Jetting Glasskite
 
I was always surprised that this card's anti-targeting ability - which actually only appeared on three creatures from Kamigawa - didn't get a little more exposure over the years. Sure, it's annoying to people, but not that much more annoying than hexproof, which got pushed to the moon a few years ago, and at least there's one way around it. Plus it might have made a role in constructed for cards like Vulshok Sorcerer to "clear" the creature's shield ahead of an actual kill spell. On the side of the person casting it, Jetting Glasskite is solid despite its lack of spectacular offensive abilities. Long-game blue decks can often outdraw their opponents and thus have a chance of holding the right cards to protect the Glasskite after its shield comes down, and it fights well enough on both offense and defense.

Ugh, this feels so dated now that we have cards with shroud and hexproof. pass.
