4.5/5 stars. It buffs. It spot removes (although sometimes it costs you 4 life to do so) and it has amazing art. Works best with cards like Ball Lightning and, of course, creatures who are going to die anyway due to a strong/er blocker/blocked creature in combat with it. 2 mana for 4 damage or to spot remove a creature...quite good...even if you lose a mogg fanatic, etc... along the way. This block had fling as well, so its really nice in a tempest block draft.

Add to your multiplayer deck and wait for one opponent to attack another =D

I really like how you can destroy a creature with this. Just cast it at the end of combat step (where they are still attacking and blocking creatures), and that's it. Sure, it's slowed by a turn but it's a red Terror for crying out loud.

Either a bad Fists of the Anvil on your guys, or one that can take out an opposing creature. Versatile, anyway.

Kill two opponent birds with one stone in multiplayer.

@draco_nite: Actually that card and Fists of the Anvil are two good examples where "strictly better" doesn't apply to either of them.
When used on your creature, you'd rather run the fists, since you probably don't want it dead at end of turn. When used on your opponen't creature, you'd obviously prefer Blood Frenzy.

Of course you can adapt your deck to that card so you only have creatures that regenerate, are indestructible or are sacrificed at end of turn anyways.
But that still doesn't make it 'strictly better', since that refers to the general case.

I remember liking that card a lot, especially for the fact that it's one of a few red spells that can destroy a creature directly and not by causing damage (which was pretty important to me in my crappy deck back then, since the only possibility to get rid of fatties would have been... (see all)

5'd just for the art. Also, I don't consider this strictly better than Fists of the Anvil, you can use this on an opponent's card as a roundabout destroy spell.

What's with the power level errata? :-(

Can't you just splash green for Berserk? Not that hard to do...

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
