The basic concept of an enchantment that lets you sac permanents to bounce things could work. I'm sure that there's untold numbers of ways to abuse such a thing.

Costing it at 3BlueBlue? Okay, I suppose that works. Though the cost feels a tad high.

What kills it for me is the 3Blue activation cost. I understand that some sort of cost is necessary to keep this thing from getting completely stupid, but four freaking mana AND I have to sac something? BOOOOOOOO.

The card is actually not bad for multiplayer games (like edh). Beeing able to return any permanent to it's owners hand at instant speed is very powerful. Sure, saccing a permanent ain't fun, but if you a have few tokens flying around it dosen't hurt. Also: would you rather lose to some large dragon hitting you, or sac a land or small creature, to bounce the dragon away. Not to mention: if you use it to bounce any blockers (or pacifism or something), and attack for victory, who cares if you sac some lands to achieve this?

Expensive, but I use it in my monoblue EDH deck as a sacrifice outlet and repeatable bounce. The cost isn't too high at all when you have all of the mana-doubling artifacts to abuse.

I'd say it was good for its time. In a mirror match against blue being able to bounce a permanant with an enchantment ability rather than a spell somone could counter is powerful. Cost should be cheaper but who knows what happened in playtesting?
