I know those ratings might seem a bit low. After all, the Mirari has a storied history of blowing up spots and not even apologizing a little bit. You’d think when mana becomes a non-issue, this effect would be endlessly compounded. But the rating I give this card is based on having seen Mirari get played a lot, and while it’s certainly awesome and should be a priority when drafting it, snot a table-breaker unless you’re probably already winning.
The issue is with only one spell per turn, the likelihood you’ll play a Mirari and somebody will just blow it up is very good; the chance it will survive long enough to get back to your own Sorcery-casting phase and let you drop a twin Beacons of Tomorrow is even less probable. Unless you manage to jam your deck full of sweet instants, the Mirari might not be the best thing to draft, but then you gotta hate draft this joint or you KNOW your opponent will be getting a double Beacon of Tomorrow off on you.
It’s still pretty bangin’ to get four beast tokens out of a single Beast Attack card, and even duplicating smaller spells like Jilt isn’t bad by any means. But temper your expectations with Mirari.
Overall: Four impossibly high expectations out of five
