example,  Mind Control will only be cast if the enemy controls a minion and your side of the board is not full). If there are no valid spells in the deck that can be cast at the time the effect triggers, nothing will happen.
  • When an unidentified spell (i.e.  Unidentified Elixir,  Unidentified Shield) is cast, it will only activate the base effect.
  • Spells that involve a choice, such as Discover effects, will choose a random option.
  • Eligible targets for spells that target a minion include the Grand Archivist himself.
