I was a little surprised when I heard we hadn't reviewed this card before - it was one of the eye-catching designs when Ravnica was brand new. That Standard environment had a lot of comes-into-play abilities, and people immediately started dreaming of infinitely bouncing Loxodon Hierarchs and Nekrataals. I played a few times with, and many times against, variants of such decks, and they made for some interesting times (and probably still would now, if you have the cards lying around). Value creatures like that don't actually need much help, from this card or otherwise, but it still has its place - you can generate a Whitemane Lion-style effect without actually playing white. There was also the time that people ended up playing Crimson Kobolds, Crookshank Kobolds, and Kobolds of Kher Keep in a storm deck along with this card, which is hilariously epic.

Remember when we didn't have flicker effects, just blinking effects? Yyyyeahhh... Those were dark days. I suppose in limited where pacifism or faith's fetters is a thing, sure. Otherwise.... I can't really recommend it. One of those cards that has to have a deck built around it. Might be neat for a fun deck though
