doc Today’s card is the uncommon Arcanist tactic Spontaneous Displacement.

I’ve got to start with the flavor on this one:

“It’s going to get worse before it gets better…Or maybe it’s just going to get worse.”

Maybe it’s just me, but I can relate to that one!

For a cost of 4 with a threshold of 3, you get bounce AND a card play. At a cost of 4, this is more than reasonable. Three threshold will keep it from being splashed in most cases, but if you’re running solid Arcanist, this card has to get consideration for your lineup.

Granted, the free play is based on ˝ the numeric cost (rounded up) of the card bounced, but chosen wisely, this card can be a momentum changer. When I say choose wisely, here’s the “cost analysis”:

You pay 4 to get the effect of Quotidian Assassination (which costs 2), so as long as you get to then play a card that costs 2 or more, you’re ahead of the cost curve and have shifted field presence +2 to your side.

Remember though, you must still meet the threshold of the card you get to play for free.

In limited, bounce is the next best thing to kill. Any kind of board control is always a benefit. Only its 3 threshold is a detractor. In constructed, tech is king!

Limited: 4/5
Constructed: 4.5/5
