Best non-rare in the entire set. This card is just overpowered, especially in limited. I mean.. In limited many would play a 3/3 flier for 4, but with an effect such as this it is a first pick.. And it can maybe even see standard play as it is really good against many things that roams in standard right now. I mean, just the fact that it forces the opponent to return delver back to hand every turn is reason enough to play it in standard :S

I really like this.Could even be abused with things like Switcheroo and could fit well in a deck with Arctic Aven to beat face.

Hurls away mana dorks and hyper-aggro creatures since they tend to focus on power.

The chronic bouncing is quite nice-could possible be used to refill your opponent's hand in preparation for some black discard action.

"Serendib Sorcerer is going to be this bird's best friend. NOTHING'S safe from getting bounced (unless it has protection from blue--in which case it was safe from the roc already--from humans, and/or from wizards)."
@ SkyknightXi Don't forget protection from white and from birds, since the roc's ability is targeted as well.

I really like this bird's triggered ability.
It sure is powerful in limited, but i think this should also allow some sweet gimmick decks in constructed -
manipulate your opponent's creatures' toughness, or exchange control with your (toughness 2 or less) guys.
This birds' attack can get pretty funky (and it probably won't die in combat if you use him like that).

You can also create a soft lock by using animate land effects (that don't turn them into 3/3s) and bounce those.
Aside from various cards that animate all lands (which are more effectively combined with cards like Goblin Sharpshooter/autoca... (see all)

Wow, this card seems like an absolute beating in limited. Probably one of the best uncommons in the set.

A 3/3 for 4 with an upside at UNCOMMON? Azorius is brutal in limited.
