Temporal Trespass
It took me a long time to figure out what was going on in this card's art. Once I did, though, I decided it was a suitably sinister and scary piece for a card that may end up being disruptive and feared by players. While eight cards is a lot to ask for the maximum delve-related discount, cost-reducing mechanics were made to be abused, and blue is perhaps the color best equipped to use delve (cf. Gitaxian Probe, Hedron Crab, Wistful Thinking, etc). It's risky to discount a Power Nine effect at any mana cost - consider that Time Warp was considered too good for Standard at a mana cost of five.

Michael "Maikeruu" Pierno Today's card of the day is Temporal Trespass which is an eleven mana Blue sorcery with Delve that has you take an extra turn and exile Temporal Trespass.  This is a card that truly relies on Delve to be effective as it can lower the casting cost to three, which is a bargain to take an extra turn.  This can be used in self-milling strategies or just a later game trump card for the major advantage it offers.  Overall a very solid card that will be popular in multiple formats.
In Limited this is a tempting first pick in Booster that is difficult to pass both for the potential advantage it can give you and the risk of letting another player having access to it.  The heavy reliance on Delve and triple Blue in the casting cost relegate it to the later stages of a game, but the power mostly outweighs those disadvantages.  In Sealed it is not quite enough to force Blue as the primary color, but if the pool is strong and makes up half the deck or more it should absolutely be included for the huge advantage taking an extra turn can be.
