A lot of people seem to not like this card. Personally, I think it's pretty cool. It works with creatures that have high converted mana costs but you can play cheaply - such as affinity creatures or Avatar of Woe - and can easily brutalize a weenie or token deck. Besides, when has black minded having its own creatures in the graveyard?

Plus, those trees in the art are pretty awesome.

EDIT: Okay, normally I don't do this... but BastianQoU is just so fuckin' daft.
Look - I know Avatar of Woe's converted mana cost stays the same. The idea is that if you play the avatar for two mana, then you can still play Forced March for 7 without killing her, all right? I'm not saying this is super-secret tech for killing one card. You use both together because her CMC remains the same.

The worst part may be that you pretty much went on to repeat my comment. Yes, it's good against "token or weenie decks." Golly, where have we heard that before. Oh, what's th... (see all)

This card destroys creature no matter what size they are, base purely on their cost. In today's environment where 2~3 cmc would give you 3/3 or bigger, this card is a selective sweeper you could manage strategically.

Pernicious Deed is far superior, but for the budget, mono-black player, I could see how this would be nice, especially if you pack high CMC creatures and your opponents have weenies. In multiplayer it's pretty good, but I wouldn't use it in duels.

Holy crap. I wound up here after damnation and consume the meek. This card is bonkers. Every black EDH deck needs one. Stunning, especially for Mercadian Masques.

@Kirbster:
Sorry, but their CMC stays the same, even if you cast them for cheap. Look at the rulings for Avatar of Woe.

This card is lethal against token and weanie and is great for keeping your own fatties on the table. Whatever you can't kill can be taken down by the plethora of spot removal that Black has available. And since so many Black creatures love to be sacrificed anyway, it isn't bad when it hits your own creatures. Still, I'd prefer using Damnation between the two.

yey, first comment!

Anyway, lovely card! In a creature removal deck, combined with a few avatar of woe, this is a pure winner!

this is awesome when you desperately need to break a stalemate with a token deck. or a lot of decks, for that matter.

Death Cloud is the same cmc and much more fun, but this has its uses
