Future Sight
This is a very fun card to play with. This card can also be an impressive tool to gaining massive card advantage. My favorite use of this card, limited or constructed, is in a blue/red deck. This card's best use is in decks with lots of cheap to cast cards. The fatal flaw is that Future Sight is itself rather difficult to cast. Triple colored casting cost is nothing to screw around with. In a limited deck, you need nine blue mana sources before you can realistically expect to cast this card. In a constructed deck, you will need 14-16 blue sources to make this card really work for you.

Future Sight --

When this card came out, I knew a ton of guys who were trying to show how abusive it could be, but it always seemed to me that Future Sight wasn't *quite* good enough to make the cut into most decks. I won't complain about it too much, but the slots you use on Future Sight can usually just be filled with something better.

In limited play, this card does provide you with a limited form of card advantage, which is never a bad thing to have on your side of the table. I would say that it should probably see play if you were in heavy blue and didn't have a lot of great options, but it definitely doesn't warrant a first pick.

Future Sight

Honestly, a very playable card. It basically always adds an extra card to your hand. And if there is a land on top, it's like having 2 extra cards in hand. Blue is a color that REALLY appreciates card advantage, and that is what Future Sight does for you. Its one negative is that it is pretty heavily costed at 5 mana - one thing that Blue does not like is tapping out, and that means that they would have to wait to play Future Sight until...sometime in the farther future, probably not turn 5.

In casual, it's a useful card if you're playing Blue and have a deck that can stall a bit so you can get it out. In limited, it's a bit late, but could still be useful.
