In addition to being a great draw spell, Brainstorm can be used to hide cards from discard spells.

While Brainstorm is good, I prefer to use Scroll Rack to hide my cards. As for drawing, well, obviously Brainstorm is better.

I love when you're opponent thoughtseizes your 2 card hand, then you draw three, leaving just lands in your hand and all your good cards on top.

This is better than Ponder for the simple fact of draw seven abilities. If you need to keep any thing that is in your hand that you are about to lose to Wheel of Fortune or Memory Jar, Brainstorm and put those cards from your hand on top of your library. Instant speed wins. Suck that Ponder lovers!

I can see this going well with cascade, lets you place cards on top of your library from your hand to cascade into if you dont have the mana to play them

Its about a 1000x better than a card that literally was only 'U: instant. draw a card.', but even that card would be just swell to have.

Fleeting Distraction is good?

The second best draw spell of all time, I still dreaming that maybe it will be reprinted someday.

the thing about this card is that a lot of the time it is actually effectively drawing you 3 cards.

think about how often 2 cards in your hand are either just land u wont need until turns later or just a situational removal spell or anything you dont need this turn or the next.

it digs deep to find answers and is one of the best cards ever printed.
