The flavor text made me think of something:
In Magic's multiverse, odds are there exists a phobia that describes the fear of going on the street and/or looking straight on eye level while under way since you might encounter a Goron and get turned into stone from her gaze.
Gorgophobia!

Weirdest part is - it might actually exist and haunts some unfortunate, deranged fantasy-obsessed conspiracy theorists.

Well, removal for one black is always situational. Of course Murder is better, but it's also much harder to cast in multicolour decks that can't afford to spend a bjillion credits on dual lands.

This card appears good at first glance, but not so much once you take a look at what else is available in the current Standard format. Both Murder and Tragic Slip are better universal removal spells and between the Orzhov / Dimir / Golgari / Rakdos Guildgates and their counterpart shock lands, there is no reason NOT to run Murder despite the BB in it's casting cost. Also, Tragic Slip is a one mana insta-kill on nearly anything (especially with Morbid being an easy trigger).

This card is, unfortunately, only good in limited formats in which the others are not available.

I think Murder would be better in most situations. It's only less expensive when you're destroying a creature with 1 or 0 power. Plus it can be stopped by Frontline Medic...

Well, I guess playing Defenders just got more difficult.

@Natural Speaking : Exactly! This is a decent removal spell and it's even greater since it can remove walls for very cheap.
Take that Tree of Redemption!

Don't underestimate this in limited:

Like Death Wind, it's a non-restricted piece of removal. It's better against small support cards (something like Taunting Elf, for example), and there's no mana restrictions, like on Drain Life.

I think this would've had a better place in RtR (considering the few defenders in the set AND since Vraska was printed in that set), but don't underestimate this card.

However, sideboard this card out when you're playing against Gruul: I'm pretty sure that if the creature you're targeting becomes bigger, the spell fizzles.

I didn't get any new Gorgons this time, but this fits a Gorgon-themed deck perfectly.
