Protip: This has a hidden text box that reads "Destroy target creature token. Draw a card."

Better than it looks at first glance. An excellent early game tempo-builder.

It was cool to read the comments and discover the token-destruction potential for this card -- thanks, Test Subject! -- but in my experience it has a more boring traditional purpose: this card sees Vintage play in Storm decks, because it cantrips for Blue to bounce your Mana Crypt or Mox or whatever for repeat mana acceleration.

It's the truest cantrip, basically paying for itself by letting you replay a mana acceleration artifact. The net effect is +2 storm, sort of without expending cards (since repeal replaces itself) or mana (since you're getting to play and tap the bounced Mox a second time). Yeah, you're usually replaying Mox Ruby or whatever and getting Red instead of Blue, but this is still as close to perfect cantripping as Vintage Storm can get.

The hilarious thing is, in Vintage you'd always use this to destroy your own tokens, never an opponent's -- nobody really uses cards to give themselves tokens, but decks using Oath of Druids t... (see all)

Tap 1 blue to bounce that Memnite AND draw a card!

A vintage worthy card @ common rarity, whats not to love?

Protip: this is one of the best anti-double-sided cards ever. That means Delver both loves and hates this card.

Powerful. It helps you in the early game (Bounce your Kird Ape), it is a catch-all answer should you tap out for a Keiga and something slipped by, and late game it's card advantage with Sensei's Divining Top (or at least cycles if you're not into tricks).

Friend of mine made a second breakfast deck recently considering the past tournament. I just made a modern land destruction deck, this thing bounces back blooms like no tomorrow plus card advantage! :D

"but it would be really amazing if it could bounce lands too. "
In that case, this card would be:
Return target land to its owner's hand.
Draw a card.

"Broken" gains a new meaning...

It's very versatile, even if Into the Roil is a little better, occasionally (for exemple agains reanimators)... However exiling a token for Blue and draw a card is its best job!

Really good card to slow your opponent down in the start, without losing any cards from your own hand.
