This card is beautiful in the new border. That's the only thing that bothered me about this guy before.

I understand that saying "Strictly Better" is frowned upon in the Gatherer community, so I'll just say this...
Wonder is... much better than Levitation in many ways.

Before I continue, Levitation is an enchantment. You play it, and the effect comes into play. That's the only advantage.

Besides that, Wonder costs only 1 blue symbol rather than two, can be Buried Alive to nearly take full advantage of its effect, can come into play and block, and not only is it a 2/2, but it has fliying, making it a more versatile blocker than most creatures.

It can be extremely useful in a token deck as well as a Voltron deck, despite just improving one creature. Only a few effects can counter Wonder's ability (exiling, putting back into the deck (Condemn, Hallowed Burial)) and to finish it off, it comes in a 100 card deck for only $30+.

This card is worth a dollar plus, and rightfully so. It... (see all)

I agree, but why did they take off the gravestone symbol? They left it on a few other cards reprinted from Odyssey block, like the FNM Roar of the Wurm (http://magiccards.info/fnmp/en/90.html). Not a huge deal, just an odd decision considering the precedent.

I'm so glad to have this card in its reprinted form. The art's crisper, the whole layout is gorgeous.

Flavor text seems to suggest that you run him with birds, to give your birds flying.

One of the few cards to look better in the new frame. I miss the graveyard symbol all the time. That's why I drew one on my Vengevine.

@Ferlord: It's only discouraged if it's wrong. "Strictly better" has a strict definition.

@adrian.malacoda: The flavor text was from the Scroll of Beginnings. Wonder is the reason why birds have flying in the first place.
