So I was thinking about a black-green control deck for the new standard and I realized that this onPhyrexian Obliterator becomes recurring creature removal that will also force your opponent to sacrifice permanents equal to the targeted creature's power.

Basilisk Collar likes this. I guess the deathtouch doesn't stop the damage from hitting your guy though.

Might also consider using - along with power-boosting auras, effects or equipment - Mogg Maniac or, better yet, Stuffy Doll. Or put this on something else and have it target the Stuffy Doll. Worst rare ever? You're just not thinking hard enough.

I am definately going to put three of these in my Spider deck! :D

My spiders are going to be eating things all day! This is definately underrated. 4/5

This works wel comboed with Magebane Armor. Expensive, yes, but works well as reusable creature destruction in green.

Actually, its decent, three possible strategies:

Uril + predatory urge = 7/7 that can tap to kill off any less than 7 toughness creature while being shrouded itself.

Deep-slumber titan + predatory urge = a 7/7 that can tap, then immediately untaps when it has damage caused to it, allowing it to tap again (that is if it can take the damage without dying that second time).

Protean hydra + predatory urge = clear a creature and add counters to hydra.

Can also see a creature with death touch having fun with this especially if that creature is also equipped with indestructibility, aka gorgon flail and indestructibility enchant or shield of the oversoul, possibly shield of kaldra if your using stonehewer giant. Possibly regeneration as well, aka gaze of the gorgon.

On a creature with vigilance it can technically do twice that creatures damage, and on a creature with first strike on top of that it is equivalent to double strike.

Not saying its the most awesome enchantment I'... (see all)

I have actually played with this in my standard green speed beasties deck.... and it is surprisingly effective especially for green. I mean i know its not the greatest creature removal card ever made, but i love this card because it gives green the ability to have some sort of recurring creature removal and it also works with greens theme of summoning huge creatures to do your bidding. Also, now that the worldwake set has come out and i have access to a creature like leatherback baloth and other cards such as basilisk collar predatory urge is quickly becoming my favorite green removal card in standard... even thou there is not really that much competition.

I'll admit I shunned this card initially just like everyone else, but now that i have actually used it and seen its true power and potential in a true old school green deck i have feel in love with predatory urge.
..... just as a side note now that i have played with this card i would totally use this in a green deck over splashi... (see all)

Played a guy who was running a green and white ally deck. I popped out a first turn Arbor Elf. Next turn I had a 4/5 Leatherback Baloth. Turn 3 it had this card on it and the person sweeped, saying his Allies would be destroyed the moment the dropped, which was true.

This card can be extremely useful for someone playing a beasty deck, or anything with higher powered cards for that matter simply because it's an easy way to take out the ever so common Ally and Vampire decks that are all the rage of the Zendikar block. At the very least, a mandatory sideboard card.

I was disappointed when I pulled this card 30 min. ago but the more I think about it and read everyone's opinions, the more it makes me want to use it and see if it can actually be really utilized proficiently. Maybe I'll try to stick it on my thornling, and make it indestructible.

Might be fun if you can pump up Stuffy Doll. You can even have it target itself and deal double damage to an opponent.

Decent spot removal in limited, due to it being repeatable. Seems like it'd be a good fit on a Nighthawk to get rid of the sub-3 power creatures on the board and get 2 health in the process, or it'd do well on a fatty to clear out the bigger stuff so your smaller creatures can attack.

Actually, it could work *really* well on a Felidar Sovereign. Attack, 4 health, block, 4 health, use Predatory Urge ability, 4 health. Hmmmm, seems like a good limited combo.
