Very expensive... Great mechanic, it screams blue but most of the time you spend your mana putting it on the field to see it removed. Should be 4cmc for a 3/3 with the same effect. That would make it so you could actually cast him on turn 6 once you got 6 mana leaving 2 mana for negate.

However I expect this guy to be pretty pro in sealed or draft.

This becomes ABUSIVE with Training Grounds.

Could net a boatload of card advantage if it stays alive, which is a big if. You would want to protect it with discard, most likely, since leaving mana open for a counterspell would be even more prohibitive. And considering how color-heavy it is, running it in a tri-color deck might be pushing it. Sooo...U/B control?

Regardless, it's at least on par with most dragons. And it kills that damn Walletslayer angel, too, so it can't be THAT bad.

Hand advantage and a high power flier that can take down a Bankslayer. Wewt!

Cool creature. Under the curve. Great visual design.
Will only see casual play at best. Would rather have Sphinx of Jwar Isle.
Too bad, this guy is cooler. 2/5

I know their are better cards out there but I was so excited to get a foil version of this guy. I needed something with a little more oomph then the usual blue flying creature. It's not perfect, but I can't help but feel a little giddy when I draw this card.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
