I like this card in big games - its a good lightning rod for disenchants otherwise its a lot of fun. Its really good in a sorcery deck, especially in combination with cards like Marsh Flitter, Dread Drone, Endrek Sahr, or just about anything that gives you tokens. I would like to try to build a black/blue or black/red with the viashinos.

Here's an idea:
If it's a B/R deck, why not run both Pandemonium and this?

I feel obliged to comment on this card just because it's an important part of my B/R deck. I use it in conjunction with Viashino creatures (Viashino Sandscout, Viashino Sandstalker), clearing away blockers on my turn and returning them to my hand at the end of my turn to prevent the same from happening to them. Obviously this isn't the most efficient strategy (easily susceptible to discard/counter strategies, for example) but I love the hit and run feel that the Death Match creates. Not a "good" card, but a very fun one.

I like the idea of your deck, ichorix. Very nice.

Indeed, Ichorix has a good idea. The less straightforward decks are the ones I like most, so I give you props on that one.

I'm currently working out an idea for an Eldrazi/Patriarch's Bidding deck utilizing Ashes of the Fallen. So I can always appreciate an original idea from other people. :)

Seems like a somewhat weakened version of Pandemonium. Ichorix, you might be better off running Pandemonium in your deck, allowing your Sandstalkers & Sandscouts to deal twice the damage when your opponents are out of creatures... just sayin'...

And I'm not saying that Death Match is bad either - Death Match allows your small creatures to take down bigger threats that they wouldn't normally be able to take down with Pandemonium, though Pandemonium allows you to deal more damage directly to your opponent.

I like this one in combination with endless whisper in my B/R deck which only have 5 creatures

Not that I don't think that Ichorix's idea is good, I just don't have those cards. So I have been wracking my brain on this because it seems like it should do so much more than what I originally see( based on the high ratings you all gave it).

How about Asceticism? or Sword of Feast and Famine. Just save 2 mana for whomever is targeted.

Granted there are more combo's but I just threw out the ones that I have the cards to enact.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
