Destroy 1 of your opponent’s untapped creatures.
Savor the taste of fear!
Base Set, 53/110, Common
This is your basic Spell card. If this was a
shield Trigger, it would have a shot at being the
top monster removal card. Oh well. Chances are
they would have tacked on another mana of cost
then, which would not have helped it.
You get to destroy one of your opponent’s untapped
creatures! Click. Click. BOOM! Obviously, this
doesn’t help if your opponent is already blitzing
you with a card-if it’s attacking, it’s been
tapped. However, until the Evolutions come out,
you will always have a window of one turn to nuke
something. This is rally great for clearing high
Power blockers, who wouldn’t yet be tapped though.
Any deck that can fit in black. Budget decks
should always run black, btw: Some Rippers and
this can make up for a lack of Terror Pits.
4/5-Easy to get and very effective.
4/5-Here most people can afford the good stuff,
but I am not dropping the rating, because in a
Darkness Deck (and many di-
and tricolor decks), you will want to be running a
load of removal.
5/5-All creature removal is great in this format.
Yes, some are better than others, but they are all
so good without going into a lot of detail.
Probably number three for Creature removal, and
number two for creature kill (Terror Pit is tops,
and Spiral Gate is number two for removal).
