1 pseudo mana that is.

LSV considers this card to be a "multi-format all star" among Snapcaster Mage, Tarmoygoyf, and Jace, the Mind Sculptor. I am inclined to agree.

I keep hearing people say that mono-blue devotion, unlike mono-black, is a deck that plays with weak or suboptimal cards that have very good synergy. This viewpoint is so wrong. Monoblue keeps winning because it plays strong cards with strong synergy. Judge's Familiar is a lot better than Suntail Hawk, at one time a constructed staple in White Weenies. Cloudfin Raptor is about as powerful as Experiment One. Tidebinder Mage is a cheaper Banisher Priest - a superb card in its own right - and alongside Master of Waves, it is responsible for pushing all the green and red out of the format. Even Frostburn Weird is a pretty good creature by itself.

I've heard people describe Counterspell as powerful and Cryptic Command as "versatile". The truth is, it's got versatility and power. People woul... (see all)

Spiketail Hatchling at half the mana, and playable in two colors. Anything but a 5 is a hate rate or doesn't understand magic.

When you sacrifice it to counter a spell, say O RLY?
When you pay the extra mana to keep your spell from being countered, say YA RLY.

This is obviously what Wizards intended when they made this an owl. If you don't think they would do such a thing, maybe you'll change your mind when you see this Plants vs. Zombies reference and this reference to Ceiling Cat/Basement Cat.

Awesome card. Why doesn't it have five stars?!
If this card had flash, it would definitely have five stars. But then it would have to cost more.
