Azorius control? We already have Nevermore, and now they reprint this!! A very useful and versatile card, all for 1 mana.

@Alluceanot: small correction. Triggered abilities start with when, whenever or at (like "at the beginning of your upkeep" or "at end of combat"). Not if. Normally, "if...instead" denotes a static ability with a replacement effect.
Otherwise, you're correct.

Pithing Needle shuts down activated abilities (written {cost}: {effect}) that aren't mana abilities (those that generate mana and don't target, not those that cost mana), nothing else. If you name "slayers' stronghold", it would shut down the +2/+0 ability, but not the 'add 1 to mana pool' ability.

I don't even want to think about the flavor of this card. Someone fetch me a pithing needle.

Pack that, Pack Rat. :)

The anti-planeswalker point made me think of something--why did they not think to reprint this when Jace and Stoneforge Mystic were causing problems?

It's a good answer to a lot of combos. More useful then it seems. You can answer second sunrise combo by naming conjurer's bauble, or one of their win conditions pyrite spellbomb. You can shut off Nivmagus Elemental combo decks t1 on the play. You can protect your valikuts by naming tectonic edge. You can shut off Deathrite Shamans and Lotleth Trolls. Not to mention using them as answers to plainswalkers i.e. Jace, The Mind Scupltor, Tamiyo, The Moon Sage, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Elspeth, Knight-Errant. To be honest, this is probably the best sideboard card of all time, simply because it's any deck's answer to so many cards different cards for 1. The only thing that would make this a better sideboard card is if it drew you a card haha. Also, works well... (see all)

The concept of this card makes me physically uncomfortable...

Yeah, classic hose card. Can't believe they reprinted it.

Don't think it worths to put in the deck, may be just for my sideboard. I'd rather use Linvala, Keeper of Silence if I play white color.
