Why doesn't something like this exist?

Name: Blinking Medallion

Mana Cost: 5

Type: Artifact - Equipment

Rarity: Rare or Uncommon

Color / C. Identity : Colorless / Colorless


Equip 2 (2: Attach to target creature you control. Equip only as a sorcery)

Equipped creature has "T: Exile this creature then return it to the battlefield under its owner's control."

Flavor: Through decades of inter-plenary travels, this medallion absorbed so much power it planeshifts seemingly at will.


Blinking Medallion detaches from the creature as it is exiled and does not attach to it when it returns.

The creature returns to the battlefield untapped, with summoning sickness.

So pretty much a debuffed dead-eye that can go in any deck?

I'd imagine they haven't made it because they don't want dead-eye to be accessible to every color. Maybe I'm wrong.

I like the idea

I actually based it on Conjurer's Closet, which is accessible to every color.

Probably because blinking is pretty damn powerful in certain deck types.

There could be something like this as well:

Name: Vanishing Powder

Mana Cost: 2

Type: Artifact

Rarity: Uncommon at best

Color / C. Identity : Colorless / Colorless


, , Sacrifice Vanishing Powder: Exile target permanent, then return it to the battlefield under its owner's control.

Flavor: "Aaaand... It's gone!"

Off-rulings: None

This would also be interesting, especially with the void mana making you go the extra mile to activate it.

It is also similar to Eldrazi Displacer which made some waves too. Blinking is just a really strong ability when you have strong etb triggers.

Yeah, I suppose flickering something like Desolation Twin would be way too strong.

Never mind about my last comment, I didn't read the card right.

That card + Vulshok Battlemaster = infinite ETB triggers

That card + Thousand-Year Elixir Mass Hysteria In the Web of War Lightning Greaves + Burning-Tree Emissary Priest of Urabrask Priest of Gix Kazuul's Toll Collector Kor Outfitter Puresteel Paladin(with metalcraft) Auriok Survivors(if you have a sacrifice outlet) = infinite ETB triggers, too

Basically, it's be a EDH combo machine.

With cards like Tidehollow Sculler and Wasteland Strangler you can pretty much machinegun thier hand and their board

Yeah, but I found out more interesting combos:

Felidar Guardian + Restoration Angel + Panharmonicon + any ETB draw = play entire deck, assuming you have lands that don't enter the battlefield tapped.
