Having just returned to the game, I was starting to think that the time of jerky, nickle-dime blue instants was over.

I'm really glad I was wrong. My career in this game was predicated on eliciting groans.

I love the logic. When the 1 point of life loss hits the opponent, it's AWESOME! When it hits you, it's irrelevant because it's ONLY 1 point of life.

I'll keep both this and Unsummon. 4 Jace's Archivists and 8 Unsummons... Hmm....

When I got my box of New Phyrexia. I was very excited. Then I began to open the packs. I eneded up with 9 of these little gems. I am very pleased.

It's nice how the addition of pinging self balances with Unsummon. Yes, it's even more painful for your opponent, but suddenly, everyone's favorite tool of negating removal has a little extra cost on it.

A fun little addition to probably the most flexible cards around. I know I've used both this and Unsummon offensively and defensively, and I still can't decide which I like better. I suppose Vapor Snag is more for blue aggro decks who both want to cause as much pain as possible and don't care about a bit of damage themselves, while Unsummon is more for the combo players who just want stasis until their superweapon is complete.

What's up with all the talk about unsummon? Obviously, this is blue burn, with the side effect of bouncing a creature ;)
