Well designed and stunning art that tells the story that the flavor text that can't fit would.

Shuts down all the toys your opponent shouldn't be allowed to play with: Equipment, Trading Post, planeswalkers. Detain is definitely going to make control decks strong against aggro. All of the uncounterable creatures and spells are a red herring.

I got one of these at the prerelease and while i was sceptical at first, he quickly turned into my MVP of the day. I really think he deserves atleast a rating of four, but i guess people dont like him because of that 1 toughness.

Ill give him a 5/5 though, just because he was brutal at the prerelase and because of the art. So beatifull and yet epic.

This creature could really mess up opponent's strategy, given that it detain any protective/combo permanent your opponent has.

My absolute favorite detainer. How can you argue with an aggressive flying body that helps maintain board control for the turn it comes in? Obviously it's going to be weak to burn, but they reprinted Dispel for a reason, didn't they? If/when I build an Azorius-themed deck, this guy's going to be my most-desired draw.

Why 1 toughness?
1 toughness Why?
As great as it is - I cant help but think that all too often its going to be held back, by some lowly spirit or bird token. - Oh well can't win them all.
Still looks cool and is cool, if only for its detain ability - that's (nonland permamnent) people.
Just hope that 1 toughness doesn't prove to be too much hindrance.

Amazing. He's also, beside the Archon, the only Azorius card that can detain a NONLAND permanent. Artifact, Planeswalker, ENCHANTMENT.
I have a fun Azorius deck in mind, splashing red. And this guy is going to be bouncing a lot to help keep down the non-creature threats I can't deal with.

this guy is a superstar!

so many reasons to play this guy. hes a human so he pumps Champion of the Parish AND helps him push damage through.
shuts down artifacts/equipment or planeswalker for a turn.
and to top it off hes a 3 powered flier who can push through Delver level damage if left unchecked.

i pulled one in pre-release and a second in my box, i found one more for a buck at the local shop... looks like this one will be a tough one to get ahold of.

I was wary of the 1 toughness...then I remembered that Gut Shot is gone. Very nasty card.
