This is limited gold and FAR superior to Ice Cage.

1. It is not destroyed when targeted by an ability, meaning your opponents have to spend a card to remove it.

2. The creature is still tapped when this gets destroyed, so the most obvious cards used to destroy this (creature pumps) do not function outside of destroying this. The only exceptions are Spidery Grasp and other untappers, which I believe are all but nonexistent in Avacyn Restored.

No, it's not perfect and Blessings of Nature or auras will destroy it without wasting a card, but it is solid blue removal. I advise that you always run it if you're looking for a 23rd.

A different version of Ice Cage, huh.

I love it when people pass these to me in draft, repeatedly. I then use them to tap down their beaters and bombs while I swing my way to victory. Easily underestimated, undervalued card for limited imo.

Worse than Sleeping Potion, which is already bad, since it doesn't tap the creature.

This may be acceptable in Limited where creature removal is scarce, but it is not acceptable in any other format--including Standard--where most opponents won't bat an eye at it, considering the myriad of ways to remove it. As for me, I'll stick with Curse of Chains.
