It's a great way to finish your opponent out of nowhere, and the element of surprise is often what counts. If my opponent is coming at me with a specter, Shimian or otherwise, I wouldn't mind spending cards I would lose anyway to get rid of it and put me up some life, too. Plus, a lot of you guys are missing that this is an instant. An instant. And it only has {B}{B} in the mana cost, so hardcasting it isn't that bad. I've ended quite a few games with this little stiletto.

Fireblast makes a comeback in black! With a slightly higher CMC and a small benefit

However Fireblast is much easier to cast using the alternative (saccing two mountains instead of pitching two cards from your hand). Still this is a strong finisher in the right deck esp if you have the card draws or tutors for more black cards

I would probably compare it to Fireblast than Drain Life or Consume Spirit.
Surprise finisher when tapped out is a good card.

I dont think madness would work since youre removing the cards from the game.

Is that Lovisa Coldeyes? It looks like her, and I'm almost certain that that's her axe.

This card rocks! Use it with necropotence or any card advantage.

Is this even that good? Maybe I'm a noob but losing 3 cards to kill one creature or swing for 8 life points doesn't seem all that great to me...

well a consume spirit for 4 damage cost 6(black mana only except one) for a sorcery, this one cost 7 for an instant ... ho but wait, I can play it for free anytime ... if used with something like howling mines and cie!

A BIG 4.74/5

haha no not with madness. nah this isnt a bargain, come on lightning helix is one less and costs 2! srsly drain life is better haha. i can only see this if you use it on the back of a sign in blood and instead of discarding you just pitch

Easily the worst of the cycle.

I just can't justify paying two more for an instant speed Soul Feast.
The alt cost makes it playable, but I feel like it should have it for more at the cost of seven.

If nothing else, it's strictly better than Vampiric Feast.
