Really? Like.... really? There was a need to bring this back?

You can create a permanent lock with this and Stasis.

There are better ways of keeping Stasis around,
but any method that, like this one,
allows you an untap phase while denying one for everyone else,
is going to win you the game,
and lose you some friends.

Marginally useful in combos,
but a pretty bad card in general.

Wasn't inappropriate for the "gatherer terrible" format, until all the 1.9 rated cards with ETB abilities got voted higher.
Generally, Erratic Portal will be much better, but that card can only do creatures.

Two friends cracking packs of MEDIV.
First guy: "Hey, I cracked two packs and got a Demonic Tutor and Balance. Neat huh?"
Second guy: "I got Obelisk of Undoing and Cloud Dragon... uhm... hm..:"

The obelisk is useful for its ability to take permanents you did and make them not.

I like the art, at least.

1 star? Really? C'mon folks... this is a much better card than you think. It offers great utility in a casual deck.

I run one of these in a mono black deck with Nekrataal, Gatekeeper of Malakir and similar "triggered" removal. It's cheap -- you can drop it on turn one -- and it's the only artifact (as of 2011) to give ANY color an ability only found in blue. In the late game, you can protect any of your creatures, lands, planeswalkers, artifacts and enchantments. And it's reusable. A 3.5/5 at least. Great card in the right deck.

Until I read the oracle I thought the card was really cool. Wish it worked as it read.

If the activation cost was even just two mana cheaper it could be really fun and useful in some casual combo decks.

At least cloud dragon is an easy draftable.
