@Vakyoom No. Nope. You're using "strictly better" completely wrong. Abrupt decay is not strictly better, as it does some things differently instead of just doing them the same but better/cheaper. It can destroy more types of cards and cannot be countered, yes. But for one thing, it can only target a permanent with a CMC of 3 or less. Consider the number of planeswalkers that fall under that category... you have 4. Out of 33 (you will get 34 results if you search for planeswalker cards but one of them is a flip card). Yeah.

Further, consider that abrupt decay, while it has the same CMC as Dreadbore requires green mana instead of red. This alone would be enough to disqualify calling it "strictly better".

Looks like some fun spot removal for red/black. Would be a 5 at instant speed. 4.5/5

I love being able to stop a game with Pillar of Flames and Tragic Slips, this just gets me cleanly to Vampire Nighthawk and Tribute to Hunger without the slightly awkward jump through Crimson Muckwader.

I love you Rakdos.

EDIT: also @DacenOctavio
White mages still have O-Ring. I agree, it's certainly no Swords to Plowshares but still.

What is it with the Rakdos and drill-shaped stuff? Are they all Gurren-Lagann fans?

"In the Magic game, you play the role of a planeswalker—a powerful wizard who fights other planeswalkers for glory, knowledge, and conquest. Your deck of cards represents all the weapons in your arsenal. It contains the spells you know and the creatures you can summon to fight for you." ~What is Magic: The Gathering?


Dreadbore=instant win?

Planeswalker removal for two mana? This card belongs in the sideboard at the very least in every deck with these colors. Hell you could even run it in your deck just for creature removal.

Sadly, the one planeswalker I want to shred, Jace TMS, is within the color of counterspells.

@slydragoon, of course you support WotC when you buy singles. The more singles people buy, and the more they're prepared to pay for them, the greater the incentive for store owners and individuals to buy more boxes. High priced cards DO sell more packs.

I wouldn't mind so much for this, but there's just very little good quality removal at common or even uncommon right now. Victim of Night? Searing Spear? Ultimate Price? At least there's still O-ring.

I'm no WotC hater, I just bought an RTR box. But to suggest they aren't trying to sell progressively more cards is naive.
