Good card in draft. It's not efficient for the creature it gives you, but because it has retrace, it's an endgame breaker, because now each dead land you draw on your turn can generate another 5/5 flyer.

kind of ok. a 5/5 flying for seven is so so, repeatability makes it only slightly better than. Also mirrorsheen seems cool at first glance but less so as you consider the meta game implications. I love eventide but think that R/U got shafted except for the dominus of fealty.

I don't think that this needs to be abused... It's a 5/5 for 7CMC, that has a sort of built-in recursion. What makes it solid is that the creature doesn't have anything to do with the card that created it, so even if the opponent exiles the creature you still can retrace the spell. Of course it's a little overcosted, because you pay for the robustness!

I like it very much... I would like to own a couple of this card, because I wuold try to play it, even only one copy...

I would give it 4.5/5

Hive Mind would be great if your goal was to give your opponent the same flyer you just played :P

I just found this card sorting through my cards by color, rarity, and set. Before this, I saw Pyromancer's Ascension and Echo Mage. Not fast, but certainly fun to do.

Retrace was cool, I hope they bring it back someday.

Hmm, it's a sorcery, so I'm pretty sure there's got to be some way of copying this card that completely breaks it, somehow...

Hmm, I guess Cloven Casting could work, or maybe Hive Mind? Or one could just use the good ol' Mirari, I guess.

EDIT: Oh, and Pyromancer Ascension would work beautifully. But that card is nuts, in any case.

@kpwebb12 : Remember, we are talking about red and blue. The colors of Act of Aggression, Act of Treason, Blind with Anger, Commandeer, Cytoplast Manipulator, Dominus of Fealty (in set), Grab the Reins, Overtaker, Roil Elemental, Ray of Command, Skyfire Kirin, Thalakos Deceiver, Threaten...

However, the ... (see all)

that's a funny-looking skarrgan skybreaker.

Red/blue's finisher in Eventide. Not in that it finishes for red/blue, but it finishes red/blue as an identity in that set.
