If you are even a little bit inclined towards being a Vorthos, and you think Venser is cool, I would suggest never reading Quest for Karn. Ever.

Venser + Time Warp + Mnemonic Wall = Infinite turns

I can give my mulldrifter pseudo-vigilance and draw 2 cards every turn?
I can use incandescent soulstoke to cheat my mulldrifter in to play and make it unblockable, hitting my opponent for 3+ and drawing 2 cards?
I can exile a permanent AND draw 2 cards for casting my mulldrifter?

My mulldrifter deck is gonna love this guy.

Venser is my favorite Planeswalker, and that is saying alot! His costing is fair, his ability isn't broken and in the hands of a skilled player can wreak havoc with "enters the battlefield" and "dies" triggers. Whats not to like about him? Currently the only Blue/White Planeswalker. He would totally be broken if his first ability allowed him to exile any permanent, but Wizards was smart enough to make it a one-sided ability. I have won many games by using his 2nd ability and never having to go Ultimate at all. I just wish Wizards would print these Planeswalker Emblems they are referring to. I understand that these emblems aren't permanents but it would still be awesome to have an emblem after the Planeswalker (Koth, Elspeth,Venser) are gone to remember that the ability still exists.

Am I seriously the only person geeking out over his -1 ability? That alone is a single turn win condition... that he can do three times.

People that rate him low are probably daleks or cyber men.

Jus keep exiling chancelor of the forge
then use his -1 ability to beat down your opponent with 1/1s

@steelpommel: How does he remove poison counters? Those are placed on the player, not a permanent. You can't exile a player from the game and return him or her to the battlefield under your control at the beginning of the next end step. Do you mean -1/-1 counters from your creatures or something?

This is one of the only Planeswalkers whose +X ability is much more interesting than the other two. Between, Stonehorn Dignitary, Trinket Mage, Mulldrifterand Oblivion Ring, it's easy to forget I can make creatures unblock-able at any time. ;)

I guess this guy is Venser the Snapper now (does that make Snapcaster Mage the quarterback?) Well, it's great to see this see play again, it's such a fun card. If they ever do an Unglued type set again I hope they make "Venser the Dispenser." :)

+1: Return your empty cup or glass to the barista. Return it to your hand refilled at end of turn.

-1: Creatures you control aren't thirsty this turn.

-8: You get an emblem that says "Whenever you finish your drink, an opponent of your choice refills it."
