I hate people who down rate a good card just because they are too mentally challenged to look up what it does. That being said, doesn't work well with vigilance.

One of my fav cards ever, when i first read it i thought it was dumb. than about 10 seconds later i started thinking about it and at the very least it will allow any creature with phasing will be able to attack every turn (which i dont think anyone cares about). But at best it can break any end of turn trigger: a simple Act of Treason becomes permenent control switch (get fancy with Mark of Mutiny or my personal fav Blades of Velis Vel and than a Goatnapper to get a 2/2 body, a Mind Control , and two +2/0 buffs for 5 cmc, not bad for a card that involoves phasing the vast majority of people wouldnt look at twice) Skies the limit from there Splinter Twin , Gruesome Encore (which would work since phasing is not consider entering/leaving the battlefield but it would be treated as tho it didnt exist for the end step trigger, however the exile cl...

Good way to confuse your opponent into conceding because no one knows what Phasing does.

Hilarious with Gideon Jura if you want him to stay as a creature.

This card is much better than it first appears. Beyond simple protection from sorcery removal, I was using it for cheap blue fatties with big drawbacks, like Fog Elemental,Saprazzan Outrigger,and Brackwater Elemental. But then I found Thalakos Seer...

My friend saw the strategy and put a twist on it, incorporating the Veil into a mill deck with Extractor Demon and shadow creatures. I currently run my four in a UW counterspell/swarm deck. Teferi's Veil,Angelic Chorus, and Mirror-Sigil Sergeant is pretty disgusting.

I am sad that this doesn't save your Nacatl War-Pride tokens.

It does, however, save the primary nacatl.

I wonder what the original design intent of this card was? Protect your creatures from sorcery speed sweepers and removal, while being able to sweep the board with them safely phased out? Also combo's amazingly with Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir himself. Outside of blocking, they cannot remove your teferi whatsoever due to the sorcery speed restrictions. And blue has a plethora of cards to give him unblockable.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
