Blinking Spirit
 
I'm not digging this card.  The only way it seems good is in a combo deck in which you have some way to get lots of mana and recast it.  But then again, there's likely something else that you can do with that mana.  It's a neat creature, but I don't think it will find it's way into many decks.  We didn't play it much the last couple of times it was legal.  I don't expect to see a lot of people playing it now.

Blinking Spirit --

I'm sitting on the fence with regards on how to rate this card. On one hand, it does have an extremely good ability; on the other, it is a bit more than I would like to pay for it. I understand that three mana for a 2/2 that bounced would be a bit too much, but it feels like Blinking Spirit needs something extra to be worth making the cut. However, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if this card made the cut into a high-quality deck at some point.

I can definitely see this card making an impact in limited. If you get to a point in the game in which you are losing to an opponent's big beater, Blinking Spirit could be used as a stalling device until you stabilize.

Blinking Spirit
 
An interesting little 2/2 that hasn't seen the light of day for a while. One of the things that Blinking Spirit does best is block and run, then return to block again another day. It has enough omph with 2 power to maybe take something down while doing so. It can also attack, then if blocked, damage on the stack and run. Blinking Spirit is for all practical purposes impossible to kill since you can return it in response for nothing.
 
In limited, a very worthy card for a white build.  In casual, interesting to consider, though maybe a bit unfocused for most decks.
