Best blue creature ever printed, gives you card advantage, ranges from good to "complete blowout" if you play him most of the time. Legacy staple and instant classic. How could anyone NOT give this 5/5?

@Gaffy00: No, it is, and will prove itself to be, the best card printed from this set.

In fact, I am surprised at the 4.3 rating. The only reason it should be so low is people hating on the printing of such a powerful card.

Just with some cheap spells, like Spell Pierce, Path to Exile, Vampiric Tutor, even Lightning Bolt, this card is very efficient. Do not forget that it can come out as a surprise-blocker and basically trade for an opponent's creature, while adding another effect.

Expect to see a lot of these in decks, and very few in trade-binders.

@Justice1337

"Of course, someone's going to come along and say, "But he gets to do ALL of these things! Versamatility, wtf pwnt!" Not really."

Your argument that Snapcaster Mage isn't versatile seems kind of weak to me. Yes, you are limited by the spells in your opening hand and what you draw into, but assuming you draw first, the game lasts for 5 turns, and you're running no additional card draw, you will have seen 1/5 of your deck by the end of the game. This is actually a pretty strict situation as most games last longer and most blue decks tend to run some form of card draw (usually in the form of instants and sorcery).

Also, Dismember actually gives a creature -5/-5, not -2/-2. So with a snapcaster mage it's actually more like a Morkrut Banshee on crack,

This guy seems to be the most one of (if not, the) most hyped cards in the set. For good reason too, it allows you to get double the use out of a sorcery or instant in your graveyard. It will be interesting to see how good he pays of to be.

He'd be good if he had flying, deathtouch and lifelink.

I'll never forgive myself for trading him for a Grimgrin, Corpse-Born...never ever...
Yeah, it was my fault for being stupid, but I wasn't expecting him to be a $25+ at the time!

Now that I'm done sobbing, does anyone else think he looks like Mr. Chow from the Hangover?
