perfect for bouncing those fourth turn hand of emrakul (or any other early game fatty), just need to find a pace for it in my level deck... not sure how well that would work though

The thing i love about this card, is how it works with counterspells. opponent laid a beast of a creature and i had all my mana tapped? no problem, aether adept, it's back in their hand, they use another turns mana to lay it, and BOOM, it's gone. an absolutely insane common

This + Mimic Vat= FUN

This has become my favorite common in M11 and it's practically an auto-pick for me at this point. It is absurdly good in draft.

It's not nearly as powerful in constructed, but it's still a solid tempo piece and works great in combination with sun titan and venser, the sojourner.

Strictly sexier than Man-O'-War.

Unless you are a person of... divergent tastes.

On constructed: Man-O'-War saw play back in its day, but the UU really limits its deck range. One thing I noticed about this card is that its use drops dramatically when used in convent with Day of Judgment. Think about it. You're losing an extra card, and sometimes saving an opponent's. Wall of Omens avoids this problem because the card advantage it provides actually sticks. This card could easily see play, but it has to go in the right deck.
On limited: Only a few non-rare cards top this in Blue picks: Mind Control, Air Servant, and Foresee (and maybe a Cloud Elemental or Azure Drake in the third pack when you're low on flyers). The tempo advantage this provides is huge; though I guess I don't have to tell anyone else that. This common is just so good.

I love how this card reads along the lines of Flametongue Kavu/aut... (see all)

Great. Even my father likes her, and he knows zip about Magic. He may just be a fan of her artwork, though.

Full points for becoming Venser's Unsummon on a stick.

Sure, there's always the threat of creature-light decks, but between being able to sideboard them out and being able to bounce your own CIP creatures, it seems like you'll almost never play this and think "man, there's nothing for me to bounce." It's possible though.
