No one expects a bigger inquisition of Kozilek!!!
Seriously though, not quite as good, but can also pull scarier things, like Titans, Birthing Pod, and DoJ.

This card is easily on par with Inquisition of Kozilek.

Sure, it doesn't disrupt their first few turns... that is, unless they're playing Show and Tell and you want to exile Emrakul, Progenitus, or Griselbrand. Or unless you exile a Force of Will. Or unless you exile Golgari Grave Troll. Or unless you exile Karn or Wurmcoil vs Modern Tron. Or unless you exile Unburial Rites (which is basically a 2-for-1). Or unless you exile the Batterskull they just fetched with Stoneforge Mystic. Or unless you exile a Goblin Charbelcher.

And it's not like hitting a Jace, Day of Judgment, Time Spiral, Tendrils, Titans, ... (see all)

the pic reminds me of that zombie from Tales from the Crypt.

In standard the best scenario is turn one nom nom brains, exile elesh norn. Pretty decent I'd say. Just the fact that it's a 1cmc spell that can exile a specific card makes it good.

Much better in standard than people think it is.

Sure it doesn't hit the early threats but it crushes the powerful finishers we have in standard right now.

One mana to stop a Thragtusk, Thundermaw Hellkite, Obzedat, Ghost Council, Sigarda, Host of Herons Restoration Angel most standard playable planeswalkers, and Hellrider before they hit the field and with absolutely no way of coming back.

And that's just the threats, you can take out a supreme verdict and make sure their hand is clear of other sweepers or get rid of an unburial rites without the possibility of flashback.

In standard at least, it's wonderful. Great tool for MBC, 4/5.

Inquisition of Kozilek! Symmetrical design! Except this one doesn't make them discard it.

Compare with Castigate and the in-block Night Terrors.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and predict this card becoming a Magic staple.

Exactly what my discard deck needed: An reliable way to kill any bomb that I find. And at uncommon! Thanks, Wizards!

Edit: @Mike-C, Thats exactly why you don't play this card until the turn before they can cast "Big Nasty X".
As for your comments about the graveyard, please note the word "Exile" on the card. ;-)

Remember, just because a card costs Black to play doesn't make it a first turn card.
Don't fall into the trap of treating this as a discard spell.
It is closer to preemptive spot removal that works on spells too.

The Brilliance of this is that you can wait a few turns to cast it and not give up too much in tempo.
If you hit your land drops you can cast this turn 4 and still put down a reasonable 3 drop.

Waiting those few turns will nearly always be the wise thing to do since it allows your opponent 3 or 4 turns to draw into a legal target, maximizing your potential to grab something worthwhile.
Playing this too early also gives your opponent plenty of time to play around it, minimizing its effect on the game.
