Born of the Gods spoilers: Looting Aura from Oracle of Theros

See also

An ancient Greek themed, enchantment-matters set definitely needs a few good prophecies in the form of enchantments. And who better to preview an Aura that allows for a kind of divining than the best expert on the subject, the Oracle of Theros herself? Check out Epiphany Storm:

Epiphany Storm R

Enchantment - Aura (Common)

Enchant creature

Enchanted creature has "R, Tap, Discard a card: Draw a card."

In Meletis, certain oracles are trained to be divine lightning rods, receiving countless visions in an instant.

Looting is one of the most potent mechanical additions red has gotten to its slice of the color pie in recent memory. In some cases, it can even be better than straight card draw, for effects that want to fill your graveyard and/or with formats with older cards that have, say, madness. Epiphany Storm is a great way to get the most effective possible hand consistently throughout the game and for cheap. It's also cool to have in red because of the color's hasty creatures, that can use this activated ability the same turn they hit the battlefield. I prophesy this being a really high pick in many Limited situations.

What do you think of this frenetically card-drawing Aura? Let me know in the comments.
