In this talk, I will review the current status of theoretical studies of magnetic filed and associated observables in heavy-ion collisions. I will focus on the Chiral Magnetic Effect and discuss new ideas aiming at its unique identification. Specifically I will present the case for colliding nuclear isobars and report on
theoretical predictions and expectations.
