It's sort of funny that if you consider modern-day Magic slang, this "Obelisk" is actually a trinket. =)

Anyway, yeah - I remember getting one of these in 5th Ed and having one of my friends want to trade me a Chronicles Nicol Bolas for my Wrath of God and this. I was ready to trade the Wrath - after all, it destroyed MY creatures too! - but I couldn't figure out the power level of this, and I was suspicious and hesitant.

*sigh* I was not very good at evaluating cards...

Sorry, MechaKraken, but the way the rules work, permanents exist only on the battlefield. A planeswalker card in a graveyard is a permanent card, but not a permanent, so you can't use Obelisk of Undoing to put it back into your hand. It can't bring back exiled cards, either.

Obelisk of Undoing is just an extremely weak and awkward card. There are many, many cards that can do the same job far more efficiently.

I figured out how to break this card.

Drop this turn one.
Use any other means possible to win the game however you like.
Make fun of your friends when they lose and you had this out the whole time.

Victory is sweet.

This card is extremely bad, I know, but it still holds a special place in my heart for being the card that first got my girlfriend to "get" the stack when I taught her how to play.

She had just learned the basics of the game and I had tried to explain the stack to her but she didn't understand why it was useful. Then a day later she was looking through a bunch crap rares I had lying around and saw this. She looked at it and said "Wow, this is terri...well, it can save my guys from dying, right?"

So, of all the cards in Magic, THIS is the one that made her understand one of the most fundamental things about the game.
