Tendrils costs 2 less which is very crucial against aggro decks. Look at the current t2. Vampires would get obliterated without tendrils and t6 you would normally be dead against a RDW. I like this cause it can kill players but is often too slow in an aggro matchup. would be nice for sideboard. you could take out tendrils and put in this against control matchups and such.

Anyone else see this and think Legend of Zelda: the Wind Waker? ...And Maybe Twilight Princess, I can't remember if they kept those annoying hand enemies. YOINK.

Actually Corrupt hits either creatures or the opponent, hence the higher price.

When I was younger, I always added 2-4 of these in my mono-black decks... and if I lived long enough to use one, it nearly always won me the game.

the thing about tendril is that it affects creatures, and this hits your opponent. 3/5

Oh look a floormaster. I agree with the comments saying Tendrils of Corruption is better. This card is mostly a removal spell with some lifegain. Tendrils costs {2} less and is an instant. The lifegain is very relevant against aggressive decks, and against those decks, your lifegain coming down on T4 instead of after you are dead is nice. Furthermore, most of the time killing a creature is more important than just doming them with the damage since monoblack isn't the most aggressive archetype. That said, the ability to target the face is sometimes nice, and with two in hand oftentimes you can just win when you get the mana to cast them.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
