For constructed, this is almost a drop in the
ocean at this point, and in any
event, competitive players tend to prefer more
blatantly efficient cards like Terminate. Still,
this has more than a significant impact at
times, and can combine well with Smoldering
Spires to absolutely devastate someone just when
they think they have a defense in place.
Constructed: With Path to Exile and
Lightning Bolt, this card is not that great.
Okay but black has Hideous End and Smother and
Disfigure. You only need so much creature
removal in your deck.
Casual & Multiplayer:
Great card to deal with those pesky
Limited: If you need a little

you have a good team pick some of these up.

Magic The Gathering Card of the day: Tomb Hex
Welcome back readers today’s card of the day is
an interesting landfall card from Worldwake. The
preferred kill spells in competitive as of now
is Doom blade, Maelstrom Pulse, Urge to Feed,

number of lands being played. If removal
is in short supply this can be drafted
relatively early or included in a Sealed deck,
but otherwise look for better options whenever
