Well, Fish decks now have an answer to Tarmogoyf, besides splashing white for Path.

At least, for the one turn that it takes until this guy gets killed.

Bringing color hate back in a bit more than it had been recently. Very cool

Should see play in every format. What a wonderful Merfolk, even if it isn't a lord.

Yeah it doesn't permanently take care of the creature and dies to removal, but if this isn't killed the turn it is played it will at least stop an attack. Nice answer to Thragtusk, Reckoner, and Voice, because killing them in combat has its drawbacks.

Its tribal affiliation, its cost, as well as its favorable stats make this a deceptively powerful enemy hoser. At the very least, I think this effect is more creative than the one they slapped on Mindsparker. This will at least draw removal away from a more valuable creature or else keep a dangerous attacker out of commission.

Exactly what blue needs: a well costed, on curve way of dealing with Savage Summoning.

Removal that comes on a body - definitely sideboard material.

It's WAY better than Wilderness Hypnotist, at least.

Lets look at what this neutralizes...

In modern: Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Tarmogoyf, Grim Lavamancer, and Deathrite Shaman.

In Legacy: Tarmogoyf, Grim Lavamancer, Knight of the Reliquary, Noble Hierarch, Deathrite Shaman, Scavenging Ooze, and any goblin.

Other pluses include that it's a 2/2 for UU and it's tribal affiliation. It also will trade with Geist of Saint Traft (which might be a negative, but not too bad).

Downsides include that it doesn't stop Delver of Secrets or Bloodbraid Elf (the elf is simply too fast, Delver is too blue), gets eaten by Abrupt Decay and can be countered. Then again, whoever would seriously waste a Force of Will on this fish clearly doe... (see all)

Weirdly low rating. This is going to get played.
