Opened up a fat pack today and pulled 2 of these. 4BB for 4/4 flying for blue is awesome enough, and the ability is just icing on the cake. A delicious cake, that is.

Well, in limited it's good, because any 4/4 flyer in limited is good.
In Commander, this is good too, because of the huge splashy spells played there.

In Standard, it might be a bit too slow and random. The spells are there not as powerful as in Commander, and there ar ebetter flying creatures for other constructed formats.

The card is best in Commander decks, that can flicker this guy in and out or copy him, so the ability triggers over and over.

One problem with soft mill cards like this is always, of course, that you might help your opponent, by dumping cards into his gy that he wants there.

All in all, solid but not stellar.

The perfect card for demolishing your opponent's flicker deck. Play it, cast cloudshift, bounce it, mill them again.

I don't get the hate towards this card. It's a MIND EEL

Mindclaw Shaman gets an upgrade with a better body that mills rather than reveals hands... strictly funnier creature type.

Must-play in limited if you can work it. Expensive for a 4/4 flyer, but if you manage to replay it with Disperse or similar you can really work the mill effect, and who cares if you don't get to cost any cards when you do?

A decent card for any Commander deck with a milling theme, like Lazav, Dimir Mastermind or The Mimeoplasm.

As an added benefit, he makes a very, very pretty foil.

5 stars for the cool mechanics, minus 1 star for the lame concept.

Pair this guy with Deadeye Navigator

I can see this maybe being a sideboard card, but for it to be worthwhile, your opponent has to be playing a lot of sorceries, they have to be powerful ones, and they have to be ones that don't depend on an Variable Colorless in the cost. You're going to face a lot of decks where that's not the case.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
