At first I was like "meh." but then I looked at the art and realized that the art was of an exploding elephant . I now love this card, even if it's pretty bad.

Seven?! They could have at least used Phyrexian mana symbols for this one.

It should either cost {2} less or be an instant.

{7} cmc gets me an instant-speed Rout; there's no reason Ichor Explosion couldn't have been an instant.

However, the first time I saw it, I did think of one thing it could be used for: Kresh the Bloodbraided EDH. The sacrifice is part of the cost, so Kresh gets the pump before this resolves; he survives, everything else dies. Just sac something arbitrarily large like Lhurgoyf or Lord of Extinction.

On second thought though, this isn't so good: Kresh will also get the -X/-X, so he has to be already pumped if you want to get a swing in. Also, he probably won't get pumped by the other creatures who die in the boardwipe because because their power will be 0. Then you'll have to survive a go-around in which you've become the prime target...

Yeah, what am I thinking- for this cmc I could just about be playing Bloodfire Colossus/autocard... (see all)

Engineered Explosives 2.0

You wonder why? F-ing exploding elephants in the artwork! That imagery is pure awesomeness.

An indestructible/protection-proof field wipe. It just won't totally end the hugest of the huge. Chances are it's overcosted by 1 or 2.

A "little bit" expensive.... 1/5 stars from me.

The first explosion that didn't excite...anyone.

If the Brothers Grimm wrote Dumbo, it would look like this.

Combos with Hyalopterous Lemure for a 2-card infinite combo.
