This card will be in at least 4 of the top 8 decks at the next major tournament. I make this statement based upon absolutely nothing, but that doesn't mean it's not true!

If he doesn't get banned a card like this will get reprinted down the road with better art. Just look at Solemn Simulacrum.

Maybe it's just me, but he shares an uncanny resemblance to Ken Jeong, the actor who plays señor Chang, in community.

Just a fantastic card. Rating this below 4.5 is either due to saltiness or lack of understanding

Consider the following
This+ Twiddle= Deceiver Exarch
This+ Thoughtseize is very much like a Vendillion Clique effectively you pay 2 life to deny the draw, power is reduced and doesn't have flying.
This+Any 2 mana counterspell is like Mystic Snake
This+Cruel Ultimatum is roughly Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur... Well ok, it's not really equivalent, but that's the sort of craziness this card is capable of
And that's just comparing it to successful creatures with flash and ETB effects. Note that the portion of the power 9 that aren't artifacts all have obscenely low costs. So do Lightning BoltReanimateSwords to PlowsharesMana DrainRemand and for tha... (see all)

EDIT: @Enelysios

Look at mtgoacademy's Deck Tech section. Blue/white/red control is in the 4-0's almost every single day. So is Twin-mite and Faries. All of these run 4X Snapcaster Mage. Jund shows up too, but with the loss of Deathrite Shaman, the only 4-of is Liliana (which in my opinion, should also be banned). Dark confidant is up there, but requires your deck be specifically built to use it. Otherwise, Jund has incredibly diverse deck lists, and so does Birthing Pod for that matter, while control is almost guaranteed to have at least 12-20 cards in common with last year's world champion deck. Zoo is almost never represented in the 4-0 or even 3-1's of the dailies. You see Zoo in pro events, but it's competitiveness at these events has more to do with the skill of the player than the ability to look up decks on the internet, otherwise, it would be more represented in dailies.

Abrupt decay is ok, but it is specifically designed to combat control decks, against any other deck, it... (see all)

EDIT: @Hypa_dude: Its not banned because Modern needs it. If the modern format loses any of its powerful control pieces, Zoo and Jund decks are going to turn the format into something too fast and unplayable. Snapcaster is in some ways the Force of Will of Modern. Without powerful control cards, the eternal formats degenerate into the first player to go winning.

Cyclonic rift may be one of the best EDH removal cards, but its not the best removal in the game, that's a joke. Jund colors are where destruction is at in modern. Abrupt Decay and lightning bolt specifically. Green gets the best creatures in terms of bodies. The 2/1 body is nice, but its not why people are running snappy. Wild Nacatl is an example of one of green's beastly creatures. At the time I am writing this control is not faring overly well in modern, its all birthing pod decks and a bit of Naya ... (see all)

Everyone's getting all mad at wizards for printing this. "Should have been red," say some. "Shouldn't have been a creature," say others.

But it wasn't wizards' fault. Tiago Chan designed this card.

Really should have been red. Giving temporary flashback is NOT a blue ability. Even in block we have the example of Past in Flames, and as a further way of throwing it in Red's face, reprinting Recoup in Sorin vs. Tibalt. Give us a damn break and stop favoring Blue so damn much.

A super-powerful card that likely shouldn't have been printed in its current form. Ironically, this remains legal in Modern while the card meant to answer it was recently banned.

Instant-speed Regrowth in blue? I'll take four. Ironic that Regrowth is restricted in vintage while Snapcaster Mage and Burning Wish are not.

@Khazpar: Because having 1/2 stats would make it even easier to break with combos.

Wizards, did you really need to give this guy 2 power? He still would have seen a ton of play with a power of 0, I think a power of 1 would have been fine.
