Strangely, I find this guy better than his uncommon counterpart, Wormfang Crab, and I find them both better than the rare counterpart, Wormfang Manta.

Ugh, I want to shoot whomever started the whole 'strictly' thing with MTG. No, this is not STRICTLY better than Serendib Efreet because they react differently if in the same situation. What if you have no creatures on the field? This would be a dead draw (as it just dies if you play it) while Serendib Efreet would be a welcome addition to your hand after a field wipe. What if you are barely hanging on by one life? Serendib Efreet would be the dead draw as next turn it would kill you.

Sure, this might be mechanically superior because of how combo-licious it is, but it is NOT better in all cases, hence it is not STRICTLY anything.

Champion wouldn't work here, due to a small technicality. Champion works like Prowl, they have to share a creature type. The only "Champion a creature" cards are changelings because, obviously, they share all types. It's sort of like why they don't errata all the old 'lifelink' cards because the old trigger abilities no longer ... (see all)

With three of these out, you could have a whole load of fun. Play one, exile some irrelevant creature. Play another and exile the first drake. Play a third drake and exile the second drake. The first drake comes back, upon which you target the third drake. The third drake leaves, bringing back the second drake, which targets the first drake, which brings back the third drake... and so on and so forth. Now you just need one of those "Whenever a creature enters the battlefield, you gain 1 life" cards and you've got infinite life!

Combos well with Wrath of God and doesn't afraid of anything in Limited.

This is probably my favorite magic card.

For one, it's just awesome, a 3/4 for 3 in blue is hard to argue with, and Champion is a rediculously fun mechanic to mess with. I made a Red/Blue bounce shenanigans deck just because of this card.

For two, no one seems to know about this card, so I got two playsets easily for the cost of a snow cone.

For three, it's one of my first cards, and it's one of the ones I never liked as a kid. Seeing its uses today shows how much I've learned in Magic. :)

Definetly NOT strictly better than Serendib... Serendib efreet doesn't sacrifice itself on coming into play after the opponent responds to it by doomblading your only creature.
That having been said this is a useful creature by all means.

with Onslaught next block... very effective if you exile a BIG morph creature...

I honestly love this guy. Yes, it's not that good, but it certaintly is a good blue beatdown card (or at least, was, during it's time).
Plus, it great with "comes into play" and "leaves play" abilities.

should get Champion a Creature Errata. at least that isnt as wordy

Wow, to me this ability is almost completely positive, the reason? If you exile a really deadly creature, and your opponent(s) wants to kill this card, then they'll have to think twice about using wrath or something because then they'll have to deal with the other deadly creature...

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
