May add this to my Aurelia EDH deck just for the protection from wraths, with anthem being a nifty side effect.
We need more wrath hate. There clearly isn't enough.

Snapcaster Mage is the best card of all time. How do you deal?

 Boros gets this AND boros charm for wrath protection?  Ugh...  and if the boros player is using wrath effects, frontline medic helps too.
What a beast of a card of a card the idea of having even a restoration angel and a augur bolas blinked is amazing value. Also the wording on the card that it returns on the next combat step is huge, it allows your opponent to have little value out of their turn if they have to sweep.
Another two drop mythic.........
Better yet, this can give your creatures haste.
Hmm. Block with everything, then exile before combat damage. Pop back in to attack, pop out as soon as a sweeper appears. Gruul will still walk all over you if they have any trample, but this can cause major problems otherwise.

Hey- is that Niv-Mizzet trying to avoid being impaled in the artwork?

Sure is.  That was my thoughts as well, so it seems that Boros is going after him.  Also interesting to note is the UG counterspell, with a Simic mage battle Niv as well.

Curious...

I want to like it...a lot. 

However.....it doesn't seem to synergize very well with the potential token-craziness that Boros has to offer.

Having said that, I still think it has a place in my Agrus Kos (AHEM) Tajik Soldier Commander deck.

This one isn't good though. You should be more upset about Boros Charm than this garbage. 
Can't understand why this is Mythic, seriously. -_-"

Agree, it doesn't feel Mythic, but the anthem effect won't be irrelevant, and the flicker ability is pretty cool.

Name and mana costs suggest that this is a spell used against Niv-Mizzet, so the little soilder guys won't be all crispy after the dragon sneezes.

Well.....at least the ones that live through the whole exiling process, anyway...

Interesting in that it allows Aurelia three combat phases. (Attack, exile, attack again, attack again.)

that's all in colors without even trying and using all jank cards

not to mention champion of the parish etc

...

what I was trying to say is it seems mythic to me since it makes that heap listed above quite punishing

it's great with enters the battlefield
it's great with target creature can't block
it's great with detain
it's great with battalion
it's great with souldbound
it prevents board wipe
it pumps

it's a sorcery speed ghostway that gives haste

edit sarnath'd
At end of turn I exile my creatures, they blink back in. Did we really need an affordable blink effect in a standard ruled by enters the battlefield effects!!!???!

I think it returns them the next combat step, so you'd be giving haste to your defenders, which is sub-optimal in my opinion
On the other hand, this can turn Naturalize into a one-sided board wipe for your opponent. Laughing

and.... more love for Thragtusk and reanimation decks

this card seems good to me.
Sure this card is going to do some crazy things but at least they didn't make it repeatable.

I thought because exiling it is part of the cost, you don't exile any creatures if they destroy it in response to you triggering it.
The card itself is quite flexible though. Be it for untap/haste shenanigangs, removaldodging or pseudo-vigilance.
Still - utilitycards shouldn't be mystic. Was wrong for Lotus Cobra, is wrong for this card.

Nevermind, I didn't see the "Exile this enchantment to bounce." Thought it could be done at any time and repeated... which would mean if it went away, the creatures would stay exiled.

"Return those cards to the battlefield"... is this enchantment included in "those cards"?

You can use this on your opponent's turn and go into your combat and simply not attack, you can use this during their upkeep, then they return untapped during their combat. Seems stupid.
Yes this enchantment is included.
Probably good in naya!

Damn the system and its hypocrites! You quit your quest and venture into the slums of the Gruul Clans!

Wait, no its not included I think.

I'm 99.9% sure it's not repeatable.

Repeatable would be so broken and abusable.
I'm pretty sure that since Exiling the Initiative is an additional cost, it won't return itself to the battlefield as an effect of it's ability. It would be a whole lot better if you could, but the way it is now isn't half bad at all.
