Sure doesn't look like a 3/2.

The combo between this and Vapor Snare is hilarious
(given you dont intend to play any more land.)

Take control of a creature, then keep doing it every upkeep.

For any of you that think that this is lightning bolt fodder, then think about the fact that you're playing BLUE, with millions of counters at your disposal, so just throw out a negate.

Oh, and DEPRIVE.

Aaaaaannnnd whispersilk cloak

Powerful effect, high CC, somewhat tough to get to the table but can seriously cause a problem once it shows up.

Great card and awesome for just stealing every creature players have. It's only failing is it's toughness and it will die to any typical damage spell but it's still a greta card. Great in White or Green where you can pump it's toughness up to protect it.

unfortunately, a very easy card to remove. However, ive been running a blue/green with some massive land acceleration in it, and this card works wonders. i simply hold on to a rampant growth or harrow until i get the card, then combine it with a kicked rite of replication. whether you get two lands from harrow, or one from rampant growth, 12 creature steals is a game ender, and 6 is big trouble.

only a 4.5 though, cause you gotta have lands.

Um, yeah. Needs a landfall deck for it to work, but you don't get 6 mana all that often in that kind of deck unless you have some seriously good mana ramp. With that, then this is playable, particularly teamed with living tsunami or vapor snare or something. But even then, you'd have to tap out for it, which leaves it very vulnerable to burn (and if you have enough mana to cast and protect it, then you really should be running rite of replication anyway). But even with thesed drawbacks, 3.5/5, because I can definitely appreciate the fun factor (for you, and annoyance factor for your opponent), and there probably are just enough ways to cheat it into play earlyish and give it some kind of protection as well.
