@williamj35: "enters the battliefield" abilities are triggered whenever the specified permanent is put onto the battlefield from any other zone, including from your hand, graveyard, exile, etc...
A card does not have to be cast to "enter the battlefield" as any good Corpse Connoisseur can tell you.

I've heard talk of this guy being playable in Vintage.

I can't say personally whether or not this is a legitimate claim, but the fact that it's being discussed speaks volumes for the kind of power a Revoke Existence on legs has.

Very nice in Death & Taxes Decks.

Beside that possibly useful as annoyance/pseudo removal in T2 with an ok body.
E.g. Eldrazi Green/Monument Elves Decks normally have no removal. Thus a exiled Eldrazi Monument is hard to get back. Vs any Decks with Artifact Creatures as Threats it could give you a few more turn which could be enough to win with White Aggro Decks.

He's pretty great in Limited. At the very worst he's a 2/2 for 2, which is good on its own. But he also provides either an answer to that really threatening artifact that's leering ominously at you from your opponent's side, or a handy way to remove blockers for your aggro weenie deck to swing in unmolested.

He's just a differently keyed O-Ring or Journey to Nowhere with legs. Not a bad little dude.

Incidentally, the idea of stealing a Blightsteel Colossus with him is pretty hilarious. "What's that behind your back? That gigantic, hulking mammoth thing under the blanket behind you?" "It's nothing. Move along."

This + Phyrexian Metamorph + Soul's Attendant = Infinite life.

Don't underestimate him. He might not be the cream of the removal crop, but he fits very nicely in creature-dependent white decks and if you're not ready for him, he'll annoy the crap right out of you.

And with O-Ring... yo dog, we heard you like exiling, so we exiled your exiling enchantment so you can exile the creature that's exiling your exiling enchantment.

Does the Artifact or Enchantment need to be in your hand, or does this card actually SEARCH for Ratchet Bomb from your deck?

Need some help here. Maybe this has already been discussed? This card is used in an infinite life combo that relies on the idea that "enters the battle field" and "returns to battle field" are the same thing.

When a card "enters the battle field' it is first cast as a spell, then resolves, and then, finally, "enters" the battle field.

When a card "returns" to the battlefield it is NOT cast as a spell nor does it resolve: it is already a permanent and is returning.

Therefore: you CANNOT create infinite loops with this card. If you cast a Phyrexian Metamorph as a copy, it will bounce and return, but it's return will NOT count as "entering the battle field," so it cannot exile anything nor can any other card gain life on its RETURN.

Am I off on this? Seems like this deck has been allowed to play in standard based on a misreading of the card.

i don't think this will get much play outside the scars block, but maybe as a sideboard for white decks with no removal options..
