Too few cards are made that involve giving the opponent the option of paying mana to do something about it.

I like the style of gameplay that encourages (kind of feels like DragonBallZ or the Priori Incantatem effect in Harry Potter: have a mana/ki battle to see who can pump more power into the clusterbomb you made on the battlefield, thus gaining control of the game, without actually exhausting yourself into oblivion...unless you at least take out your opponent too)

4x Daze
4x Mana Leak
4x Spell Pierce
4x Slow Motion

sounds like a good deck :)

Against a lot of decks that don't run enough land, this is a slow kill-spell with free buyback. They won't keep paying for the dude if you keep tapping it down with another card. This is a very good card.

Running a few of these in one of my current decks, it really is powerful. God does my opponents hate this card when it comes out early, it might be a bit to powerful - it's crazy that it's common.

You don't know the power of this thing until you're playing against it. Many tables were flipped when more than one of these hit the board. Sure it has its limitations, but the fact that it keeps coming back all game totally screws your tempo.
