Good card, good art. I really doubt that the designers of this could've foreseen the impact it would have on the eternal formats from then on out.

Cannot wait to bust a Foil Brainstorm. Anyone who knows magic knows the power of this card.

@SpaceMagic: But WotC didn't change Brainstorm's rarity. It was always a common. So moving Swords to Plowshares to common wouldn't have been "the same thing".

Wow...and at common, too. Part of me almost thinks they could have done the same thing with Swords to Plowshares if that was their MO.

@A3Kitsune: the difference to me being that it has not been in an actual limited environment for many of it's reprinting a. I meant to highlight surprise that such a non-situationally powerful card could be part of a contemporary draft, even one so loose as Conspiracy.

What can I say about Brainstorm that hasn't been said already? Nothing.
BUT I've always disliked this art, I love both the original arts.
I don't know which one I like best, Ice Age or Mercadian Masques?

Wait a second,the Set&Legality tab can't be right. Brainstorm can't possibly be legal in Modern and Standard, can it? Conspiracy cards are only legal in Eternal formats, right?
Along with StP, Fact or Fiction and a couple of other powerhouses, that would be crazy.

It wouldn't take long until they will ban this card in Modern,
as you can do the same crazy topdecking shenanigans with fetchlands.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
