Remember when Scry was printed in Mirrodin? Every card with Scry had "Scry 2": Look at the top two cards of your library. Put any number of them on the bottom of your library and the rest on top in any order.
Scry was a fixed amount: 2 cards, each and every time. And it seemed to be a one-off deal for one block only.
Then Future Sight came out with a different take on Scry: vary the number of cards you can Scry at one time. Some cards went as low as Scry 1 and as high as Scry 4, and sometimes with other effects after you Scry.
Some wondered if Scry would ever go "Evergreen"; that is, be used so regularly that they can print some cards with the keyword and not include reminder text (especially on Uncommons and higher rarities).
The DailyMTG twitter account spoiled one M11 card today...and it has Scry.
Augury Owl basically takes Sage Owl and improves it. Instead of just getting to rearrange the top 3 cards, you can choose whether or not any/all of those cards should even be on the top of your library. Aside from that "minor" difference, it's Sage Owl in every other way: A 1U 1/1 Bird creature with flying.
I hope you enjoyed the surprise M11 preview! Let me know what you think about M11 introducing Scry as an "evergreen" keyword by commenting below.
Coming tomorrow...a preview of the additions to the Cube! Remember, our next tournament is a Cube Draft this Saturday, so all you need is yourself and $2 for the entry fee. We hope to see you there!
