Correct me if I'm wrong, but you can tap it in response to the upkeep trigger to destroy an opponent's land even if you can't pay, right? So even at worst, it's just an even trade. Seems pretty nice!

This card looks pretty awesome, three mana a turn for your choice of swinging with a 5/5 or destroying a land.

I just rated Minion of Leshrac . . Random button leads me to another black land destroyer.
6 for 5/5 body that can destroy land continuously . . enough said.

I've punished many with this card back in the day.. The game has changed but even today it would cause a decent amount of disturbance to warrant it's existence.. Don't sleep on this card.. You'll bend it.

Much too expensive for my tastes, and with a heavy penalty.

This card was extremely hard to deal with back in the day due to its land nuking ability and the fact that the only real removal was terror and swords to plowshares; obviously terror doesn't work, and STP is giving you 5 life. Instill Energy and Dark Ritual were also both legal, the former letting you nuke multiple lands or nuke one and still attack, and the latter letting it come out as soon as you have enough swampage to pay the upkeep.

It's the only demon I ever liked or played. I ran it in a deck with instill energy for serious control and won countless games with it back in the day. Amazing artwork too, especially for the era. Jesper was really good at creeping you out, and these demons still gives me the heebie-jeebies after all these years.

When I was around 14 or 15 my most common Magic: the Gathering opponent was... my mom. Yup, that's right. My mom. I had friends at school who played casually, and I could occasionally get my brother and next door neighbor to play, but my mom was ol' Faithful. Whenever I needed a game, my mom would play. My mom's favorite card was Demonic Hordes. For the longest time, though, only I owned a copy. She would get very mad whenever I'd bring them into play. Like most players, my mom was very much against land destruction (especially since it was hers that were getting blasted). One time, however, she was ready for me. Or at least, she thought she was. When I played my Demonic Hordes triumphantly, my mom kinda smirked a little. That was uncharacteristic, I thought. Usually she pitched a fit when I brought the Hordes into play. Next turn, I found out why. Control Magic. My mom stole my Demonic Hordes! For a few painful moments, I was quite distraught. Th... (see all)

Eppek, I think I speak for a lot of people when I say I wish my mom was as cool as yours.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
