I only had one, single wish for a reprint in AVR: Evacuation.

While this lacks the (Instant) surprise factor, the Miracle cost and near-Upheaval level of power are more than enough to satisfy my desire for a Big Blue Reset Button.

THANK YOU, Wizards!
This is something Blue has been missing for quite a while,
and it came back with immense force.

This will also rule for anyone who wanted Upheaval in their EDH decks-
it doesn't hit lands, but it'll still be a great tool to have!

Not only amazing for any type of blue control, this will be played in WhiteBlue along with Terminus and all sorts of CIP effects

Although I quite playing paper magic around the time Evacuation was printed, I vaguely remember it being too much mass control for Blue. With all the graveyard recursion and and undying in standard, this seems slightly better than Terminus.

Hell, with both I see no reason NOT to make a permission deck.

Seems rather funny with a Howling mine type of effect, wish there was more synergy... Temple Bell?

This is what I feel miracles should be. Playable even if you don't get to cast them for their miracle cost.

This is a tier 1 card that will be a mainstay in almost all blue decks. And the non-miracle cost is just fine. We will see this in RU and WU all the time.

One of the best miracles. Terminus is better but blue is the color of library manipulation, so it's easier to pull off Evacuation for 1Blue.

okay, so it's not so good if it gets stuck in your hand.
but look at the flavor text for a second:
It's hard to argue with a force made of divine will.

A practiced player would recognize a good card like this from a mile away, and Swanland art from another ten. 5/5

"Here's the deal... you can clear the entire board for only 2cmc... but you have to do it NOW. like, right now."

"Damn, that's not bad...Ummmm... can I hold onto it for now and cast it for like, 5 later?"
