Boomerang - Wednesday

There's not a lot to say here. The card's been around a long time. It's generally useful, but not drastically exciting.

Boomerang

The quintessential bounce spell. If you're blue enough to have UU by turn three at least, then you have to ask yourself why you're not playing this.

Wednesday - Boomerang

A solid control card that comes and goes in Constructed formats, and a staple of the base set. This card is never bad to have around, as it can set them back quite a bit if played correctly. This card's most recent claim to fame was pairing it with Eye of Nowhere in the U/R Magnivore decks, despite the fact that it wasn't a sorcery. That should tell you the power of, on turn 2 with you on the play, going land, Boomerang your one land, go. Not always a card that has a place, but one that is always worth considering.

In limited, great to have as a temporary solution to a big threat, or to bounce a problem blocker to turn 'em sideways.

Wednesday

Blue's old school removal. 2 for bounce. Simple as that. If can't counter it, use this to send it back and counter it the next time.

Boomerang

Sometimes the simple things in life are the best. Boomerang offers extreme versatility for a very affordable cost. It doesn't offer the card advantage of Repeal, the tempo advantage of Time Ebb, or the splashability of Unsummon, but what it does offer is solidity. The only bounce spells I've found to even compete with it are Repulse, Echoing Truth, and Repeal, but in terms of overall general quality, nothing beats the original.

Constructed: 4/5
Casual: 3/5
Limited: 4/5

Boomerang
What is not to love. A classic. If you did not have the counter when you needed it and can survive a turn or two, this may get you that counter. Huge damage coming your way...boing. Oh, that gargadon just came into play and you sacked all your permanents to get it in...boing. In the environment with vanishing and suspend, I think this card will see play.

Boomerang (UU)

Return target permanent to its owner's hand.

It's pretty good at what it does, but I don't see what it's good for
right now. I reckon that 50% of the time, you'll be bouncing a creature,
which means Snapback and Unsummon are just better than this.

The bounce lands hardly see play. Enchantments are rather rare to
enounter, especially with Worship gone. In the future, there will be a
use for this, but I don't think it has any good use yet.

In casual, it's kind of the same.

In limited, it saves your stuff, it 2 for 1 Auras, it save your life.

Constructed: 1.5/5
Casual: 2/5
Limited: 3.5/5
