One of the best things about him is that his Legendary drawback doesn't really matter all the much because he activates on entering the battlefield, so he'll enter and do his effect even if he's already out.

It's an ETB ability, at least that's what I get from it. Two words Mimic Vat...

@guitarman71084: Yes, the spell Emrakul could be returned to your hand by this, Emrakul only has protection from colored spells when it's a permanent, not as a spell. Since returning a spell to your hand is different than countering, it would get around Emrakul's uncounterable ability too. See Emrakul's rulings about protection.

The permanent Emrakul can also be targeted by this. When Venser ETB he is a permanent, not a spell. Emrakul won't have protection from it. The same applies to emrakul's interaction with oblivion ring, see http://community.wizards.com/go/thread/view/75842/28910957/?pg=last


That only applies to "future shifted" cards with the special "future" border (i.e. Tarmogoyf).

Works well with the planeswalker: when creature-Venser is on the battlefield, bounce him with 'walker-Venser. Then when creature-Venser enters the battlefield again, bounce him to your hand with his own ability, and bam! recurrable "counterspell". You could even take the time to Wrath the board while creature-Venser is in exile if you want.
Also worth noting that he abuses etb and cast triggers for 2BlueBlue.

I bounce my Venser with Venser so I can bounce my Venser with Venser.

Between Venser, Shaper Savant and Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir you have pretty much an ENTIRE Mono Blue Control deck ON STICKS. Oh, you want Ertai, Wizard Adept too? Well, FINE...just....FINE!

F*** YOU, BLUE!!!! XO

And that was BEFORE Jace, the Mind Sculptor. You could make an entire deck out of "Assholes & Islands" Easily.

@lordof1000mimes: add Curse of Exhaustion to that combo and we'll see if your opponent doesn't immediately concede
