For me this card is great... Red has not big removals like black or white in his single color, cause normally kills by damage. So, with this you can turn aside big creatures without kill them in a single card. Kill a 6/6 creature needs 2 Lightning Bolts for example, but only one card like this.

For me 4/5

It's part of the Timespiral block, it was strange on purpose. If you're looking at this card and think it's wacky just wait until you look at Future Sight. The block just got weirder as it progressed.

Isn't this the only red unsummon though?
EDIT: Stingscourger from the same set is the only other red card to do that same thing for just red mana.

First card from planar chaos that I ever saw. I immediately replaced all of my shocks for this and never regretted it. The decks I use, I never want to just shock the opponent anyways I'm not the kind of person to put 40 burn spells in a deck to kill someone that way so this card suites me just fine.
The unsummon part is so useful. They sneak in a tombstalker or greater gargadon or use leaf-crowned elder to put a big dumb tree in I just bounce it back and with land destruction, they will never be able to get it back down again. In the right hands, bounce target permanent is the same as destroy.

Exactly a Shock + expensive but out-of-color Unsummon on the same card, giving you more options = significantly versatile card.

It's a less useful shock...or a good way to make big nasty things go away (for a turn).

Weakened Shock + expensive Unsummon = insignificant card.

Just shock on a dual card, because clearly the other one is useless

the "dead" part is exactly a shock. you might be thinking of it being a weak lightning bolt but that wasn't legal when this was printed. Also, red bounce is really powerful, just in case something is in your way that you can't kill.

Guys, remember, the Shock is creature only. Still, this card is...
Odd. That's really all I've got.
