Eldrazi Displacer
I'm so confused about how these devoid cards count as color pie interpretations. Does Eldrazi Displacer mean that flickering belongs to colorless too because of the activation cost? Is it still a white card because of its mana cost? But it's a colorless card . . . but it requires white mana . . . well, maybe it doesn't matter to flickering decks when it doesn't even require the Displacer to tap. Or to aggressive white decks, for that matter - not only does flickering a creature that's blocking the Displacer prevent it from dealing damage, but they decided on making the Displacer a 3/3 for three!

I don't know why, but ever since last week, looking at the devoid border texture makes the back of my mind itch. I do know that 3/3 for 2W isn't nothing, and an ability that's half blink, half tap-down is a very nice ability. At three mana, on of which has to be that unsettling colorless symbol, it's a bit expensive compared to Master Decoy or the like, but it's useful in many more situations, so you get your mana's worth. A very hard ability to play around in Limited.

You'd think with a name like this, It'd be some kind of mage moving eldrazi around to inconvenient locations, but okay, it's an eldrazi. Multiple applications, many of which are fairly obvious. I'm not going to write them all down, because I don't get paid for this.
