My blue control deck loves this card. It's chock full of Clones and such, draw spells, Mind Controls ect. "Oh you're attacking with your Baneslayer Angel, Mind Control at Instant speed, I'll take that from you" :)

@Cheza: This card exemplifies blue perfectly. Blue seeks complete control and knowledge and being able to cast anything at anytime helps accomplish that. Blue is also the color of deceit in that the opponent assumes you are defenseless with no creatures on the board and then you flash a defender to stop them cold.

@ pudger88
"here is a question if you have Echo Mage at level 2 -4 can you technically copy anything because of what the leyline says.?"

No; Echo Mage's tier-1 and -2 abilities say "Copy target instant or sorcery spell" (twice, in the latter case). Leyline of Anticipation says nothing about turning your spells into instants or sorceries; it says you can play nonland cards as if they had flash. From a game mechanics perspective, those two things are enormously different.

@ Cheza:
"This card should have been a white enchantment... Blue however, tends more to control, delay, prediction."

How the hell is "control, delay, and prediction" not exactly what this card does?

On the card itself, trying to explain how awesome it is is sort of like trying to explain all the ways you love your significant other. There's so many things that come to mind that you just can't quite articulate any of them; there's too much to say for any one thing to make it from tho
... (see all)

Awesome card.

So, you're attacking with your entire army for lethal damage? Looks like I'm dead, but wait I have an instant speed Wrath of God in my hand.

There's absolutely no reason to run at least 1 of these in any deck able to make blue mana. This thing makes any card with an upkeep ability much easier to have trigger since your opponent will be more more limited in his capability of interfering with it.

Now just sit there, and imagine this with things such as Goblin Flectomancer, they can't even see it coming.

Instant-speed Preordain? (essentially)...Yes please! Also, combo - enabler with Omen Machine, as it will allow you to cast cards such as sorceries etc.

This card, all by itself, made me like {U}. Thank you, my turn 0 win condition.

I like Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir better, but being able to cast sorceries and enchantments as with flash... and being able to do that from the get-go... ho ho ho
