I think this card deserves a decent rating, if only because it's bloody blue targeted removal that also messes with dredge or graveyard-based triggered effects, gets around indestructibility, and gives you a more flexible way to deal with non-counterable cards than Mindbreak Trap or Time Stop. Yeah, it's expensive, but unless I'm missing something it's mono-blue's only one-card, targeted, permanent, all-purpose creature removal. You can Icy Prison/Eon Hub something, or Diminish/Prodigal Sorcerer, or Disorient/Twisted Image, but none of those will permanently remove something on their own. (Reality Acid will work if you have the luxury of waiting 3 turns). There's also a few cards like Mind Control, Control Magic, Steal Artifact... (see all)

A bit pricey, but it get's around indestructible and regeneration.

Why are there only two cards in the game with fateseal?

One of about a dozen cards that combo well with Tunnel Vision, which, incidentally, also works very well in EDH. Sen Triplets is a good general for this combo.

4Blue: Target player doesn't see their general for a long, long time.

I really hope fateseal makes an appearance in the near future; it's such a great mechanic, especially against cards like Liliana Vess or Worldly Tutor that put the tutored card on top of your opponent's library.

This card is amazing in EDH. You can put an opponent's general on the bottom of his or her library.

Fateseal is such a great mechanic. Wizards needs to stop with the stupid crap like Infect and Unleash and go back go fun mechanics.

Blue needs to see more removal like this.

Rating: 3 of 5

A bit too pricey to cast when most of the time you're only dealing with a single threat. And the creature would probably have done it's damage by turn 4 or 5. But if you're playing mono-blue control, then you should have enough time to use this before any damage has been done.

What would've been great:
-Target up to 2 creatures.
-Cost of 3Blue

Unfortunately, hexproof and shroud are becoming more common and necessary.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
