My favorite part about playing this card was explaining to my opponent that my Sunspire Griffin was actually a faerie in disguise. But not to worry, I have had the real griffin in my hand the whole time.

Also, I really want to play this with ninjas. Nope, that Faerie was actually a ninja in disguise. Scratch that, it was actually a faerie disguised as a ninja disguised as a faerie. These kinds of tricks really make my day.

This works beautifully with Æther Vial.
Not only can you easily bring the bounced creature back out at any time - you can also get Faerie Impostor on the battlefield in response to your opponent's spells, so you get a Rescue tech against creature removal!
(Scout's Warning, Alchemist's Refuge, Winding Canyons and Leyline of Anticipation work for that use as well.)


It just so happens that some of the greatest blue creatures to bounce are faeries, too:
Cloud of Faeries, Spellstutter Sprite, and, since we got enough faeries now to make things tribal - Mistbind Clique.
Don't forget the Vendilion Clique. Pestermite and Latchkey Faerie are a nice choice as well.

Those and Faerie Impostor are rogues. So why not try the same with rogues?
With ... (see all)

If we stay in Ravnica, this card's good with other cards with ETB abilities, especially commons, there are actually quite a few in the set (being a casual player, I'm very happy about that).
Such commons I can think about right now are Azorius Arrester, Gatecreeper Vine, Seller of Songbirds.

Runs great in Ninja decks with some Ornithopters.

How in the world has nobody mentioned Spellstutter Sprite?

As a side note, with 2 you get "{U}, increase the storm count by 1." Oh geez.

I just wish this thing had Flash. Your opponent tries to Paralyzing Graspor Arrest your creature, you just play this guy. Supreme Verdict? Bring this in to save one of your creatures.

With Evolve and Restoration Angel you could get two evolves each time and return resto to your hand.

Tartarga, if this had flash it would be busted. Maybe if it cost 2?

The best drawbacks are the ones you can turn into advantages. Use this to bounce....well, anything that has a enters/leaves the battlefield effect. You can play it the turn after Snapcaster Mage to save him for another spell.

On an unrelated note, the flavor implications are amusing. "My Krosan Cloudscraper was actually a faerie all along!"
