WOTC card with an R rated image. If you get what I mean... Lol.

Money money money!! Wizards is doing well his work...They know EXACTLY When print their cards.

Stefouch(2015-07-01 10:26)

Unfortunately, Wizards confirmed no Serum Visions in Magic Origins, even if Scry is there.

Sorry guys, I didn't mean to troll you all. Serum Visions is not in Origins. Officially.

WouterB(2015-05-19 11:08)

@Varonos, They announced that july and august promo's would be modern (because of MMA2015).

Coltpeacemaker(2015-05-14 08:48)

This art is worse than the original one, but it is a staple in modern, let's fight for them in the FNMs!

DrakkarHeart(2015-05-13 16:21)

This card is excatly what blue players are always looking for.

hugo87(2015-05-17 12:52)

Hopefully with the new foil FNM serum visions the foil versions of this card will lower their price

DrakkarHeart(2015-05-15 18:33)

Awsome card for blue, it does excatly what it is meant to do in modern and any other format.

hugo87(2015-05-14 11:29)

Simply awesome card to give in FNMs, but the picture is... strange.

nvdwel(2015-05-13 10:49)

FNM promo for August! There is the reprint everyone is waiting for and the art is nice!

thechrom(2015-05-11 17:22)

Needs either a reprint or one of brainstorm/ponder/preordain to be legal again!

Krapulax(2015-05-11 14:41)

do not need a reprint... not all good cards need to be reprinted. Buy them early and that's it.

ArdeXX(2015-05-10 23:22)

Totally agrre with Zollverein, its kinda embarrasing that this card just have 1 edition.

Zollverein(2015-05-10 03:24)

It needs a reprint as soon as possible. Used a lot in combo and control decks in modern.

Osbagen(2015-05-09 16:10)

No reprint in MM2 :\ I expect a slow but steady growth in price for this card. Anticipate should be tested, but this card is far better. If you need this, you should buy it now...I won't be surprised to see this card at 7-8 € before the end of the summer...

Matchy(2015-05-09 14:27)

More demand for this right now than for MM15 boxes. Very symbolic...

Psychatogpl(2015-05-09 02:41)

Im also very dissapointed that Wizards didnt reprinted this in MM2. Maybe it will show up as an FNM promo...

Bomar(2015-05-08 15:05)

I feel dirty whenever I cast this. I have 4 preordains RIGHT THERE IN MY BINDER q-q

hugo87(2015-05-08 12:14)

This card needs seriously to be reprinted in modern. Seriously.

noqxo(2015-05-08 09:45)

This is arguably the best one-mana library-manipulation spell in modern, since it's more powerful relatives "brainstorm", "ponder" and "preordain" are not legal in that format, in order to keep combo-strategies in check.

Fighting the Good Fight: Thalia, Guardian of Thraben

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-08-08)

Modern's circle of best two-drops for each color are well documented: Tarmogoyf for green, Snapcaster Mage for blue, Young Pyromancer for red, and Dark Confidant for black. White, oddly enough, has many people pointing towards the banned Stoneforge Mystic, rudely ignoring the true best two-drop white has to offer in the format: Thalia, Guardian of Thraben. If you've faced off against her, you know how powerful she can be, and this article is devoted to answering the question, "How can we plan around her?"

Dangerous Propositions: Seething Song

Looking at GP Barcelona and the Post-Tournament Metagame

Event CoverageBy HansD (2018-07-09)

Isn't Modern great? Non-interactive decks like KCI and Tron run roughshod over the metagame, and in one weekend, we get five UW Control decks that top sixteen a Modern GP. It's a wild, wild world, and I want to take a quick look at how the direction of the format provided a window of opportunity for the control archetype, how the UW decks took advantage of the opportunity, and what this will mean for the metagame going forward.

Grand Prix Barcelona Tournament Report - Choosing a Modern Deck

Event CoverageBy Andifeated (2018-07-05)

In formats as old, diverse, and full of different viable strategies as Modern, one does not need to choose a deck based on the current metagame. Most competitive decks you may face only achieve about 3% meta-share, leading to almost unpredictable pairings, giving players who try to get an advantage by making smart deck choices and choosing strategies that are well placed against popular decks a hard time. This time though, it was a different story.

Legacy's Two-Cost Cantrips

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2018-04-30)

And yet, Modern does already contain a piece of non-conditional zero-cost countermagic, and while it's not played as much as Vintage and Legacy's signature counterspell, it's been tentatively around since Modern's early days.
