Ancestral Vision


Ancestral Vision is blue.

Suspend 4-(Blue) (Rather than play this card from your hand, pay (Blue) and remove it from the game with four time counters on it. At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter. When the last is removed, play it without paying its mana cost.)

Target player draws three cards.

I've never piloted Jund so I never realized how good Bloodbraid was. Well, not really. Obviously I played against it hundreds of times. But I think there is RUG potential with cards like

Ancestral Vision

Rogue Refiner

For future reference, when you have questions regarding rules, cards, or card interactions, you can use the Rules Q&A section of this site. Unlike the regular forums, you have the option to "Mark as Answer" a button to indicate your question has been resolved and you have no more follow-ups. I have taken the liberty of moving your thread--if you could mark an answer once this matter has been resolved, that would be appreciated.

A card's colour is determined by the mana symbols in its mana cost or its colour indicator (a dot next to its card type, such as Ancestral Vision having a Blue colour indicator). This only looks at the card face that is showing. For example, Archangel Avacyn  Flip is mono-White, even though its back face, Avacyn, the Purifier is Red due to a colour indicator.

Lone Rider  Flip is only a White permanent. As such, it will only receive the +1/+2 effect from Edge of Divinity.

It That Rides as One , on the other hand, lacks a casting cost and a colour indicator--thus it is a colourless creature. As such, once your Lone Rider  Flip transforms into It That Rides as One , it will go from being a White creature receiving the White benefit of Edge of Divinity to being a colourless creature, receiving neither benefit from Edge of Divinity.

I think KayneMarco has a good point about cards like Rogue's Passage . Key to the City is another good option, since it's cheap, and actually can provide a bit of additional card advantage.

Some extra low-cost draw spells to pump Toothy could be Ideas Unbound , Concentrate , Harmonize , Ancestral Vision , Breakthrough (although this one has a big downside), Careful Consideration , Cephalid Coliseum , Compulsive Research , and Ordeal of Thassa . On a related note, Thassa, God of the Sea would be another good addition, smoothing your draws with scry while also providing another way to make Toothy unblockable.

I honestly believe Song of the Dryads is one of the most powerful removal spells around, because turning a commander into a Forest just invalidates them until the enchantment is destroyed (because their forest general isn't destroyed by cards like Wrath of God ).

Happy Brewing!

No problem kgmoneylove! If your looking for a tutor replacement instead of Behold the Beyond , you might be better off with Dark Petition as most likely you will trigger the spell mastery by than. Ancestral Vision is also another great 0 drop that you can hit off that will do work as well as Lotus Bloom !

Ancestral Vision and other cards like it that have no casting cost in the upper corner have a CMC of 0, regardless of other ways to cast them like Suspend. Kari Zev's Expertise can be used to cast Ancestral Vision from your hand without paying for it.

Can Ancestral Vision and simalr cards be played for free by cards like Kari Zev's Expertise and the other cards in the cycle

You could swap the Snapcaster Magees for Mission Briefing and up the Ancestral Vision count for more drawing action. (Mission Briefing would allow you to flashback Ancestral Vision, while not paying mana). Otherwise a very cool deck :)

cdkime on Can you suspend sorceries

2 months ago

Yes you can. Case in point, Ancestral Vision is a sorcery that, in the absence of other cards, can only be cast with suspend.
