There's an argument that highly evocative names
like "Write into Being" that hint at a greater
story should be used on cards that are more
spectacular than looking at your library and
making a 2/2 creature. I would argue that the
potential of using a land, or a red instant, as
a creature is already spectacular and unusual,
and worth the name. In our discussions of the
manifest ability, I haven't yet discussed the
value of fear in strategy situations, but that
value is real. One of the things that makes a
face-down creature useful is that your opponent
doesn't know how strong its face-up version is
(if such a version exists), and when you
generate one using Write into Being after
looking at cards from your library in secret,
your opponent's natural assumption is going to
be that you have an involved plan of some sort.
You can get a lot of mileage out of that.
Today's card of the day is Write into Being
which is a three mana Blue sorcery that has you
look at the top two cards of your library,
Manifest one and then put the other on top or
bottom of the library. This is basically
three mana to Scry and get a 2/2 creature which
is playable, but the 2/2 having the potential to
become another adds value and makes this a solid
card for Blue even at sorcery speed.
Overall a strong variation of Scry that is going
to see play in current formats as it has no real
drawback and adds Manifest in an efficient way.
In Limited this is a great card to have when
running Blue as it is at worst a three mana 2/2
that filters the top two cards of your library.
Any Sealed using the color should include any
copies available and in Booster it is a
reasonable middle of the pack pick or even early
in a weak pool.
