It's almost less than one of the six modes of Cryptic Command (there are six ways to choose two out of four), and at the same cost, yet this still saw Standard play. If nothing else, says a lot about Cryptic Command.

This card is epic when the opponent spends resources to try and punch through your Wall of Omens.

Efficient cost non-land bounce. The draw option is just an extra plus imo.

@AMart83: How does this not target planeswalkers? They are non-land permanents at last check.

Cute, a single-colored nonland-Boomerang which can be played as optional cantrip. Sounds good.

Or, for short, Disperse with a useful buff.

Pretty good, actually. Oh how I miss Cryptic Command already...

This is a great way to stop planeswalkers and ascensions while drawing more cards to find the one you need, its maybe not the most uber card ever, but at 4 mana with the kicker cost its very playable, compared to say deny reality.

As True_Mumin somewhat stated; this is the little grandson of Cryptic Command.
It has two out of the four effects that Cryptic Command could produce, and costs the same amount of mana.
Of course this card compares nowhere near to that of the versatility of it's "Grandfather".
Still interesting that the two cards share some of the same attributes.

It's good that they gave it a kicker cost instead of making it an overpriced cantrip.

I think its funny that this is strictly better than disperse

A very good catch-all spell for blue, drawing a card makes this an attractive option.
