Quicksand
This card is one of the most interesting additions to this year's newest version of Magic's base set, Ninth Edition. Originally printed nearly ten years ago in Visions, Quicksand provides extremely flexible colorless removal to any deck. You do have to wait until a non-flying creature attacks

you, but Quicksand is still a great tool. Quicksand comes into play untapped

and makes colorless mana. If you don't already have a supply of Visions edition Quicksands, you'll be glad to know that Wizards of the Coast is keeping Quicksand an uncommon, just as it was first printed in Visions.

Quicksand

This is mostly a control deck card. It's one more way to try and keep creatures at bay. I think this will be one of those cards that many players don't use immediately, but over the life of the set, it will get more play. The interesting thing is that it cost you a mana source to be able to kill a creature. So you can't be too liberal with the usage of such a card.

Quicksand --

This card seems decent enough to me, but I wouldn't call it great by any means. The part about "target attacking creature" means your opponent will be able to decide when you can use it. I usually prefer to surprise my opponent with removal. Overall, no matter what format, Quicksand is OK, but doesn't always need to make the cut.
