I don't want a card in my hand that I don't want to look at for 4+ turns, maybe that is just me though.

Mmmh.

I always was the biggest fan of a blue scry. I would prefer this over "draw 3". But to be honest, it still could be better. In my opinion, the best blue draw spell has the following facts:

- It has cmc2
- it doesn't grant card advantage
- it can remove unwanted cards
- it's an enchantment
-
Got it? It's Ancestral Knowledge.

Therefore, instead of scry 4 + draw 2, it would have been better to print a scry 8 + draw 1 card. And this would be inferior to a scry 13 card without a draw effect.... similar to the Ancestral Knowledge. I would rather have a Diabolic Tutor than any semi-random draws. But the best card would be a "scry X. X can be any number" card.

The Goblin Recruiter was a card, when I have to think about the next turns, taking mana cost, possible countermeasures into account. So in my opinion, this is what blue should be about. Sorting your whole library would be the greatest task for a blue mage. Can you plan more then 2 turns... (see all)

That is the best way to draw four eyes on one "person" without it looking messed up. It looks weird, but not messed up.

What would be a good replacement for this in standard?

@Foresee: You're a good card, if a bit slow. When it comes to digging for what you want, there isn't much out there that's better than you at 4-CMC (Diminishing Returns doesn't count, and Cryptic Annelid is wacky). Compared to Concentrate, you give half the card advantage but dig twice as far; it's an interesting trade-off. When I look at you, I can't help but think "I'd like to put you in my deck," but I have never actually done the deed. Also I shudder because of the whole creepy-cloned-eyes thing. *shudder*

@Philosophy: The "replacement" to Foresee in Standard at the moment is probably Forbidden Alchemy, but that has waaaaaay different benefits and drawbacks, especially when reanimation is involved.
