This is a great and versatile removal card in EDH.

Amazingly versatile.

The look on an opponents face the first time a mono-red deck gets 'destroy target creature' is well worth the drawback.

2 stars? You've got to be kidding me. This an extremely useful spell. 3 life is not too much; it's only the last point that counts.

Non-damage based creature removal is not common in red, so this is good card as is Fissure.

It's always made me wonder why a little life loss in black is nothing but in other colours it always means that most players think the card unplayable.

So versatile that the casting cost and drawback pale in comparison. This guy does everything.

One of the best EDH kill cards out there; you'll always have something to target with it.

Also, WotC's hatred for enchantment removal in Red is hilarious when they had no problem printing Pongify in Blue. "Oh, but that was in Time Spiral." Yeah, and did you see any efficient Red enchantment removal in Time Spiral?

Surprisingly, it's better than it looks as it's versatile and can kill problem creatures at an aggresive cost. However, it's too slow to be played in the formats in which it's currently legal.

It's like the red version of Creeping Mold except this destroys Creatures instead of Enchantments. Definately better in that sense, but I wish red had more enchantment hate.

I have it in most mono-red commander/EDH decks. It's just too versatile, and the three life normally hurt less than what the permanent you kill would do to you (not to mention that you start with 40 life in that format). 3.5 from me

If you're playing red, you're doing more damage to them than they are to you. 3 isn't really going to hurt much. The fact that you can shoot down their angel, sphinx, or other powerful finisher with just one card is quite the boon for red. As an LD spell, it's pretty mediocre, but at least it always kills manlands!
