This card doesn’t get as much credit as it deserves. To start, it’s a bear, which makes it a pretty decent card to start. Second, its ETB trigger can be really powerful. Against a deck that runs a lot of Suspend (lookin’ at you, Jhoira of the Ghitu), this card can effectively stop any time bombs since it just shuffles the suspended card away. It can also be beneficial to you by returning cards like Sins of the Past or Increasing Vengeance back into your library. Finally, and most amusing, it can screw over attempts to save other cards. Oh, you Turn to Misted your Bruna, Light of Alabaster in order to avoid the Final Judgement? Well, while she’s gone, I sweep her away. It’s the closest thing green is ever going to get to a Chaos Warp or a Spin Into Myth. Now, its major problem lies in the fact that you can only target exiled cards with its ETB trigger and green is not really known for exiling things. However, I see it more as a defensive ability since it’s more likely that your major problem with be exiled instead of just killed or bounced.

Pros: Retrieves cards from exile, sweeps cards from exile
Cons: Can only target things in exile

Rating: 3.5/5
