Amusing synergy: Grave Pact, followed by this sacrificing no lands. (I'm sure there are other ways to abuse the ability to move two creatures through play for a single mana as well)

They finally did it.

They fixed Wood Elemental.

And made it red. For some reason.

Or you could be a jerk and combo with Balance.

One of the best cards in RoE. Alongside Goblin Bushwhacker, it allows red decks to win on turn three. People should think a bit before they start firing off baseless criticisms that are backed up by zero playing experience.

Aaron's Card of the Day comment on Reality Spasm reminded me of this card's story.

Like Aaron did for Reality Spasm, I first designed Devastating Summons as a colorless sorcery that cost 2. I was thinking about Eldrazi eating the plane - so they eat all your land and use that to produce huge monsters. The fact that you lose all (well, as many as you want - but who casts it for less than all?) of your lands also fit for Eldrazi in another sense: their pattern of thinking was alien and hard to understand.

When the creative team instructed us to make all the Eldrazi spells cost 7 or more it was cut from the set. We realized it could just as easily be a red spell and recosted it at R. Interestingly, you can also take the flavor in a Worldwake sort of way - the land must sa... (see all)

Made a huge hit in my pandemonium deck. Great finishing move.

Amazing finisher for RDW. Run with Goblin Bushwhacker and swing for at least 14 on turn five for only three mana.


Who plays Whiplash Trap?

I didn't see it at first, but when you can win on turn 3 with this you can't ignore that...

No haste? Do you gents know what Goblin Bushwhacker is? Just float the three red, and you're set.
