Brainstorm replacement for T2

Hello,
I just found out that Brainstorm (even being released on this year's Duel decks) can't be used in T2.

I have a Miracle deck (R/B), is there any good replacement for it? 
That's strange, I didn't know you could play brainstorm in R/B decks...
I hate dogs.

B has the best miracles by far. If you're not using it you're wrong.

Can't tell if Tierdrop is troll or doing it wrong.

In Magic, B = , U =
Index... Ew. Comparing that to Brainstorm is like clubbing baby seals.

Is Brainstorm a good card?

Index is just surch a great card, run it as a 4 of in every B deck.

Psuedo-trolling because the OP made that mistake too. Said he played R/B Miracles.
There's really no good replacement for Brainstorm.  The only library manipulation is Index, and it's godawful.

Wizards really needs to give us some sort of library manipulation.  Even something low-power like Telling Time would be nice.

I don't expect that to happen until delver rotates.

I'd also bet there is an entity floating thousands of miles above us, looking down on the current state of game, shaking its fist like... "Wtf are you doing?! You're getting it all screwed up!". Awkward—to be evolved, and yet still subject to the ladder that is the concepts of the game. In this case, misconception, corruption, and deception. With the realities of each color becoming distorted (through oblivious designers), leading the game to reflect a false state of reality that warps the understanding that other people have about those things. For example, people thinking that white could be anything except pure good. This shouldn't be too far off though, I mean...Magic is designed based on reality after all, so that entity (those entities) should be subject to those things. Anyways, I guess when you're busy doing space stuff you can't always be around to ensure quality control. It's no wonder they choose Garfield, they're so much alike; that's exactly what happened to him and Magic.

No, it isn't even on the banlist.  It was just never printed in a modern set.

I'm aware. I'm also aware that B has no miracles.

This thread is so pointless.


It reminds me of a time when some kid brought a Necropotence-Psychotog deck to an FNM during Mirrodin-Innistrad (pre Dark Ascension) Standard event and got DQ'd.

While felis might be a troll, I take offense at being called one.  I am a helpful and productive poster who tries to get along with people, and I apologize for correcting your factual error, but I felt it was necessary to inform others of the card's legality.

I like to think that I contribute to these forums as well, even if my contributions are of a different nature.
I hate dogs.
It seems that anybody on these forums with a cat based avatar is only about as constructive as a box of kittens. Sure, it's nice to look at... But half the time it's meaningless rubble that everyone already knows about or will waste your time with how adorably evil it happens to be.

And honestly, I think these forums are a happier place for getting people all wiled up over their mistakes being pointed out. Time, and time again.
Always right, 102% of the time.

Wait, you have a cat-based avatar...
