Guaranteed 2-for-1 by denying a draw, unlike Hypnotic Specter, which if dealt with in a turn will be a 1-for-1.

Is denying a draw better than discard? It all depends on what's in your opponent's hand. If your opponent has a poor hand, denying a draw is stronger than forcing a discard. Play this with discard spells for a balanced black control deck.

Factoring in the clever flavor text and immensely cool art, this is a 4.5

Big ravenous rats? Don't mind if I do

Absurd lockdown with Skull Collector.
In fact, I might see a deck brewing...Ravenous Rats and Bone Shredder for control, until eventually you lock them down and pummel them.

My brother used to do Vedalken Orrery + this + Crystal Shard. It did work occasionally.

Put Cloudshift on a stick and use it on this guy every turn. Congrats, you've just locked down your opponent's draws.

wow. judging by all these comments, locking a player down with one of these doesn't seem to even be particularly difficult.

Rather enjoyable card in any Black control deck
