If you like this one, and can splash black, check out Golgari Charm; it has two other possible modes in addition to this.

@ubii: It only taps if the creature is dealt damage to destroy it (rules 2010, possibly earlier). The definition of regeneration is "Regenerate *permanent*" means "The next time *permanent* would be destroyed this turn, instead remove all damage from it, tap it, and (if it's in combat) remove it from combat."

One could regenerate it during their upkeep and use it just fine for that turn until it's dealt lethal damage or destroyed then it will tap. New rules also mean regeneration has to be up before damage is dealt, which is the declare blockers step in combat or "in response" to a spell/effect.

First strike is a problem for regenerators, notice the text removed from combat.

Actually a very useful card when attacking all out, or against the new Wrath of God from Zendikar (which will not have an anti-regen effect) and Planar Cleansing.

Probably more useful with Day of Judgment, because how often can you count on having to deal with that in a format that Future Sight is legal?

I'm not sure if I want to be wrapped in Vigor...

This card laughs at Day of Judgement.

"wrap in vigor" sounds like an inspired condom advertisement.
