@Gradiusthefox This doesn't target or cause damage so protection from red wont stop the life "loss".

This guy already has the 2 abilities that make it work more in your favour: Trample and Haste

Since you only get 2 counters no matter the life paid, it be safe to put the number at 2, if your opponent bids a 1, your ogre is now a 5/5 that will hit for 5 damage immediately assuming no combat trickery.

If he bids 2 he loses 2 life and you still get a 5/5.

3 or higher just mean your ogre counters have been converted to life loss for your opponent

Good for casual decks

You have no idea how many games this has won me because other players end up NOT reading the entire card before selecting there number for keeps, I have KO's at least... 4 or 5 people because they pick a huge number and kill themselves XD

every game should end like this. mindslaver. on your turn show and tell menacing ogre via leyline of anticipation. i think you choose 500 billion i choose 1. you win. menacing ogre is a 3/3. game over

Flash in Menacing Ogre with Vedalken Orrery at the end of your turn if I have more life than you. Pay all but one of my life. Upkeep, sac Magus of the Mirror, swing for lethal.
