Oh don't act so smart. You don't even know what an oubliette is.
Do you?
Yes. It's a place you put people... to forget about 'em!

Nice for hiding stuff, especially since it saves counters. Maybe in an arcbound deck? You were going to run four Vault of Whispers in it anyway...

Noticed the Oracle Rulings reads "rxiledd" instead of exiled, lol.

Yes, at face value it helps your cre and all the junk you threw on it, but I suppose what the designers had in mind was the potential super specific plays you can combine with this... this is a kind of card that can be very sneaky... I think they had the right idea, which is basically creating an enchantment that can exile and return card but the drawback is the comes into play/battlefield... that's a big drag, but relative to when it first was printed I'd say not bad... it's cards like this that must have played their part in the games development and progress to some really amazing enchantments out there...

so for the moment, here's to a card that's a bit in exile itself.

Now as for the card itself- the artwork.. ah, this card is doomy looking, excellent feel.

Any card that has "Hence" in the text is a-ok in my book

No one has commented yet that this is one of the few RELIABLE removal spells that black has. It is better to play this than Assassinate, Dark Banishing, etc, because it can target that many more threats more often. Comparing a black removal spell to the cheap white ones is really unfair. This card compares closest I think to Unmake, however the 1BB instead of BBB makes it far easier to cast if you are playing Wasteland or other colorless lands like Mishra's Factory. Also, it gets around protection from white unlike Unmake.

I actually consider it to be considerably worse. Oblivion Ring can get rid of planeswalkers, enchantments, etc. Also, why would you want to preserve their counters and auras anyway? I'd rather them just go the graveyard/disappear in the case of the counters.

This card can be used to exile your only and ostensibly important creature, say Serra Ange or Baneslayer Angel, and then allow you to cast/play Balance (in Vintage, Casual, etc.).

This is the precursor to Journey to Nowhere.
