This card is deadly first turn...IT's legal in Vintage because hands do empty pretty quickly in the format...

This was the original "broken" card in my play circle back in the days of only Alpha and Beta. If you managed to obtain a whole playset of them, nobody ever wanted to play you (ante was still played for too so games really meant something!); turn 1 Black Vise followed by a turn 2 Black Vise was absolutely devastating! The other "broken" card was Sinkhole, and the two of them combined... kiss you ante goodbye!

... legal4 in vintage, ... I've missed something ... what? no, this is not legal4 in vintage.
n-e-way, this is a TOTALLY restricted card to me.

Card L+

Very nice early game card, not so much late game. A nice card nonetheless.

I actually had fun building a casual deck based around having this card deal lasting damage. 4 of these with Mishra's Helix and Psychic Venom, with some Sign in Bloods for good measure. Keep their hand full by tapping their lands (hopefully Psychic Venomed ones), Sign in Blood to keep their hand big, and I even threw in an Ankh of Mishra to persuade them not to play lands out of their hand. Fun deck. Can't use in a legal format, though. Restrictions-BAH!
