This guys stands out in Innstrad for one very important reason: it's a card that decks (of his color) in every format want want to get their grubby paws on. Like, every single one. His low CMC and ability to pretty much let you respond to any threat ever with exactly what you need make him the most versatile card for standard in the set. Once the dust settles two years from now, he's probably going to be the one card that people think of when they think Innistrad.

the Snapcaster (Tiago) is obviously a great card. Many people compare it to other nice 2-drops like Tarmogoyf, Stoneforge Mystic and Dark Confidant.

I'll give him a 4.5. Now I explain why:

The Snapcaster is a great card, but compared to the other ones it is not a real 2-drop. Whenever you play 'em you really want to benefit from it's ETB effect. In Turn 2 you really cannot use the ability due to none Snapcaster Magable spells in your graveyeard. Logically you can't use this before turn 3, unless you have any mana accelerators or free spells. The fact that it isn't a 2-drop let me say that it's 0.5 points worse than Tarmogoyf or Dark Confidant.

A real plus to this card is that you don't really have to build a deck around it (in opposite to Stoneforge Mystic or even Dark Confidant). Surely you need a deck with many good Instants and some Sorceries. The cards you flashback with it are great instant or s... (see all)

I think it's great that Blue finally gets good creatures. Snapcaster does what Blue's already doing; casting spells. Cards like Delver of Secrets on the other hand don't feel very blue at all.

This card is the apex of Blue's power: seemingly innocuous on the surface, but when dug a little deeper, and in the right hands of a true adept at Magic, it's a force more virulent than you can endure. Trust me.

Why isn't he red? :( He's such a red card.

Red would have a lot more viability if it had Snapcaster.

Blue didn't even need snapcaster, it already has delver and a bunch of other ridiculousness. Plus counterspells. Blue didn't need any help getting better!

WOOO!!! Pulled one of these from one of my prize packs from prerelease!! Should I sell it immediately, or keep it for a bit to see how the metagame shapes out?

What do you call it when you have a playset of Tiago Chan's card Snapcaster Mage? 4-Chan.

This needs Unearth so badly... No, seriously, with unearth the epicness of this card could have reached unseen levels...
5/5 no question at all...

Only one of the dark rituals gets flashback...
