Venser, The Sojourner can change the target of this naughty little strumpet towards what you need to stop at the time you need to.

And to get your opponent really screwed?. Add a pinch of Telepathy.

Something I like about this card as opposed to others like it, is the fact that the named card stays in the opponent's deck, they just can't play it. thought hemorrhage removes the card entirely, thus thinning the deck while this one leaves the card giving the opponent a useless draw.

On the other hand, it dies easily to virtually every cheap removal spell.

For the pitiful mana cost and enormous effect, 5/5. For being one of the most beautiful pieces of artwork in Magic, well, still 5/5.

@kiseki: That was AWESOME. :D

I looked around and found a list of the super-powerful invitational cards on the MTG Salvation wiki.
Olle Rade - Sylvan Safekeeper
Darwin Kastle - Avalanche Riders
Mike Long - Rootwater Thief
Chris Pikula - Meddling Mage
Jon Finkel - Shadowmage Infiltrator
Kai Budde - Voidmage Prodigy
Jens Thoren - Solemn Simulacrum
Bob Maher - Dark Confidant
Terry Soh - Rakdos Augermage
Antoine Ruel - Ranger of Eos
Tiago Chan - Snapcaster Mage
and Tsuyoshi Fujita designed Gemstone Caverns in a special public vote event.

That might help other noobs who are confused by Chris and Bob jokes on Gatherer. :)

Interesting flavor text for one of the most avoidant cards ever ;)

But 5/5 for also being one of the most versatile, cost-effective cards ever.

I would have gotten away with it too.

Totema: In EDH, it depends on how you use it. I've had some decent success naming my opponents' commanders while I've a Mimic Vat in play - it creates a great amount of political fun, as people need to figure out whether or not to risk it coming back naming something more important.

Plus, I pulled a premium one, and it looks gorgeous. :P

How to Epicly troll someone:

Turn 1: Aether vial
Turn 2: leave mana open, remand what they play next turn
Turn 3: play meddling mage with the vial for what you remanded, then leave mana open and repeat the process

seriously, remand into meddling mage is an excelent move.
