Quote from Crazy Pierre »Humans are going to Aether Vial stuff on your turn, and if they suspect you of having this card they'll name it off Meddling Mage.
"Meddling Mage stops it" has to be the only argument worse than "dies to removal!"

This whole cycle is predominantly designed to stop combo. Otherwise, it's just card disadvantage against fair decks. 100% sideboard card, but effective against the right matchup.
