The only reason I didn't give it 0.5/5 is the fact it targets creatures or players. So if I was playing sealed, I might find a place for it, but not a chance outside of that.

Well, Flashback is honestly a crazy good mechanic. I keep undervaluing it. Snapcaster Mage looks pretty god-awful, unless you know 'Wait. Flashback is a crazy good mechanic.'
Other than that, he's a Flash creature....that I guess you can block with....and he doesn't even have flying? Yeah. He'd be broken even at {U} mana more for how good flashback is, if he had flying.

SO, gentle Gatherers, PLEASE BE considerate to Flashback first.....That Said, it *is* still overcosted even for a Flashback card.....but not for an OLD Flashback card. Remember that Drain Life has been a very popular Win-Con for a long time. To deal 3, gain 3, I would Today pay....probably {3}{B}{B}? On a Flashback card....I'm not sure at all what I would cost the CMC and Flashback cost on a Flashback card of this effect today. Close your mind a little bit to the costs, and this Effect IS worth actually trying to win-con with. And that ISN'T true of a lot of effects. In fact, ... (see all)

Olivier Ruel maindecked one of these at Pro Tour Osaka and came in 5th, and you're giving it a 1.3/5? Sure, it's not exciting, but it's a hell of a lot better than any of you are giving it credit for. The mere fact that it can take out two threats makes it worth a 3/5 from me. Just remember: It's not for aggro decks. It's for control.
