Like has been mentioned, this is the ideal removal for formats like Legacy where some of the scariest critters cost the least (Tarmogoyf, Phyrexian Dreadnought ,etc.). For casual, just stick with good ol' Terror or Doom Blade.

Interestingly this removal is more valuable in competitive circles than at the kitchen table.

and this is apparently being reprinted in worldwake, gonna be interesting as this can take out some of the best guys in standard, Drudge Skeleton, Vampire Nighthawk, Kazandu Blademaster

Awesome card, will be specially good since WWK is supposed to have many multikicker cost creatures (low CMC).

Kills tokens good too.

What? Drudge skeletons is horrible in standard!

But certainly a cool card.

Very solid and very useful, I miss it so much...

i'll probably be running these alongside doomblade come worldwake in my vampire deck. doomblade takes care of the bigger creatures smother can't handle and smother takes care of the small guys & black.

I think the most important thing is that this was one of the best black kill spells because of its ability to target creatures of any colour. This and swat were big improvements over ashes to ashes and canabalize . In mono black that kind of versatility matters.

in type 1, where the most relevant creatures are 3cmc or less..this is a very good stopper..

very good observation by holgir, this indeed is less effective in casual a.k.a. timmy's battleground..
