My most favorite card of all time, out of all the power 9 I sold, Ancestral Recall is the one I miss the most.

This card is immensely powerful. You could build a deck around trying to reccur this thing as many times as possible. Also best card in the game in my oppinion (suck it Black Lotus).

Arguably the best card ever printed in Magic: the Gathering.

@Pinsir52: Wrong, it's actually the other way around. While Ancestral Vision does have a CMC of 0, as one isn't listed, that does not mean it costs 0 to play. As there is no mana cost listed on Vision, you can't play it from your hand, as you can't pay a non-existent cost. This means that the only way to play Ancestral Vision is to either cheat it out (which will probably cost you more than it would to just pay U for Recall) or use the Suspend cost, which is, surprise surprise, the same amount of mana it costs to play Ancestral Recall. Long story short, Recall is better because in the end they're going to cost you the same amount of mana, but Recall comes into effect when you pay the cost while Visions goes off four turns later. Ancestral Vision was printed pretty much for the sole purpose of making a balanced version of Ancestral Recall.

Richard Garfield said once that the reason he was OK with the Power 9 was that he didn't think the game would get as big as it did. He basically thought it would stay small so it wouldn't matter much. The part about finding them wasn't all it.

Heh, if you think it's powerful in Alpha, Beta, and Unlimited, did you know that in Gamma, the set before Alpha (Playtest set) Ancestral Recall and Time Walk were BOTH COMMONS? That is correct, this and Time Walk, as Commons.

Strictly worse than Storm Crow.
Unless used to draw Storm Crows.
