As others have already pointed out, this is great with Lure or Tempting Licid throw in a Jangling Automaton to get 'er done!

I Agree completely with Wyldblayde about the flavor text. Any flavor text by Ertai is great, and the expression this guy's making on the card fits it well. I have, on at least two occasions, taken over an impressive creature of my opponent's, only to smile broadly and read them the flavor text as though it were my response.

Great with Maze of Ith to save him after he gets blocked.

This is the type of card that makes me almost want to forgive Ertai for sleeping with my wife. But I still can't do it.

A 1/1 with a common ability for 1 mana has become normal, even in blue. Paying one more to upgrade it to a FRICKEN AWESOME ability seems like a good trade to me.

2 Mana for a creature that can steal opponents' creatures permanently?!
Four, please!
(Oh, and four Lure as well)

And yes, Ebony Horse and Maze of Ith help,
but only if you have a way to *force* them to block.
They'll just keep taking hits from him otherwise... which isn't the worst thing ever,
but probably not what you're after if you're playing this.

A very fun card, and one of the many reasons Weatherlight is one of my favorite sets.

I love Ertai's arrogance. The quotes on Tolarian Entrancer, Ertai, Wizard Adept, and the Tempest Counterspell are priceless. You gotta love Ertai! Hell, even the quote on Ertai, the Corrupted is awesome.

This thing is crazy.

Ebony Horse may be useful or maybe not.

Lure or Nemesis Mask, exactly. Also give it General's Kabuto so they can't kill it and you can use it over and over.
