Dies to Counterspell.

@WrathOfShane: You must be psychic. Enter Murder.

{sigh} I don't think I want to be around for all the crowing of "dies to Murder" comments, though...

Random conversation that really came up one day at lunch:

Friend 1: If you were to kill yourself, how'd you do it?
Me (playing Magic): I'd Banefire myself.
Friend 2: Lol, we weren't talking about Magic.
Friend 1: You know, I think I'd Doom Blade myself.
Friend 2: You can't. You're immune to Doom Blade.
*general lulz"

If you get it, you've either been playing too much Magic or listening to too many racist jokes.

Dies to Doom Blade...

Posted By: Mid_Squad (7/7/2011 5:46:31 PM)


Throughout my fantasy career I have seen just about every sword
I have battled with and against frostmourne in my time with the Horde
I have read of Excalibur, Masamune, Hywelbane and Sanglamore
I have seen scimitars, broadswords and other weapons of war
I have played against war and peace, famine and feast
I have seen razors, daggers, dirks and the claws of the beast
I have even seen the horror of a certain jitte
But there is one blade that really ruins my day
That one frustrating blade is the blade of doom
Void without substance but it cuts like steel
Removal flying around, I am like “for real!?”
I sac my 20 tokens with a doubling season down
Eighty one one army deserving of its renown
I am pretty happy, gonna beat him with my zoo
But something is wrong…my friend taps for two
One swamp…two swamps I may have to bite him
I known what is coming and I must say it looks grim
Doom blade, doom blade, on my Kozilek
Doom blade, Doom blade, I‘m a crying wreck
I play mostly green and a bit of... (see all)

My friend once told me, "Don't use doom blade. You're better than that."

Iconic black removal 5/5

black: destruction doom blade
white: exile path to exile
red: burn lightning bolt
blue: counter counterspell
green: combat tricks (!?) giant growth


I totally agree on that point.
It was more meant like its a classic black MECHANIC - i know that its not classic in the sense of "old".
The examples i chose were the ones that (on my opinion) are the best/most commonly used nowadays for each mechanic/color. (although "best" is relative, i know - you get the idea)
Thats the reason why there is doom blade in Black and counterspell in Blue on my list.

But i agree that the wording "classic" is surely a little bit misleading - deleted it :)

For being talked about so much, people rarely choose this thing in constructed. This thing its nice, but situationally annoying (That opponent who only has black creatures.) I cant wait for the black instant that says destroy target creature. 1BlackBlack would be fair i think.

Rend Flesh and Eyeblight's Ending are as close as you can get for the same cmc. If you add other colors it gives you stuff like Putrefy, Maelstrom pulse, and of course Vindicate. Would it really break the game to add destroy target creature to 1BlackBlack Instant, of course not. That card would be far worse then Terminate, if the colors are relevant of course. I think its about time they gave me a destroy spell thats not situationally annoying.

When they make a new timeshifted set, they should print this:

Destiny Blade (1W)
Instant (Common)
Destroy target nonwhite creature.

Overpowered, it can kill Storm Crow for only 1B.
