    Treasure cruise?

    • David Herrera

      Well for this you actually have to have some kind of board state, and it costs a minimum of UU. With Treasure Cruise, you could play it for U pretty much any time after turn 2, regardless of your board state.

        Haha, I know. Just seems like a good draw spell in the right deck. Maybe ornithopter > ornithopter > ornithopter > reverse engineer? In all seriousness, it could work with metallurgic summonings, although it competes with glimmer.

    Pretty easy to abuse

    At least it has 2 U symbols this time

  • Robert FakeLastName

    i think i am sick to my stomach. does cheerios run blue? this might see play next to 4 thought cast. Btw I think there is a reason that they did not reprint ornithopter in the main set.
    EDIT: i saw ornithopter thank jesus.

    Uu draw three cards… well that seems fun.

    What was your first thought when you saw Treasure Cruise? “This card is too hard to enable”?

    Wizards we need to talk about cost reduction mechanics

    • Pandancules

      The lesson from Treasure Cruise was that it needed more color symbols in its mana cost and here we are.

      • Happy The Cat

        with one more. in a set with a card that reads “whenever you cast a spell, untap all nonland permanents you control”
        what could possibly go wrong!?

      • kmk888

        …because Dig Through Time was so much more fair and balanced

        • Pandancules

          Dig Through Time’s effect is significantly stronger than “Draw three cards”. It may need to have a third mana symbol to be balanced.

      ah treasure cruise. Unfortunately all my decks like the graveyard to a degree, otherwise I’d be tempted to run it in all of them that run blue.

  • sansmyhands

    YAY! Though when I first saw the name I was really hoping it was going to be a creature. :(

  • Shagoth

    Guys, getting three artifacts on the board is kind of more difficult than getting threshold. If you put three thopters into play turn one and play this turn two, it isn’t exactly unbalanced to offset the card disadvantage. We DEFINITELY know this card is safe because it’s worse than Thoughtcast. One mana to draw two cards in the same deck as something that’s two mana to draw three. Also Improvise is generally worse than affinity.

      The sarcasim is strong with this one

      • Him

        He wasn’t being sarcastic

      • Shagoth

        I wasn’t sarcastic. Having three artifacts on the field in addition to two blue mana is worth the three cards. I think this is more likely to get banned/restricted in older, eternal formats, not modern and standard.

    It’s kind of embarrassing how awful this makes Tezzeret’s Ambition look.
