This card is amazing. I wouldn't even care if it sucked, with this flavour/art/flavour text I'd love it regardless.

I hope I'll open one of these in a draft, I so want to cast this and ruin the game. I will probably lose, but it'd be so worth it.

In the prereleaseI won a game with the opponent with no cards on the board or in hand with 2 5/5 flying demonds thanks to using this and demonic rising. A very powerful effect that has to be built around for it not to hurt you as much as your opponent

Proliferate? This seems to be The Abyss, only toned down a lot. If you can get several counters on it, it'll be painful, but this strikes me as taking too long to get going. Now, if it were at the start of every upkeep... it would probably be too good, alas.

A black deck with dangerous ability, just as it should be. With proper card draw this card would wipe your opponent's advantage clean while keeping yours.

: NaJin It that betrays does not work with this card. You're EXILING not SACRIFICING.

Token generator? or Mind Unbound // Psychic Vortex?

Edit : Well, I'm misread... this one is unlike smoke stack and can't combo with It that betray .

This card has many, many uses. One is to run with discard. Get your opponent down to zero cards in hand, then drop this bad boy. You get to lose cards in hand, whereas your opponent has to sacrifice permanents. After a couple rounds of this, simply sacrifice Descent to itself, and look at the board state.

If you had merely 2 more cards in hand than your opponent (Mind Rot + Mind Rot), you have a three-permanent advantage. Which is worse, losing cards in hand, or permanents? Well they 2 more permanents than you for the cost of only your cards in hand, in addition to the fact you can sacrifice it to itself gives you an advantage of 3.

Alternatively, run with card draw, token making, etc. for similar effects.

Oddly no one has mentioned the obvious in-set synergy with Griselbrand yet.
