Captain, I am detecting correct use of "decimate" in this sector.

Funnily enough, this will kill an opponent by decking out before it does anything else (assuming you only use this to kill a player)...

I like having multiple win conditions in a deck, in case my opponent manages to pull off some infinite life combo or the like. This gives you alternate win conditions, while still furthering (albeit inefficiently) whatever your primary condition is.

Hmmmm... 4 copies of this and 4 Caress of Phyrexia only sets you back about 2 bucks. Ridiculous budget tri-win deck is withen grasp. So many extra slots for cards to smoothen the process. This sounds fun.

@bay_falconer: It also septidecimates their library.

This card wins the "Near-Death Experience" Award of 'Card I'll Probably Never Play With, But I'm So Happy It Exists'.

I feel like this is one of those cards just made for the lolz, and I'm actually okay with that.

I still don't want to open it, though.

Hee hee hee hee hee.

This is freaking adorable.

Did you all know that the dictionary definition of 'decimate' is to "reduce something by a tenth" ?

1 poison counter is 1/10 of poisoned
2 life is 1/10 of dead
6 cards is 1/10 of decked

Maybe their trying to encourage Johnny here.

Can you make a deck that Poisons & Kills at the exact same time? If so, you are an uber-Johnny.
If you can Poison, Kill, & Mill at the same time, you are the Johnny god.

Really the card makes a lot of sense.

Indirect, unstoppable, and repeatable poison costs 4 with contagion clasp or Engine with proliferate. 2 Damage has never been repeatable for less total mana, unless it involves some kind of sacrifice clause. Mill 6 rarely happens for less mana, and certainly never in 1 card.

Though it's really not such a bad late draft selection, especially if you can't find something in your colors. Slapping those last bits of poison on can be a real pain. And considering most decks are at 40, and stalls are common, repeatable milling 6 can be pretty terrifying.

Have all the win conditions. All of them.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
