Using this with War Elemental in multiplayer = fun!

Stuffy Doll laughs at your so-called drawback

The point of this card is that it is 'colour-shifted'. That means they took a card that could have been printed in a different colour, and printed it in that colour. To change it would mean making it not a colour-shifted card. Pestilence is old which is why it may seem a little weird.

This card is extremely powerful. Mana dump that board wipes and kills your opponent.

Great with Spitemare, Stuffy Doll, or similar.

It kind of sounds like something you'd get if you ate too my chili peppers..."Dude, I had a total pyrohemia blowout last night."

Also, everyone loves red Pestilence! 4/5

pestilence for red, I cant complain!

Gives your Phytohydra permanent shade-pump ability! Cool card; I always loved Pestilence and it's not much of a stretch to give it to red. Come to think of it, it's more incongruous in black. Well done Wizards.

question: if at the end of my turn the only thing on the field is a spark elemental, can I place this ability on the stack before sacking the elemental, preserving this for a turn?

Lame T-T'

So much better as Pestilence!

Then again, I'm bias for my four decks of the apacalypse... Honestly though, they could have made red do damage and black to loss of life, and creatures get -1/-1 until end of turn or something..

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
