Divination

This is one of those cards that has never been bad, but hasn't seen high-level play either (other than in draft). The effect is perfectly fine, but there are other cards with similar effects and other bonuses - Jace, for example, is a similar card but is reusable. Still, it shouldn't be discounted entirely; Tidings has been popular since its original printing, for example, and a miniature version like this could have a role to play.

Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 2/5
Limited: 3/5
Multiplayer: 2/5
Michael "Maikeruu" Pierno Today's card of the day is going to be a quick one as Divination really doesn't need much said about it. For three mana you draw two cards gaining you a one card advantage and moving through the deck a bit.
This is a very useful card, but with no other effect it isn't necessarily included in many decks.

For Constructed, Casual, and Multiplayer this is a good card to help you get card advantage or to put together an important combo. The only drawback is the three mana cost, but it is a solid topdeck later in the game.

With Limited this should be played in every deck running Blue in Sealed and I have even done Blue as a splash primarily because of the card advantage this offers. With choices like Ponder and Sage Owl in the same set this is a very useful tool. In Booster this can be a high pick in a pack if no major flying or removal is present in your color and a few of these can turn a mediocre pool with few solid cards into a serious threat.

Constructed: 3.0
Casual: 3.0
Limited: 4.0
Multiplayer: 3.0
