This is clearly a fixed version / apology for Delver of Secrets, in addition to the clear continuation of storyline. The follow-up element of the card is neat, but the fix will no doubt be too late for at least some of the people who have been smacked around by Delver decks in various formats! Though it doesn't quite have the same take-over-the-match nature as its predecessor, I actually think it's still good enough to at least consider, though perhaps not in formats where Delver is still legal. You're certainly likely to have mana to protect or disrupt at the time you can cast it on curve, and there are almost as many reasons to want spells in your graveyard as in your hand. Flashback may not be coming back in this block, but certainly things like Spellheart Chimera won't mind being in the same deck as this card.
Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 3/5
Limited: 3/5
Multiplayer: 3/5
EDH/Commander: 3/5


Aberrant Researcher/Scary bug thing
Swing and a miss.
Cons- Y'know, i'm not gonna bother writing a score for this, you know how you should feel about this one.
