I like the idea, I love the flavor, but I think the mana cost is a little low, especially with all the hexproof coming out in Gatecrash. It may break aura decks, but it's still only one card. I like it most for the second ability.

The most overrated card in the set. People won't quit playing cards with hexproof because of this, just like no one quit playing Snapcaster Mage when Grafdigger's Cage came out. Use it in your sideboards against decks that rely around it sure (like that new auras deck that's out), but don't expect it to be more than it is.

Second ability is a nice touch though, actually might see it in the main deck of some aggro builds. And it's at instant so you can protect against spot removal if you have to.

Amazing card. Great for ANY sideboard! I bet this is going to make splash on the Pro scene in sideboards too.

I now have a response to asceticism in my thraximundar which is full of kill spells :)

I can't help but feel like the "It was designed top-down!" is just a cop-out so that people like me can't complain that they just destroyed hexproof. Hexproof is what allowed aura based decks to work.

Even if it was really top-down, it still destroys hexproof.

Eh, Hexproof would have been fine if they had also kept Shroud around - they both provide significantly different enough effects to warrant it. Like Indestructible and Regenerate.

Anyways, it's about time there was some way to deal with Hexproof. Graveyard and token users already have to fight off enough hate as is.

I like the hexproof hate. Aura decks are pretty boring to play against given the lack of good sweepers in standard. On a good draw, they can kill you before you can cast Supreme Verdict or Mutilate. Without a Pyroclasm like card, Hexproof isn't very interactive.

I don't like this card, mainly because it uses Yu-Gi-Oh! tactics of making one ability after another unusable. That sucks.

I'm pretty sure this card was designed from the ground up so that R&D can go around going "Look! Hexproof can be worse than Shroud! It doesn't completely invalidate its existence! There are times when Shroud is better than Hexproof! A single time which we artificially made just to say this, but still!"

That being said, this is WAY too powerful of an effect for just 1 mana, and making all of your creatures unblockable for a turn is alone worth 4. What the hell, guys? Seriously, what the hell?
