Despite the card text stating that the enchanted creature absorbs "all the damage," only physical damage from creatures without momentum is absorbed. Types of damage that bypass Gravity Pull include:
- Creatures with momentum
- Spell damage (from spells, Unstable Gas, Psion, or Shard of Wisdom)
Gravity Pull can be used as creature control, allowing your creatures to attack an opposing creature, or on your own creatures to protect yourself.
Gravity Pull is useful in combination with Voodoo Doll, redirecting opposing creatures' attacks onto the doll, which relays the damage back to the opponent. Basilisk Blood can also be useful by increasing the amount of damage that your creature can absorb.
