... and/or Cloudshift.

@ Phage123: Sorry, that doesn't quite work. It reads creatures, not creature CARDS, and creatures are creature CARDS while in a graveyard. So you're actually going to look for something more like Disentomb, which returns a creature card from your graveyard to your hand.

Very undervalued and versatile card. Saves your creatures from being destroyed, returns undying creatures with counters on them so you can play them again, gains back control of creatures stolen by your opponent, and combos well with ETB creatures. Had a couple in a BUW deck I made in a sealed deck tourney. Pairs well with the likes of: Unhallowed Cathar, Niblis of the Mist, Stormbound Geist (or any undying creature), Farbog Boneflinger, and Archdemon of Greed (if you run out of humans to sacrifice) ...among many others. The inexpensive flashback cost is a bonus. Great card in limited.

Can drive someone using a creature burn deck crazy when you just keep on snapping your creatures back into your hand. One of my friends ended up wasting about four Flame Slashes on a Drogskol Captain. Hilarity ensued.

I use this card with Chancellor of the spires.

"The card reads "return target creature you own to your hand" but does not specify whether it must be from the battlefield, or can it be from anywhere? could one return a creature they own from the graveyard to their hand or from the exile pile to their hand?"

"and 'battlefield' is implied by the word 'target' I think. Cards can only be targeted when on the battlefield unless specifically stated otherwise by the card's effect."


Very simply: The only place that a card that says "Creature" on it is considered a creature is when it's on the battlefield. Same with artifacts, lands, and all other permanents--they are only considered to be artifacts, lands, or permanents when they're on the battlefield.

In almost every other zone, they're considered permanent cards. This is why Disentomb tells you to return a "creature card" from your graveyard to your hand, and it's why Xenograft/au... (see all)

"Target" doesn't imply "battlefield", but "creature" does. If it's in your graveyard or library or wherever, it's not a creature, it's a creature card.

Dat perspective.

Also counters mind control effects. Note that it targets a creature you OWN.

@Totema: It's long, sturdy grass.

I love the flavour you get by dodging a Tragic Slip with this.

This is basically like saying... "See that snapcaster? You get to use him three times."
Strictly better than it looks.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
