Haunting Visions Card Review
The card is definitely similar to, but weaker than Primordial Glyph everyone is comparing it to. Upside of this card is that you can Discover something and still use the 3 mana “discount” on another spell if the one you’ve discovered turns out to be too cheap or not right in the current situation. The huge downside is that the discount lasts for a single turn, so if you don’t use it, it’s gone. Having a 5 mana Flamestrike from Glyph that you can drop on T5 (for example) is one of the reasons why the card is so good – thanks to the 2 mana discount you can play cards ahead of the curve.
I always like Discover cards that let you make your deck more flexible. If you don’t know whether you want to run an extra single target removal, AoE removal, value tool etc. because you face so many different matchups, than running a card like that might be a good choice. It will be weaker than a card which is good vs specific matchup, but it will be better on average across the board.
The card also synergizes quite nicely with Electra Stormsurge in case you need more value (if I understand the card correctly, the discount would stuck up to 6, so you could e.g. cast a free Rain of Toads) – the second card would be random though. Or you could discover more cards to play with Zentimo.
Overall it’s a solid spell, I don’t think that it will be as omnipresent as Primordial Glyph in some Mage builds, but it seems like a great card to play in a very diverse meta, one that you don’t really know what you will need every game,
Card rating: 7/10
