Vanish into Memory
Exile target creature. You draw cards equal to that creature's power. At the beginning of your next upkeep, return that card to the battlefield under its owner's control. If you do, discard cards equal to that creature's toughness.
Out of sight, into mind.

7/15/2006 Vanish into Memory cares about the creature's power just before it left the battlefield and its toughness just after it returns to the battlefield. For example, if you target a Vigean Hydropon with two +1/+1 counters on it, you'll draw two cards, then when the Hydropon returns to the battlefield with five +1/+1 counters on it, you'll discard five cards. 7/15/2006 If the creature exiled with Vanish into Memory never returns to the battlefield (because it was a token creature, for example), you don't discard any cards 7/15/2006 If the creature exiled with Vanish into Memory isn't a creature card (for example, it was an animated Gruul War Plow), that card will still be returned to the battlefield, but not as a creature. Since the card returned to the battlefield has no toughness, you discard no cards.
