- use it to bring lands back to your hand, which you gave to your opponent, like with Vedalken Plotter
- use it to destroy auras on lands. Fertile Ground or genju of the cedars on lands of opponents, or stuff like blight on lands of yours.
- powerful if your opponent uses lands which have some negative effect when coming into play (Azorius Chancery, Lotus Vale, Kjeldoran Outpost)
- use it to bounce lands that do something with counters (Dark Depths, Calciform Pools)
- use it to reset cards of yourself that come into play with some positive effect (Llanowar Reborn)
- use it to reduce it's own mana cost (if you got no land in hand already). play it, return a tapped land to your hand, and replay the land, making this guy costing just 3 mana (or even less if you use lands that prod... (see all)

{U}{U} - Return target permanent to owner's hand

{1}{U} - 2/1 flier

Sounds fair to me. Most 2/1 fliers for {1}{U} also have a downside too, and this doesn't.

This guys is kinda fun in a flicker deck I made with Black Vise. Land is the most reliable thing to bounce if I'm trying to fill their hand - can only play one a turn. Combined with a Deadeye Navigator or Conjurer's Closet it's pretty obnoxious

But overall. Not great

So close to being amazing. Another point in P/ T could go a long way, but what really kola it is the 4cmc. Too many better 4cmc cards in blue, in any format. Great with Cloudshift, though, or Restoration Angel.

It's target land not permanent and it's not instant speed. Plus that's not how magic works - there's an advantage to being able to play your cards sooner rather than later. That's why this is a bad card.
There's also many blue or multicolour 4 drops that are much better. 4 and 5 are when some incredibly powerful stuff starts coming out (Cryptic Command for example).
