Shouldn't this be tap target creature without flying?

If not, that's some noose.

Fun Combo with Royal Assassin.

Strickly better than Cyclopean Snare.

what fun flavor text, lol standing between you and standing.....

those who look for combos with royal assassin should just look at visara the dreadful and avatar of woe instead.

You can tap multiple creatures on your turn with Cyclopean Snare. It can also trigger things like Azorius Aethermage.
I'd opt for Puppet Strings before either one though!

@Bluemaxx: Royal Assassin = {1}{B}{B}. Those others, CMC = 6+.

Trip Noose has a cheaper CMC than Icy Manipulator, but IM is so much more fun...why not run 'em both in an assassin deck?

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
