Fated Infatuation from 'Born of the Gods' revealed

Today Jan. 17, 2014 Sam Stoddard revealed Fated Infatuation, one of the newest "Magic: The Gathering" cards from Wizards of the Coast's upcoming expert expansion set "Born of the Gods," in an article on This rare blue instant spell will Clone one of your creatures and potentially dig into your deck for a vital card.

Fated Infatuation - UUU
Instant (Rare)
Put a token onto the battlefield that's a copy of target creature you control. If it's your turn, scry 2.
(Look at the top two cards of your library, then put any number of them on the bottom of your library and the rest on the top in any order.)

Fated Infatuation's tripple blue casting cost makes it rather hard to play in multicolored decks unlike several recent clone creatures we've recently seen such as Sakashima's Stundent, Phyrexian Metamoph, and Phantasmal Image. Stolen Identity costs twice as much, and has potential to deliver multiple copies. A better comparison would be Crackling Counterpart, which also costs three mana. While you can't flashblack Fated Infatuation under the right circumstances you'll be able to improve the card quality of your next draw.

Stoddard suggests that a full set of Fated Infatuation could find a home in mono blue devotion decks, and provides a list from the company's internal "Future Future League."
