@Laguz: I think there's nothing to be ashamed of.

The key is to have bigger & better creatures or artifacts than your opponents, eg. Deep-Sea Kraken, Kederekt Leviathan, Darksteel Colossus or whatever. Of course, if Braids dies before I put out my critters it's basically game over. Using a Vedalkin Orrery to play it with flash didn't really work for me - if anything it'd be better to play Braids earlier (with High Tide, say) when they wouldn't expect it.

Braids is so cute when she's not brutally slaughtering innocent people <3

I have a bit of a paper crush on blue Braids. I'm a little ashamed.

"Just imagine dropping Emrakul, the Aeons Torn with Braids here; and then using your free turn to drop one of the other titans. And all perfectly legal in Vintage."
-PhyrexianLobbiest

Did you know you can cast Eldrazi? Emrakul, the Aeons Torn requites it to be cast for the extra turn trigger.

This card is an essential card to have out in an Eternal Dominion deck. It still allows you to play the majority of your permanents without actually playing them. Plus, this card paired with a Paradox Haze or two is just awesome anyways.
I give it a 4.5

She sure does clean up nice. Ain't got nothin' on Jhoira of the Ghitu, though.

Braids is a wonderful EDH general if you're willing to make the deck revolve completely around her. And that almost requires you to play blue as though it were green. Although dropping a Mindslaver without worrying about it getting countered is pretty nifty.

The art, compare to the black version, she looks far more approachable and... cute :)

Prophet of Kruphix to flash her in on your opponents turn, immediately drop any creature you can cast. Or just find any other way to flash her in on your opponents turn.

What downside?

I can't give this card enough love. She is in my artifact deck and allows me to drop some pretty nasty stuff very quickly. Give her a Whispersilk Cloakand let chaos reign.

She can do very well in tribal decks that punish other players for not playing similar tribes.

Example -

Anowan, the ruin sage and Olivia Voldaren

Use Olivia to turn Braids into a vampire, then use Anowan to force the opponent to sac their free creature every turn. Meanwhile you are running vamp fatties like Lord of Lineage and Vampire Nocturnus =)

Another example -

Rise from the Grave or Ghoul Flesh + Call to the Grave

Same idea, except in zombie tribal. There are plenty of lords such as Death Baron , Cemetery Reaper , Lord of the undead , Undead Warchief , Adaptive Automaton , and others that can make a deck work.

The basic idea as you can see is to stay in theme and protect your creatures while getting rid of theirs. But I digr... (see all)

This is the fair version of Show and Tell. Why would I say it like that? Well, your opponent gets the benefit first, has a chance to remove it, it costs more mana, and the earliest most blue players can get this out and benefit from it is T5 (T4 but they have to wait), rather than T2 in typical show and tell decks.

Those 2-3 turns and creature vs. sorcery make a world of difference.

@Iceeharmony - Mycosynth Lattice only affect permanents on the battlefield. Instants and sorceries are never permanents. And enchantments or planeswalkers wouldn't count as permanents while they're in your hand. So if you're actually asking a serious question and not just being tongue-in-cheek, the answer is no.
