New Card - Sudden Disappearance

This next Dark Ascenion card is one of those cards that makes you think, "doesn't this card exist already?" And I say that in the best way possible.

First Impression

Simple, elegant, and an obvious evolution of an already established white mechanic. In general, I always welcome new build around cards. Although, I wouldn't have minded if Sudden Disappearance was an instant instead of a sorcery, but I guess you can't have everything.

It's also important to note the single white mana in the casting cost. Cards that fit so solidly in their color wheel, pie slice are normally double colored.

Deck Ideas

"Enters the battlefield" and "leaves the battlefield" effects are the name of the game when it comes building around this card. And since that is such a wide range of potential cards to include in a deck, let's set some self-imposed restrictions:
  • The deck can only include cards from Innistrad & Dark Ascension
  • The deck must feature both creatures and non-creature permanents
I think most people would immediately go to creatures for this deck, but let's think a little more outside the box on this one.

First we start with a handful of powerful white creatures that have "enters the battlefield" effects: But the card that I think really makes this deck really funky is a recently spoiled Dark Ascension card: Not only will Helvault be able to exile opposing creatures, you'll also be able to exile your own creatures at instant speed. And thanks to Sudden Disappearance, you now have the means to bring them back to life. Not to mention that because Helvault can work at instant speed, all of a sudden the Fiend Hunter stacking trick is now available to use and abuse. This might even be a Seance deck, but I'm not too sure how well it would work out or if it's needed at all.
