yeah plummet is almost strictly better...
 
Unless they have that enchantment that gives +3/+3 when a creature is the target of a spell, and they fling it in response to your plummet.  But yeah... pretty weak.
this should be decent in limited, with all the Angels flitting about.
God I hope that's the real name. I am going to have too much fun saying "That's it! You're grounded, mister!" every time I cast it.

I can't understand playing this when I have gloomwidow, the equip-plummet and the enchantment that their flyers can't block. Weak.
so so bad.

You're never going to cast it.

This could've costed and it still would be bad.  I think the idea behind this card is cute and elegant, but they might as well make it bad rather than virtually unplayable...
plummet weeps...
bee sting would have been better !...
Terrible unplayable in limited.

Considering there's just enough reach/flying-hate in the set already, note they still have to make awful cards every set.
Just plain bad.
Plummet doesn't trigger yavimaya enchantress, mesa enchantress, or similar cards. I bet if you looked hard enough, you can find a lot of other cards that would be glad it's an enchantment rather than an instant despite the weaker effect. Even so, it's a niche card that's probably terrible in-block.
edit: oops wrong thread.
Foolish me. Thinking that unlike black, green wouldn't be nerfed because it is an allied color of white...

If Limited gets in the way of printing good Constructed cards... Screw limited
Put it on your Birds before casting Corrosive Gale, make it easier to block Archdemon of Greed when your opponent is about to run out of Humans, get through with your flyers when your opponent's only blocker is a Stormbound Geist that hasn't died yet... sure, Plummet is definitely better, but there may be one or two occasions where this card will do.
They have yet to create a barf-bag large enough to contain my reaction to this card.

"We wlll kill them all."

Yeah, the they could have at least tried to make it cooler.

@mikemearls The office is basically empty this week, which opens up all sorts of possibilities for low shenanigans

@mikemearls In essence, all those arguments I lost are being unlost. Won, if you will. We're doing it MY way, baby.

@biotech66 aren't you the boss anyway? isn't "DO IT OR I FIRE YOU!" still an option?

@mikemearls I think Perkins would throat punch me if I ever tried that. And I'd give him a glowing quarterly review for it.
