This card defines BlackRed's specialty perfectly.

The card isnt op. Fantastic, but not op. Regen isnt that huge of an ability anymore and the any creature clause is balanced by the red mana. Aint op.

Any fool who says that multicolored sucks should lookat this card, as well as Watchwolf, and Lightning Helix, and other great multicolored cards. Also, amazing removal, and the name is just so perfect. I mean, when someone has a big creature, it isn't too much fun to say 'Path to Exile'. But Terror, good, Doom Blade, better, Dark Banishing, fun, Terminate, win.

My five color deck just got a little better....5 stars for Terminate.

terminate is my favorite cheap kill card.

This is seriously the best instant kill spell. Two mana. No draw backs. Nothing matches it. 5/5

While I didn't like the overall balance in this block, this in particular struck me as perfect.

Every cheap removal spell has a restriction. Doom Blade and Dark Banishing can't hit black creatures, Go for the Throat can't hit artifact creatures, and Terror can't hit either. Terminate can hit any creature... but even it has a restriction, namely the red mana symbol in the cost. Only a handful of decks can run it. This prevents it from going out of control and warping every format ever.

That being said, I still think the card is a bit OP... but what can you do. Wizards printed it, we need to deal with it.

If you're running a red/black deck in any format where Terminate is legal, there is absolutely no reason not to run 4 copies. It's the most efficient spot removal ever printed.

Well, nothing much to say but amazing card. Path to exile, while it does cost less, is horrible early game card. the cost difference means next to nothing in the mid-late game, where path should be used anyway. If you path turn 1 or 2, you are giving the opponent a huge mana acceleration... not wise. Both have built in no-regeneration. Terminate sends to the graveyard, which can be more useful (for haunting echoes etc.) or less useful (if they have unearth/persist) depending. Then again, how can you compare cards in completely different colors? Different play styles, different uses. So although you may think that path to exile is better spot removal, which would you run in a B/R deck? Exactly. 5/5
