I use this in my White or Blue mill deck, but part of me really hates it too. I understand the need for a powerful hate card like this in competitive play against things like dredge, Snapcaster Mage and Tarmogoyf, but this card is utterly meta-destroying in casual. The mere presence of a card this effective ruins the fun of the self-mill and flashback decks that some of my friends were enjoying from Innistrad. It also puts a nail in the coffin of Scavange, an already weak mechanic that was printed alongside an amazing card that happens to obliterate it.

I just loathe these heavily binary hate cards that are getting printed lately. They are not fun, they don't require thought or skill to use. You sideboard them, and since there are only 4 decks in modern you put in whatever answer was printed to to destroy that deck. Getting stomped on by dredge or snapcaster isn't fun either, no, and maybe you need a card this effective to combat strategies like tha... (see all)

Why even bother wasting everyones time with flashback and scavenge if youre just gonna turn around and print BS like this, wizards? At least wait until tormod's, grafdiggers and all that other #$@& is gone before making self mill, delver, scavenge and undying all helpless against white(or chromatic lantern decks). Oh but you gave golgari charm echantment hate plus abrupt decay, so scavenge still gets to do their thing but not self mill or mono black.

You suck for doing this. Again.

Apparently the children of the higher-ups in Wizards were run over by a graveyard that then proceeded to stomp on their newborn puppies, because that's the only reason I can think of to explain all the graveyard hate in this set.

This shouldn't be printed.
Wizards, it's time to change the way to deal with player's crazy graveyard decks. Splinterfright and Burning Vengeance will never see the light of standard serious play...

Run with Energy Field, Web of Inertia, and Helm of Obedience for some fun times.

I really don't like this card at all. It completely wrecks so many strategies, and it requires no thought to do so except to splash white. Tormod's Crypt, though very powerful, was a one-time effect, and it had to be used at the optimum time, requiring some strategizing to get the most out of it, while this just requires you to play it whenever you draw it. If would be a lot better if it was like Oblivion Ring and returned the exiled cards when it left the battlefield, but alas...

I think at this point, they need to print some kind of anti-graveyard hate card. Maybe something that gives your graveyard protection from exile effects?

This card made me want to start playing legacy again. So many of the dominant decks in that format run through the graveyard that this card now puts in check. Not only that, but it actually makes for some powerful combos, as mentioned previously (e.g. Energy Field, Helm of Obedience, and Misthollow Griffin, among others). In standard, I think it is overpowered, and it's a shame that it is rotating in instead of rotating out, but I for one am happy that it was printed.
