Another potential 'problem' with Force Hold would be an opponent the uses teleport to move the held creature around (my wizard often has teleport bound to his Mage Wand).  :)

Good point.

Another consideration I didn't mention is the cost to put it in your spellbook. Wizards can put in banish for 3 spell points and force hold for 4. All other known mages put banish in their book for 6 and force hold for 4 (except for the forcemaster for whom it cost 2).

Banish is a game changer. Trust me. The cost is worth it to remove a creature that costs 14+ mana. Think of it as killing a creature for 3 turns. I would put it in my spellbook if I could.
