Who cares if the blade is nowhere close to the heart? Isn't a punctured lung usually lethal? And slipping a blade between ribs does require a bit of skill. The card works on a larger portion of creatures then Doom Blade, but it's not instant and it costs 1 more. It's an ok card.

Notice the pattern of the black (blood?) around the victim's eye. Then check out Royal Assassin. That can't be a coincidence. (It's the same eye, too.)

Maybe the art was flipped before printing? Maybe it is a reflection? Could be a hundred things.

@roguepariah: Maybe the victim had dextrocardia. Not everyone's heart is on the left, you know.

Considering Royal Assassin, I think this could have been an instant, though it'd have to be heavier in the colored cost in that case, like {1}{B}{B}. Yes, it takes out most attacking creatures... but it doesn't take out creatures with Vigilance, so there'd still be a nice balance between it and Doom Blade, as an instant Assassinate effect couldn't take out Serra Angel but could get Phyrexian Obliterator, whereas Doom Blade would be reversed.

With a name like 'Yurin', I can see why he decided to become an assassin.

@boneclub: If you look closely, you'll notice the victim is an elf. Maybe elves' hearts are on the right side of their chests..?

This is one of the easiest requirements on a cheap destruction spell. Nicely balanced while remaining useful.

"Knife through the heart! Cause you were tapped! Attack me and you'll get stabbed."
