It's a pity that the stolen creature doesn't have haste.

The best thing about it is that you can "borrow" an attacking creature to remove it from combat, and then block something with it (hopefully killing one of the creatures in the process)

U/R madness? It's instant creature snatch, combined with a more or less free discard effect.

""Until the end of turn" makes effects end at the beginning of the next end step."
Nope. If you use it on the end step, the end step checks again for "until end of turn" then it goes away.
For example, look at the rulings on Abyssal Nocturnus

Art thou mad!?

This is a great card, especially since combat no longer uses the stack. Opponent's turn, steal that Darksteel Collosus. Your turn, steal him. It's like that freeloading, giant metal friend.

A very fun, surprisingly useful card. A bit niche and not tremendously stable obviously but worth having a play around with in casual formats, especially multiplayer

You guys! Puca's Mischief. "So, i'll borrow this from you and... exchange it for something other of your's! Deal ?"

I think everyone here is missing something very important.

"Until the end of turn" makes effects end at the beginning of the next end step. If you activate this during your opponent's end step, you gain control of the creature for the duration of your coming turn, it untaps if tapped, and does not have summoning sickness in response to changing owners.

Let me know if I'm missing something here, but it certainly seems that a repeatable, free Act of Treason every turn is something that would be way overpowered.

EDIT: @Kryptnyt
Thanks for clearing that up :D I guess all one would really need is to steal creatures with Haste built in!

@Ladon: As a point of clarification, you have the right idea, but this card has the wrong text. If it had read "At the beginning of the next end step", you could activate it during the end step so it would carry over to the next turn.

Something else to remember when you're looking at this card- not only does the creature not gain haste, it also doesn't untap. So if you're using it to gain control of tapped, attacking creatures, you won't be able to block with them. Best use: gain control of their biggest creature each turn before they attack. That should dissuade them from attacking at all.

This card also combos well with madness, and Barrin, Master Wizard.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
