The idea behind this card is that it sets your opponent back one(-) by exiling one of their creatures; afterward, assuming all goes well, it sets you ahead(+) by allowing you to copy a token. If you play this correctly, and that's probably not going to happen unless your deck is designed for Populating/token-generation, this could be a powerhouse.

All I can say is I hope the Orzhov get Unmake reprinted in Gatecrash.

This definitely saved my bacon in the prerelease. Yes, 6 mana is a lot, but I usually had a centaur token around, and you know what? A flash nekrataal is pretty good!

From what I felt, the format was slow enough to make this a really solid card.

Outside ravnica, go look for Spitting image and its elk :).

Six mana is a bargain for this effect in limited; exiling their biggest threat and, more often than not, getting yourself a token is a huge swing. Not to mention that the token is usually a 3/3.

I agree that this will never see the light of day in constructed, but in limited people vastly underrate this card. Exiling is HUGE in Ravnica with all the Scavenge running around (and a couple creatures have "die" effects, I think; I know there's one bird that draws you a card when it dies) and populate is, potentially, an insanely good mechanic. This sucker one me games by eliminating a huge threat and populating out that one extra flying 1/1 bird or 3/3 centaur or once, notably, 4/4 rhino. Again, jank in constructed; but in limited, if you're playing Selesnya, this is an absolute bomb.

How in the world is this not Selesnya? They're all about getting everyone to listen to the Worldsoul and lose their personal identity and take on a communal identity.

More amusing in a token-based commander deck. Still playable in Limited, obviously.

I haven't gotten to test it, yet, but this card seems totally playable in my Trostani, Selesnya's Voice EDH deck.

This is an...interesting...take on creature override. Bonus points if the targets are (a) mean enemy creature for exile, and (b) copy of that creature from Dance of Many for population.
