Consuming Sinkhole
 
Seeing all these colorless damage spells makes me a little sad that Circles of Protection aren't in Standard nowadays. Not that Circles of Protection promote interesting games per se - they're the reason a lot of players my age have a stereotype of white as the color that stops everything from happening ever, and are a perfect example of what Abe Sargent calls "a Shahrazad". It's more that there's not really any utility gained from their being colorless. They would dodge cards like Flashfreeze and Luminesce, but those aren't in Standard either (though they might run into each other in larger casual card pools). Their game text is really the main event, and in Consuming Sinkhole's case, you get something decent either way. Creature lands can be problematic for almost any deck, and the first mode prevents it from being too narrow - four damage for four mana is not efficient in older formats, but it's still a significant percentage of most duel formats' starting life total, and as such is a threat at any stage.

Here is the third verse of the recitation. The inescapable, all-devouring. There is no situation under which it can not hurt you. It is inside you now. Once you have glimpsed it, you can never escape it. Ever.
