Instant Speed with Leyline of Anticipation on Serum Visions after targeting it in the graveyard with Snapcaster Mage .

Asked by Pheardemons 5 years ago

I don't know how the word "Cast" is perfectly defined so I wanted to ask this question. If Leyline of Anticipation is on the battlefield and I use Snapcaster Mage to target Serum Visions in my graveyard at the end of my opponents turn, will I be able to cast it on their turn?

For those who would ask I did not find this information on Gatherer nor in the "Similar Questions" links.

Yes you can. Cards do exactly what they say. Leyline of Anticipation says "...cast non-land cards...anytime you could cast an instant." Flashback is an alternative casting cost, allowing you to cast it for its mana cost. Since you're casting it from your graveyard via flashback, you can do it as though it had flash.
