I've had to deal with New Phyrexia's Preator's Grasp and Life's Finale... It sucks being on the receiving end, losing some key parts to a combo..

It's a really great support. i have two of this in my nightmare deck and it's enough to cripple your opponent's library. Great Card!!

in a mono-black deck, this is more efficient than the cap..

This card is brutal, not a spike card but thats fine.

Expensive, but potent. Could've gone for a bit more Black in its casting cost rather than 1. We all know no one is going to use this outside of a mono-black deck, and Umbra Stalker needs all the tasty Black it can get.

How and why is this rated so low? Cranial Extraction and Extirpate are freaking bombs in duo color or mono color black decks. Haunting Echoes, Tendrils of Corruption, Corrupt... I mean this card is right up there with them. It lets you do the one thing that black decks have wanted to do for years, search a library and remove these cards so your opponent doesn't have access to them. Power 5/5

"How and why is this rated so low? Cranial Extraction and Extirpate are freaking bombs in duo color or mono color black decks."

It probably has to do with having a huge CMC on a card that doesn't effect the game state immediately. Extirpate and Cranial Extraction were bombs against combo decks (and really only sideboarded ones, at that) because they could be used before the opponent could put together his combo. Six turns is a lot of time to wait, and you can't just rush out this card with a Dark Ritual without hurting it's potency.

Extirpate and Cranial Extraction also had the decency to hit any copies of the exiled cards that might be in the opponent's hand, generating at least card parity. Nightmare Incursion is card disadvantage every time you cast it.
