  • Caleb Halbrook

    Can someone explain why this is rare? Is it functionally different from like remand or bounce effects?

    • Jalais

      Well for a starter they get to recast it for free, making it just terrible enough to be at rare.

    • Santuli

      You could use it on your stuff I guess? To save it from removal maybe. And maybe double up on ETB effects?

      • Caleb Halbrook

        So this is basically useless in most cases targeting your opponents stuff…like in a control shell this does nothing

    • Kahai

      Do you really want that effect at uncommon in draft? XD

  • Armin Bauer

    eldrazi seal of quality.

  • Jalais

    So I guess this is just a weird way to hide something of yours until you want it again? Couldn’t it have least drawn you a card?

  • Dboe

    Guys it saves your walkers, artifacts and enchantments. This is great

    • Jalais

      If this was in any other color I’d like it, but for three mana in blue, I’d rather protect my stuff with counter magic.

      • Dboe

        It’s also like having 8 of any 1 Walker, just saying

        • Jalais

          Not really, I spose there’s an argument for using a powerful minus and then getting to recast it at full loyalty when they try and bolt it, but it feels janky next to counters.

  • Marvin Sürig

    I need like at least 24. 4 as a playset and 10 more for the case that someone get’s angry and rips it into pieces XD

  • Simone

    i guess this is a blink spell that allows you to decide when the exiled card returns to the battlefield, and a way to kill counter-based permanents (chalice of the void, walking ballista, genesis hydra etc.)
    EDIT: blink, not bounce

    • Marvin Sürig

      It also gives you the opportunity to cast it for free which is nice. It can recast a Ulamog or any other creature with cast trigger. And it saves you the mana. Bouncing your own creature would cost you the casting cost again.
      Faeries can use this as another counterspell or pseudo Hexproof card. Protecting Scion Oonas or the Spellstutter Sprite with this is pretty strong.

      • Jalais

        I think if you’ve already resolved Ulamog you’ve probably won.

        • Marvin Sürig

          maybe but your opponent could’ve snatched the spell from you and got the creature into play under his control or stuff like that.

          • Jalais

            Maybe there’s a home for this, but I don’t see any deck where I’m cutting into my counterspell package to run this. Maybe some EDH etb shenanigans?

        • Santuli

          Not necessarily in edh, at least.

  • Nono

    This is a blue spell that can exile any non land permanent at instant speed for three mana. That just seems wrong. So good. So now a black 3 mana instant spell that exiles a creature is just worse than this? This seems to break the color pie. But I love blue and I want a dozen of these.

    • Nono

      lol nvm I knew I had to be reading it wrong. It’s OWNER may cast it from exile, not the person who cast this card. OK now I kind of like it more because it seems more fair and more blue.

      • Zenbeni

        Owner? Oh, Dubious Challenge and Disperse in the wind? With cast trigger on a big boy?

  • Dboe

    It’s splashable. Also it stops your walkers from don’t due to an attack. I stand by this being a great card

  • Tolle

    Meh, I prefer reality shift.

    • Hedronal

      Me too. No guarantee of them getting a creature with that one, the exiled one is gone for good, plus it’s cheaper. Doesn’t hit any nonland permanent though.

  • David S. McCrae

    Opponent: “I play Phage the Untouchable!”
    Me: “I Disperse in the Wind it.”
    Opponent: “Then I shall cast it from exile without paying its mana cos……..!!”
    Me: Gives opponent *That look*
    Opponent: “Well, poop!”

  • Raven1man

    Just think of all the fun that can happen if 2 blue decks run this and also run snapcaster mages…..wwwweeeeeeeee!

  • Chaospyke

    Such a beauty, Double ETBs can save your creatures from field wipes, can save your other stuff too? whats not to love?

  • Hedronal

    I think the key is to not think of it as removal so much as blinking with stalling.

  • Alexandre Donnart

    Think of it as a blink effect that targets any nonland permanent and delays the return of this permanent.

    Target your opponent’s creature during their end step and they can play it on their next turn, but can’t attack.
    Target a walker to reset its loyalty. End step is also better.

    Target your stuff to save it from a removal.
    Target your stuff to abuse ETB effects just like any other blink spell.

    This is so versatile. Its mana cost allows an easy splash too.

    • Random Guy

      Against targets you don’t control Disperse is better, because it drains their mana. Or Anguished Unmaking.

      Against creature targets you control countless cards are better.

      Against noncreature targets you control, nothing exists yet. So this will be best by far with ETB-enchantments.

      If you have a deck that has creatures you want to target, but also use it as removal, it’s okay enough to see some play.

      • Alexandre Donnart

        That’s why I used the word versatile. This card does everything.

        • Random Guy

          My comment took into account its versatility. The last paragraph is where the versatility actually matters. For the second paragraph it’s the best anyhow, and for the first paragraph it’s the worst anyhow.

          • Alexandre Donnart

            I know you did, but saying that there are better removals or bounce spells than this isn’t needed. We know that.
