Turn to Mist


Exile target creature. Return that card to the battlefield under its owner's control at the beginning of the next end step.

I dislike how crossway troublemakers grants lifelink and deathtouch only to attacking vampires, as that encourages attacking, not blocking, and I would like to see this game be about more than simply aggressively attacking with creatures.

The new artwork on Swords to Plowshares, Nirkana Revenant, and Drogskol Captain is most excellent, so I am glad for it.

Timothar’s ability is quite awesome, but the tokens that he generates do not have haste and are very vulnerable, so the chance of recovering the exiled creature is less than optimal, unless the player has methods of protecting the tokens.

Why is disorder in the court blue and white, the two colors most concerned with order and structure? Will it be a suitable replacement for Turn to Mist in my Chulane, Teller of Tales EDH deck?

I like how spectral arcanist can cast spells from any graveyard, but the fact that it does not have flash limits its usefulness.

Ethereal investigator definitely should have been white, considering that it generates white tokens.

Sudden salvation is definitely a form of card drawing that feels white without violating white’s weaknesses.

Donal, herald of wings and whispering wizard could have been so awesome if they did not have the "once per turn" clause; why does WotC seem to think that that clause is a good idea?

On the other hand, the fact that haunted library does not have a "once per turn" clause is amazing, so I expect that that card shall be very popular and powerful.

Storm of souls is very nice, but the fact that it reduces all the creatures to 1/1’s means that its caster shall need another methods of making them more powerful, which is easy to do in white, thankfully.

Sinister waltz is amazing, and costs only five mana to recover three creatures, so I hope that I can find a way to fit it into some of my decks that contain red and black.

Glass-cast heart again suffers from the same problem from which all mass life drain has, recently, in that the amount of life gained does not increase with the number of opponents who lose life; why did WotC make that change?

Also, on that subject, the fact that WotC still has not printed a creature version of Exquisite Blood really annoys me, since this was the perfect set in which to print such a card; when will they ever print such a card?

DemonDragonJ Turn to Mist and Mistmeadow Witch still run into having the same problems as every other instant-speed flicker effect that WotC is worried about - in that they are effects that still offer a huge amount of both aggressive AND defensive versatility. that's something WotC appears to want to get away from, because it puts too much power into one ability, and limits overall creative space. I think going forwards we're just going to mainly see sorcery-speed flicker effects, and instant-speed phasing. Which to-be-honest, is fine - eternal formats already have a massive assortment of options for flickering, and I don't see us particularly needing any more of this effect.

Grubbernaut, yes, that does make sense.

Beware, I actually like "flicker" effects specifically because they can be used to trigger "enters-the-battlefield" abilities repeatedly; using them to protect creatures from destruction is merely a nice bonus. Between those two options, I am not certain which I prefer, because I would like to have the best of both worlds.

If WotC is reluctant to print more cards that exile and immediately return a creature to the battlefield, such as Momentary Blink or Ephemerate, could they at least compromise with cards that have a delayed return, such as Turn to Mist or Mistmeadow Witch? Those cards still allow for repeated triggering of "enters-the-battlefield" abilities, but are not as broken as the previous cards that I mentioned.

Phasing was a mechanic from the older years of MtG that WotC had stopped using for a long time, but has recently revived, and I am wondering why they have done that.

I am not fond of phasing, as I much prefer "flicker" effects (i.e., Turn to Mist or Momentary Blink), since flicker effects allow for much great combo potential, especially abusing "enters-the-battlefield" abilities or sending a general back to the command zone in EDH games, whereas phasing has no synergy with either of those.

I really hope that WotC keeps phasing as only an occasional ability, and instead keeps "flicker" effects as the primary method for protecting creatures or temporarily removing threats.

What does everyone else say about this? Why has WotC brought back phasing, and will they still continue to print "flicker" effects?

KodenejmBerni: Graceful Reprieve is here because it can target my creatures AND my opponent's creatures, for instance if I have no Turn to Mists or Crib Swaps in hand, I still have the opportunity to leverage some life swings. Most of the time it will save my own creatures though, when I chump with them.

You do raise a good point about the 4 mana required to pull it off though. Perhaps I should take out a couple and add some actual removal. Thanks for the help!

passimo: Yes, Spell_Slam mentioned it above a while back. I'm just now getting around to scrounging some up copies and updating the deck. (I have, and continue to make, a lot of decks so I don't get around to updating as often as I'd like.) I actually just discovered Afterlife, which is pauper legal thanks to MTGO, and it actually destroys, rather than exiles, meaning better synergy with Graceful Reprieve, so I'm also considering that now, too. So thanks, lol, I already pre-approved your suggestion! And glad to hear you like the deck!

Thebestnoob the key difference to note here is that Turn to Mist just says creature--whereas a spell like Disentomb that can grab creatures from a graveyard says creature card. A "creature" is only a creature when it's in play; it's called a creature spell on the stack; and it's a creature card everywhere else (graveyard, hand, library and exile)
