Transmute is pretty much the only reason to play this card and its not a bad reason. If you already have what you would transmute, then I guess the destroy ability is an alright plan B, but its entirely secondary to the transmute.

it still makes a decent snatch card, if your deck is built right

Well, it'll get you Nemesis of Reason.

It's the only transmute for 5, that defaults it to awesome
Remember, transmute cards are overpriced because playing them at all is a plan B, and if a card's ability is ment to be a last resort, removal is the way to go, because even overpriced, it can save you if it needs to
So, it's a sanguine bond or an Ob Nixilis, or whatever else you want for five, that can kill something in a pinch.

Transmute is the most underrated ability ever. Does no one realize that Transmute allows you to place combos in your hand?

Example: Brainspoil and Dizzy Spell are in your hand. Stuffy Doll and Guilty Conscience are in your deck.

This card deserves a much higher rating, if not simply for being a transmute card, then for being the only one with 5 CMC.

Good cards for Wrexial EDH carries that this card can pull out

Jace, memory adept
Liliana vess
Nemesis of reason
Archive trap

I'm sure there are more. But that seems like a good start. Yay Dimir!

Crucial in a Battle of Wits deck.

It should be mentioned that this is a rare black spell that can kill black creatures.

Destroy a creature that isn't enchanted? Random much?

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
