I think this'll be fun to try to pull off in Limited.
Milling a 40 card deck will be easier.
Mind, you may not get all the cards you need, so be careful.

I think it's a just little too close to Tome Scour in power, but any more would put it too close to Glimpse the Unthinkable, as well. I'll need to run it to see for certain, but it looks like it fits pretty well on the power curve. Also, superb flavor.

Well...there has to be mediocre cards to have the good ones stand out. We were fundamentally unprepared for Jace to sculpt our minds before, so we complained about power creep making the game un fun. Now even a glimpse of this unthinkable power leak brings just as strong complaints...we're just waiting to be traumatized by this nemesis of reason, irrationally complaining about both sides of the coin, hoping for everything to stay in stasis, with haunting echoes of the Power nine. There's a reason some cards are good and some cards are bad, do you want our memories pouring out of our brains like falling skulls (ie. return of the king)

This seems fairly powerful for its cost, is a common, (and thus could form a mill limited deck given multiples) and has nice synergy with Jace's Phantasm, leaving it so they need only three more cards in the grave before you have a 5/5 flying for Blue.

And it's common too! Mill decks may yet make their return.

Jace Mind Sculpts. I mind fingerpaint. Huh.

Anyway my (I mean Jace's) Phantastic Phantasm would like Glimpse the Unthinkable to be reprinted. Because B/U control decks don't have enough powerful cards (extreme sarcasm).

I think it's kind of funny how all these Jace-related cards vary so much as far as CMC. That is, Omniscience.

I have a feeling Return to Ravnica's going to pretty cool what with a graveyard theme in Standard and it itself being on a Plane of awesomeness.

I'm with you there SgtSwaggr. They need to reprint Glimpse the Unthinkable.

@ Arachobia...

Tome Scour may cost one mana less, but it also only mills for 5 per card, using two tome scours requires you to use two cards from your hand, so card-advantagewise Mind Sculpt is better.

Glimpse the Unthinkable requires black mana to be cast which makes it unusable in monoblue mill, there's also a lower chance to be able to use it on turn two. Not to mention it is a rare and not standard legal.

This card was my main victory condition during prerelease; 2 of these and 2 Archaeomancers totalled 28 milled cards, 33(40-7from starting hand) - 28 is 5, Vedalken Entrancer was there to finish the job.

Quite possible one of my favourite arts and favourite cards overall from the set, the reason being it is so balanced.
