you might say it has 'limited' use. -wink- nah, but seriously it's pretty bad.

Weak, but I can see its use in limited.

Aether Spellbomb was my favorite spellbomb from Mirrodin, and I had high hopes for the new blue spellbomb, but my hopes have been dashed.

This is a much better card in limited than most realize. Flying blockers are scarce in limited, so this card will usually get one of your creatures through. Using it on an infect creature is good, and getting a card out of it is even better. It also gets you closer to Metalcraft.

Worked well in prerelease, instant speed flying for 0 mana at the point of use is great in itself, and the card draw is a bonus.

Don't underestimate these in limited. But yeah, the old blue spellbomb was much better. They added the bounce effect to the blue replica instead, which is also not as good as the old blue replica.

The flying part can be totally ignored. The only useful thing this does imho is to draw you a card if you sac it to some effect. But it's kinda annoying it requires blue mana. 1/5

New spellbomb cycle is disappointingly weak; with the exception of Origin Spellbomb and, for sideboard, Nihil Spellbomb, they seem useful only for Limited play.

Aether Spellbomb just feels more awesome and has more of a bluey feel
