"Temporal Trespass:I see..."

"Temporal Trespass:I see..."
Virgilio F. De leon Jr. 

There are cards that hint at greater things when one is perceptive enough...so when I found myself opening a booster of Khans of Tarkir and getting what appears to be a trash rare in Ugins Nexus , I found myself asking the question , what card in this block is Ugins Nexus countering , which card would give an extra turn? Would it come out in Fate Reforged or Dragons of Tarkir.

Temporal Trespass answered all those questions for me.And many players saw other things in the card as well.

Players who have Narset as a commander in EDH was happy to see this card as well. They didn't even look at the 11 mana cost or the 8 mana that they need to delve. All they saw was the extra turn and maybe the lady with the large breasts and small armor to match it with. 

People who play with Keranos/ Riddle of Lightning decks however saw another thing...11 points of damage for 5 mana at the end of an opponents turn. A possible end to a long controlled match or if the turn wasn't enough  , the  Temporal Trespass could provide you an extra turn since this is the next card that you would be drawing. Maybe even enough to finish what that 11 point damage started.

Others saw that it was a Delve version or Timewalk , the next thing that players the world over would build decks around to abuse after Dig Through Time and Treasure Cruise. Mono Blue Commander decks which usually pile on spells in the their graveyards now have an added extra turns for their shenanigans. 8 cards is easy enough to build into in decks that are in it for the long haul. 

Ah Temporal Trespass you have managed to rock our world with your Timewalking ways....
