I remember when I built a deck around this, Dracoplasm and Brand.

So I'll take your creatures, attack you, then sacrifice them to Altar of Dementia.
Thanks.

There is only one thing I don't like about this card:

At this mana cost, and it being Blue, haste feels wrong.

I know exactly why it's there, but it being there makes this card play a little too much like the Red family of cards. Also this is an Instant. It is bonkers and wrong for Insurrection to cost half the mana, and be an Instant, in flipping Blue. Blue can get away with playing a low-creature deck, thus enabling to really turn this into almost exactly that.

Imagine if it didn't have Haste. It would be much more Blue and more interesting to think how this might be used if that were the case.

Am i wrong in thinking that this could potentially read "destroy all attacking creatures" in the most hilarious way possible? As in, They swing out, then before declare blockers, you play this, and block each creature with itself? Or would the creatures just cease to be attacking because they are now under your control, in which case it's an expensive fog.

Either way, awesome card.

Borrowing an army is always fun, but my favorite use for this card is surprise-loaning an opponent my army riiiiight before the declare blockers phase.
