This was actually reprinted in New Phyrexia as Isolation Cell.

Yay! Blue burn!

Blue is not a friendly color to creatures . . but I don't think damaging the player is appropriate for blue either. It should be more like, counter creature spells unless the player pay 1 or something.

I'm surprised Wizards hasn't gone back to change this card to black, or change it's name to something like "Essence Barrier". This card is a clear flavour violation that has had players up in arms for years. We begged you to reprint a update Grizzly Bears, Wizards- BEGGED you- and you have answered our humble cries. But please, we can't have this!

(I assure you I'm not nearly as bitter as I probably sounded.)

Yes, if they reprinted the card it would be black/white... but this was a favorite of mine back in the day. Plenty of bounce and little fliers made life frustrating for my older brothers.

Also see Propaganda, Slow Motion, even Æther Storm!
