Increadibly powerful in Limited. M:tG R&D member and former Pro Tour player Zac Hill has stated that this is "probably the best or second-best black common in Odyssey Limited. Neutralizing two of your opponent's threats with a single card is just that good."

This is a 12 point life-swing over two turns, but outclassed by sorin's vengeance for sure.

Worthless. Six mana (and nine mana flashback) need to perform far better effects than slight life difference.

Man! If I had 16 black mana, there's nothing I'd rather spend it on.


Waaaaait a minute! That's untrue.

Here's the article that A3Kitsune mentioned: http://www.wizards.com/magic/magazine/article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/ld/173

Unfortunately, "good in limited" is too often a euphemism for "terrible unless the only alternatives are worse." Saying something is better than Filthy Cur, Zombie Assassin, and Patriarch's Desire is not exactly a testament to the card's power.

@Sheph: When playing Magic it's important to understand what "removed from the game" means. And no, I'd say about 10% of cards are turds that won't shine no matter how much you polish them. That percentage goes up the older the card is.

Man, you must be STARVING to cast morbid hunger...

Just remember kids: A starving Planeswalker is a dead planeswalker.

It is true, this card is very expensive. Take for example a card with the same effect, Essence Drain (one black mana, and 4 cololess). Same effect but 1 colorless cheaper, and only requires 1 black mana. Usually that is how it works with flashbacks though, they add a little to the mana cost.

My point is however, this card is not "worthless", rather it is synergetic. I have this card in a flashback deck, and i can cast it on you..say... 40 times? I only have one but because of it's flashback ability it has advantages other cards don't. Combine it with 3 or 4 catalyst stones and you are looking at 2 to 3 mana 6 life swing.

When rating cards it is important to understand that almost every card has it's place in magic, and it's spot to shine.
