By GEORGE! I have found something even better than Blind with Anger

@Mode: You are wrong on two accounts; this will not be able to change an attacker into a blocker for you. Once the creature is tapped and attacking, Grab the Reins does not untap it. You would have to take a creature that is not attacking, and is therefore untapped, which may dissuade your opponent from attacking all-together.

Also, you could never get rid of three creature with this; when you pay the entwine cost there is no time to declare the stolen creature as a blocker before the second effect tosses it at another target. And you cannot take a creature, block, THEN pay the entwine cost. It is payed immediately when you declare this spell and pay the casting cost.

Still, this is a great card that can swing a game in your favour if played properly. One of the better cards from its block (balanced, fun AND powerful).

I know this card may not be the best card in the game, or even close for that matter, but it has definitley helped me get out of some holes.

This card is a must for any control/sacrifice deck, since it can fit either side. It's lots of fun in other decks - I used to use it in my goblin deck, before I got better goblins.

while expensive, this card has saved my butt many many many many times,

hold on to it, it will save you from an opponents threat just when you need it, or you can use it to finish off your opponent

Threaten and Fling combined do a good job.
The fact that it uses Fling's instant-speed allows a great combat trick - you can gain control of a attacking creature and use it to block another attacking one. This way you might be able to hose two of your opponent's creatures without even paying the Entwine cost. Before M10, you were even able to kill a third creature (or damage a player) by paying the entwine cost then...

The artwork is a nice one, too: a Krark-Clan Goblin holds glowing reins in order to fly one of these Drakes which are also seen in Barbed Lightning.

I wonder if anyone has ever payed the entwine cost to Threaten one creature and Fling a different creature.

I'm a bit confused with its ENTWINE rule.

Let's say it's my turn. Use the card's 1st ability to control opponents creature, attack then use 2nd ability to sacrifice that creature. Can I use this card that way?

Slave of Bolas is ALMOST totally better, but it's a two-colored card, and sort of encourages a three-colored deck. I would say of all the variants on this ability available in Mono Red now, you don't need to play this exact one anymore. In it's time, it was quite impressive for Red to have it but not anymore.

Word of Seizing from Time Spiral actually gives Red the upperhand over Blue in the Steal Department!
