the Future Sight version of Future Sight
Posted By: adrian.malacoda (2/26/2012 7:48:38 PM)


Nearly every card in Time Spiral block was a throwback to at least one previously printed card.

This card references Future Sight and is part of the "Magus" super cycle of rare creatures. The Future Sight part of the cycle focuses on powerful enchantments, even matching the mana cost; the others are Magus of the Moat, Magus of the Abyss, Magus of the Moon, and Magus of the Vineyard.

The Time Spiral part of the cycle focuses on powerful artifacts: Magus of the Candelabra, Magus of the Disk, Magus of the Mirror, Magus of the Jar, and Magus of the Scroll. The Planar Chaos cycle focuses on powerful lands: Magus of the Bazaar, Magus of the Coffers, Magus of the Tabernacle, Mag... (see all)

This effect is crazy in EDH, especially stax. It incentivizes a low, low average CMC and rewards you immensely for it. Run lots of fetch lands, Ponder/Brainstorm effects, mana artifacts, and I'm talking to the tune of 3 or 4 extra cards per turn after turn 6. Oh, too bad we all lost our hands to my Mindslicer. That I just played off the top of my library. I think I'll proceed to play 3 or so cards per turn while you guys are stuck trying to draw yourselves out of it.

Don't even get me started with Future + Top. "1: Draw a card" Sound good?

With something to lower the casting cost of artifacts, like Cloud Key, Semblance Anvil or Etherium Sculptor + Sensei's Divining Top you can get to draw your whole deck and build your storm count to obscene amounts... In Modern, a Simian Spirit Guide and a single Grapeshot would do the trick.

I don't mind my opponent knowing I have a counterspell, but I do mind them knowing I do not have a counterspell. Even so, this card generates a lot of card advantage, and is just fun to play.

Your opponents wont want to cast anything when they see a counterspell waiting on top of your deck.

Solid balanced card that can be useful but not abused. Playing from top of your deck allows you to "draw" new cards faster, but allows your opponent to know what counterspells you have against him.

Gotta love a card that basically turns your deck into your hand. 5/5, no joke.

You guys better be grateful this card isn't red >_>
Sure, they get to see your counterspells, but you get to play cards off the top of your library all the time until you don't have more mana. Imagina all the creature advantage and all the affinity and storm spells you'll get to play!
- If only it had been red, then you'd never run out of burn spells!

Can't compare this card to Future Sight since this one is a wizard that can be tutored with Vedalken AEthermage!

Definately playing both cards in my EDH deck. 4.5/5

Just another misunderstood card. Pair him up with Momir Vig, Simic Visionary in a G/B deck. Throw in a few Vedalken Aethermages and you should be set. I love having him to use.
