    Atog.

    Sac three Clues.

    Flash in Emrakul.

    Atog Summer is coming.

    • JD Farrell

      I mean, still got to generate 3 clues.

      • EJ

        Or 1 1/2 Clues with Parallel Lives in Play.

      • Minizem

        There are LOTS of ways to get clues in this set, including Tamioys Journal, which combos amazingly with this.

  • JD Farrell

    Nice, major payoff for using Clues – and again, this doesn’t care if you sac them for their own effect or others. Best part is that the card draw makes you more likely to hit something you really want to cheat in to play.

    So I guess Investigate/Clues are the UG limited mechanic this time, with a handful of the effects in other colours.

  • Zombie

    If there turns out to be a way to quickly generate Clue tokens and something that can sac artifacts then this could be the engine of a Tier 1 combo in Standard.

    Time will tell on this one.

    Art’s cool too.

    • Kevan Kramer

      This and Tamiyo’s Journal seem fun. Sac 3 clues with the journal and tutor for you big dude and play him at End of turn. I hope clues deck becomes a thing.

  • MrAptronym

    I am all in on Simic investigate. I don’t care how it turns out power-wise, I like the way this looks. Something about the Investigate mechanic and the way it is being used just resonates with me.

  • Edward

    Oh look. Tamiyo’s Journal just got so much better. Now you use its effect to get a creature then at the end step put it on to the battlefield.

  • ShahrazadMan

    This plus Atog or KCI seems neat. The clue theme is very forced, but i might be able to make something interesting out of it in modern.

  • Mr.Mayhem631

    Is it just me or is this really, really, really good?

  • Arcus Diabolus

    If i build an investigate deck, it will because of this singular card. Might go for Bant investigaton, i dunno.

  • yolksoup

    4 for a 3/3 with some neat ain’t so bad, I’m really looking at the second ability of what combos I can do

  • Dominic Ng

    er… Tamiyo’s Journal

    • MTG fan

      I know, right?

    • Dramon

      LOL Ikr? Awesome combo…

    • Minizem

      Also Confirm Suspiscion (3UU, counter target spell, investigate THREE times.)

  • Dramon

    So I guess Blue-Green will be investigate theme?

    Color combo themes so far:
    Blue + Green = Investigators
    Blue + Black = Zombies/Skaabs
    Blue + White = Spirits
    Blue + Red = ???
    Red + Black = Madness and Vampires
    Red + Green = WW
    Red + White = Angels (and Nahiri)
    White + Green = Humans (we know b/c of Sigarda)
    White + Black = Life gain? (Because Sorin?)
    Green + Black = Delirium

    • Vectis

      There are alot of white delirium cards spoiled, so i think its not bound to certain colors.

      • Mr.Mayhem631

        This is just focuses.

    • TogetherAlone

      Blue red is madness spells

  • Velvet Wurm

    Sacrifice 3 clues, overall about 11 mana or you could play elvish piper and spend 5.
