Essence Scatter, Quintessence Condensation

This comment is going to get such a low rating.

So that's what it's like to get killed by M.C. Escher.

I like the art, even if this card is just a functional reprint of Remove Soul.

It is what it is. Just another playset of commons for blue players

I often like to think I've turned the summoning of Akroma into kittens.

Why couldn't they have used the Portal card False Summoning? Name's good, especially if announced in a James Earl Jones voice as: FALSE......SUMMONING!

The name False Summoning is better than Remove Soul OR Essence Scatter in my opinion.

When they make functional reprints of cards they do it for one of 2 reasons: 1) the flavor doesn't match up with the new set (as mentioned in a Daily MTG article for the reasoning behind Cultivate being made instead of reprinting Kodama's Reach, as Kodama's Reach had a name that directly connected it with a different block). 2) They want you to be able to play with more. This was likely the reason they turned Terramorphic Expanse into Evolving Wilds. Yes, there are 3 different versions of Essence Scatter, so 12 copies for certain formats, but in EDH that's only 3 card slots...

So perhaps it was a combination of both reasons: they reprinted the name partially because Remove Soul sounds more like it should be a Doom Blade, but they didn't just reprint of False Summoning so that players who really needed 2 CMC counters in their EDH deck would... (see all)

Isn't trying to solve flavour miscommunications an unphill battle? Why bother when you will always be able to equip your Oozes with Swords, Shock a Ball Lightening, Immolate your Water Elemental, or have your Predator Dragon eat a Wall of Ice. The game metaphor can survive Remove Soul-ing someone's golem. Our disbelief has been suspended. Is it really worth making a "new" card to fix a problem that people have long ago accepted?
