See the Unwritten is a very interesting Mythic Rare. 4GG for a mythic rare sorcery is enticing already – but the effect is more so.
Reveal the top eight cards of your library. You may put a creature card from among them onto the battlefield. Put the rest into your graveyard.
This is already pretty interesting – you can get any creature from the top 8 of your deck. While this is technically a Temur clan card, I can definitely see this seeing play with Sultai and Delve.
But this is the best part of it:
Ferocious – If you control a creature with power 4 or greater, you may put two creature cards onto the battlefield instead of one.
This is fantastic – in a 60 card deck, it isn’t hard to hit two creatures in the top 8 cards.
I honestly could see this card seeing play in a GB Delve deck or possibly in Mono-green devotion in standard. The only downside with playing it in mono-g devotion is that Genesis Hydra immediately dies from being up into play as a 0/0. But if that’s the case, the build may not play Genesis Hydra; might just play Terra Stomper instead.
As far as Commander is concerned, this’ll definitely see play in Dredge decks like Karador, Ghost Chieftain and creature-centric decks like Mayael the Anima without a doubt. Mayael does a even better job as it’ll pretty much always fetch two creatures. I’m excited for this card, at least.
Until next time,
