Whoa, that guy's wielding a dire flail! Hardcore. Plus, that ability's just evil. Slap something on this guy to give him Shroud/Hexproof and laugh all the way to the bank, or until someone wipes the board.

So, either counter him, or your won't be countering anything till you can remove him.
Oh, did I mention you get to remove him at sorcery speed?
Have fun with that.

Though this one is sideboard, it's still going to be a major problem in control v control matchups.

This has to be countered or you'll effectively lose 2-3 turns by gathering a bounce/counter and enough mana to do it together.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned that this card stops Mana Abilities. I'm not sure if that really matters to much because it stops everything else, but usually a card that reads: "can't activate abilities" always puts in: "unless they are mana abilities."

Insane to see this kind of power on a monocolor bear ...

I still prefer the nice, fair old Dosan the Falling Leaf. This bro seems a little too much if you ask me.

As a seasoned Blue Mage, I can tell you that an intelligent and skilled player should rarely have to lose a game. If you let the opponent play their hand, and counter only the major problems, you should be fine. I find that the second and third turn are the most important. What you do with these turns should be pivotal. That being said, I can tell you two things:

A) I like this card. It's a nice counterbalance to blue. Let's be honest- us blue mages sometimes get tired of winning all the time. Nice to see wizards lobbing us a challenge :)

B) Any self-respecting Blue player should be able to deal with this as easily as any other color. For me, there's Mana Leak (if I go first) and Unsummon if I didn't. Problem solved, that is, unless they play a Silence on my next turn. If it happens it happens. Like I said earlier, a blue mage is very powerful- nice to see them hosed, even from a blue players standpoint. Next time someone... (see all)

I disagree with the statement that this "shuts down control." Any blue control deck worth its salt should have some form of bounce & counter to deal with this, and any white/black control deck has removal/creature kill. Red can simply bolt it on his/her own turn, and green probably isn't playing instants besides fog anyway.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
