Apparently it's been a while since anyone commented on this. No mention of either Hypergenesis or Living End.
Anyway, that's what this is good for, all you folks out there :)

I put this in a creatureless deck discard, just because it always nets one of my two best cards.

In limited this got me to top 4. Also in constructed RGB aggro? Stop a potential blocker, cascade into Jund Hackblade, or Colossal Might, or Terminate... Then swing with your creatures. Oh AND it's common.

For a limited scenario, this guy is very appealing to me. Considering all the new two drops in ARB that are very amazing (I'm looking at you, Hackblade) you generally can't go wrong with what you cascade into.

I've been beat down with this card way too many times to not consider it a good card. As Annex said, when cascade hits a Terminate or Jund Hackblade, you can gain a lot of tempo on your opponent.

Should be an instant.

it stops a blocker and can let you get an additional attacker, or kill something (terminate)... this could be fun in a deck with alot of two cost cards, cheap burns and/or terror for free.

but an overcosted card with cascade is potentially an ok effect tacked onto a very good card.

a bad card with cascade is usually still a bad card. considering how much it tends to get overcosted.

Like the other 3-mana cascade spells, its main use is cascading into the "suspend-only" haymakers like hypergenesis and living end. However, unlike ardent plea and violent outburst, there needs to be a creature in play you can target to cast demonic dread, so your deck will probably only include it if you want more than 8 such spells.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
