Twincast

The great and mighty card from Magic's Golden Age, Fork, has returned. Sort of. Now it's blue and called Twincast, but this is a small difference, brought about by card designers thinking too much and worrying about the Sacred Cows known as the Color Pie or whatever. Twincast is an awesome card, in constructed as well as in limited. However, the biggest downside of Twincast is that the card is, by its very design, defensive. Instead of putting another powerful card in your deck, you have put Twincast, which AT BEST is going to be a copy of one of your opponent's powerful cards. Copying your opponent's Lightning Blast doesn't keep their Lightning Blast from killing you or one of your creatures. However, as defensive as Twincast might be, it is also adaptable. In constructed play, Twincast should never be a dead card in your hand, there should be instant and sorcery spells in any opponent's deck. In limited play, Twincast can help you fill in for a powerful spell that you WISH you had. Copying your opponent's Devouring Greed could give you a chance to win, since your copy of Devouring Greed (created by Twincast) will resolve before your opponent's original spell.

CONSTRUCTED: 3.5
CASUAL: 3.0
LIMITED: 4.0

Twincast --

I suppose if you are playing blue, you should play one or two of these minimum. I won't call it great, especially since I don't think it will ever be too consistent, but it should allow you to pull off a number of tricks. This applies to both constructed and casual. For limited play, I may or may not play Twincast, depending on the selection of other cards I have for my deck. I don't think it would automatically make the cut, but it would receive some consideration.

Hot Hot HOT!  Definitely the 2nd hottest Saviors card flying of my virtual "shelves" at my Website store.  For the MTG younglings, Twincast is the new Fork, but blue takes over the ability now.  Fork in red has obvious applications with its heavy burn contigent.  But Blue has some nice ways to take advantage also, with card drawing, bounce and other control spells that will drive opponent's to steam.  Now the Blue Mages can double up their torture! With mono-Blue making a huge comeback, expect to see Twincast staying in the HOT range.
