What an interesting little card.  It can only bash critters, but can bash untapped light critters.  If you're looking to play Darkness Defense, this card fits in nicely.  It will kill a lot of things and do it well.  Honestly, despite it's non-aggro nature, I like the card immensely, and think it will have a nice place in future decks.  It can function as a reverse Death Smoke - something that isn't bad for multiple uses at a 5 drop.

In limited, it's required.  No way I wouldn't play this.

Constructed: 4
Limited: 5

sigh... another anti-light card... woopy doo...

well today we have the second worst anti-light card of the week Photocide.
this card is a darkness creature that is a 9000 for 5 and it can only attack light creatures (not even players). well... it is a Ucarn, but its drawback is worse than Ucarns. This may seem wierd, but I think a interesting thing you could do with this card is too play this in a darkness/light dimond cutter deck (yes i know it sounds wierd but keep with me) and you could use this, a whole bunch of light/dark blockers to stall while you have a mongrel man on the field speeding up your draw power increasing the chance for you to get dimond cutter, than you could let away. Another idea is to add jack viper in the deck so you keep getting your sucky dark monsters back while drawing cards... well its just a idea.. who knows it could be the new world champ. deck ^.^

rating:
constructed- 3.9/5 only because the of the meta and 4.2/5 in my deck idea ^.^
limited- 1.6/5 bombs are great but not if you cant use them =/

final thought- dont bother with him in tournys

(Update 10.20.04)   I didn't realize that it could attack any creature plus untapped light creatures, so I change my ratings to:
constructed-3.0/5
limited- 4.5/5

Well this card suits one purpose. It helps you get Ballom out faster. Color hate is useless unless your opponent's are all Light decks. Even so it's not too impressive considering Gran Gure has just as much power and minus the drawback. Ballom isn't the greatest card out there. Sure you kill all non-darkness creatures, but your opponent can always recover. A well timed chains of sacrifice can pretty much do the same thing as Ballom. Anyway this card isn't too good. I never liked Steel Smasher. So I'm probably not going to run this card.

Hey everyone! I think this card is a good addition to a darkness deck. Light decks are becoming very powerful thanks to Diamond Cutter, and this card can stop most Light creatures before they attack. Yeah, it can't attack players, but it can attack untapped Light creatures, and with 9000 power, you can get them before they get you. Of course, it's nothing special against any other deck, except that 9000 power can defeat most creatures. Overall, it's an above average card.
 
Constructed: 4/5
Limited: 3/5
