Glimpse the Unthinkable

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...

Glimpse the Unthinkable

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.

Constructed: 2.5
Casual: 3.5
Limited: 3

Glimpse the Unthinkable --

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 opponent's resources?

Constructed Rating: 2.5
Casual Rating: 2.5
Limited Rating: 3.0

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

Glimpse the Unthinkable

By far my favorite Ravnica card to date so far. 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.
