I'm fascinated by the interplay between this, Asphyxiate, and inspired.

The white card removes a tapped creature. Tapped here represents some act of aggression, some place where that creature has taken action - perhaps with one of the tapping auras - against you ,or in benefit to their player. Excoriate is thus a form of white vengeance, punishment for wrong action.

But what happens if you don't act? If you hang back in fear of being punished? You asphyxiate. You cease to breath. Your stagnation kills you, as the very life force itself turns against you.

and what is inspiration? That thing sought by artists everywhere? It is to walk the line between excoriation and asphyxiation. It is to be at risk to both. Only in the face of that risk does inspiration arise.

Parasophia would be proud.

Well things that are tapped are usually attacking and thus a problem. Card makes sense to me.

Dear Born of the Gods, your black exile spell is more powerful than your white one. Just wanted to let you know. Cheerio!

HEY! SO THIS IS A CARD! And.. that's.. all I have to say about this. Good in Limited OBVIOUSLY since removal is so awful in the format. Otherwise, don't feel bad if you leave your playset out in the rain or ruin them in the wash.

I like how Erebos and Heliod are tag teaming the pesky demon.
