Skred

If all your lands are snow, this card will pretty much kill any card your opponent plays whenever you want. Aside from the occasional wall, few creatures have toughness higher than the number of lands your opponent will have out by the time you can cast said creature. This makes Skred the most efficient burn spell in Standard, and quite possibly ever. It also goes perfectly into Stuffy Doll decks.

Casual- 4

Skred

In a deck with enough snow permanents, this basically reads "R: Destroy target creature." Fortunately, red control decks were quite popular recently, incorporating Stuffy Doll, of all things. If you're playing that style of deck, Skred is a great removal spell. If you hate snow-covered lands for some irrational reason, this won't appeal to you - just remember, you're missing out on killing Angels of Despair for one mana!

Monday's card is Skred, a red card from Coldsnap. For one red mana, you can deal damage to a creature equal to the number of snow permanents you control. I remember there was a deck that used this that also used a lot of snow permanents and Stuffy Doll and combined with Stuffy Doll this can be a powerful late game win condition if you have enough snow permanents in play. Without snow permanents, this card is useless and without Stuffy Doll, this really can be replaced by better stuff.

Limited: 2/5
Constructed: 3/5
