Well, it seems people have rated this card a 2.

When you consider this card as blue creature removal, it doesn't seem too effective. If the targeted creature isn't already tapped or if it has vigilance, then this is a dead card. In addition, the creatures controller can pay the penalty to get his creature back into the action. For those reasons, I guess I understand why people would rate this card so poorly.

On the other hand, if you use it on your own creatures as an untap and graveyard filling mechanic, I think it can be abused quite easily.

Enchant an Arcanis, the Omnipotent to Sift for 1.

This sucks as removal, but might have worked in any block other than Odyssey.

Combined with Damia, Sage of Stone, it becomes:

1: Untap Enchanted creature and Cycle a card.

Perfect for Tims.

I only play casual and this could be fun combined with Megrim to lock down a scary creature and/or produce pain.
