There is one very important thing to consider with Oubliette, however. There are two versions of the card. One version has a mana cost that reads as BB – although the colorless 1 is there but is extremely faint – but the correct version clearly shows its mana cost as 1BB. That being said, the misprinted copy is in fact worth nearly as much as the correct copy. So whether copy you pick up, you’re only talking about a difference of about 50 cents to a dollar. Just keep in mind the card really costs 1BB to cast.
So what’s so wonderful about this card? There’s a lot of text on it. Here’s the Oracle text to clarify:
“When Oubliette enters the battlefield, exile target creature and all Auras attached to it. Note the number and kind of counters that were on that creature.
When Oubliette leaves the battlefield, return that exiled card to the battlefield under its owner’s control tapped with the noted number and kind of counters on it. If you do, return the other exiled cards to the battlefield under their owner’s control attached to that permanent.”
So it’s sort of like Journey to Nowhere in white, except that it actually keeps any Auras and any counters that it had on it when it left. Still, that’s a really useful card, and it’s an Enchantment. We all know how Enchantments are all the rage these days. In any case, Oubliette is a great card to find. It is not on the reserve list, so there is an outside possibility that it one day be reprinted. For now, though, it looks to be a fairly safe investment.
