-4/-4 is a heck of a lot, and kills a lot of crap you'll find on turn 4 or so. Cycling is actually kinda decent on this thing too.

Grasp of darkness doesn't cantrip. And it still isnt as good as Sudden death either. 1 colorless is easily worth it to blow shenanigans out of the water.

this was good, until they made Grasp of Darkness.

A great sideboard against decks that play lots of 1 toughness creatures - it's an easy 2-for-1.

It's a lot weaker than Electrolyze most of the time (which can even 3 for 1 those sorts of decks) but it's black and the fact that you don't have to cycle it and can use it to kill a bigger creature if you're desperate is a big deal.

I'd cycle this 90% of the time though.

Killing something with this when you cycle it for {1}{B}{B} is so good as mentioned by others, Grasp of Darkness is much better in most cases.

That said, the cycling ability is much more difficult to counter, it can still be done with stuff like Stifle.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
