This is actually super clever, as I just noticed: you can stick a 2-drop in that position, and when it comes back it'll be far less useful (well, unless it's a lord or something)

At the very least you get some scouting done, as well as killing a draw, but overall I think I'd prefer to use something else.

Pity the name wasn't used on something even more bombastic, like "Target player skips their next turn." That would be both hilarious and totally in the spirit of the Timespiral color pie, which as we all know was...wonky.

I really don't understand why this card is downrated so hard. Whatever you target is gone for some time and if you're using some mill (in which black is second best) it's gone forever. Even when they draw the card after three turns they lose a draw.
In my opinion it's better than Distress and maybe even preferable over Duress in any deck which uses mill (which does not even mean that the deck must include blue due to the many mill-artifacts there are today: Codex Shredder, Ghoulcaller's Bell, Grindclock, Mindcrank, etc.) Also LordRandomness made a good point.

Cool card, overall effectiveness still tbd. As far as I can tell, you get three decent abilities from this single card:

1) you get to probe their hand
2) you get to temporarily eliminate their largest in-hand threat to you (permanently with mill and other shenanigans)
3) they get -1 card advantage, so it balances out like a cantrip.

Also, a defensive black card that isn't creature removal???

Even some of the more bland cards from this set find a way to be unique in some way. This one has great art, and an interesting, not often visited mechanic. Love Time Spiral.
