One of very few cards that can give Saltskitter some kind of use (Saltskitter has been rated as the 5th worst monster in Magic's history, according to the comments on it)

Makes a nice little combo with Delusions of Mediocrity and even better with Illusions of Grandeur, when you exchange and then disenchant or bounce the Illusions. A Boomerang does the trick nicely!

Certainly a very fun card, and a much more playable version of the Donate mechanic. 4.5/5 for excellent combo potential and pure fun. Short half a point cause it ain't Black Lotus.

Like jumpenrun suggested: play a bunch of enchantments or permanents that don't do nothing after they've hit the 'field, and you'll be trading useless junk for useful treasures!

I love this card. The uses are endless.

I'm gonna run this in a deck with immortal coil and graveyard removal! >:D
Maybe if I set it up right, I can run a tournament deck with this. :)

"You may" is the best part of this card. If your opponent stops playing better cards you don't have to make a bad trade. Each turn you fall behind in permanent efficiency you get a free upgrade. You're playing against a white weenie deck with obnoxiously efficient creatures? Guess what, at the start of your turn you have a 2/2 first strike, pro black and they have a storm crow. Next turn they play a baneslayer and you trade them for a chimney imp.

If you don't want to run a donate delusions deck you can use global enchantments/artifacts instead (each player/all players/etc). Once Puca's comes out you can trade your globals for your opponent's big creatures or combo permanents. You disrupt their combo (or, if you're lucky enough, steal it for yourself) and you take away half of their creature strength and still retain the benefits from the enchant/artifact.

With a Scornful Egotist, you can steal almost anything your opponent has.
