This is a fun card to think about, but I don't
know if it's very good. In limited play, you
would be extremely unlikely to ever have access
to more than one of these. In limited, this card
would really only be useful at the end of the
game. Using this card sooner would only put you
down one card and give your opponent
opportunities to use cards that might bring
creatures or other cards back from the
graveyard. In constructed, you might have four
of these in your deck, but your opponent now has
sixty cards in his library, so again, I'm not
sure if you are really going to mill your
opponent to death with this card in any case.
Now, if you were playing some kind of WACKY
format where there were no restrictions on how
many copies of a card could be in a deck...
This might bring back Millstone decks. Decking
your opponent hasn't been a truly viable option
in constructed play for a little while now.
Hopefully, this card will help change all that.
Being able to cost your opponent ten cards
immediately is huge. We'll see how it ends up
though. I'd like to see some of those decks
running around. We'll see if the cards mix and
make that a real possibility though.
I think I've ranted about "mill" cards here
before, so I'll save y'all from another lecture.
In short: mill cards are generally bad, and I
haven't ever seen a mill deck that was
worthwhile. However, I will say that Glimpse the
Unthinkable is as good as mill cards will
probably get without being overpowered.
In limited, if you manage to get into blue and
black, I might actually consider playing Glimpse
the Unthinkable. Is it worth playing it knowing
that you will usually remove a quarter of your
Well, the price is right at
only 2 mana for Glimpse, if
you're going to use it. If
you check the spoiler, there
are actually a few other
cards that would let you
reuse Glimpse from the
grave, which could actually
make this a viable option
for decking an opponent,
perhaps. Again, the price
is right, so maybe Glimpse
will find a niche, at least
in the casual realm.
Constructed - 3.5
Casual - 4
Limited - 1.5

I see alot of deck out decks now in the near
future. Can you say restricted or banned for
this card? Thank God it's not an instant, can
you imagine this and isochron? Crazy. This i
think will be the number one card in the set so
if you get one hold onto it for it will surpass
all! It's great in limited and even better in
casual i believe.
