BFZ Spoiler – Ugin’s Insight (R)

It’s strange to me seeing this card as a rare, as the cards that it’s most reminiscent of for me are Foresee and Rush of Knowledge. Neither of those are rare., yet this is. ┬áThat said, both of those cards are very powerful in the right environment, and Ugin’s Insight is no different.

With Jace’s Ingenuity rotating out, control decks will be looking for a new way to supplement Dig Through Time. Many lists have just been using Treasure Cruise in addition to Dig, as Jace, Vryn’s Prodigy does a great job of supporting a high volume of delve, but another option with potential upside over drawing three cards isn’t bad.

There’s also competition from Dragonlord’s Prerogative, and it’s possible that there are too many strong alternatives for Ugin’s Insight to see immediate standard success. Once we lose the powerhouses that are Dig Through Time and Treasure Cruise though, this card could have its moment in the sun.

For now, and in light of all the other options available to draw cards, this seems like a low-end rare in a set full of really powerful rares.
