Is it? I've seen it in competitive lists, but I wouldn't call it a staple. I guess people include it as an out to hate cards like Rest in Peace or Null rod. If I were in the market for that sort of effect, I'd prefer to run Chain of Vapor instead.
You might, but most of us don't like giving our opponents that kind of decision-making authority.
That's fair. If I'm playing competitively, I'm playing storm, so I don't usually have anything in play that wouldn't net mana if it were bounced.
