I love the cycle of the "pick your poison" cards. Browbeat is my favorite one.

I agree with you guys. Breaking Point is probably one of the most solid red cards I've ever seen. It's either a cheap Wrath, else it's one of the most efficient burn spells in Magic. But, as stated by Piechart, this usually doesn't work when you need a wrath the most. Therefore, I suggest playing it alongside some Volcanic Fallouts, Pyroclasms and Furnace of Rath to maximize the carnage. With a Furnace on the battlefield, your opponent is usually more likely to let you sweep the board than take 12 direct damage - especially if you're running a burn deck!

And I agree with you, Stygimoloch; this card excells at messing with your opponent's plans. Now, not only does he have to worry about his life total becoming a constant target for your burn spells, but he also have to take care not to have too many creatures on the battlefield while having a low life total. Playing around the Breaking Point is a pretty harsh challenge unle... (see all)

hey! interesting card. i would love to include this to a deck with creatures that deals damage when they die. mudbutton torchrunner, stalking vengeance, perilous myr. even murderous redcap and kokusho, the evening star!

do you want to destroy all our creatures or do you want to take six and i'm going to swing my creatures for more damage.

Best comment I've ever seen on Gatherer.

Anyway, this card is cool, but it suffers from Browbeat syndrome, in that the effect you need most will nearly never occur, somewhat obsoleting the card's efficiency. Of course, it's useful without a doubt when going against a creature heavy deck with a burn deck. But that's about it.

The flavor text on Gatherer for this card is missing the exclamation point.

Cheap Wrath of God or cheap 6 damage. Unfortunatly, when you most need a Wrath, it doesn't work unless opponent has < 7 life. But one of the best cards for a simple burn if played correctly. 3 mana for 6 damage is otherwise nonexistent on any individual card.

Giving choice is bad. The question is, are the effects the opponent can choose devastating enough that they outweigh the fact you gave them that choice?

In the case of this card, in a burn deck, absolutely.

I absolutely fell in love with this at the Judgment prerelease. A lot of players don't like giving an opponent any choices, but personally I enjoy playing mind games, trying to get them to make the wrong choice - or else forcing them into a lose/lose situation and throwing them off their game, mentally, and this is one of the best cards for that. If only I could play it without humming Rob Van Dam's WWE theme music...

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
