There are a lot of MTG previews these days, and the Adventures in the Forgotten Realms previews have been no different. It feels like we’re basically constantly being barraged by them for the countless new sets that come to MTG every year now, and whether you like that or not, there are only so many ways to actually preview a new card.
A lot of websites tend to build whole articles around the previews, sometimes with deck suggestions, sometimes with general commentary on how the formats it might work in are at the moment, and whether or not it’ll answer that pesky deck that nobody likes. When it comes to content creators though, they tend to be a little more out-there.
There is no such thing as a coincidence
Now, there’s a chance you’ve seen the inspirational/deeply unsettling TikTok from @grandrisingapp where they start by talking about coincidences, and end with a woman apologising and then yelping. It took the internet by storm, because of course it did, and it was only a matter of time before we started to see it appear as a meme format.
Well, the extraordinarily talented @TeferiMagic decided that the best possible use for it would be to use it as a way to preview their card. You can watch the video above thanks to the tweet (although Twitter compression is brutal here).
Along with the entertaining video, the card itself is also rather intriguing, especially if you’re in the market for drawing lots of cards.
Eureka!Sudden Insight is a six mana Instant that lets you draw a card for each different mana value among nonland cards in your graveyard. We see big old Sorcery spells that draw many cards fairly regularly, but Instants are always worth paying attention to because they allow for the kind of flexibility and resource gain that control decks love.
You can fairly safely assume you’ll be drawing at least three cards from Sudden Insight, which is okay, but you can also try and make sure you get more out of it by playing around with your deck a little bit. It’s not unreasonable to expect to be drawing five cards with one cast of this, and that’s just a huge amount of value.
We’re not expecting this to be a four-of in any Control decks, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see it as a one or two-of in decks that need a good way to restock as the game goes on and gets into those later turns where control decks absolutely thrive.
