Such a great removal card. I prefer my removal to be no-strings attached, and hence prefer this to Path. Nifty art too. 5/5

I love thorough answers like this. It's somewhat expensive and is virtually unplayable in almost any multicolored deck that isn't Orzhov-colored, but protection and shroud are the only ways to survive this, which no single-target removal spell can get around. Path to Exile is largely the better card, but I feel much more secure with my Unmake in my hand than I do with my Path to Exile, since you don't have to be quite as judicious with it. There is also the point in the game where you have three lands out but it's too early to let your opponent get an extra land without suffering a noticeable disadvantage, where Unmake is unquestionably the better card. Sure, that point doesn't last long, but you can't expect everything to be as good as the second-best single-creature removal spell ever made, can you?

Yeah first time I saw this card I was like "whaaaaaaaaat" & I still pretty much do that every time since.

No strings attached hybrid removal at common?


I just won 4 copies of the textless version on eBay & my day has been made.

Love to play this and Path to Exile in the same deck. "Oh, so you target my creature with something nasty? Nah, I'll have a land instead, thank you very much."

Terror is good. Dark Banishing is great. Vindicate is excellent. But this...this is just the genuine article. Easy to find, cheap, and hybrid? Can I give this thing anything less than 5?

Simple, elegant, powerful and it's a common to boot. I love it!

No matter how I look at it, this card is better than most cheap kill spells in nearly every way.

This card is amazing, but has obviously been over-shadowed by Path to Exile. Actually, this card might see less time in standard usually because most white-black decks are token decks that need as many cheap spells as possible thus limiting the over-all effectiveness of this card.

i love this card, i wish i had more then 1 copy... because in a black/white deck it is basically a 3 colorless no downside swords.

how is this card not a better option then path to exile obviously it's the cost even with the hybrid symbols but in the right deck and right situation it's far superior to even StP in my opinion based entirely upon the no drawback clause

although this does'nt allow for a 1st turn removal wich could potentialy devastate you in certain tournament circles where players can have some pretty deadly stuff on the board in thier first turns sometimes with haste smashing you right in the face right from the get go
and that one mana exile can be the difference between winning and losing

but around the kitchen table you cant find better targeted creature removal then this
