Pretty nice little Swiss Army knife of a card. Identical to Funeral Charm, but rated a lot lower--I wonder why? If nothing else, discard for 1 isn't bad.

Better than Funeral Charm because Island>Swamp>Plains>Forest>Mountain.

It's exactly the same as Funeral Charm because it's a color-shifted car. This charm basically shows that, had the early days of Magic gone differently, Blue could have been what Black is now.

ok. why is this rated so low? this charm is amazing. granted the first ability is kind of useless, the others are really nice.
firstly, instant speed discard on 1 manna is great, especially for blue that normally makes a player draw before discarding.

but the real reason this card shines is the +2/-1. this effect alone is incredibly versatile:

=firstly as incredibly effective blue removal. I don't know how many times I'v used this card to kill llowanar elves, noble higherarch's, birds of paradise, ad that's just first turn plays. sure it's not the best removal but in mono blue I find it very helpful to be able to strait kill things instead of playing around with boomerangs and counterspells, the 1 mana especially helps here to kill the things that come down before you have the mana for counterspells.

-secondly the pumping is very nice as well and comes through a lot for game w... (see all)

It's alright, but mostly it's really pretty. Oooooh.

Utility for only U goes a long way, though at the same time the effects are somewhat overwhelming. I like it, but it doesn't really scream "play me."
