Guys, just use this in an EDH deck. It's actually not that hard to pull off... especially if you're willing to target your own stuff should one of the types of cards be missing on an opponent's side. You know, take one for the team.

This card is perfect for EDH. Invariably, in a game with multiple opponents, you will have an artifact, creature, enchantment, and land that needs to be destroyed. Decimate can take care of all of them at the same time, and for only four mana.

Besides, if you can't make the count (say you're lacking an enchantment), you can always destroy something of your own that you don't mind losing. For instance, would you give up a token creature to get rid of an enchantment, artifact, and land? It still seems like a very good deal to me.

Wow, I just took a good look at the art. One lazer is hitting the guy (creature) on the bluish aura around him(enchantment) one is hitting his sword (artifact) and one is hitting the dirt(land). The rays are even the right color for what they are wrecking! Red for the land and creature (stone rain and friends/all the burn). Green for the artifact and enchantment (all that naturalize back to basics stuff). Well done Mr Horley.

the thing I love about this card is the art, truthfully.

Truly, incredibly difficult to play. However, if you were to build a deck around wish cards, namely Burning Wishes, you would be able to have more control on the time you want this to be in your hand. If it can't resolve in the given circumstances, then you wish for something else that can. If it can resolve, just wish for it and create a massive card advantage. I imagine one feels incredibly gratified seeing this one go off.

@baconradar: no, something like phantasmagorian is hard to resolve.

I wish you didn't need to target one of each. Yes, it would make this a bit overpowered, but it would be worth it to have a card that says:

Choose one - Destroy target creature; or destroy target enchantment; or destroy target land; or destroy target artifact; or destroy target creature and target enchantment; or destroy target creature and target land; or destroy target creature and target artifact; or destroy target enchantment and target land; or destroy target enchantment and target artifact; or destroy target land and target artifact; or destroy target creature, target enchantment and target land; or destroy target creature, target land and target artifact; or destroy target creature, target enchantment and target artifact; or destroy target enchantment, target land and target artifact; or destroy target creature, target enchantment, target land and target artifact.

True words, it's hard to pull off but when you can manage it, it's card advantage galore.
Despite being in the enemy colour, Linessa, Zephyr Mage reminded me of this card. But her grandeur ability doesn't require targeting.

So you're pretty much eliminating 4 things for 1 mana each. May be hard to pull off, but that's pretty damn efficient in my opinion.

Just wish this functionality matched the flavor. Decimate implies a tenth of everything being taken or destroyed, much like Tithe does. Tithe is a more specific tenth, being in more of a tax/finance (religious charity) type tenth.

See Pox & Smallpox for a good representation of flavor & function matching.

This is really easy to cast now due to Theros block.

This is by a very large margin my favorite destruction card ever printed. (Though Decimator Web honestly has the flavor down better) It may be hard to resolve properly, but when she hits, she hits like a tonne of bricks!

Lets be honest, the snag is usually an enchantment, but in Red or Green aggro with Rancor? Sure I'll let that take the hit in exchange for killing three of your cards! Occasionally I have to take a more drastic hit and lose an equipment like my Mage Slayer in addition. Guess what? That is still breaking even for card advantage! This thing can be that potent when she goes off!

It does work like that according to MTGO. I cast it on all 4 legal targets the other day and the blue player bounced one of the targets, and it still resolved.

If they ever change the rules in magic, making cards like this and Hex legal to cast even if there isnt the required legal targets on the field.

It should be that way, if you cast hex and they sac all but 1 creature in response, the spell doesnt fizzle that creature still gets nuked. But if there is only 5 legal targets for Hex you cannot cast it at all.

Same with this thing, if you can hit a creature, artfiact, and a land, you cannot cast it at all because you need to have all 4 targeted when you cast. But if they sac one or 2 or even 3 things in response, then the spell will go off just fine.

If they made the needed change then this would be allot better.
