Theros: Beyond Death Previews – Glimpse of Freedom and Sweet Oblivion MTG Arena Zone – MTG Arena Zone

The official Korean: Magic the Gathering Facebook page revealed Glimpse of Freedom and Sweet Oblivion; both are blue spells with Escape to be released with Theros: Beyond Death on January 16, 2020.

Glimpse of Freedom 1UInstant (Uncommon)Draw a card.Escape 2U, Exile five other cards from your graveyard. (You may cast this card from your graveyard for its escape cost.)You can only be free if you accept that there is only one way. Meletis Philosopher, Nicholas

Glimpse of Freedom allows you to draw a card for each time you are able to cast the spell. Comparable to Radical Idea, the key thing to note is that this card allows you to cast it over and over. The most obvious deck it goes into is the Izzet Phoenix or Izzet Draw-Two variations, where you are naturally casting lots of cheap spells and putting cards into your graveyard. Unlike Radical Idea however, you dont get a way to naturally discard Arclight Phoenix.

Whether this card makes such decks more viable in the new Standard or Historic environments is not yet known, but certainly looks like a marginal upgrade over other cantrip spells available.

Sweet Oblivion 1USorcery (Uncommon)Target player puts the top four cards of their library into their graveyard.Escape 3U, Exile four other cards from your graveyard. (You may cast this card from your graveyard for its escape cost.)When memories are painful, oblivion is bliss.

Following on from that, heres the other blue Escape spell that has the ability to put cards into the graveyard. As mentioned previously, Escapes strength is being able to play it multiple times. This card is still probably too slow compared to cards like Merfolk Secretkeeper, but could be a decent addition as a one or two-of in the existing Mono Blue Dredge type decks.
