Glimpse the Sun God is one of the latest "Born of the Gods" spoilers revealed today Jan. 20, 2014 in an update to the "Magic: The Gathering" card image gallery on Wizards.com. This uncommon white instant can be used strategically both offensively and defensively to steal a duel's outcome right under your opponent's feet.
Glimpse the Sun God - XW
Tap X target creatures. Scry 1.
(Look at the top card of your library. You may put that card on the bottom of your library.)
Better to be beneath Heliod's notice than beneath his heel.
Glimpse the Sun God can be used aggressively to prevent your adversary from blocking or as a preventative measure to ward off attackers and stay alive longer. Either way, you'll be able to look at the top card of your library and put it on the bottom if it isn't something you can use to your advantage.
In addition to its tactical applications during combat, Glimpse the Sun God can also help you trigger cards with inspired such as Pain Seer. One place in particular that Glimpse the Sun God could find a home in is heroic decks. You'll be able to completely tap out your rival's creatures while also triggering your heroic creatures such as Agent of the Fates, Fabled Hero, and Phalanx Leader.
If you're playing white in limited, Glimpse of the Sun God is one powerful spell you don't want to pass up.
How will you use Glimpse the Sun God?
