Before the final blow was struck, I tore open a portal in time and flung him into the future, where my evil is law!

A FOOLISH samurai warrior wielding a magic sword stepped forth to oppose me!

It's like playing a slightly discounted Lava Axe that gives them choices and can be naturalized. It's a rare.

2BB for 5 life loss is incredibly good.

Is there better?

Pillar Tombs of Aku 2BlackBlack
Target player loses 5 life.

Would you play it? Because that's what it is at best.

Except, you are all forgetting the main component of this spell.


"I don't want to lose 5 life, I will let the other guy do that, I have a disposable Saproling, I'm ok."

So as you see, especially in multiplayer, people will chump sacrifice to keep their five life. IMHO

Shouldn't have to sacrifice this, it would be good

It's even worse than that. If they do decide to sacrifice a creature, it'll come around to you and you will have to make the decision between 5 life or a creature. Horrible rare, indeed. I, for one, think it's worse than Lava Axe, even if it's one mana cheaper.

It's 4 mana for either destroying a creature or dealing 5 damage to an opponent. Because the opponent has to sacrifice a creature and doesn't target anything, it gets around protection, shroud, invulnerability, damage prevention, and so forth. If they don't sac a creature, then they take 5 unpreventable damage (unless they play an instant or have something that prevents them from losing life). It's a pretty decent card.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
