At the time of Onslaught, Walls and Legends were still creature types with special rules attached; "Legend" wasn't a supertype yet and the Defender keyword wasn't invented yet. This led to acrobatic "non-wall, non-legend" clauses on many Onslaught-block cards. See Mistform Ultimus, and compare the Time Spiral printing to the Legions printing.

That meant that this could be used to turn opposing critters into walls so that they couldn't attack you. Now it's much less useful.

@Kryptnyt Unnatural Selection is a good point.
Keep in mind though that back then you could choose Wall and Legend, which both came with special rulings.
So this card once allowed you to cast it on an opponent's creature to prevent it from attacking by making it a wall, or - an admittedly very rare case with a second Mistform Mask - allowed you to destroy two copies of one creature by making them both legends.

I hope when Wizards one day decides to print something like this they'll make it a cantrip for Blue.

But... Unnatural Selection.

note that this doesn't mention anything about not being able to chose wall 5/5 also works for taking down/building up things whose p/t work with creature types, and goatnapper i think this is a pretty damn good blue card

looks usable somehow

@ChampionOfSquee- You can choose wall but it won't give the creature defender so won't really help.

There is much better stuff for doing this effect around.
