Interestingly, this card can get rid of shrouded enchantments on your opponents' boards, if only temporarily...

If you earned enough profit from Phyrexian Etchings, Solitary Confinement, Contamination or Decree of Silence just return it to your hand ready to play it again if needed.
And for the offensive: Drake Familiar can also return all quests an opponent might have.

You guys don't understand this card.

It says return an enchantment, not one you control! While it may be conditional, this card is competitively costed, and allows you to bounce an enemy enchantment. The only problem is you have to take a dive if your enemy doesn't have one.

This is a GOOD card, believe it or not.

Compared to things like Welkin Tern, which did manage to see play (being an aggressive blue flyer), for a blue creature this guy is fine. Of course, it would have been better in its role as an uncommon with flash, but each set is only allowed so many uncommons.
I love the flavour too. Familiars in RPGs traditionally have little utility effects like what this creature has, and the drake varieties tend to be more aggressive than, well, cats or imps or some-such.

Don't bother comparing this to Kor Skyfisher. Skyfisher is white for chrissakes!

@Kryptnyt Nice synergy with Reality Acid. Kill even lands and planeswalkers in blue only!

Also came in the same set as Fists of Ironwood and other "I do something when I come into play" enchantments.

Take that, Bitterblossom! No really, I singlehandedly won a game this way with just 2 Familiars. It was awkward.

What's that? Your Helix Pinnacle has 98 counters on it? Not anymore.

Plays well with Reality Acid

Let's take a moment to look at the flavor text everyone, "Falconry is cool and all, if you're a ***."

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
