I am both rational and instinctive. I value self-knowledge and understanding of the world; my ultimate goal is self-improvement and improvement of the world around me. At best, I am focused and methodical; at worst, I am obsessive and amoral.
Oh look, a friend for my Force of Wills!
Srsly, NOT. GOING. AWAY. It's going to be interesting to see people coming up with ways of breaking this.

That. Is. Awesome.

I don't know what I'm going to do with it, but I'm sure I'll figure something out.
This card is going to be a $5 mythic tops, but something in me can't help but think it's my favorite card of the set.

As apparently mentioned in the the thread that spoilt it on svenskamagic.com, completely and utterly borked next to Food Chain (lookie here, infinite on Turn 4)!

Need to find a way to break this in Legacy but for the moment, I'm gonna take 38 of these.

EDIT: Nevermind, someone already did.

"Just put +1/+1 counters!" -Wizards new motto

Haha, funny card. I guess they finally decided to use that ability after all. At this point there does seem to be the blur of exile becoming graveyard-2 with this and Runic Repetition, but frequency of this ability will be set-unique I guess.

Edit:
Though I bet, I bet, somewhere down the line this card will get the Mistform Ultimus treatment and eventually spawn a type of card theme. 
so, with ramp, Eldrazi turn 3?

As long as they keep things like this very very limited, hopefully exile won't become graveyard #2.

Some things need to be kept sacred.

I'm really liking this card with Foresight or Manipulate Fate. That's essentially +4 card advantage right there. I'm mostly just glad that there's finally a decent Griffin to justify using Griffin Canyon casually.
Cool card for kitchen tables won't see any serious play though.

Suddenly Skaab Ruinator becomes somewhat playable.
The Mimeoplasm doesn't mind it, either.

I wouldn't go that far. :P Maybe if you're burying them alive and have a sacrifice outlet that generates mana.

Still though, this is really cool. Extremely simple for a mythic, but still feels mythic. Suck it, white removal.
This is awesome!  <3  Finally a griffin that's actually good!  I mean, Retaliator Griffin was neat but hard to play.

Also, this is a card they couldn't possibly have printed until they changed the wording to "exile."  I mean, it could work, but it'd be hard to word properly.  I imagine there'd be an issue with casual players trying to cast it from their collections.
MWAHAHAHA!!! And now, presenting ! This guy is gonna be broken somewhere, just need to find out exactly where. Maybe the championing mechanic back in.... I'm not quite sure but i've seen it around. Also, just hit me: Skaab support (can exile from grave as whatever skaabs ability, bring back next turn). would also be hilarious with Back From The Brink. Also quick question: does this do anything special with Knowledge Pool?
B/u Extirpate/Griffin?

Run 4xExtirpates, 4xSurgical Extractions, and 4xGriffins. Extirpates/Extractions for disruption first and foremost, but the first Griffin to hit the graveyard gets exiled with an Extirpate/Extraction and tutors up three more. Ever running low on griffins? Do it again and return them to your "hand".

The more I'm think about it, the more I'm thinking this won't just be a $5 mythic. Even if just because of jerks like me. In any case, they'll be cheap at release and I'm picking up 4x anyway.

Girls won't know what to do 'bout my Chrome Moxen...

Semblance Anvil finds a home?

Edit: I might actually do this if I was interested in making $400+ casual decks. :P

Edit 2: Re-Editted: Heck, let's really break the bank and add some Snapcaster Mages and Entombs.

Your right it won't just be a 5$ mythic it will be a 2$ mythic.

S'pretty cool. Not sure if I quite like it at mythic but probably had to be this way.
Yay, a good griffin to play with my Griffin Riders.

The summon from exile ability is appropriate at mythic.  Don't want that to appear too frequently.

I could actually see this being played in some Delver decks. It has awesome synergy with Moorland Haunt, and it's the same size as Dungeon Geists.
Favorite card of the set for me. No idea what I'm going to do with that ability but it's just so uniquely awesome that it's hard not to love.
Hmm... if it hits your graveyard for any reason, Relic of Progenitus would be amusing.



Possibly cool/silly interactions with Knowledge Pool?
great fun card...

this is what I like to see, cool build around cards instead of all the brokenness...

AWOL!!!!!!!
As apparently mentioned in the the thread that spoilt it on svenskamagic.com, completely and utterly borked next to Food Chain (lookie here, infinite on Turn 4)!



Youre using the blue to keep casting it from exile, right, so doesn't that make infinite colorless?

The oracle text says "Add X mana of any one color to your mana pool."

Back from the Brink could be fun, but next to the previously mentioned Food Chain everything else seems kind of sad.

Infinite mana of any/every colour, actually:
Griffin -> + -> Griffin +
Griffin +  -> + -> Griffin +
Griffin +  -> + -> Griffin +
I can see this being abused somehow...

How to autocard:

this is so awesome. so much love.
It's cute, but something seems lacking.

It has applications and I'm thinking of some possibilites.

Moorland Haunt is probably the most practical use for this card. That alone should make it good enough to see standard play.
Well, people seem to think that it might have real potential with the Food Chain combo. StarCityGames had about sixty Food Chain in stock two hours ago and now they're sold out. All the foils are gone too. It'll be interesting to see how this all pans out, and not just because I have a small pile of Food Chain I'd like to make a tiny profit out of.

yup me too. well not favorite-Descendant's Path is first, but i really really like this card. it almost makes me want to play blue because it's so fun-there is lots of exile in my meta
