Stab it in the neck with the pointy bit of your sword.

First rule of Setessan Tactics: You do not talk about Setessan Tactics.

I guess the automatic comparison is Prey Upon. This is double the cost and requires you to tap your creature. It is however instant speed which helps you mitigate that cost. It can also hit multiple creatures, scaling into a board wipe. The +1/+1 isn't much, but should let you trade up in the early game.
My verdict? These are totally different cards and will probably see play into different types of decks. Prey Upon is better removal, but this will see play in slower decks.

I do feel that tapping a bunch of your dudes and killing a dude or a bunch of dudes like that really does give you this image of working together and beating something tactically. Good flavor in terms of tying the mechanics to it.

I for one think is this Green Gold! Everyone knows the power of Prey Upon! Cheap Green removal is a beautiful thing to see, now make a version that allows me to prey upon two, three (Or in my treefolk deck which has more land and mana then sense) ALL THE CREATURES. So after a horrible mass murder (Speaking of which, in the right deck, this kills two creatures for the same cost as Murder!) I'll be able to launch a powerful attack! Or maybe I could just find way to untap all my creatures and finish it there. This can be game ender, a game change, for that CMC you can't argue with the results.

The +1/+1 is just gravy on these buttery biscuits of goodness~

6/5, would run eight, will settle for 4


I think your lacking some imagination when it comes to the possibility of this card. Prey Upon is better for a single target, but that's not what this card about. Casting without striving is a waste of this card completely. It's one of the few ways mono-green can do removal on larger sc... (see all)

Bow of Nylea + Pheres-Band Warchief + a few other centaurs.

finally, a plague wind in green (assuming you have big creatures, which is the point of green).

easy 5 stars card - removal will see constructed play.
