Terror

A mere two mana to kill a creature is nothing to laugh at, especially when it eliminates the possibility of regeneration. My Mire Boa swings for whaaa?
Nonblack and nonartifact are restrictions, but black kill spells have always had trouble hitting black creatures and players have adjusted. Now that Mirrodin is in the past, the nonartifact clause basically just adds Razormane Masticore and Phyrexian Ironfoot to the immunity list, unless some superbaddie Golem starts tearing up in Lorwyn.

Constructed- 3.5
Casual- 4
Limited- 4

Tuesday - Terror

One of the original black removal spells. I feel this is one of the best removal spells in the game. Most creatures in the meta game right now are NOT black so you basically can destroy any one creature for the cost of 2 at instant speed. If they are playing a black heavy deck you can always sideboard it out. Its just too strong of a spell not to main deck.

Constructed: 4
Casual: 4
Limited: 5

Terror

Terror's quality has always depended on the environment it was in. Back when Standard was a brand new format, it was bad because everyone ran Knight of Stromgald or Order of Leitbur. When it came back in Mirrodin, it was bad because everything was an artifact and everything that wasn't had shroud (Troll Ascetic much?). Now that it's back in the Tenth Edition, it might just be good because Tarmogoyf is green and Aeon Chronicler is blue. Troll Ascetic still can't be targeted, though.

In limited, you play this. There aren't too many relevant things in the Core Set that this can't hit.

Terror

It's a 2 mana kill spell! It kills a lot of stuff, notably Tarmagoyf. Terror is one of the most efficient cards in killing Tarmagoyf, with Deathmark and Spell Snare being the most efficient in Standard. However, Terror kills a lot of other stuff do so it's worth considering. There are next to no good artifact creatures in Standard so it's way better than Dark Banishing. It's like Slaughter Pact, except that for paying mana early, you get a 1 mana discount with no regeneration. Not a bad deal at all.

In casual, this is still efficient removal.

In limited, a lot of people play black, but there's still plenty of targets to go around. Eat Terror Shivan Hellkite!

Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 3/5
