Deep Analysis

Technically, this card actually draws you more cards than even Ancestral Recall. You use one spell and you get a total of four cards out of it. Granted, it costs a total of six mana and three life to do so, which isn't going to be breaking Vintage any time soon; but it also opens up the door to interesting interactions like with Wild Mongrel and Zombie Infestation. It's such a universally useful and fun card that I wouldn't have been surprised to see this in Innistrad, at least until I checked the card image gallery and saw Think Twice. Still, you can enjoy playing with the Duel Deck version any time, and I heartily recommend it.

Welcome back readers today’s card of the day is Deep Analysis a card that will not take Deep Analysis to review get it? An interesting card draw mechanism. In standard and modern it’s unplayable and illegal. In eternal formats this card is quite slow and has seen its day in the sun, when Psychatog ruled formats this card was amazing and heavily played but in today’s world this card really outclassed but still powerful, I don’t foresee this card making a triumphant return anytime soon. In casual and multiplayer it is a solid card draw spell that nets you four cards whenever you need them and can be broken up into payments based on turns making it a nice card draw spell. In limited it would be solid somewhat repeatable card draw making it quite good. Overall a card regulated to casual and multiplayer games, its time has passed but it is still a solid card overall.

Today's card of the day is Deep Analysis which is a four mana Blue sorcery from the Torment set that allows target player to draw two cards and can have Flashback used for a cost of two and three life for a second use.  Six mana and three life, potentially over two turns, to get four cards is a bit expensive yet still playable for Blue.  At this time it isn't legal in recent sets and the older formats have other options for card draw, so it isn't overly likely to be played in many decks.
For Limited, whether the Duel Deck or one including Torment packs, this is a solid card drawing option with the slight risk inherent in spending three life.  Definitely worth playing for the advantage and deserves a fairly early pick in Booster.

The card of the day is Deep Analysis.  Lets be honest, drawing cards is always nice.  Drawing cards with flashback is even better.  It costs two less and you pay 3 life.  Sometimes when you're that desperate you can't pay the three.  Thats the only real drawback to this card.  Then again that cheap flashback is also a plus, because you might pitch this card for the cost of an effect.  Essentially you still get this card's effect, at a cheaper cost.
