@chaosjuggler:
Yes, it can: Instant? Dredge? Something dawning on you?
If you troll with Storm Crow comments, they should at least be correct.

I really like the design of this card, this is handy reusable creature removal. Dependant on format there are some meta creatures you'll be able to finish off with this spell. Randy Gallegos did a nice job there, too.

Just a note: U can good rid of 2 toughness with this. During ur upkeep, cast it, then dredge it back, then cast it again. So yeah, it kills storm crow.

Really cool art and function. Recurrent removal = fun times.

A pretty good card, even in a deck where it's the only dredge. Killing dorks like Birds of Paradise every turn is quite useful.

At Jerry: nope, cause it says if you do dredge for three, return it. You can only draw if you don't. So I guess you could technically think about it alot, but you can't dredge more than three.

Anything at instant speed with recurrence and strategy setup is excellent. Its a multi function card for 1 mana.

Fills a very specific role in Extended and Vintage dredge. Irreplaceable.

@ DaaNz. Yes it can. Combine it with a graveyard of 20 cards and Visions of Beyond. Learn to troll.

Put this in my Zombie deck for the same reason as I did to Rain of Embers in my burn deck: it kills all those X/1 wretches my buddies are so fond of, all while filling another role (which in this case is filling my graveyard). Dredge is such an awesome mechanic, and Darkblast bears this mechanic nicely because it's so easy (and effective) to cast right after you draw it in early game.
Playing it also made me realize something about elf decks: many of them depend on turn 1-2 acceleration and play with as few as 10 lands. Screwing up their early creature drops dismembers them quite well.

Turn 1:
Elf Player: Llanowar Elves.
Me: Darkblast. IT SHALL GENERATE MANA IN HELL.
Turn 2:
Elf Player: Arbor Elf.
Me: Darkblast. IT SHALL JOIN ITS POINTY-EARED LITTLE FRIEND IN HELL.

That's pretty demoralizing for an elf deck, since it's just lost all its tempo (and may as well have run out of lands in hand).
