They're dogs, and they're playing poker!!!
Anyway, incredible mill card, 10 cards is high enough for it to do nothing else than mill, and it is the right milling colours, great stuff.

I don't know why, but I keep parsing this cards name as "Glimpse, the Unthinkable". Which admittedly would be a pretty neat name for a legendary creature.

I feel like even with snapcaster in standard it would still be fine. Even with them together in standard you would only see the combo once per game if you were lucky, and the rest of the mill in the format is way to slow and much of it is bad compared to how fast the environment is. If it started getting over powered Golgari would start getting really strong, really fast against them and you could easily sideboard in elixirs in any deck, or even tormods crypt if the mill deck had creatures based on your graveyard. The two cards really make a difference in a dedicated mill deck.

A super solid mill spell, and just what BlueBlack loves to see, being one of their specialties and all. It's terribly overpriced right now though, and could definitely use the reprint in Gatecrash—if not "Sinker"—to hopefully bring it into an affordable range for everyone.

For those of you saying this shouldn't be reprinted because of Snapcaster Mage, what are you complaining about; I thought mill was supposed to be a "weak" archetype? Might want to take that back, eh?

@Bulhakas:
It's not undercosted. It's about the same strength as Lightning Bolt, except it costs two mana, each a different color. At rare, no less.

I like to think that Glimpse the Unthinkable makes you see Nemesis of Reason even if those two cards are around 2 blocks apart

The truth about the Dimir: they

No one reveals our secrets.

Unfortunately it didn't see a Gatecrash reprint, but Dragon's Maze may still contain this. It's said to have all ten guilds represented in a small set, so who knows. I do know that the Cipher ability in Gatecrash is about to be heavily abused by me though. Oh, hello Invisible Stalker. What's that? You have a Cackling Counterpart behind you? You don't say!
Stolen Identity for even more hexproof/unblockable madness? Okay.
Paranoid Delusions (which also has the same exact mana cost as Glimpsy here), to mill three per turn, guaranteed? Okay.
Whispering Madness to dig deeper into your own deck whilst milling even more deviously? Super dee freaking duper!

He saw the truth and screamed it for all to hear...

This is a rare because a card that does absolutely nothing except mill is terrible in draft. Look at all the color shifting cards and other incredibly specialized cards. Almost all of them are rares to stop them from being too common in drafts. This also helps wizards keep "good" and "rare" from being synonymous. That said, since this is specialized and good, it definitely needs to be reprinted.

I would also like to note that it takes 7 bolts to kill, while 5 of these will generally do the trick.

I pray this get's reprinted in Journey into Nyx. I think it would finally make mill viable, rather than just printing 5 drops who have a focus on mill but aren't fast enough to actually make it worth while. And it would make plenty of sense with Ashiok around in the story. Hell it would go great with Breaking in standard right now, there was once a standard that had both Shock and Bolt, so why can't mill have Glimpse and Breaking?

Idk why this was a rare. Thats like saying lightning bolt should be a rare. With the new Mind Sculpt, I think it supports my point. Yes its weaker, but justified from being easier to splash.

Why the low rating guys? Seriously if this was a common the price would be much lower.

I find it quite ironic how this is the tenth highest community rated dimir card... I think it's pretty self explanatory.
